He has every right to have his opinion and complain, but I have to say, what a cry baby! If you don't like it, either ignore it or vote with your wallet and don't buy any DLC.

It's Capcom's business if they want to charge or not. If he were the one who could earn an extra $1 million by putting some more work in designing bonus costumes, I doubt you'd hear any $0.02 complaints.

I don't know why you have disagrees. It's the truth, if you don't like something, ignore it and move on!

I understand your angle, however DLC has replaced secrets and unlockable items in the last couple years alone, that's my only real discrepancy. Too add to that, the MSRP for Street Fighter 4 was 69.99 which in Canada adds to 79.08, that's alot of money for one game and people expect alot of game for that money.

A few years ago these costumes would have been unlockables. Now they are DLC with a price tag. It's a scam and it really sucks that companies are doing this because they are no longer selling a complete game, they are taking pieces out and charging you for them to make more money in the long run. Another perfect example - Prince of Persia. When I beat it, I just had a feeling this couldn't be the end. Can it? Now there is new DLC, so apparently it was not.

In a funny way it seems like we've sacrificed unlockable items and cheat codes for trophies and achievements.

In the defense of Street Fighter there is the outfits you unlock for use in HOME which is a pretty creative advertising idea.

xbots LOVE to pay for DLC for their new games from you, while later down the line PS3 owners get all that DLC ALREADY in the game. Same exact thing happened with Lost Planet. 360 owners had to pay for a couple map packs as DLC and when the ps3 version hit shelves later, it came with all those packs. God Blademask is such a f!cking retard.
