Capcom has just announced that the new online multiplayer Versus mode for Resident Evil 5 will be available to download on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network from tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7th.
But since I enjoy the game so much, I'll pay $5 more for this. I hate that I'm doing it because it only means more paid for content that should have been on the disc, but I love the game so far....
I liked the part where they had Lickers... they made me smile. There was actually suspense there for a moment till we got back to killing "zombies" with guns.
I didn't buy RE5 because you can't move while aiming. I can't understand for the life of me how a competitive mode would be in the least bit fun with that mechanic. Do you just run into the open and see who can aim at the other persons head faster? How is that fun? It's going to turn into a bunch of people running serpentine while occasionally stopping to shoot...
This is just as bad as paying for costumes in Street Fighter IV. You're a suckha if you pay for this "DLC"
i wanna get this feature but the only way to do it is to pay for it , and when you do you feel like you have been suckered. now gget this, how would it of felt if mercenaries mode was the dlc and it didnt exist as on the disk as it is now..... imagine that you definetly know that that would be the biggest piss take. but this slayers thing is new,. at the end of the day you should be glad it wasnt merc mode. if you really want extra mode then its up to the individual, me? i dont know what to do even at this point of time. im waiting on ppls views and videos of youtube to make my purchase. yeh sf4 costumes are more worse than this
As much as I enoy RE5 it seems as if it was a HUGE scam by Capcom. Even so Capcom is lucky I am a huge RE fan otherwise...pfft wouldnt count on me to get this. RE5 FTW!
Some peole will buy and enjoy it but that's them. I'm not going to knock them for spending money on this. But in my view, I think it's BS. Yea, no RE had a multiplayer component before, but it's already on the disk and to be honest with you, multiplayer is standard affair in that if it's made, it should be included as part of the original package. Not an add on. But hey, it's a free capitalist society and I'm sure people are going to buy the game and enjoy it. I won't.
I wouldn't pay for this s*** and I really like Resident Evil 5.
I want to see what its like and then come on N4G and b*tch about it. I want to set a horrible precedent that its ok to charge for the multiplayer portion of the game. I cant help my consumer monkey brain and its desire to waste my money. why are you going to buy the dlc even though you know its wrong?
That's what I don't understand. If you know it's a scam--and even say so before justifying your purchase with a "I love RE 5 so.."--then why buy it? Companies don't care if you have reservations about it. Or complain that they are "ripping off the consumer." They care if you buy it or don't. You can claim it's a "scam" or whatever, but if you still buy it then you're just perpetuating the cycle.
Principle reason DLC/patches on the PC are free. Publishers have learned they won't pay for them. Perhaps I'm of the type that doesn't mind paying for DLC. Capcom's explanation that the DLC wasn't in the budget of the original game was good enough for me. RE5 is so good that I don't mind giving them extra money :-p The counter argument is convincing in itself, but the multiplayer update adds something that wasn't there in the first place. Be happy the game will have an enhanced multiplayer mode.
didnt buy the game because of the controls and would never buy into this total scam even if I did buy the game...
only 150 points in Japan but its 400 here????? what the hell is that about? I just won 400 ms points in that tmobile promotion running on live and i was thinking abvout getting this but now that i know japan gets it for less than half what USA has to pay i have changed my mind. What a rip off
Vote with your wallet, and stop allowing this notion that "consumers will pay for anything as long as you call it a bonus" to thrive. Until Microsoft creates something like Home, I wont be renewing my LIVE subscription. I shouldnt have to pay to have the ability to buy content, and play online. Its basically like taxing the internet, and people just seem to eat it up, thereby showing companies that its okay to nickel and dime the consumer to death, because they'll keep paying.. It's very apparent that the "Pay to pay" and "Pay to play" ideal is starting to bleed over into other companies. I would like MS to make an MMORPG to go with the gold subscription, so that my purchase is justified. Because really I'm just paying an overhead premium to my already expensive internet bill.
So I'm not buying it.
it should of been on the disc?... every game this gen between PS3 and 360 has just about some form of aditional DLC that can be added to the game! You all complain that RE5 is the only game guilty of marketing DLC to add further interest in Capcoms product... DLC adds up in price over time, but if it makes my fav. games get more play time or make them more exciting, Im all for it!
I agree it's a scam. i rented the game and loved it though...The controls aren't bad at all. It made the game what it is. It's not Gears of War... But I don't see how the multiplayer would work unless maybe the used the cover mechanic and force you to sneak up on your opponent? I dont' know... The lickers where totally awesome in the game. I was really hoping I would get to see some classic zombies somewhere late in the game though. I was really hoping for that. That would have been an amazing surprise.
Loved the game all the way through to getting the Platinum and NO I won't be buying this. The content itself doesn't appeal and I wasn't impressed that Capcom announced this before the game was actually released. Sorry Capcom, I've paid out enough on RE5 already.
This is what happens when you develop multiplatform games for the 360. The full potential of the game is gimped by DVD9. I bet this versus feature would've been on the retail disc Day 1 if wasn't due to storage limitations.
as you? no need to say anymore, except CLUELESS NOOB! to everyone who complains about the price of this DLC, PLEASE do not get money from your daddy to buy it, we dont need any whining NOOBS playing this, thanks.
the download has 1.86MB. no space on the disc you said? stupidity of kids these days knows no limits...
its already on the disc obviously if the DLC is less than 2MB......another ripoff cause they know people will buy it.
i dont give a fvck what any of you guys say, because I can my decisions. Im buying this. It's an option and its not required. It's an option and its not required. It's an option and its not required. It's an option and its not required. It's an option and its not required. It's an option and its not required. Plus I gotZ moniez to burN!!1
Say champ, what is your favorite game on consoles? Oh yeah, nice to know, well say the developers decided not to include the multiplayer or extra content, and instead charged you seperately for things that should have been included to begin with, especially with a full priced retail game. See where the logic is, behind not paying for what should be included with a full retail release? You already pay ten dollars more than the PC counterpart of the console game, and customizable controls plus multiplayer is too much to ask for? I imagine that Capcom should charge for custom controller layouts, since they werent included with the retail release, yet everyone wants it. Its good that you have an excess of money in this time of economic difficulty, however by you paying for this DLC, your telling Capcom that it's okay to charge for something as simple as the ability to customize the button configuration.
On the PC it used to be fan service and you got things for free. Outside of some full blown expansion packs. Now companies want to nickel and dime you for things they used to include in the game or give away as a thank you. What's the worst is stuff on the disc that you have to buy to unlock...WTF?
I've been waiting for this. I love Resi 5, I've gotten the platinum and I want more from this game. I got it cheap, brand new on release day. I havent bought any DLC in a while. So I have money. I'm willing to pay for this. I dont feel scammed by Capcom this time. I'm buying and see nothing wrong with it.
I sold RE5 since the Devs put in the "puzzles" so I can have sooo much fun running around directing beams of sunlight to lower my "elevator." Left 4 Dead is a TRUE ZOMBIE GOREFEST!!
AND it has a price tag. ULTRA-LAME.
I know. You pwned me, but the thing is I wasnt expecting a multiplayer from resident evil 5, but now their giving me a chance to play mutiplayer. So im going to buy the add-on to play mulitplayer to try it out. Thats all. Oh and my favorite game is pokemon gold See ya!
ill be buying because i have the money :D
