"One such title is Dragon’s Dogma, where the decision to include some additional (but not all planned additional) game content for the game on disc was made at the beginning of the game’s development cycle as at the time this was determined to be the most efficient way of ensuring certain content was made available."

There you have it...

No guys, we shouldn't excpect good things from Capcom yet (concerning DLC). Now they will cut some content from the disc and sell it as DLC.

Or maybe they will put locked DLC on disc (just like we have right now) + aditional and overpriced DLC at PSN/xbox live.

They will just say that then when the DLC download comes out for future titles, they will secretly add hi-res images of a c*ck and balls to the download until it adds up to a gig or so.

Lol I knew Dragons Dogma would be the same and thats exactly why I won't be buying it. Also they are going to re evaluate DLC. All that means is they just won't include it on the disk. They'll still rip out half a game like they did with RE ORC and charge 20 euros for it one month later.

What makes me sick is how from the start of development for their titles they are thinking of DLC. Seriously no wonder all their games these past 3 years have been trash. How you gonna deliver a good titles when from the start your just thinking of how to make more money from the players.

I remember the incident with Lost Planet 2 when Capcom cut content to sell it later, because it couldn't fit on the 360 disc...

That's what its called re-evaluating...

Not gonna buy any Capcom game unless is used...

They say that since they only started re-evaluating last month, certain games will ship with on disc dlc because the have already planned it this way and are unable to remedy it at this late stage. One such game being Dragon's Dogma.
I have a solution for your dilemma Capcom, one that I'm sure never crossed your minds. . .keep the dlc on the disc and make it free. You're welcome.
Now your new and improved attitude towards on disc dlc need not clash with your inability to simply remove the content from the disc.

MysticStrummer3666d ago

They should give out codes for that DLC if you purchase the game during the first week or two after release, then drop the price of the game a little but start charging for the DLC.

AKA How do we get more DLC onto the disc?

Patriots_Pride3666d ago

AKA how can we hide the DLC on the disc so consumers don't notice.

Kratoscar20083666d ago

if this is true, this is the beggining of the return of the old Capcom, wich would be great.

Lord_Sloth3666d ago

Depends on how they reevaluate it.

Uncharted2Vet3666d ago (Edited 3666d ago )

not really what if the Re-Evaluate and decide they want to put even more disc locked content into their games

Kratoscar20083666d ago

they would be committing suicide for themselves, unless the "fans" still support the shaddy on disk DLC and that would be sad.

Reborn3666d ago

Well, why not just unlock that content, make it free. Then simply do DLC the correct way? Careful analysis should show they have methods which can be put in place.
