I still have no idea why people are such up in arms about this. I tried asking this somewhere else and I mostly got insults...hooray internet.

Anyways, completely ignoring the whole license thing and pretending you absolutely owned everything on disc...it's still planned DLC. You might own what's on that disc, but it's still up to Capcom when to enable it. It doesn't matter if that DLC was finished three months prior to the game shipping or three months after, it's going to be actually turned on once they're good and ready for it to be turned on.

It really doesn't matter what's on the disc, the fact remains it's DLC. Like planned DLC or not (that's another argument), that's what it is. I just cannot see why people are so up in arms about this.

It's not shady because you've known for months at least that they're going to release DLC.



Wow, so Capcom MIGHT do the whole on disc DLC thing again.

What a complete waste of a game. So many people had high hopes for this. Sorry if this post sounds really negative but it's true.



Generation 8 Predictions so far.....(as of 9/2013)

Console that will sell most: Nintendo Wii U

Who will sell more consoles between Microsoft/SONY: SONY

 

Not a big deal, but watch people bitch to no end lol.



And this is why I play all of their games via questionable means.

I have a question: if someone hacks that content to play without paying for it, is it theft? And if so, how? Beause you're not supposed to access content on a disc you purchased until the company in questions says you can? That you only own what the company says you own, despite physically possessing it, and nothing more? Do you, perhaps, see where this can lead?

What most disturbs me about the rationalizaions (or outright contempt) of game industry people on things like on-disc DLC or why used games are Evil, is the remarkable lack of respect this industry shows for the most bedrock concept upon which society is based: private property. And yet they see no problem at all with advocating (in the name of their own property rights, nach) for things that undermine this bit by literal bit.

Meh, I would call it gray area and it's something I'm not so concerned with.  As it stands now, when you buy plop down $60 at Gamestop or wherever, you are buying a license and that license lets you use the content on that disc in a specific way.  That is why you can't do things like share the content, because the license you bought doesn't allow for that.

I'm really not trying to argue that the whole license system is right or fair, I actually don't care, I'm just stating that's the way it is.

As for on-disc DLC, again, why do people care so much?  It's extra content and was always meant to be extra content that you, the consumer, were always meant to pay more for.



Waiting for the inevitable Gold/Complete/Ultimate/Super/FuckYouEarlyAdopters version seems a better and better option.



Signature goes here!

wow now all my interest in this game went bye-bye.



People still get upset? I for one am numbed by this. Capcom has been doing this for a while, they arent gonna change, and unless someone is gonna write Capcom employee names in a Deathnote until they stop on Disc DLC we just gotta get used to it. Times change.
