Report: Capcom Defends On-Disc DLC


According to this report on CinemaBlend, Capcom has stated it believes there is effectively no distinction between downloadable content and disc-locked content.

Quote:
There have been numerous complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau regarding Capcom's latest antics involving the disc-locked content for Street Fighter X Tekken, several consumers received the following response from Capcom, which is verbatim of the Better Business Bureau's case # 57217509, where Capcom says...
At Capcom, we value our customers and make every effort to resolve customer complaints. We are sorry to hear that [censored] was so disappointed with the Street Fighter x Tekken game (''SFxT''), and would like to respond to his complaints.

SFxT has an enormous amount of content, fully developed and available for play and enjoyment immediately on-disc. Given the 38 characters available for full play, as well as multiple play modes, SFxT provides great value for all players from day one. While Capcom is sorry that some of its fans are not happy about the chosen method of delivery for the DLC, we believe that this method will provide more flexible and efficient gameplay throughout the game's lifecycle. There is effectively no distinction between the DLC being ''locked'' behind the disc and available for unlocking at a later date, or being available through a full download at a later date, other than delivery mechanism.
We hope that this addresses [censored]' concerns.
Thanks, GameSpot.

No, it did not address the community's concerns. Not in the slightest. Because our "concern" is that publishers like Capcom are withholding content that should have been delivered with the original game (and that was obviously ready prior to the game's release and even certification) simply as a means of bilking ever more dollars from the customer.

Many of us object to the notion of DLC being used not as a way to extend and enhance the value of the games we purchase, but rather as a piecemeal delivery mechanism which leads to us paying anywhere from a 10-25% (or more) higher price for the same game which we used to receive at retail purchase.

So no... screw you, Capcom, and especially screw whatever penurious management personnel have opted to take your company down this egregious, exploitative path.

If you were trying to make me feel better and understand why you did what you did... you failed and now I hate you more. Congrats Capcom, you are rising to the likes of Acti and Ubi... I would love to say I am surprised by this, but really I am not.

All kidding aside I am glad that some gamers are waking up to Capcom's bullshit. Even though you will most likely buy RE6 when it drops.

Complain, complain, complain....it will get you no where. The best way to show them how you feel is to vote with your wallet and raise awareness in the gaming community.

I will never buy anything from them nor EA. I may be one person but that is my stand. No $$ from me. If everyone practiced this then they would take notice.

I should have added...they would take notice and blame the lack of sales on piracy.

How can they defend it? IMO there is no defense for such a naked rape of their customers.

DLC means DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT, maybe it was lost in translation but it is not DLC if it's on the fucking disc. Don't fucking call it DLC you corporate smeagma eaters.

Stop buying games with day one DLC and stripped content and it will go away. Unfortunately, this won't happen. Anyone who bought Mass Effect 3 had a hand in proving how viable this model is. Congrats to you!

I'll wait for ME3 when ts dirt cheap, get the DLC on sale and pay half to full price of the game at retail now. Too many good games to play in the meantime that don't give you the finger.

RE6 will probably be terrible. I won't buy it even if it does score very high.

DLC now means "Disc Locked Content". Deal with it.
