It's free brah.


Yet if being announced before the game is even out, that means they could have just, oh I don't know, put the DLC in the game itself, instead of making you download it, or more then likely, unlock it off the disc.

Not even 10 years ago, something like this would not have been accepted, now people have been trained to just shut up & take it. congrats.


Actually PC Developers have been making add-ons to games for more than twenty years now. They just came in large "Expansion Packs" on discs rather than bite-sized chunks of "Download Content". It's only recently that consoles have been capable of this at all, so the mainstream non-PC gamer just became aware of the possibility of it.

Additionally, Capcom in particular spent much of the 90's releasing various versions of "Street Fighter II" with different balance tweaks and minor additions, including one version that included 4 new characters for a full-priced 50 bucks.

Anyone who says DLC practices are "new" has no idea what they're talking about, it's just changed the way things are done, not made developers suddenly start doing something they never did before.

Wrong 10 years ago this was accepted, PC games and Xbox games had on disc DLC, and like at that time most of it just wasn't finished but some of the data was on disc. Nobody is taking anything except the free DLC but I see people like you have been trained to just spout crap about something they don't know anything about.

@NewMoonShadow
LOL I should have just let you handle it. That guy isn't gonna come back anyway he's been made to look like a fool and I guess I wouldn't show my face either after this.

Can someone please confirm for me how much his DLC will cost? Is it free or will it be like 5 bucks a pop?

DLC is great, you're just a cheap little whiner with nothing better to complain about. I bet you're an extreme liberal too. Not that their is anything wrong with that but it would just fit so perfectly.

Besides, two decent characters, unlike Nariko, for free is totally awesome. It isn't Day One DLC, it isn't disc locked content, and it's not $15. So get over it, they gave people more characters they couldn't put in in time for release.

It will be free for the first two weeks of release, they haven't said how much it will be after that.
