It's called marketing and drawing the game out, also not to mention having all the good weapons in easy DLC fights, off the start give extras to new players. This way, it draws it out a bit, and gives people a reason to come back and play and keeeeep playing this game.

They use assets that are already on disk by creating new code and releasing it. The games been out just over a month, so what we receive now is content already released in other regions. There won't be a time where we get content first unless its US exclusive.
They create the new code in Japan, release it there first, then localize it for other regions.
So yeah no reason then, great move capcom you just removed a good deal of content to people without online access and even if that is just one person its still a pretty horrible idea.
There are 37 Event quests VS 327 Village & Port quests. “good deal of content” LOL Come one, please. We are in 2013. Of course there are people who can't access the Internet with their console but does that even represent say 10% of buyers?
