This leads to Capcom making huge changes for this upcoming gen, including an even bigger focus on DLC than before.

“I regret to say that, up to now, we had few plans for the full-scale implementation of DLC.” From here on out, we need to focus on the long-term provision of content starting at the earliest stages of development. Furthermore, in terms of user response, if the additional related content we are providing continually to users online is deemed uninteresting from the start, there will be no ongoing business to pursue. This means that, more than ever before, the creation of underlying content is the key to success.” - COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto


I don't like this, Capcom was already a very DLC heavy company.

If its dlc like case west then I'm fine. Epilogues are ok in my book so long as the story feels complete.

To hopefully save a lot of terrible responses and poor understanding (I know its not possible on this board)

From the same article...

"To those who may not be so knowledgeable when it comes to the financials of these gaming companies, that is not a lot of money by any means. That’s actually a dangerously minuscule amount."

I think it's the entire DLC thing that got them into trouble in the first case.

I know it's why I stopped buying their games.

Instead of changing that, they're going to make it even worse by focusing even more on DLC.

ST do you think at this point that DLC is something that can be undone? I agree with you that its bad for gamers in general but I just don't see how you can stuff it back in the bottle at this point.

Personally, I don't really care when the the DLC was created or where it resides. Ultimately, the primary product has to be compelling to me before DLC is even considered.

Instead of including these extra items on disc or on the original download, it would probably be better to add them as a patch because of the negative perception from a large segment of gamers.

What is being said in the quote simply means that additional content has to be done in parallel. Contrary to what some may believe, it is impractical to commit to meaningful additions to games only after development has completed for the main game.
