    Capcom's caught quite a bit of flak over its decision to include DLC content on production discs, later activated by purchase of an unlock code. While some disgruntled purchasers have taken the issue to the BBB (Better Business Bureau), Capcom has no plans to change its delivery method.

    "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," wrote the publisher in response to a BBB complaint over Street Fighter x Tekken.

    "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[...]

    This seems quite unashamedly greedy.

    Eh, in this case I agree with Capcom. It saves having to pay for another full copy of the game. And they can make the required balance changes with a downloadable update when the "Super" patch DLC is released.

    Of course all this depends on how much they are going to charge for the "unlock"

    Here is a statement I can get behind.

    CAPCOM forgets that DLC is meant to be "Downloadble Content" not "On-disc content". If you want to go that route, fine, but at least don't fucking lie to your customers. DLC has a bad enough rep as is.
