Capcom releases overpriced costume packs in a 100KB file on the week the game releases…who would have thought?

Me (DaveedT13) : Yeah, just for that kind of moves Capcom will never have my money for SSFIV. some devs really don’t know how to take real advantage of DLC, this is because of this kind of moves that I was affraid of DLC on consoles before this gen begins… Their marketing team can’t understand it’ll hurts them more than the profits they’re making now with the ones that buys it, in the long run, less people will buy their product. Can’t wait to see how many copies they’ll sell of the next title in the series…something like Super Street Fighter IV Turbo Ultra-HD…with Hyper-DLC. duh. :/

Anyone who buys Record of Agarest War for $45 which is the same as the retail copy, is out of their freaking mind. All you gonna do is tell publishers that customers are willing to shell out the same amount of money for the same game that doesnt come with a disc, manual, case or nothing.
