My point is that it's not a fair comparison. And if one needs to be made, DMC3:SE is far more consumer friendly and ethical simply on the fact that it was POST-RELEASE developed product.

I'm 100% sure NT said we wouldn't be able to play as Vergil in the game... he wouldn't even be dlc.


That said... I'm now buying this game

Every game.

Was there even a game (besides smaller indie stuff) in 2012 that didn't have DLC planned from the start?
Pretty much the only difference is some don't announce it until later, but it's always planned way before.

It always boggles my mind when people argue AGAINST having as much info as early as possible

They said you wouldn't be able to play him on the Day 1 release disc. They were very specific about it as to avoid confusion.

It was actually Capcom's Alex Jones, and he said that he wouldn't be playable in the retail product, he actually stated that DLC was a possibility, but he wasn't playable in the main game.

The Pigsy DLC was excellent, lasting a good 6 hours and playing quite differently too the main game. I really think NT can pull this one off well.

Edit: Whoops 4 hours, still excellent for a game that is around 10 hours long and having different gameplay mechanics.

Blasphemous. I can understand some people preferring DmC's Dante because of personal taste differences. DmC Vergil is nothing compared to DMC3 Vergil. Notice how they didn't have him speak in the trailer.

It's a bad practice, no matter how you try and justify it. Maybe the younger generation that played/purchased all of these Capcom re-releases didn't know any better because they were, you know, young and ignorant. I wasn't even thinking about business practices, consumer exploitation, etc. when Capcom did this back with Street Fighter II. Even more so, my parents probably bought me Super Street Fighter II Turbo or whatever for Christmas. I had no control over my support of these horrible practics. But now that I'm older and more mature I can choose not to support it because it's bullshit. Enough is enough, you know what I mean?

The difference is that the DMC 3 team put everything that they had done into the original version, the SE content was not sitting there fully developped but locked behind a pay wall. The game ended up being a hit but had some issues (difficulty was singled out in reviews) so they had the team work on a director's cut kind of version with extra content. This DLC is completed or in VERY advanced stages of development, it's all planned out from the start, paraded in front of you but blocked behind a pay or preorder wall.

It's disgusting. And beyond all those issues did anyone even look at the trailer? Looks like complete and utter shit, I was actualy playing DMC 3 this morning and this is a travesty. Anyone trying to convince themselves that this looks great should go play 3 or even 4 again.

What a fucking joke!

I like DmC Vergil but I agree with you, their Vergil made me realise that they Capcom was right in not letting them do a "Dante fanart" (as NT defined themselves) and instead pursue their own vision of the character. DmC Dante is much more fresh and unique, like him or not, Vergil is just a not-as-good version, even though I still like him.

Of course I'm only talking about visuals, I still have to play the game to judge them as characters.

I'm being realistic, they had no way to release content back then other than a physical release. You want to put everything in the package because you don't know if you'll get another chance at ever including new content. Game was successful and got a greatest hits version, they made it a director's cut version with extra content that was made AFTER the initial versions success.

This is content being held back that's already completed. They are showing it to you already but you can't have it for your 60$. That's pretty fucking bad.

And it does look like ass, I thought Dante's animations were janky looking but Vergil's.... It's a joke. Sorry.

If you care that much, pre-order from gamestop. I am a big advocate for treating the consumer fair, and not being shitty about DLC. But I have no doubt that this was not taken out of the game just to be sold. Is it kind of tasteless to announce it this early? Yes, I am always against that. However, I don't feel like this is anything but an actual "Add-On".

I agree. But thats the way it works right now, and the publishers play by the retailer's ruleset in a lot of cases.

It won't be. I'm positive the DLC is finished or near completion, but they won't add it to the disc after the backlash they've received from SFxT. They'll pretend it's still being worked on and release it a safe distance from the launch. There will be some assets on there for sure, though.

True, but I guess I was just keeping the discussion to Capcom since it's the topic.

See, I think it could still happen. I just think we need someone with enough power/money to make the change. I get it though, these companies have more than digested those DLC profits/numbers and there's likely no going back, but weirder things have happened, right? I know the following scenario would be least likely to happen, but entertain the idea for me:

What if someone like Activision decided to stop pushing DLC for their CoD games and instead emphasized in-game/at purchase content and consumer value? What if Activision made a BIG PUBLIC STINK in favor of a non-DLC future? In 2013, all of their games would be DLC free and instead be packed to the brim with content (maps) at launch. If Activision stood by this decision and people bought their games and internalized this "DLC Bad, Valued Packaged Good" mindset then the practice would certainly trickle down to other companies. I believe everyone (the industry, gamers, publishers, developers) would benefit from this change, but until then (or if it ever happens), things are only going to get worse.

Skins are DLC, but are also unlockable, DLC will be just early access, that was already confirmed.

Weapon skins in the other hand are DLC only and will probably be on disc, since it's a pre-order bonus.

Meh, I'm not massively interested in the game though it is on my list of games to get a few months after release when it is cheaper (I enjoy the series but am pretty terrible at them, lol), but I find myself even less caring with this sort of thing.

These little stories that to me would be seemingly great for the lore and to expand the product, especially for something like DmC where fans opinions are already mixed on it being a reboot yet these companies continue to try and, what is the saying, nickle and dime us? at every opportunity.

Not enough companies do this, kind of like RDR's Undead Nightmare disc, though that was more expensive, or the Dead Rising stuff. I can totally get onboard with small side stories that don't require the main game and give you a taste of the actual game, more so if it includes some sort of unlockable.
Though Festival of Blood is probably the best I've personally seen, great little mini story.
