Isn't the difference real DLC is downloaded as an addition to a game, and on disc means it is already there, you just pay money to USE it?

In my, albeit controversial, opinion they are right! There is no difference. It's all a business strategy that takes advantage of consumers.

Putting DLC on a scale and measuring just how much you're being taken advantage of doesn't change the fact: they are exploiting your personal investment in a game for increased profits.

well this may only be the begining anyways, since this won't stop people from buying DLC or the games from capcom.
Yeah they noticed our complaints but then try to justify what they've done.
I as a consumer see a difference, but as a company the difference to be seen is in the money, and if their making more money this way then why change things?
I love capcom but they kind of killed my interest in them along with megaman for U.S. :[

I can't wait for the inevitable day that this is a non-issue because disc based games will have become a thing of the past. Right or wrong, it's going to continue to happen. This is what happens in capitalist markets.

Well even if there were no disc based games, we'll still have the issue of dlc being made with the game and then being taken out no doubt. -.-

though even then there is a difference, dlc was and is meant to add to the experience, this is why I am not a fan of day one dlc. I agree that it is a business strategy, but day one dlc and this disk locked content don't even try to mask the greed.

And they'll keep doing this until we stop blindly buying and protest.

As much as I love CAPCOM, I hate them even more. Not only for screwing with us about Megaman(and then saying it was our fault) but also for screwing us by not releasing MHP3 in english, yet they have plans to release MH4 to the west.

Simply put *bleep* CAPCOM

^^ I completely forgot that capcom tried blaming us for a release on a megaman game, (saying something on the lines of lack of interest I'm pretty sure but not 100%) also before they said it was our fault, it looked like it was going to be release to the U.S and people were really excited over it. I think even the site for the game was getting a lot of good feedback until they just dropped it. :[

^ More recently, they've also absolved themselves of any responsibility over the decline of survival horror games.

the company capcom would make a good/bad blind politician.
capcom: what how can you say my actions lead to any of this, when I can't possibly see any of this was involved by us directly? (except the canceled games cough)
The people: dude the proof is in like every forum and site in the world that bashed you on these decisions, are you blind?
capcom: yes, yes I am.
the people: we're not getting another megaman game here are we?
capcom: do you plan to jump off a cliff with pure loyalty to capcom?
the people: well, no...
capcom: aha there's your answer.
I just didn't like them canceling that one megaman game for U.S. release, I'm still sour about the lack of english megaman games :[

Welcome to Capitalism. If you don't like how they do business, don't buy their products.

Capcom, making fools of themselves since forever.

They still get your money though. So I guess being a fool isn't all bad.

people say that I don't like a certain company but how many people do you think boycott said company's games for that reason? not as many people compared to people who don't like it.
In the end I'll buy dragons dogma and nothing will change :[

And it's that kind of thinking (the other kind being the ignorant who have no idea their being gypped) that makes capcom win.

I still regularly buy a few capcom games and am still gonna buy capcom games so long as their good. Difference is I buy used. Capcom don't see my money, I enjoy their games, win/win.

Other people will tell you to pirate, but that would imply that Capcom supports PC and that's just hilarious.
