Capcom Says RE6 On-Disc DLC There B/C ‘Technical Reasons’
As if you weren’t expecting it, Resident Evil 6 apparently has on-disc DLC content. That is of course Capcom’s MO; they already weathered a storm of criticism back in July thanks to on-disc DLC on Street Fighter X Tekken. But seriously, at some point it’s as though the industry is daring us to stop buying their products no matter how much content is dummied out just to get more money from us.
The DLC has been discovered by gamers and videos, embedded below, have been posted proving it.
Here’s “No Hope Difficulty”:
Here are new costumes and taunts:
Obviously, this practice is galling. BioWare put it best when they acknowledged that fans won’t be happy with stuff like this until it becomes normal, which is why we need to do everything we can to prevent it. Alas, your complaints may fall on deaf ears. Capcom has responded to complaints, and it’s essentially ‘tough titty’:
“We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months and while virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc.”
So there you go, plebs. No need to worry, it’s for technical reasons only! Cough.
