CAPCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

Oh wow.  Someone actually filed a complaint against Capcom?  Someone actually got the Better Business Bureau involved?  I...wow.  I mean, I saw some comments saying that they'd do it, but I thought that was just grandstanding.  Jeez.  Some people take their games really seriously.

Here's a snippet from EventHubs on their response:

"SFxT has an enormous amount of content, fully developed and available for play and enjoyment immediately on-disc. Given the 38 characters available for full play, as well as multiple play modes, SFxT provides great value for all players from day one. 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. 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."

I disagree.  See, one way, the content can be hacked and people can play it until you hammer down on them for their -- for lack of a better word -- vigilantism.  The other way, the content stays in Capcom's hands so they can tweak it as needed, and people believe you're actually putting something new out there for everyone, instead of just making them wait for something that, many have argued, is already theirs.

Do you see the distinction?


Capcom, Capcom, Capcom.  What are we going to do with you?  Anyway, my additional thoughts are over here if you're interested.
