Capcom Reconsiders Plan With On-Disc DLC

on May 14, 2012 8:26 PM

In a post on the Ask Capcom forums, Christian Svensson stated that Capcom is re-evaluating its future with regard to on-disc DLC. He notes that since this decision is fairly recent, games like Dragon’s Dogma that were in development beforehand would not be subject to any changes due to preexisting circumstance

The decision to include some additional (but not all planned additional) game content for the game on disc was made at the beginning of the game’s development cycle as at the time this was determined to be the most efficient way of ensuring certain content was made available.

The rest of the post can be found here. So what do you think? Regardless the fact that this doesn’t remotely effect how much content players get at launch, the backlash from the Street Fighter x Tekken incident must have resonated with the higher-ups at Capcom. Do you feel that Capcom should take the hit on server costs to placate fans? Or should they stick to their original plan and risk angering their consumers?
