Publisher confirms new zombie shooter does include "incomplete" free DLC that requires a download to access; all upcoming paid DLC not already on disc.
Capcom recently caught fire from fans who discovered on-disc Resident Evil 6 downloadable content. Now, the publisher has issued a statement admitting there is content already on game discs, but clarifying that it is free and "incomplete."
A Capcom representative explained on the company's blog that this free content--the No Hope difficulty mode and a new co-op partner--is "incomplete" because it will not work without an actual download. The two free DLC items will arrive through a title update "soon."
Concerning the previously announced Resident Evil 6 paid downloadable content, Capcom said these add-ons are not already on discs. New game modes Survivors, Predator, and Siege will be made available first on Xbox 360 before spreading to PlayStation 3.
Hey Guys open your minds
? BEFORE when a game released THIS IS IT, no extra souce on top.
? NOW developers got the option to ADD what they didn't do for a reason or another
? DLC means EXRTA Contents you didn't pay for
? Either the DLC on-Disc or in STORE you'll pay at the end, so save your (Mbps)
? IF & i repeat (IF) you DON'T want IT then DON't download IT, u DIDN't pay for IT
?? Last thing, even if gamers stop buying Stupid COD "MAPS" with a stupid SMILE ? on their faces ? and the MAPS vanished from the Top Top Twenty DLC that have been PURCHASED , you DON'T have the right to ask Capcom not to sell NEW "Customes/Charecters/Modes"
Dear Capcom: Ur constant camera angle changes in re6 are total fail. The overwhelming majority of game deaths are due to retarded camera angles resulting in not being able to see where I'm going. Dont you have vG testers for this sorta thing? Pls fire them if u do.
Have you played it? If not, shut up. It was actually good, BUT I only played the demo. I was like you once, then I decided to look for myself. This is a multi-billion dollar company developing this here. It's not like the old days when Nintendo would just pump dookey out on us and we loved it. Have you any idea what it takes to develop a game or even create 3D models? Don't be a picky little emo baby. Truth is, you probably loved the old stuff on OLD consoles. Sure you'd never play it now. Nowadays, you'd say it sucked. If a game like this was released back then, even these stupid editors would clearly give it a 9.5 or a ten. The problem is that we are playing TOO much and creating higher standards because every major producer is doing the same thing. Companies are also copying each other and we are getting the same, repetitive crap over and over. RE6 should have gotten a 7.5 on gamespot. It's certainly better than COD or any crap it puts out. It's not a bad game, seriously.
Hey Capcom, instead of wasting your time making incomplete DLC, why don't you localize Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2? Assholes.
It's annoying when people complain about "on-disc" DLC, when obviously a large download is required and the DLC itself is released way after the game's publish date. Some people are too keen to stir up controversy I think.
ok if they have time to put the content on disk then they can put it as part of the package of the game but this issue i think some people are far to over the top about. even if a game has disk locked dlc then that is not a reason to boycotte a dev. however online pass on the other had that is greed. if capcom start doing that online pass nonsense thats when they will piss me off
It's going to take more than one game without on-disc DLC before I forgive you Capcom. And well... I just wasn't impressed with the RE6 demo, so I don't even know if RE6 counts. Keep trying though Capcom.
so....if its a free mode, and its already partially on the disc....why does it need to be DLC?
doesn't really make sense to be honest, but its step in the right direction for Capcom.
@Darkman2007 It's probably unfinished content they decided to push back and release the game earlier, but I get your point, most people here don't see it that way though.
@Darkman2007 there probably are maps/skins e.t.c. already on the disc but a dlc is required to get everything else. it simply wont run without being completed.
"Every DLC for a game is already on disc. If it werent. Then developers had a hard time coding those maps, modes and guns into the game."
That makes no sense. They develop the games on the development kits and PCs then make them ready for home use. There is no need to pre-load the stuff on the disc to preserve it like you're suggesting. It's not difficult at all for them to code it considering they have the source code at their disposal.
@Cal12 Its just a cover up to hide the fact that they put on disc DLC AGAIN! Even after they said they wouldn't after Dragons Dogma.
Y do even have to have an option for paying for different modes of gameplay?? Its a different mode. Really??? So i gotta pay for different mode. Does any1 else c this as a problem?? Whats next they gonna charge us for a title screen?? Or maybe even chapter 2 of a main story. Dont u ppl c that they're slowly breaking the game down into the bare minimum & charging us for the whole complete game??? This era in gaming disgusts me. Watch somewhere down the line they're gonna say u have to pay 5 bucks to c the ending of a game.
I give Capcom the benefit of the doubt. They state that there is no on disc DLC. I shall take them at their word.
Unless someone cracks the disc and proves Capcom wrong. DLC is what ever increasing HDD storage was intended for? If someone "downloads" Resident Evil 6 extra content. Should be easy to verify it is on the HDD?
Every DLC for a game is already on disc. If it werent. Then developers had a hard time coding those maps, modes and guns into the game.
@lilnazar real dlc is sometimes several gb in size... on disc stuff is far far smaller. if youre actually downloading anything of significance then its silly to think that thats only to unlock on disc content. unless you think that dlcs like the ones found in DA origins or fallout 3 or la noire are gigabytes in size because they needed that size to unlock already on disc content?
I`m not buying this at all........good thing a friend is a cash cow.
NOT ME! Fo` shame capcom fo` shame! free dlc but locked? why?? to cash in on it??? no???? its free????? ...
...why was it locked in the 1st place..??????
...feels like deja vu
The display of BIAS here is disgusting,
Capcom this time has actually reacted to the criticism and yet they are bashed...
American nationalism as its best...
what the ? so this really really hard then? hope its more monster less ammo less life and i don't know how did you survive after that
This whole topic is SF X Tekken all over again (Major reason why I didn't buy this without waiting for reviews etc...). Capcom even said they were looking into this for future releases and that was all lies. Why lock content that's going to be free? I hope this isn't some lame attempt to stop second hand sales.
It's not that hard to believe that it was intended to be free all along. A new difficulty mode and a co-op partner...... that just sounds absolutely TERRIBLE if it was made to be DLC. How many people would even BUY that?
@immanuel_aj valkyria chronicles had a "difficulty DLC" where you paid to unlock extra hard :P
Why would they put free content on a disk, but them make us wait to download it? My guess is they were planning on charging money for this, but due to the negative reaction to RE6 they decided to try and save face by making it free.
@PlasmaBeam44 True, but it could also be that they chose this approach to discourage players to trade in the game, thus prevent second hand sales.
@PlasmaBeam44 well it like a new ham and cheese with pickles if you don't try it for free you won't sell anything... consumers need to know it edible
@PlasmaBeam44 Or maybe it was only like 75 percent complete when the game was ready for publishing. I guess we'll know more when we can find out how big the "download" is to make it work.
@PlasmaBeam44 you might be on to something :D
