1.0 out of 5 stars On-Disc DLC! ANTI-CONSUMER PRACTICES, May 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dragon's Dogma - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I was just about to open my copy of Dragon's Dogma, which I had pre-ordered some weeks back, when I saw news that Capcom admits that this game has on-disc DLC. I knew I was taking a gamble when pre-ordering this game, since this IS Capcom we're talking about. But since this was an RPG and not a fighting game I thought it was worth the risk. Well, guess I was wrong.

Sorry, Capcom. I, as a responsible consumer, refuse to support such unethical business practices. I shall be returning my copy to Amazon ASAP.

Yeah you're right. 300 + hours of gameplay just isn't worth $60. This doesn't belong in the review section.

This post has nothing to do with the mechanics or gameplay of Dragons Dogma and there for does not help anyone. Nor is this information 100% accurate. Senior VP Christian Svensson has anounced Capcom is in the process of revising its On-Disk DLC policies...Sorry E. Lacerna; however, I will believe the VP of Capcom over you.

I for one will be enjoying the 100's of hours of great gameplay that was released at launch and hope for the best with Capcom. It seems Capcom is finally taking note to customer backlash and will be changing their future releases, I just hope Dragon's Dogma can see some of those changes.

It'll help you learn how to write a proper review. I have reported this as abuse/spam.

The Senior VP of Capcom, who doesn't even understand why people are upset about the on-disc DLC? They think it's an issue of packaging. Their "solution" is to have the same DLC available online, on the day of release (thus, finished before the game was even shipped out -- implying, it should have been part of the game already) via download instead of putting it on the disk. They do not understand what is inherently wrong with "DLC" finished before the game. Capcom is a pioneer is abusive DLC practices. This isn't a surprise. They approach DLC as part of the total sales figure for a product, as opposed to something that helps enhance an already finished product. Not to mention the constant advertisement that pops up on the bottom of the screen every hour or so regarding DLC.

With that said, this review should really not be on page as it's an ethical stance and not an objective view of the product. It doesn't help anyone, and it's not a good review.. because it isn't one. Sorry that you were not aware of the DLC issue beforehand, and hopefully you get a decent refund; however, it'd be best not to post ridiculous reviews.

Reported for abuse. These kinds of reviews have very little value.

Wow, so many Capcom fanboys on here butthurt because of the truth. Sorry, kiddos. I know a lot of you are too young to remember when the days when the gaming industry actually did not go out of their way to cheat their customers, so you think this on-disc DLC nonsense is nothing to be concerned about. But us older gamers know when a company is screwing us over, so the responsible consumers among us will refuse to accept such scams.

And go ahead and report me, fanboys. Keep bending over and taking it from the multi million dollar corporations that don't care a smidge about you. Hopefully one day in the future you'll grow up and realize that there's more to life than your videogame fix. It's the principle of the matter, kids, and if you can't understand this then you have no right to call yourselves adults.

I prefer on disc DLC because it saves my hard drive space. I understand arguement of it should be included but business is about making money. The good news is the consumer makes the choice if you enjoy the game support it with buying the DLC if not then its a easy choice I find it funny when people cry about on disc DLC when no one is forcing them to buy it an it saves there memory.
