Over the past few years Capcom fans have been feeling screwed over by Capcom’s excessive use of on-disc DLC. The problem with this practice is that people were paying to unlock content that was already on the disc. Finally after years of constant complaints, Christian Svensson, Senior Vice President of Capcom has decided to take action. He said that the company has been listening to the constant complaints, and because of this they may change the way post content is released in the future.
On the official Capcom blog Svensson wrote, “We would like to assure you that we have been listening to your comments and as such have begun the process of re-evaluating how such additional game content is delivered in the future. As this process has only just commenced in the past month or so, there will be some titles, where development began some time ago and that are scheduled for release in the coming months, for which we are unable to make changes to the way some of their post-release content is delivered.”
Unfortunately, Dragon’s Dogma happens to be one of the titles that Svennson mentioned in his blog. I really hope that Svensson keeps his word and at least attempts to change the company’s already rigid business model. If he can accomplish this large feat, then Capcom’s future will look a little bit brighter.
