Believe it or not, Mass Effect 3 isn’t the only game getting slammed by “fans” for having on-disc DLC (aside from the ending outcry). Capcom is under fire for their latest release, Street Fighter X TEKKEN, for having DLC already stored on the disc (no surprise Capcom). Thanks to Twitter, people can reach out to those involved in the industry to see what their stance is on this philosophy.
Tweeters have reached out to Hideki Kamiya, former director of Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe and Bayonetta. Here’s what he had to say on his Twitter about the whole on-disc DLC scenario:
“Some fans asked me what I think about DLC. To be 100% clear. Here is what I think: If it costs money to make the content above what was planned for the game, you should pay for it. Even if it is on-disc. If you cut budgeted features from a game and then try to sell them as DLC just to make more money, that is wrong.
I don’t follow game news all that closely. I have no interest in what is going on with Street Figher X Tekken. I am busy making my own games. So don’t waste my time twisting my words to fit whatever side of a controversy you want. I don’t care. OK?
My twitter isn’t what you use to find your news on a slow day. It is to communicate with fans don’t ruin it. It fucking pisses me off.”
Well, it’s evident Mr. Kamiya wanted to clarify his beliefs so that he doesn’t get dragged further into a dilemma that clearly doesn’t even involve him. Do you agree with him? Sound off your opinions below!
