$70 for original game
$10 for Jill n Shuma (who were already there)
$10 for shadow battles ( when something like this really should have been included for single player in the first place + it sucks if you bought em cause you cant use em anymore)
So that brings the total to $130 plus tax of course for a complete video game in this age. Is that acceptable? Is that even the end of shelling out $? Doubtful.
This is kind of in response to Keits front page editorial on why its ok to put out unfinished products at full price. As someone who bought the game day 1, I dont feel its fair for capcom to to rape the wallets of their loyal fanbase. So people who dont give a shit and arent behind capcom enough to hype it up prerelease (which makes others who wouldnt want to check out the game),and buy the game day 1 get a huge discount while people like me who salivate for their product have to pay more than 3x more for the same game? And yes we are all gonna be playing the same game, its just idiots like me who pay triple the price for a measly what, 8-9 months of testing for them?
It should have been DLC optional, and dont tell me Im saving money this way. First off, it should only be $20 update not $40 if you already bought it. Capcom can price it at whatever they want so dont tell me its a rule$5 per character. AE is an example. Plus not everyone would have bought every character. Paying at all for stages when theres only 8 to begin with is lame. Unfinished. Paying at all for balance changes is lame.I know this is bound to happen, but thats expected. We shouldnt have to pay for it. Its the developers fault, not ours. Paying at all for spectator mode which should and could have been there originally? Unfinished. Paying for a more robust single player experiance which should have been first priority? What about paying for improved netcode? Paying for a story we were promised and never got? Endings? All things that should have been there day 1. All this only a few short months after release?
Yes im gonna buy it so dont give me the dont like it dont buy it excuse. And yes, ive gotten alot of bang for my buck out of this game but that doesnt mean its ok to rationalize for them why its a “deal”. Id be stupid not to buy it at $40. Id also be stupid to buy it for $140 which is unfortunately what the loyal fans are gonna have to do so the game they spent $70 on less than a year ago isnt rendered obsolete. People have a right to complain on an internet message board (at the very least) for something theyve spent so much time and money on. I want this to be open to discussion an Id appriciate this thread not to be closed. please dont come in here with insults and ignorance towards others of either persuasion. Just a single, open discussion on why this is or is not BS.
