As a gamer myself im kinda on the fence over this. On one hand Im used to characters being on the disc and you cant unlock them w/o finishing some criteria in the game. Normally its beating the game in arcade mode or a round of fights that end in perfect ect.ect.ect. That being said, im also a bit upset that Capcom would make you pay for more content as their games dont have much in the way of content. Maybe a extra battle area. Maybe a few new characters. Otherwise Capcom has been releasing the same generic fighting games for almost 10yrs now. If this was a tactic that in and of itself was either illegal or immoral I might be upset by it. But its neither. Its just another way they can get a few extra bucks out of you. Consumers will need to adapt to the new way these companys get their money or just stop buying their products. The dollar you dont spend on a game you disagree with speaks louder then any internet rant. Boycott them if you feel so strongly. Its your money, you dont have to spend it on their product if you dont want too. I guarentee that Capcom sees a loss on their bottomline by doing this, means they wont do it anymore. If you give in and pay for the extra content all you do is empower them to do it on their next project. Keep your money!!!! Capcom like many other companies listen to their wallet.
