Capcom details Street Fighter III DLC plan

Thursday, 1st September 2011 17:45 GMT By Andrew Groen

Capcom has gone into detail on their blog about their plans to roll out downloadable content for the XBLA version of Street Fighter III.


The first DLC pack will be the “Colours Pack” for $2.99 which is a simple pack that gives you seven new colors for each of the game’s fighters.

The second and third will be “match packs” which will feature loads of footage from competitive Street Fighter III tournaments. Specifically, the recent “Fight for the Future” event. Each of these will pack in over an hour of footage and include commentary as well. The price has yet to be announced.

The final pack will offer character music from the other versions of SFIII. Expect these to be rolled out in the coming weeks and months.

    Just once, I’d like to see Capcom include EWWWWWWWWW BOY – DIFFERENT COLOR OUTFITS (SO EXCITING!!!!) options INCLUDED in the games already inflated purchase price. It’s a huge asking, i know, but I think these just post release OUTFIT dlc packs from Capcom are RRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-DICK-U-LESS.

    Fuck off Capcom with your greedy overpriced outfit DLC that should be included in the game.

    Why do people still support capcom?
    Obviously i don’t want them to close, but capcom really need to be punished for decisions like this one.

    I would rather have paid cosmetic DLC and free content DLC, instead of getting all the costumes and making you pay for extra features.

    One is superficial, the other actually adds to the experience.

    @3, it’s the principle mate. A simple change in outfit COLOR should be included, certainly not extra. I’m tired of companies ripping off consumers with shaddy DLC such as this. Capcom is like the number one offender.

    ^agreed.

    Perfect example of how Capcom is in the wrong for doing this is the new FREE dlc coming out for Red Dead Redemption:
    http://www.destructoid.com/free-red-dead-redemption-dlc-hits-september-13-210373.phtml

    It’s got new characters, new maps, and more. For FREE.

    Yet here’s Capcom charging money for a change in color on someone’s outfit.

    I love how people seem to have completely forgotten that Capcom added new gameplay modes to Street Fighter IV for free.

    @8, Aye man, releasing free content for one title completely justifies over charging for content for another.

    Who’s taking bets on how much of this dlc will be content unlocks? I’m gonna say colours almost certainly, the videos, probably not, the music, could go either way.

    @9 These colours weren’t even in the original game.

    It’s not like they add anything new to the gameplay. They’re completely superficial, and you do not have to buy it.

    ^You’re unbelievably biased you do realize that right?

    The RDR example demonstrates new characters, new maps/locations, and it’s FREE. Portal 2′s upcoming DLC is more than just outfits (or even outfit COLORS for that matter), and it’s also FREE.

    Nobody HAS to buy any DLC, we get that Michael. The point is if other companies can give away characters, levels/maps, and actual added gameplay for free, then Capcom should be giving us a VERY simple color change in an outfit FREE. The fact that they’re NOT is an insult to me personally as a consumer. Not to some clearly, but definitely to me and others even in this small topics comments.

    Remember the uproar over RE5′s online mode DLC that was simply an unlock key in the kilobytes meaning the mode was already on disc?

    Capcom is the WORST with properly handling DLC.

    @11 The PC version of Portal 2 had over $80 dollars worth of cosmetic DLC for the two multiplayer robot characters. P-Body and Atlas… on launch day.

    Just sayin’.

    Look if developers put time and energy into DLC (especially like maps and new levels and such) they deserve to get paid. But if you’re talking about giving me the ability to change the color of my characters outfit, that shouldn’t require much additional work or energy, right?

    So who should really be charging for the DLC here and who shouldn’t?

    Perhaps the problem is that DLC is kind of like the wild west right now. There’s no rules or regulations (that i know of) so devs/pubs do whatever they want. Capcom are greedy bastards so they’re taking advantage. Others, chose not to. I think DLC content/charging/rules/regulations is what REALLY needs to be discussed here.

    @13 And yet you use Portal 2 as an example… a game that launched (on the PC at least) with an in-game store that allows you to buy cosmetic alterations for your robot companions.

    There’s no difference between that and this.

    Capcom have launched extra game content in the past for free.

    ^ Let’s be clear. I disagreed with Valve’s decision in that cosmetic DLC charging just as i disagree with this. However, that’s not what I’m comparing here. I’m comparing new levels, maps, etc, to an outfit color change. Why there now giving that away free, when they previously charged for outfits is beyond me. My points above however still stand.

    So I disagree with that and this. And thank you for reminding me of that cause i did forget, it is exactly the same. I guess that’s why i’m so puzzled when we see DLC like the new RDR with clearly added content (not cosmetic), and it’s free as opposed to charging for cosmetic. I’m baffled.

    @15 In the case of Xbox Live at least, developers are actually forced to pay to provide free DLC on Xbox Live. It’s pretty stupid, but that’s how it is. That’s why it’s so rare.

    Played the demo, and i won’t buy it till the Infinite songs are added to the game. That new kid rapping is annoying. C’mon Capcom don’t be an arse.
    PS: The full controls customization would be perfect too.

    Infinite songs are in the vault under the music section, you just have to unlock them.
