With the on-disc DLC fiasco for Resident Evil 5 seemingly in the rear-view mirror, as well as that for Dragon’s Dogma, Capcom decided it was time to reassess their DLC strategy. I don’t know if someone at Capcom just didn’t get the memo, but it seems as if the company is going back on its word.
Recently, those who cracked the code for Resident Evil 6 discovered, you guessed it, hidden extras that require some sort of key to unlock them. Those extras include an extra difficulty mode, taunts, melee attacks, and costumes. The obvious assumption is that Capcom will sell these extras as DLC, even though the code clearly shows they are on the disc. Capcom has admitted that, for some content, “For technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc.” Nice wording, Capcom.
