Capcom thinks RE5 DLC complaints are 'BS'

Capcom has heard that some of you don't like the idea of paying extra cash for a versus mode in Resident Evil 5, and Capcom is angry. Labeling the recent complaints about Resident Evil 5's upcoming DLC "BS," publisher bigwig Christian Svensson refuted the fans, stopping just short of calling them hypocrites.

"This is the part where I get to say "BS"," he remarked, battling those who feel shortchanged. "RE5 is well worth every penny of $60. A huge game, with tons of replay value, loads of unlockables, new weapons, co-op, mercenaries mode, etc. If any game warrants its price point, it's RE5.

"Prior to the announcement of the Versus mode, no one complained they weren't getting their money's worth with the initial release because it packs TONS of value because it is an amazing game. So if people were already satisfied with what the package had, when we offer MORE, why is it people feel they've been somehow cheated? If you don't find value in our secondary offerings, the choice is simple, don't purchase it. If you do find it valueable (and we hope you do) please do buy it and enjoy it."

Svennson went on to defend the DLC by explaining that it had its own budget, regardless of whether or not the content was developed alongside the retail version of the game. This, he believes, justifies Capcom's decision to include a versus mode as DLC and not include it with the game. 

Personally, I worry about a slippery slope with Capcom. Mega Man 9 caused its own controversy with some rather questionable DLC that included extra difficulty levels, of all things. I respect Capcom a lot, and simply hope that lazy DLC isn't in its future. I like RE5 and don't regret spending the money I spent, but I hope that holding back modes you'd expect to see already shipped with a game doesn't became a trend for the publisher. That would most definitely be "BS."
