Vergil To Be Playable In DmC Devil May Cry As DLC; Free If You Pre-Order

By Ishaan . November 12, 2012 . 8:26am

 

Vergil will be playable in DmC Devil May Cry as downloadable content, Capcom announced this morning.

 

Shortly after its release, Capcom will release a downloadable “Vergil’s Downfall” story for DmC Devil May Cry, which will cost 720 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live and $8.99 on PlayStation Network. Vergil will have his own storyline, gameplay, weapons, combos, enemies and locations.

 

However, if you pre-order DmC Devil May Cry from GameStop or EB Canada, you’ll get a download code for the Vergil’s Downfall DLC for free.

 

DmC Devil May Cry will be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 15th, 2013. A PC release will follow shortly after.

 

Note: Capcom point out in their press release that the Vergil DLC is not on the game disc.

    Go ahead, anti-DmC army. This one is deserved.

    Edit: I did want to buy this game, probably even pre-order just to show my support for what is basically a new IP now. But I can’t support this nonsense. There are plenty of other games releasing around that time that need my support anyways so I’ll be busy. Maybe I’ll pick it up used down the line when the price drops or if a complete, budgeted version is released.

    That said, I would have more incentive to buy the game if this was included.

    • Fr33Kingdom

      …But it’s just normal dlc? It’s not day one, and it’s not on the disc, it’s just normal dlc…..Are we against downloadable content all together now? Because i wasn’t aware of that. I don’t see the problem.

      • MrRobbyM

        When you announce DLC waaaay in advance of release instead of including it in the game, especially for this game, is wrong. It’s planned DLC. Which is not always all bad but in this case, it is.

        If it was costumes or anything of that nature, I wouldn’t really mind much. But this is Capcom trying to sucker every dollar of the fans. They can get away with it because it has become the norm but that doesn’t make it right.

    • Fr33Kingdom

      But you haven’t explained why it’s wrong. On top of that it doesnt even look finished and lacks a release date. Why would costumes be okay? because you wouldn’t want them? Is dlc a problem when it’s something gamers would want? 

      • MrRobbyM

        Because it’s just a bunch of money grabbing from Capcom/NT. Besides, with so many negative things being said about the game already, you’d think they’d want to add more incentive to buying the game instead of indirectly forcing them to pre-ordering the game.

        They just kicked everyone in the gut that want to wait for reviews or give it time to see overall reception that aren’t sure of the game yet and will then have to pay an extra 8.99 on top of an already $60 game if they want the DLC.

        This wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t planned months ahead. Heck, was probably planned much longer than that. It’s the kind of content that would normally be in a game anyways from the looks of it.

        As for costumes, it’s usually seen as something extra, unimportant to story or anything, really. It’s still nice to have a few, free options already in game, but it’s still considered something extra. I don’t like how the Tales series handles it, but that’s a different discussion.

        • Herok♞

          Well if you want to wait for reviews and people’s reactions, and the like the game will probably be cheaper even if its by $10 when you pick it up, which you could spend the saved money on the dlc if you still want the game. If someone really wanted to they could just buy the copy now, use the dlc code that is on the recent and just return the game if they want to wait it out for a while or they see the price drop some where else.

          • MrRobbyM

            The thing, they shouldn’t have to do that.

          • Herok♞

            It may be a pain but there are options for everyone is all I am saying which is why I feel a story preorder bonus is fine as long as it isn’t already made..

          • MrRobbyM

            From the looks of it, it looks like it’s pretty much done and has been planned out for a while.

          • Herok♞

            I wouldn’t judge completion of something based on gameplay alone, it still looks like it needs voice acting and other stuff before it can be sold.

          • MrRobbyM

            @Cyberninja776:disqus 

            That doesn’t change the fact that it’s been planned for a while now.

        • Fr33Kingdom

          The idea of “money grabbing” doesn’t make any sense. Wouldn’t costumes still be the definition of money grabbing? Wouldn’t attempting to make any money beyond the costs of developing it be money grabbing? If the dlc isn’t worth the money, fine don’t support it. If the game feels lacking without the extra content? Fine don’t support it, but we can’t be sure of any of that yet. 

          The ill will towards the game is not rightful or rational, neither capcom nor ninja theory(especially ninja theory) have to bend to appease people who decided they would hate the game simply for existing. Why does it matter if it’s planned months ahead or not? Development requires planning. You dont just sit around while other people are working and wait till it’s time to think again. Dlc keeps people working who otherwise might have no real work to do, i thought we  collectively went over this already? Why does it matter if it was planned years in advance? Should they pretend like they are surprised their game gets released at all and begin work AFTER launch? I don’t really get the issue here. Why does it matter when it’s planned or when it’s announced or released? You realize content gets cut from games all the time? Ideas get thrown away or picked up again. Developers have always been actively deciding what makes it to release and what doesn’t. Who cares when they planned what isn’t going to be in the initial release? I mean it seems to me that these chapters would be better fit as a secret unlockable, rather than announced dlc. It just would make a better experience, but i can’t act as if it’s somehow morally reprehensible to release extra content for purchase….

          • MrRobbyM

            Yes. About the whole money grabbing thing. Costumes are the same thing, just a much lower level since, as I said, aren’t important and are considered extra.

            And about everything else. Do game companies, especially Capcom, not have any dignity left? I get that companies are all about profiting and careful planning. I’ve said that myself on this site various times. But just because stuff like this becomes the norm, doesn’t mean we should all accept it. I just want my good, hard earned money to go to something, for the most part, honest and deserving. 

            I really did want to support this game, I really did. I honestly believe Capcom makes amazing games but their practices with DLC, especially lately has left a bad taste in my mouth. $60 dollars isn’t exactly cheap, you know.

    • Fr33Kingdom

      But you haven’t explained why it’s wrong. On top of that it doesnt even look finished and lacks a release date. Why would costumes be okay? because you wouldn’t want them? Is dlc a problem when it’s something gamers would want? 

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    The first thought that came to my head upon seeing the title “Vergil’s Downfall” was: “…Spoilers?”

    But who knows. There might be twists or something.

    • Godmars

       You mean you couldn’t see Vergil turning on Dante at some point? Just using him like he’s using his Anonymous click? 

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        I wouldn’t know; I don’t watch a lot of promo videos on this game. That being said… if I’m to try to be a bit genre savvy and consider the widespread “evil businessman” stereotype – plus the pretty heavy-handed modern corporate satire(?) – yes, it’s quite a strong possibility. I just didn’t want to go wild and jump ahead with my speculations.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Wouldnt it be awesome if it would be unlockable in-game?
    You think game is over and then suddenly “BOOM”Vergil chapter?
    But no,its DLC chapter.With a white haired Vergil who looks like he lost against Dante in a fight.
     

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      “Wouldnt it be awesome if it would be unlockable in-game?”

      If I remember correctly, that was how you unlock Vergil in Dante’s Awakening: Special Edition. Many of his stages are re-uses of the ones Dante went through, but with a number of changes, and in a slightly different order. Plus, he had some cutscenes of his own.

      • XiaomuArisu

         Yep that or a DMC3 save to unlock Vergil.
        Best example is Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories.After you beat the story”SURPRISE”bonus story with a different hero.That is how they should do it,or maybe how they(ninja theory)planned it,before they went the DLC route.I mean one trailer gave us a hint that Vergil is playable.

  • kupomogli

    Lost a sale. As much as I hate the new emo Dante, I was still going to get the game before this prerelease DLC announcement. Not going to get it now unless there’s a complete version. I have a pretty large backlog, so I have no problem waiting.

    If it was a few costumes here and there I wouldn’t have minded. But actual content, playable characters, etc, no thank you. Especially when this is all prerelease.

  • Otoya

    Good Good. I dont take this as original DMC anymore. I take it as a new game

    • eilegz

       only if they could put a different name, the main guy not named dante… it would be a good new franchise….

      so bad that what capcom and NT doing its to divide its fanbase…. look at castlevania and metroid

  • Otoya

    Dang, nice one. Confirm getting it no matter what!!!!

  • $30632660

    You know, before I start talking the negativity that WILL be heard

    best thing about this trailer was that they kept the Swords of Revealing Light that I loved to use when I played as Vergil in DMC 3 Special Edition.

    and the Positivity ends there.

    I am not surprised that Ninja Theory and Capcom, oh yes Capcom is to blame too because they definitely had something to do with this, would pull something like this.

    In fact, as much as I don’t like Ninja Theory, I bet it was Capcom that wanted to do this, or at least brought the idea up of selling Vergil as DLC.

    This is one of the most douchebag things to do ever in gaming history.To force people to preorder the game, which is basically buying it Day 1, to get the DLC “free” so they won’t be able to wait and see first how the game turns out.

    It’s not as bad as Squarenix selling 4 hours of content for 15 bucks like Deus Ex Human Revolution: Missing Link, which I was very fortunate to get on sale along with the rest of the DLC and the main game for under 13 bucks on Steam, but it’s still wrong.

    I don’t want people to loser their jobs so don’t come at me with that bullshit, but I hope this game bombs and drops like a bad habit.

    EDIT: And I forgot to add, the DLC name is implying a spoiler, even though most people would think that Vergil will attempt to betray Dante, and they should change the name to

    Being the Best Douchebag DLC.

       its not.

      • Peeka Chu

        Are you sure about that? Nothing in this article says anything to that effect. Oh and those unlock codes were “downloadble” too, for what its worth. And how odd is that a sizeable piece of DLC is READY “shortly after” release day? So did they cut it from the disc just to resell it or what? 

        I’ll probably play this, but I’ll wait on reviews and until all the DLC has been released and it hits the $20 mark or a GoTY edition.

      @yahoo-GFQYYWFUR2SBFLKIITVECS5NAI:disqus @google-f3968aea901f635f48876fb0bcb5a9ac:disqus The DLC is not on the disc. From Capcom USA’s PR e-mail:

      “*Please note that this DLC is not on the retail disc and is only available via download post launch”

      I’ve added the information to our report.

    • gold163

      Even if it isn’t on the disc, the DLC was still apparently in development parallel with the game itself, or at least production had started on the DLC early enough such that it would be finished by “shortly after the game’s release.” The reason why they are telling you this NOW is specifically to secure pre-orders, so their ulterior motive is pretty clear. Either way, whether the content is partially locked on-disc or not, the development of the DLC is happening soon enough such that the end result is practically similar — Capcom and Ninja Theory get to convince people to pre-order the game, thereby bolstering day one and securing sales beforehand with “non-essential” content, or they get to make even more money later off of the poor saps who didn’t buy the game at its release for whatever reason.

      Overall, it just seems really unfair to me. Capcom is favoring certain customers over others and charging those others a premium. It’s a shady practice that I don’t approve of and I’m wondering how anybody else could think it’s alright.

  • gold163

    wasn’t capcom supposedly “reevaluating” their DLC business model?

    Also, DmC? More like DLC! DOHOHOHOHO

  • https://twitter.com/RaiohV Raioh

    Fuu, $8.99 isn’t exactly cheap, I assume it’ll be full of awesome content, cause that would be the only explanation I’d accept.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    No 

  • Domii

    Now I’m even more excited for this even though the whole preorder DLC thing rubs me the wrong way. I’m really surprise how great Virgil’s move set looks.

    Also, I’m I the only one who noticed that blue demon that was fighting along side Virgil? Can this be his DT?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Jennings/100000158197173 Bobby Demetris Jennings

    Get used to it guys, everything is freaking DLC this generation. I’ll preorder it, I just wont get it day one. I still keep my DLC regardless.

    • gold163

      how do you preorder a game and not get it day one? Isn’t the whole concept behind preordering a game to get it the day it comes out?

      So are you going to preorder it, and then just leave it at the store or something?

      • Luna Kazemaru

        Gamestop doesn’t force you to pay in full on day of release I had Ghost Recon: FS on hold for like 2 weeks before I even picked up the game and still got the dlc.

        • gold163

          What would it matter if you didn’t pay in full on day of release? Your copy’s already paid for, isn’t it? At that point you’re already part of the sales numbers; you just haven’t completed the sale yet. All the same, I’d imagine you’re hurting Gamestop more than you’re hurting Capcom, since Gamestop has already paid for the shipment based on the preorder numbers, haven’t they?

          If you’re not going to pay in full on day one to make some sort of statement against the DLC practices that statement is completely nullified by the fact that Capcom has already made a sale off of you, and that you have to pay in full eventually or they’ll just sell your copy to someone else.

          If you’re not going to pay in full on day one just to put off paying for a game for a couple of days, well I guess that’s your prerogative. If I was trying to save money I’d just not buy the game at all.

          • Luna Kazemaru

            You completely missed the point go figure.

            The point I am making gamestop doesn’t force you to pay for the game completely on day of release put it this way I put down 10 bucks on this game and the game is out sure they going to call me and alert me but its not going to go tell me you have to pay now. In the case of Ghost Recon I didn’t pay it off and get the game to about 2 weeks later(due to reasons) If I changed my mind about the game I could have just got my money back and yes they could have sold it to someone else.

            Also don’t come at me with this.

            ‘If you’re not going to pay in full on day one just to put off paying for a game for a couple of days, well I guess that’s your prerogative. If I was trying to save money I’d just not buy the game at all.’ 

            Paying the game in full day one with a pre-order is not the point of it is securing your copy of a game even if you don’t have the money on hand at the time.

          • gold163

            We know how pre-orders work. No point was missed.

            So basically, the OP is going to pre-order the game exactly the way people have been pre-ordering games for ages, and then make a statement on a website proudly proclaiming so?
            I mean, if you’re securing your copy, good for you? Excuse me if I’m a little puzzled here at what the point is.

            As for the OP’s statement, “Get used to it”, no, I will not. It is exactly this kind of behavior that enables publishers like Capcom to get away with these sorts of nickel-and-diming business models. If there is a soapbox, I’ll stand on it.

          • Luna Kazemaru

            @gold163:disqus ” how do you preorder a game and not get it day one? Isn’t the whole

            You seem to didn’t know :/

            You asked how and I explained to you that they don’t force you to pay day one. My reply wasn’t intended to be a way to back him.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/JWYP4LHHTJYJM5IYDEL7AJJPQE Maxwell

             Nobody said they were making a statement. The guy clearly wants the game, and wants to play as Virgil, and so will preorder the game to avoid having to pay the extra for the DLC. He won’t necessarily pick it up on day one because he didn’t plan on doing so to begin with, but would rather just preorder it to get the DLC free and then pick it up at his leisure, as he may not have the funds to purchase it day one or the time to play it right then and there. It makes perfect sense. It’s just a matter of convenience.

          • gold163

            So essentially, Capcom: Mission Accomplished?

            If he is not making a statement, then I will — no, NOT everything is DLC this generation nor does it have to be. If you ever wondered why DLC could be used as leverage to gain sales you have your answer right here. The smug, “I still keep my DLC regardless” shows that consumers simply don’t care rather than just not knowing about the impact that they have on the industry’s practices.

            If he’s going to paint a target on himself then he’s setting up for scorn.

  • MagiusNecros

    I remember when Vergil was an unlockable character.  

    • gold163

      he still is! You just have to pay more money or be first in line. :trollface:

      • MagiusNecros

         The DLC probably performs better then the actual game.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       You must have been on another world then I clearly remember having to buy DMC3 all over again just to play as him.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Then you conveniently forgot the original version of DMC3.

  • delon33

    Remember DMC3 Special Edition guys? This pre-order thing is bad but having to buy an entire game again is worse.

    • gold163

      It was the same with endless fighting game revisions (which are still happening), etc. Providing post-production content through DLC would theoretically be unequivocally better than simply re-releasing entire games with additional content from both the consumer and the publisher’s point of view, but considering that the chances are high that Capcom is going to release a bunch of DLC in a nice little Goty or “DmC Gold” package or something afterwards and squeeze as much out of long-term sales as they possibly can with package gimmicks, this is more like Capcom releasing Vergil’s story as DLC for the original DMC3, and then re-releasing everything as DMC3 Special Edition a year or two laters as a “new, complete” package.

      So there is the potential for Capcom to get away with doing both “bad” and “worse” here. It all depends on how many people let them get away with it.

      • delon33

        I can see them doing that in the future but as it stands right now, DMC3:SE is worse than this pre-order thing. 

        • gold163

          the future does not matter until it is the present.

          • delon33

            We’re in agreement then.

      Capcom’s press release says “shortly after launch,” so that’s what we’re going by, unless they send out a correction. In most cases, official PR > community post.

  • Curan_Altea

    You know…. I don’t hate the new look for Virgil. And gameplay wise he looks really fun to play. I’m rather optimistic on this one. I’m waiting for PC release, so I’m curious to see how it’s handled on that front. 

  • AoNoise

    I normally don’t have THAT much hatred towards DLC. I think when done right it is a nifty addition to most games.

    But when it’s DLC on DAY FREAKIN’ ONE I get pretty pissy.

    Couldn’t they pull an Arkham City and just include the code on every new copy of the game? No, no they couldn’t. Cheap bas…

    I’m a sad panda, even more so because ,not gonna lie, this Vergil stuff looks REALLY good.

    • gold163

      There is no confirmation that it is day one. In fact, it doesn’t have a release date. But if you BUY NOW NOW NOW YOU GET IT FREE FREE FREE!! YAY!

      So basically, you pay us NOW, and then you WAIT.

      • puchinri

        That makes it sound worse. . . ouo;

    • Berialos

      Most games go gold like 2 to 5 months before the scheduled release. With that extra time, devs use it to work on DLC nowadays, and that DLC gets patched in Day 1, or later. 

  • JazzWithAttitude

    That’s our Capcom

  • Richard N

    Thanks for fueling the flames Capcom.

    Other than that, Vergil looks pretty damn awesome to play. Here’s hoping he actually he has his own cutscenes and doesn’t just end up fighting himself for no raison.

    • http://twitter.com/ljezell Lataurean J. Ezell

      Did you even watch the video???? It’s got more then just cutscenes. Vergil has his own levels enemies and boss fights as well it’s suppose to add acouple more hours of gameplay these isn’t some simple character dlc it’s a side story.

      • Richard N

        This comment was I’m guessing a joke in referencing to DMC3 Special Edition where Vergil’s Story mode was pretty much Dante’s Story Mode, with even a Vergil Boss battle.

  • Leandro Emmanuel Gaitan

    It was pretty obvious they where gona add Virgil, afther the pull the release date so far from the original one, but REALLY! a DLC??? wow….just…..wow, when i saw the trailer i thouht, NICE I WAS RIGTH! and then…..a DLC……. i guess i will have to get it, since after a saw that Virgil is in the game, its a must now, well played Capcom well played.

  • delon33

    I seriously think that this whole thing is blown waaay out of proportions. Batman’s catwoman DLC didn’t get this much flak and that was ON DISK. I guess some people are too fazed by their emotions. I do not like this pre-order thing but many people are looking at this with crap-tinted glasses.

    EDIT: Oh yea, Borderlands 2 also did the same with the Mechromancer DLC BUT people actually praised Gearbox for it. Anyone who bought Borderlands 2 or Arkham City has no right to condemn this game.

    • gold163

      Any number of reasons why this could be blown out of proportion:

      1. People hate the new direction Capcom wants to take DmC, and they have an axe to grind. They’ll use anything Capcom does against them.

      2. People are opposed to the way Capcom’s business model operates with DLC. They have an axe to grind, and they’ll use anything Capcom does against them. Maybe they are justified, but they are specifically singling out Capcom.

      3. This isn’t actually being blown out of proportions, and is actually a bad thing. Batman’s catwoman DLC was just as bad, but didn’t receive as much negative reaction because WB is not nearly as influential in the industry as Capcom is… yet.

      • puchinri

        I mostly think it’s the latter two. And while I do think a lot of us tend to single out Capcom, I also think they make it increasingly easy to single them out (which is part of the problem).

    • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

      Is this the only site you visit? Batman and borderlands did get a lot of flak on other sites.  

  • Cephrien_Takusukai

    So this pretty much confirms that something does, indeed, go awry with Vergil in the DmC story.
    Good– For a second, I thought they were gonna make Vergil all.. “Nice” or something.

    Capcom better be right about the DLC being ACTUAL DLC this time or else, there will be hell to pay!

  • eilegz

    great preorders as usual only on the US, so people who live outside which dont have gamestop or ebgames will get shaft…. plus the fact that they planned and will release a dlc and the game its not released yet no wonder why people hate capcom…. Yeah this time its not on the disc but its a content that should be there  for free in the first place…. i really hope this thing flop so hard

    • delon33

      You only assume that the content will be ready before the game goes gold. It seems like that’s the only thing people do these days. Furthermore, if you had watched the video till the end, you would see that there will be news about the UK preorder soon so it may not be limited to the US.

  • Rafael Budzinski

    …the same sale strategy as many other games around, nothing new. I too ain’t too much of a fan of Capcom’s actual sale strategy, but c’mon, talking how “Capcom is the worst developer actually…blahblahblah DLC…” and not saying anything about all the “breathtaking” and totally “important” FFXIII-2′s DLC for an example is bullshit…

    • revenent hell

      Im one of the bigest haters of DLC so trust me its gone on about FFXIII-2 as well but it wont happen in a capcom game thred it’ll go on in a SE one.

      • Rafael Budzinski

        …I know, it was just an example. What I tried to say is this is an “old” sale strategy, we have a great number of games with exclusive pre-order goods. It’s simple as that, isn’t something “new”. I view this as with limited editions and bundles, an oportunity to buy the game and receive extra stuff with a better price. I just can’t get all the hate. Actually we have games like Assassin’s Creed 3, Assassin’s Creed Liberation, Black Ops 2, Halo 4 and others whom offered bonus stuff with pre-orders. I just can’t see why people have to be so pissed off with an oportunity to receive free extra content…¬¬

        • revenent hell

          Oh…..I got the wrong meaning then sorry its been a long day.
          But I think in particular here people get pissy at capcom ,because or well first day DLC in general, is because its supposed to be after the game not created durring it if you know what i mean,so scenarios if ready at lauunch as DLC should be on the game itself at time of purchase and not as DLC.. Pluss that and people think Capcom sets ground standards for other game companies so others might follow their lead for stuff like this….
          Well thats what ive gatherd threw comments anyways.

      I’m going to leave this comment up just so that people can laugh at you and call you an idiot.

      (ps: Consider yourself lucky that you’re, at the very least, a source of mild amusement. Else you’d be banned right away, and if you make a similar remark again in the future, you will be.)

      • Cjs0511

        Yeah because bitching at a company to make a better game is TOTALLY going to make them stop making these kinds of games.

        Laugh all you want because honestly all your bitching isn’t going to make this any better, in fact they’ll just keep doing this shit unless you people do something about it to make them see the big picture

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          Yes, death threats are indeed the solution. Oh, how I wish we could all see the light the way you do!

          • Cjs0511

            So what is the solution? Bitching about it? Because you know, thats always been productive

          • Luna Kazemaru

            How about oh I don’t know DON’T BUY THE GAME!! But hey thinking logical is to hard now day’s.

          • Cjs0511

            And not buying the game isn’t going to work since people are going to buy it anyway, hell look at RE6, people hate it and yet it sold 650,000 copies. Wouldn’t be surprised if they made a shittier version of it named Resident Evil 7

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/5UFEVTPDTXD33NSMUFMX4TEAMQ Mike

            Why are you still bitching if already know that it will amount to nothing?

          • Luna Kazemaru

            Because a few people who hate the game on the net amounts to everyone boy that internet logic! Ok we have an idiot for sure i am done before my IQ drops.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

            So if our bitching never works, what makes you think death threats will? Killing employees over a video game; what a brilliant plan.

            Face it, kid. You’re just another example of why the vocal minority make it so easy to do the same crap you do from the back of a computer screen.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          Its comments like this that leads me to hate the internet at times.

        • Tien Ron

          the company that make the video games are gamer’s so you say they don’t understand, it’s their concept and creation. so they can do with it how they will. Its their game 
          you are just the consumer that is it, if you dont like it dony buy it as much as them being gamer’s they ARE a COMPANY and companies need money to run, also to the many people slaving day and night so YOU can get come enjoyment at the comfort of your own home, NEED MONEY TO LIVE. so how about some respect?!

        • revenent hell

          Ok reality check time.  Rational people do not make death suggestions over video games. NO ONEs life is worth a fucking video game and for you to even make the rationale that its a valid excuse to make people listen to you is fucking absurd.
          I have no idea what type of home you grew up in but if I even dared think such idiocy it would have been the first and last.
          You are a childish irrational person who needs to get a dose of reality in their life because child if you believe in what you  have said here your life is going to be even harder as you grow up.
          You deserve all the mockery that befalls you here I hope people swoop en mass to violate you with words.

          As a side note im not a fan of this game but I would never equate it with the sheere ignorant statements you have….I never say this but kid you are a retard in every sence of the word.

          Edit: I have said bad words and I know it.

            As fruity loopz as I am it makes me wonder about people who think violent actions need to be taken over things that are so meaningless at the end of the day in compairison.
            This is my first view of someone suggesting such nonsence and I still cant believe someone would.
            Edit: I am more amazed people even liked his statement…like realy people? Realy?

        I can recognize the difference between someone being serious and someone making a bad joke.

        This guy is making a bad joke, but the people that gave that guy from Platinum Games death threats for Bayonetta 2 being exclusive to the Wii U were dead serious.

        I liked it just to spite everyone that you incited to bandwagon and gets on his case for making a bad joke.

        And I wanted to see your reaction.

    “Note: Capcom point out in their press release that the Vergil DLC is not on the game disc.”

    I find it kind of funny that this has to be explicitly stated.

    • British_Otaku

      Capcom have that kind of reputation where they need to say everything clearly and there is a 50/50 chance that they will have to take it back.

    DLC is truly an odd bird. Aside from the size argument whether you praise it for being 600KB (they were saving space for us) or 600GB (REAL DLC), in both cases they could either hype it up for preorders or keep it a secret till a point where they pull in a second wave of interest.

    My conclusion here is that I have no interest in paying anywhere near full price for an established franchise (yes, I’m making a special case to include DmC with DMC1-4 here) which cheats us out of standard content from prior games. Additional playable characters have been optional through unlocks in the past, so I only see the additional character as an unnecessary cost (yes, preordering has a cost, I need to budget) for content which they are advertising for the sake of preorders.

    If it was an original IP, I would be like “Oh, I need to support this” or something perhaps. >_>

  • karasuKumo

    I honestly don’t care about whether it is hidden on the disc or not, couldn’t care less it changes nothing and is irrelevant. I think in general that DLC announced before a game’s release is shameful and pointless. Just work on it in silence if it can’t be fit into the development schedule for the on-disc content before release and announce it a reasonable time after, or just work on DLC after the game’s release. Bloody simple! I feel the same for every game, and the games production/development companies that do this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jefriputra Jeff

    a paid DLC even before the game released? wow, just wow

  • Rocket D

    Capcom: Hmmm, we could be fair and make this part of the game originally but…nah, let’s make people pay for that separately.”
    “Are you sure? Maybe we can make preorder first prints like DMC3 Special Edition? And it’s an extra perk to ensure more sales first day.”
    Capcom: No, we’ll make them pay for that. That’s what DLC is for right? Taking parts of a game and selling it separately, right? Right.”

    I have a strong feeling that if DLC was not an option this generation of games then Vergil’s story would be saved for a rerelease like DMC3.

    • delon33

      So paying $30 for a re-release instead of a $9 DLC is a good thing? Wow.

      • Rocket D

        No, it’s not but you missed the point of the joke. It should already be in the game. Just like DMC Special Edition Capcom still made money and those who missed the first release not only get a price cut but more content. The PC version is already promised to be better via frame rate so throwing people a bone with a part of the game already being available makes more sense. Especially for those who don’t play games on the PC. If Capcom was to improve the console version of the game and add more content to boot then yeah I’d pay $30 instead of $9 for “extra content”. I don’t plan to buy this game when it first releases so a rerelease would save more money than not. I did the same with DMC3, was unable to buy the first release at the time then they come out with a cheaper rerelease. I initially saved money.

        Either way this should be in-game content compared to it being DLC off the bat. Spending $60 for a game (with tax) then expecting anyone who doesn’t preorder to dish out more money is kind of ridiculous but then again it’s a trend these days.

        • delon33

          For people like you who don’t buy the game at launch, of course the SE would be better but the fact is that games sell the most during its launch which means that plenty of people who bought DMC3 were screwed over since they had to pay $30 for a brand new copy instead of what the extra content itself is worth. Therefore, anyone who bought both DMC3 and DMC3:SE has no right to complain about this.

          • Rocket D

             Well, you don’t have to say “for people like me” because I do buy certain games on their release day. For me it depends the title and my money at the time. I’m not hating on DmC but I’m not spending $65 for it either. I don’t 100% like the new changes but I’m still a DMC fan so I want to see this game with my own eyes/experience it before saying I don’t like it (gameplay wise/the major changes to the franchise).

            You’re right, my idea would screw the faithful fans who will purchase on the first day. I understand that and you’re right. I see where you’re coming from and the solution isn’t as simple as “wait until the price drops” for many since I know there are people who want the game the day it hits stores. It was just my insight from a person who’s not buying it full price. You are right in your own way as well. Either way we can both agree that this Vergil content should be in the game already (well not sure if we can, you didn’t say if you like the DLC idea or not). You’re paying full price for a game that’s already less than the PC version so why not get this content without a preorder charade? (assuming you aren’t getting the PC version since you want it release day) I know it’s to promote first day/week sales but it’s screwed up too, if you look at it from anyone’s perspective who plans to get this game at all. First day or after a price drop.

  • Göran Isacson

    On the one hand, neat teleportation moves and Summoned Swords. I take it Swords replace guns and teleportation may replace Angel and Devil Grip. On the other hand… I don’t know why but Vergil seems to play strangely slow, and storyspoilers aside, this looks like a pretty important part of the puzzle that they’re basically chopping out and selling separately. Nnnot sure I like that. Not sure I like it at all.

    • $30632660

      bbbb but it has the “feel of 60 fps”!?

      • Göran Isacson

        I know, right?! I guess it’s just my eyes that there’s something wrong with, my silly eyes who look at DMC4 (latest game in the franchise I played) and then look at this and can’t help but feel like this game is that much slower. Silly, silly little eyes.

    SO it’s DLC big deal?
    either get the DLC or don’t. i really don’t understand why this is an issue they want more money for dlc SO THE HELL WHAT their working on the game it’s their hard work 
    all your doing at the end of the day is sitting in the couch playing with your thumbs pay them for their hard work NOTHING in the world is free!!!

    • revenent hell

      The problem I have,and im not speaking for others is that DLC is supposed to come out AFTER the full game has been released to elongate the game and keep it going.DLC when created at the same time as the game for all intents should be in the game at the time of sale. If its being created at the same time as the game why is it not included within it? Its not expanding upon the game at a later date to keep it going its being created at the same time as the game and if its ready upon launch day it should already be in the game and not a “DLC” item.
      For me it sets a standard that its ok to release a non finished game and sell the rest of it as DLC later”Pay more for less”
      Costumes,music,weapons ect ect I could care less about but when it comes to charecters and story elements I dont ever think it should be a “DLC” it should be a part of the main game at time of sale but I could rant endlessly about DLC and my rant dosent just go toward this game but alot of others as well…..

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    …….. i actually feels that playing as Vergil is going to be much fun that Dante lol.^_^

  • Herok♞

    Seriously guy’s you are blowing a issue out of the water for no reason, I understand the DLC hate but is it really a problem to pay full price for a game once and not have to pay extra for DLC, later sure it could be in game but then it takes longer and there is no point to that if the new character isn’t the main character. All I am saying is you guys are mad that if you even show interest in the game before its released and are rewarded for it thats a problem, it would be different if it was on the disc already, but they could have just as easily made it later without the opportunity to even get the thing for free.

  • Hinataharem

    lol nope

    Looks like Vergil plays better than Dante.

    Download a NEW chapter in DmC .. DLC announced before the game has been released ..things like this would have more of an impact if announced after the game especially when people have finished the game and want more. this makes no sense at all. why make this big deal about a NEW CHAPTER when no one has even started the first chapter … in any case smart consumers will first play DmC before cashing out money for this DLC …….. (I Hope)

    • sperium

       Maybe they’re afraid people won’t like the game enough to buy DLC -after- they play it?
