Over the weekend, it was discovered that forthcoming downloadable content for Street Fighter X Tekken already exists on the game disc itself, meaning that purchasing said content actually boils down to simply unlocking it. Some fans were riled by the revelation, enough so that Capcom has issued a statement on the matter.

According to the publisher, the DLC was placed on the disc in order to "save hard drive space and to ensure for a smooth transition when the DLC is available." Capcom community manager Brett Elston elaborated that including the DLC on the disc will allow all users to play against one another, regardless of whether or not they have purchased the DLC. Having a single, unified version of the game, said Elston, allows "everyone to participate in the update without additional patches or hiccups."

Another reason for the on-disc content, said Elston, is Capcom's promise to avoid a "super" version of SFxT akin to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

we put it on the disc so we can sell it to you later! That's all! :X

What have Tekken done lowering themselves to Street Fighter's girly level.

PS. If its on the disk but not playable that does not make DLC. DLC means "Downloadable Content" sooooo yeah Capcom are bull shitters.

They said all future updates will be DLC.

So instead of doing what they usually do and hold back content/characters for a future disc version (Super, Turbo, SUPER TURBO, etc) they add all of it on disc with whatever state the code is currently.

This way when the characters are finished (As in move sets, frame data, balance, all that good stuff) the patch will just be a small bit of code to update what's currently there instead of making you download all the models and textures.

Because lets face it, they'll have been working on these characters anyway and if they weren't balanced fully or weren't quite finished they would've just not included them in the game and released a second disc with "Super" or something tacked on in front.

The game is fun as frick and even without the DLC you're getting more than the last few Capcom fighters have provided.

It wouldn't be capcom unless they pumped out at least 3 more versions of the same fighting game.

Or they'll go that way with the dlc :P, like character pack #1, super character pack #1 with one extra character and super mega character mega awesome character pack with a whopping two extra characters.

Wasn't really surprised to see the words Capcom, DLC, on-disc and on launch. If it's only a unlock for the disc content via online networks, Capcom has lowered the bar even further for "online compatibility reasons". You could just as well make everyone download a small patch for DLC compatibility for online gaming since you still have to be online to play online. Bad just an excuse for being lazy. Gotta miss the times when updates were made for extra content instead of pay for extra content regardless of what it includes..
