    Very disappointed to hear this. Announcing a season pass months before the game’s release is a terrible business practice (not to mention the scumminess of selling songs from the anime in it). The reversal of the delay looks like they decided to sell the extra characters in the season pass rather than include them in the main game. I’m cancelling my preorder and I won’t be getting the game any time soon.

      Well aren’t you an unfaithful person. Bailing out on a great fighting game just because of something that is happening since 2010.

    • Mr0303

      Why should I be faithful? I simply won’t support terrible business practices.

    • AlterKnight569

      Terrible business practices have always been around from Triple A games in indie games in the 90’s and today. It’s just become more noticeable nowadays because of the internet’s spread of information. Even so, I think it’s just extremely limiting your options for entertainment to find great fighting games nowadays since they all have this similar practice, and they are never going away.

    • Mr0303

      So? Bad business practices existing for a long time is not in any way an argument that I have to support companies who implement them – quite the contrary. If they have the balls to screw over the consumer thinking they’ll get away with it despite the backlash against that behaviour for decades, it’s more of a reason for me to boycott their product.

      It’s not my fault that fighting games are one of the worst offenders. I’ll simply play ones that don’t have that crap like KOFXIV or less popular ones.

    • AlterKnight569

      It’s not your fault for sure. You can have a choice to boycott, but there are still tons of people that won’t take that choice. Not because that they disagree with you, but because they are used to it. I don’t think consumers actually are getting screwed in the long run since in the past, people used to pay a lot of money to companies through various other means like video game accessories tailored to specific games like the Power Glove, or extraneous amounts of consoles like the Intellivision, Sega consoles, handhelds, etc. DLC and season passes are more or less a streamlined version of those practices to get more money since the 60 dollar price tag is no longer enough to cover game development costs.

      The point is, people have been through these practices before in the past, and they are still going to go through with the current ones today. We have become accustomed and adapted to them time and time again to enjoy those games past their controversy. Even when these season passes go away eventually, companies will find new ways to make more money out of people in order to cover their huge development costs and try to make a good profit. Then, people will just have to adapt to those new ways to get their full enjoyment. And the cycle repeats over and over. It just depends on tolerance, and quite frankly, you are part of an unfaithful minority that has very little tolerance and patience, while majority of people have grown a more healthy tolerance.

      “You can have a choice to boycott, but there are still tons of people that won’t take that choice.” – and I should care about those people because…?

      “DLC and season passes are more or less a streamlined version of those
      practices to get more money since the 60 dollar price tag is no longer
      enough to cover game development costs.” – for one thing its ludicrous to suggest that DLC is the same as selling accessories like the Power Glove or different consoles. You are comparing apples to oranges. One is an extra that console manufacturers sell or a game platform that allows to play different games and the other is a decision made by a publisher of a specific game. Also I don’t buy the budget excuse one bit. If there are indie games that achieve mainstream popularity, then the AAA games could also do so without fleecing the consumer. Gaming studios spending over 60% of the budget on marketing is in no way a justification for terrible practices.

      “We have become accustomed and adapted to them time and time again to enjoy those games past their controversy.” – just because you were trained to accept these bad habits doesn’t mean that I have to.

      “And the cycle repeats over and over. It just depends on tolerance, and
      quite frankly, you are part of an unfaithful minority that has very
      little tolerance and patience, while majority of people have grown a
      more healthy tolerance.” – it’s quite ironic that you’d use the term faithful again. It does suggest a cult like behaviour with no independent thought. I don’t care if I’m in a minority. In fact I only represent myself and the only type of protest I can do against these practices is to vote with my wallet and not purchase games that have them. I also find it laughable that you’d suggest that tolerance towards bad DLC is healthy. It is this exact mode of thinking that has allowed fighting games to have such fragmented content. Perhaps some people may wise up to this crappy behaviour if Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite sales are something to go by.
