Except its not real issue. Its only some fringe case defenders of anti-consumer practices use to defend what Capcom did here. Real issue is another scumbag company trying to push microtransactions in single player game. To make matters worse - those are mtx with gameplay items - even free2play games get flak for those, yet some of you pretend like this is somehow ok.
And no - it was also not ok in DMC4 SE. It was also shitty anti-consumer bullshit they pushed in their game.
Go ahead, defend company trying to serve you shit on a platter next to your meal. It may not bother you, it may not touch your food, it may even not smell so bad - but its still there. Its really smart to act against your own best interest - isn't it?
