Petitioning Capcom

Stop being exploitative of its gaming fanbase

  I am starting a petition against capcoms current bad business practices, encouraging you to buy capcom games used and dont buy any of their DLC.

Let them know that they can no longer continue to milk their fan-base! Show them that we are paying attention to their "tactics" and we will not be taken advantage of anymore. Also use facebook to log in and sign the petition quick and easy.

 

 

If you would like to help write the petition or search the net for quotes from legitimate gaming sites and those in the industry (must list source) talking about capcoms current bad business practices, please comment below. or just start messaging me what you have.

Industry words:
Gaming Blend says,

No HighScores says,
"Don't you love it when game publishers withhold content that's already on the disc not for DLC, but delay its availability to keep you from trading in your games during the launch window? So it goes with Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, already a shady double-dip from a company that is becoming more and more aggressively exploitative of its fanbase."
