RE5 DLC Already on Disc
Pay $5 to unlock the new Versus Mode.
April 7, 2009 - Today, Capcom released new downloadable content for Resident Evil 5 on Xbox 360, with a PS3 version coming this Thursday. Versus Mode enables four players to enjoy two different modes: Slayers and Survivors. The cost in the US is 400 MSP ($5), but is cheaper in Japan at 160 MSP ($2). The cost difference is likely indicative of Japanese gamers' reluctance to pay for bonus content. We were certain the $3 price hike for other territories would be the biggest controversy, but on Tuesday morning, that was proven incorrect.
The total download size for RE5 Versus Mode is 1.86MB. You are not, in fact, downloading the content from Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Network. Instead, you are downloading a key that unlocks content already on the RE5 retail disc. The same disc you paid $60 for a month ago.
When asked to justify why gamers who already shelled out $60 for a copy of RE5 should have to pay extra to unlock content included on the disc, a Capcom representative said: "Versus mode represents content that was created outside the scope of the original design of Resident Evil 5. This is an all new mode that required additional resources to create, not to mention the additional bandwidth costs."
The bandwidth costs are related to the PS3 version. Sony charges publishers for servers used for online games, which is why PS3 online is free to consumers. Microsoft includes these costs with the $50 Gold subscription paid for by Xbox gamers.
