Risen 2 DLC Already on Disc?

A forum thread on GameFAQs has indications that Risen 2: Dark Waters may be the latest game to ship with what's supposed to be future DLC included on the retail disc. The thread outlines the discovery, and spawns one of those heated discussions over the ethics of making content on the game disc dependant on a future. Thanks Blend Games.

What's fun is that this isn't unique to video games.

Want to buy a machine for a factory or even a doctor's office? There's a click fee involved, so every time you use that machine you send some cash to the company that made that machine.

I'm getting laser eye surgery and when I was in for my consultation the doctor was telling me all about the scheme for his laser as you describe. He was showing me these cards that are one time use that cost him some ridiculous amount of money. My mind immediately jumped to DRM/DLC and I had to stop myself from chuckling as I listened to his rage which was along the lines of "These greedy fucking assholes already charged me $5 million for the laser and now they want another $500 every time I use it!"
