Op Ed

Ars Technica - Why on-disc downloadable content isnít the crime itís made out to be.
So let's all settle down. Just because a portion of a game disc is locked away as DLC doesn't mean you're getting ripped off. Both games and DLC are still value propositions that have to be judged on their own merits, regardless of whether they're available on disc from day one or not. You're not entitled to free content just because it's on the disc, or because it's taking away from what "should" have been in the core game. Don't like it? Don't buy it!

This is akin to Amazon selling you the kindle version of a book, but charging you extra if you want to read the chapters that it deems aren't really important to the overall plot of the book.

What? You got the gist, right? You don't NEED those extra chapters. Just because they are already on your Kindle doesn't mean you are entitled to read them without paying more.

You bought the Avengers on bluray, but we locked out 20 minutes of the movie that we deemed "extra." You have to pay more to see it. What? A different unit worked on those scenes. You're not entitled to them just because they are on the disc.

This guys argument is bullshit, and I think he knows it. Fluff for fluff's sake.
