Capcom Charges Money For Cheat Codes

Aww, I thought we were done with this, publishers? Charging for cheat codes was the craze sweeping the nation in 2007-2009, until even EA, who helped start the trend, realised it was a little beyond the pale. Guess Capcom never got that memo!

The Japanese publisher has released a piece of downloadable content for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record called the "GameBreaker pack".

It adds exclusive features like a god mode, big heads and infinite weapon longevity. Or, you know, stuff that used to be easily accessible in a cheat code.

If you know someone who even thinks about buying this, take their wallets, and don't give them back until they promise to wise up. And if you know someone at Capcom involved in this kind of business, give them a very disapproving look.

    Do they disable Trophies/Achievements?
    If not this dlc could be helpful for people trying to get some of them Trophies or achievements

    What about Bad Company 2 selling a code that unlocked all the weapons you otherwise had to earn?

    Does anyone know if Battlefield 3 do this too?

    Games these days are too easy to even require cheat codes =/

    Unless we're talking silly cheats like in GTA with flying cars, low gravity & such!

    Very disapproving of this feature. Charging for what used to be unlockable is bad enough.

    You Guys are suprised? This is Fucking Capcom we are talking about here. They've been doing Shit like this for Fucking ages!

      Seconded. Capcom will take any chance it can get to take money from their customers.

        should be more worried that if this takes off that other companies will follow.
