So apparently Mortal Kombat Ten has On-Disc Downloadable Content.
This seems to be newsworthy according to the Internet. Example:
I have always wondered why people get mad at that in the context that this is an accepted practice in areas outside of DLC.
As some of you may be World of Warcraft players, surely you know that everone downloads the same files for the game. Then people can play a the part of the content they paid for (up to LV20 if nothing, up to LV90 if they purchased the starter Edition, up to the maximum Level if they purchased all Expansions) and for as long as they paid.
I also remember purchasing an Operating System back in the days where DLC had not been a thing.
There was the Windows Vista DVD with all Versions, and you could install the one which Key you paid for: Trial, Professional, or Ultimate.
Why is it not the same for Video Games? You install Mortal Kombat Ten and then either you paid for the game + the easy Fataliteis DLC then you have access to both or you paid just for the game, then you also have access to only that.
If the trend of Blackmouthing On-Disc DLC continues, then at worst Developers are going to spend development time seperating their Game for the extra-pay bits to be downloaded later instead of developing content. Also the Download Process takes time for players and stresses Servers, thereby increasing the costs.
