    I think Sony would be making a grave mistake if they followed through with something like this. I just hope Microsoft isn't stupid enough to go along with it thinking it's a good idea.
    They already make you pay for online. That alone is a scam to me. In a world where multiplayer games reign king making them all P2P is ridiculously greedy. Might as well send a check to Universal everytime I re watch a movie on DVD,

    Characters shouldn't really be optional for fighting games with online. Costumes are fine since they're just aesthetic, but separate characters aren't. They have their own movesets, and so it's unfair towards the people who didn't buy the DLC but did buy the game for full price. People who pay full price deserve to get a complete game, not bits and pieces.

    Chizfreak: I wasn't very good(lost to a 10 year old), let that same 10 year old borrow it like a month ago. I'm definitely down to take you on when I remember to get it back though.
    Armageddon had a roster of about 50 characters and while some of them (meat) where just funny little things over 40 of them where detailed characters and had a big part in the over all story. now back to MK9 if you, like me, loved kenshi, and where told that because he was not in the story he could never be played, you would be pretty pissed. but nether-realm did something pretty cool with their DLC characters they let US choose, it was a vote and kenshi and rain won it. the brilliant part about this DLC is it is not needed, you can leave it if you think its a waste. day 1 dlc is fine as long as it doesn't take away from the over all story E.G. mass effect 3. buy all this "id rather the game take longer" logic that means that we would not have gotten dark souls till early this year because the DLC we had gotten was just unfinished parts from the original (look in the art book you can see some of the DLC bosses). pluss there is a LOT more that was going to be there.

    You are paying them to maintain the servers and other such necessities.

    Sony does it just fine without that. And $60 a person per year sub. is more than enough.
