Capcom’s Plan to Charge for Cheat Codes Backfires

In a market where a lot of people don’t seem to hesitate to buy $15 map packs it may not be too surprising to learn that Capcom plans to charge for cheat codes. I’m sure most of us can recall a time where you could simply go to a menu and proceed to enable something like big head mode, invincibility, or paintball mode all for free.

Unfortunately, what’s more surprising is that this isn’t the first time a company has tried to charge for cheat codes. Back in 2006 with Tiger Woods PGA Tour EA wanted to charge gamers for cheats. This kind of cheat DLC has died down since then, but now Capcom has decided to try to make us hit our heads with our wallets in Dead Rising 2 once again.

Fortunately, for those who don’t like to spend money on things that should be free, there seems to be quite a backlash against Capcom for trying to get away with this form of DLC in Dead Rising 2. As you may have already noticed, the video below, which showcases the new GameBreaker DLC in Dead Rising 2, has an enormous amount of dislikes and angry comments made by gamers.
