It's like a car that comes with a full tank and there is no way to unfuel
it. Or a hybrid car that only needs gas the first time you start it.
I have to disagree, unlike cars, mileage on a game is mostly irrelevant.
This has been my whole argument.
Eusis, you are damn right... Capcom actually used the "we did it for the arcade experience" line? That's an excellent excuse in my opinion. Rent a game, and you are now competing with your neighborhood? That means they did it FOR 2nd hand users, not against.
I'm not missing the point here, but if the game strictly had online leaderboards (which you also can't erase) and made every skill and character available from the start, no one would complain.
It's only when you transplant this into other situations that it becomes a problem for the public. This was a huge release for the 3DS, and now it's been ruined by shit that *might* happen in the future.
