Every time you start the game you have to connect to the internet to use the DLC. I don't mind buying some DLC outfits to support the dev, but when I don't have access to the internet I don't have the DLC is bullcrap. Please do not support this!

Wow, thanks for the warning. That's stupid regardless, but it's not like it's on a home console where you're online 99% of the time ... It's a handheld, if you take it with you somewhere there's a good chance you won't be online.

I was just baffled by this when it happened. I was very angry when it happened.

Well, there is a warning in text with each item sold, so you were warned,,, read the fine print next time.

Uh, ok! You, as a consumer, bought something that was clearly labeled and were disappointed because,,, you didn´t read the label?

Someone seems grumpy. I get exactly what you're saying, and as someone with many years of retail experience I can honestly say that you sir, are less bright then my burnt out christmas lights that need replacing.

happy holiday! This is a cool little game btw

Don't be an ass. This is a ridiculous policy, a warning is well deserved whether it's labelled or not. It's not a standard practice at all so it's not exactly expected. And I guarantee you've skipped over a label at least once in your life.

Could we bring this up to Aksys and ask them about it? In their own forums maybe. It really is a ridiculous policy for a handheld game. It's not like you'll be home all the time and have access to the internet.

I agree with you completely, and I agree that tp has reason to be upset. 110% bullcrap dlc that shouldn't be allowed, but in the end someone at sony decides to validate the sale of this product, and I'm certain there was a meeting about the way that said dlc should be described on psn.

it clearly says that said item is only available while playing online. Why would anyone buy such a thing? Well, know we know why. Because people don't read the label.

And yeah, I've skipped countless labels in my life I'm sure, but there is no excuse for being a lazy consumer these days, especially when so much product infomation is at our proverbil fingertips at all times.

It's like buying an apple, when there is all types of evidence pointing to the fact that it will rot over time, and then getting upset when it rots month later and complaining about it on Ihateapples.org message boards.

Anyway, didn't mean to offend anyone, to quote the GZA "You gotta read the labels".

Your analogy would only make sense if virtually every other type of apple never rotted. I can think of a very small number of similar cases as this but most DLC works fine offline. Yes TC made a mistake but it's uncalled for to say he's lazy, it could happen to anyone, even you. So chastizing because he's trying to save others from making the same mistake is pretty rude and doesn't really add anything. Especially since TC learned the lesson firsthand, he doesn't need you repeating the obvious.
