Yesterday, GameStop teased what they said was a "big announcement for a big game tomorrow". What it turned out to be was a Red Hood story pack for the upcoming action game Batman: Arkham Knight, which is allows players to play as the vigilante in an additional story available as DLC.
However, what the fine print also mentions is that this bonus content is only available to customers who have locked themselves into a pre-order from GameStop. This forces us to ask, is it right, or even acceptable, for GameStop to withhold content like this?
Personally, I can’t say I have much love left for GameStop; the retailer has already managed to worm its way further into the development process, and what we’re seeing with retailer-exclusive DLC is a result of just that.
However, I’m just one person in the sea of opinions that is the internet. What do you think? Share some thoughts in the comment section!
