It must be an error for PS4, which is even their biggest platform. It would be one of their dumbest mistakes yet, of which there are already many, if it wasn't an error. Most people casually buy just one or the other costume out of a set, instead of a whole set. I for example never bought any season pass or complete costume set and I still spent hundreds of €/$ buying costumes and characters and other DLC over the life span of DOA5. Those hundreds of €/$ will be entirely lost for them for DOA6 if they pull a stunt like this.
The x100 bonus got extended to the 28th. And that behavior is normal for other fighting games, logic is tied to framerate on pretty much every fighter since SFII and DOA6 was seemingly the first to buck that trend. Guess I wasn't seeing things on the preview vids that had framerate dips.Did they just end the x100 bonus?
Also, is anyone else getting worse performance after the patch? It's like before my framerate would just be whatever it would be, but now it's like they tied the framerate to the game speed so if I'm on forbidden fortune or the throwdown then my game seems to run in slow motion instead of before where it was normal speed but just a lower framerate :(
(I'm on PC)
Even better, no costume patterns are ever lost anymore. When you earn 300 patterns and it goes to a 200 pattern costume, the rest of the points goes to another costume for the same character. If all costumes of that character are already unlocked the points go to a random costume for a random other character. They actually thought this through this time, lol.
That's the whole point that the full game is cheaper than the F2P version, that's how you make money and how DOA5 and KI already did it.
You can't buy individual characters- at least not on Steam.EDIT!! Never mind, the characters ARE up for sale individually. They just didn't show up in the DLC list I clicked on for whatever reason. They're $4 each.
This is what is what else is currently being offered for Core Fighters:
Female Fighters Set $40
Male Fighters Set $34
Story Unlock Key $20
I don't get the pricing here. Might as well just buy the full game, lol. It's cheaper.
Then for the full game, there's also:
Happy Wedding Costume Vol. 1 Set $20
Nyotengu unlock $4
Season Pass 1 $93
oh that's awesome!
Yeah seemed obvious from the beginning this was the reason
This still makes no sense. Momiji was in a fanservice DoA spinoff, she was in DoA5, she is in Venus Vacation a DoA spinoff handled by a different distributor (dmm) even
Welp, they lost me... They can keep all of their DLC.Offering a core version for people who only want a few characters and not allowing said people to get costumes for those characters individually might be one of the dumbest decisions possible
Also not allowing people to buy coatumes who want to buy certain costumes for certain characters in general.
Who is the idiot that made this decision. Literally preventing people from buying shit for your game.
Who makes all these decisions at Koei Tecmo in regards to doa 6? All of them are bad. The original way to unlock costumes. The amount of pattern points we were suppose to get and now this dlc nonsense........
And yeah, screw this, especially when I would've only wanted one based on the designs in it.
I can believe it. Best Buy offered a $10 giftcard with purchase (as opposed to $10 in reward points), and they only seem to do that for games with incredibly low preorders, like Agents of Mayhem.
PS4 for online community longevity (in addition to being the one DoAEra will be using for lobbies once the game has them), XB1 as the only one that doesn't make people buy entire costume packs to get the few they actually want. Not gonna lie, this change in policy in letting only Xbox players buy what they want has killed much of my interest in bothering with the full game.
Probably Xbox then. I don't really play online.
Depends what is important for you tbh.
They really seem to favor the Xbox version this time and on the other hand try their best to cripple the game on PS4.PS4 for online community longevity (in addition to being the one DoAEra will be using for lobbies once the game has them), XB1 as the only one that doesn't make people buy entire costume packs to get the few they actually want.

Almost feels like Itagaki snuck back into the company.They really seem to favor the Xbox version this time and on the other hand try their best to cripple the game on PS4.
There's no HDR on any other platform except Xbox One, Individual costumes can only be bought on Xbox, Xbox One X got a 4K mode, while PS4 Pro is probably not enhanced at all, at least John of Digital Foundry voiced his suspicions in the DOA6 tech analysis thread.
Probably not much of anything that could be done with a late-gen base XB1 multiplatform game in that regard even with presuming no biases, the relatively underwhelming stages not proving to be any less taxing on the hardware it seems.
It's in the patch notes, they're improving the graphics when they can.
Fucking ridiculous. I'm sorry, but this is the most baffling move so far for me. I will still enjoy playing the game from time to time but I guess I won't be putting as much time as I wanted to into it now and think twice about purchasing a potential DOA7 day 1 (if that one ever happens that is). They can't expect people to purchase bundles of $20 each (or whatever they will be) just to get 1 or 2 costumes for the characters they actually like or enjoy playing. And this isn't even a business decision, because they allow for this on Xbox One. I doubt it's a Sony policy or anything either, because DOA5LR did just fine and Street Fighter 5 allows individual costume purchases as well (although via the in-game store front that connects to PSN). In-between the dumb costume unlocking system, releasing the F2P version just barely 2 weeks after the original release (they never officially hinted at such an early release, they only said they don't know an exact release date yet) and now this I actually feel betrayed as a loyal customer and will think twice supporting them in the future. I'm sorry.
