There's already been Red Bull costumes and CPT logos etc in the CPT stages so I don't see an issue with this.

I predicted last year that at some point games will start adding ads to the loading screen.
That's been done already. I think Deus Ex added them in last gen.

I'll get sponsored just like a pro :P

If the increase in earned fight money is substantial i'll enable the sponsored content.

Yes, Capcom will be the one starting a trend of limited time in game ads for the stuff they produce.

Pay no attention to the Smash Bros Splatfest going on this weekend in Splatoon 2.
Shit, I had no idea that Splatoon 2 was a fighting game.

Who's your main?

So it's only a problem when it's done in fighting games?
Who said that lmao?

I said start a trend and I was talking about fighting games copying this and you assumed that I was talking about all games rather than fighters without even asking what I meant. Fighting games copy other fighting games if something works hence why I said that.

Why not make it F2P at this point? I can't see any new players mass buying this, so may as well try to make some costume/characters money. You can even lock out some options if you don't want people grinding too much fm, and at this point you can get that much money on single player instantly unlike the season 2 pass era.

Also, don't mind the ads, it will make less tedious getting the 1.000.000. fm trophy

I paid $60 for this garbage at launch, it's still not fixed, and now they're just giving it away? I'm never giving Capcom another dollar.
1.) They fixed a LOT
2.) Are you actually complaining about a free week 2 years after release?

Grow up.

We're gonna be at the point pretty soon were AE is going to be 15, and the season 3 pack will get cheaper and cheaper. 30 bucks for a complete edition ain't bad.

Basically the last thing CApcom needs to do is further gimp the fight money system because it's already kind of borked after the inclusion of lootboxes and extra battles.

you're making the people who went cuckoo over bf5, hitman 2 and tomb raider going on sale a few weeks after their launch look rather sane, now

Only issue I'd have with this is if leaving it on impacted framerate/loadtimes, otherwise I couldn't possibly care less. I barely notice the stage while I'm playing anyways.

Really curious about how much extra FM this will get you
With how stingy they've become with FM it'll probably be like 5 extra.

How's this game on PC now a days? I just remember the hubbub about it having a rootkit in it at one point.
feels good, looks crisp, highly moddable, loads super fast, PS4/PC cross play

rootkit was patched out literally within 24 hours of the PC launch...

Sounds pretty cool. I hope many people try this out as it will be free to download without PS+. It’s a great time to jump into the game.
