Forgive me for beating a dead horse here, but Metal Gear Rising is showcasing a particularly awful kind of DLC.

Not only is this DLC being pushed, with screenshots, a solid two weeks before release, but the DLC is VR missions – staples of the Metal Gear Solid series that have, until now, shipped on disc.

Now it costs extra.

At the same time, Ni No Kuni and Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale are both staging free DLC.

So paint me befuddled. That’s all I have to say.
