This is both good news and bad news if indeed the klassic costumes are a part of this.
Firstly, I am going to show how it makes sense that the Klassic Costumes are on the disc and not DLC.
1. The Challenge Tower has the old school kombat challenge where both sub-zero and scorpion skins come into play.
2. In the Gamestop TV Ad, the commentator at the end says "Pre-order at gamestop to UNLOCK Scorpions Klassic Costume and Fatality".
Now if that is indeed the case, this brings back to the good news, bad news situation.
The good news: The klassic costumes are essentially free, the pre-order bonuses are designed to give you early access to whichever costume you prefer without having to play through the game to unlock them in the krypt. It is not DLC at all.
The bad news: The bad news is that NRS should have clarified this earlier. Many people pre-ordered multiple copies/editions of the game thinking the skins were DLC and not unlockables in the krypt and didnt want to wait before they become released on XBL or PSN. Basically, the people have wasted their money because they can easily enough unlock the costumes in the krypt, which they spent real life money for, they couldve just bought one edition for the skin they wanted the most.
If what I said ends up being true, NRS needs a swift kick in the ass for doing this. They basically ripped off people by not telling us that the costumes were NOT DLC and were on the disc. Everyone was under the impression the costumes were DLC, hence many threads were created with people conflicted, not knowing where to pre-order from, talking about pre-ordering multiple copies for the different costumes, etc.
All of this could have been avoided. The question is, did NRS purposely not expose this information til now so they could make serious profit from this? I know they tweeted that theyre not expecting us to pre-order from every retailer, but they didnt specify exactly why, and people still went along with it.
Someone with Twitter please tweet this to any NRS related twitter account, as this is a serious issue.
