Marvel VS Capcom 3 Fate of Two Worlds : No Demo Version

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Strategic Planning Vice President Christian Svensson [on the Marvel VS Captom division] has announced that there will NOT be a download demo of the upcoming title.

Svenson also announced that there will be down-loadable characters for a small fee.  While most gamers are quuk to rise up in anger over teh subject of paying full retail price for a game, and getting nickel and dimed on the extras, Svenson stated that “DLC is part of the business model these days given the massive costs of production and can be the difference between a profitable product and an unprofitable product.”

My many condolences to the TSG fighting game thread viewers and contributers.
