They're also just a co-publisher, not the developer in this case. So what they do in other cases is probably completely irrelevant here. Why? They're not advertising that you're getting that content, are they? It's not like they're saying on the box "Here's what you get!" and then simply don't give you that stuff unless you pay more. It's *extra content*. Would you feel better if they simply didn't include the stuff on the disc, but instead made you download it? Do you realise that that makes no real difference? I really, really don't get all this principled raging against a product. It's a product. If you don't like it, then don't buy it!
