10 Overpriced Video Game BS You Should AVOID

8. Street Fighter 6's $15 Turtles Costumes

Diablo IV

Back in August, Capcom announced a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed DLC for their hit fighting game Street Fighter 6, allowing players to purchase skins of each of the four Turtles for use in the game's World Tour and Battle Hub modes.

Yet it ultimately turned out that each Turtle costume cost 750 Fighter Coins, amounting to almost $15 in real-world money, ensuring that you needed to fork out an exorbitant $55 to have Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo in your repertoire.

And if you wanted all the associated sticker sets, taunts, wallpapers, and so on, you'd end up half-shelling out (sorry) around $100.

Naturally many cried foul that this was an egregious monetary expectation from Capcom, all the more so given that the Turtles themselves are simply avatar costumes and don't allow players to fight as the actual quartet with bespoke animations, voiceovers, and so on.

Some players hilariously responded by refusing to open their wallets and instead making their own decidedly less-detailed Turtles in the game's avatar creation suite.

Much like the Mortal Kombat 1 debacle, it's a damn shame to see such gross practises shoved into an otherwise outstanding fighter.
