Black is an EXTRA feature [Apr. 14th, 2007|10:57 am]

symbioid came across this:

from Acclaim message boards (and via an official moderator, no less) regarding their game Dance!:

"But the default skin tone we have in DANCE! is white. If you want something extra your going to have to pay." and "Black is an EXTRA feature. It makes your person look unique, so that is an EXTRA feature. Therefore, you having to PAY for it. (Or ask a friend to pay for it)."

Fortunately, they're soooo generous, that, look, it's basically FREE!

"As an optional character upgrade, we must put this in the item shop for players to acquire. This is the only way to offer the African-American heads. However, it should be EASILY accessible to all, so we made it just 1 POINT in the shop (which is basically for FREE). You don't have to spend any money to get it, just play the game and earn points. Thanks!"

Sadly, they don't.

The default is white.

You have to pay extra to be black.
