Pre-order bonuses are just another example. Pre-orders look good to show off to publishers and others, and earn a lot in the process.
I don't think anyone is really complaning about DLC. It's the on-disc content such as online passes and day-one dlc that's usually already on the disc such as Dragon Age 2 had that your locked out off if you buy used that is the problem and wrong. That is taking away.

Really. What do you think would have happened if Bethesda hadn't patched Skyrim or Fallout 3 after release? people wouldn't have brought the next games because they would be expecting a glitched mess and knew it wouldn't get fixed. Likewise don't you think the Witcher brand would have been damaged if CD Projekt hadn't fixed The Witcher on the PC with patches? It would have seriously hurt the sales of Witcher 2.
