Congratulations, I’m Buying Metro: Last Light Used

In Soviet Russia, games play you! Hahaha…ha…no. The reason I’m digging up this ancient meme is because I’m going to talk about Metro: Last Light. M:LL is the sequel to Metro 2033, based on the (incredible) book of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky. That game is coming out this week, and Deep Silver is not getting a cent of my money.

The story is too old to be commented.
Prcko1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

if you wanna support metro,and if you are fan of metro,extra 5$ won't kill you,anyway true fans alrdy have game preordered for long time so i don't see some big deal.
I know this system sucks,but i hope they gonna change that in future.

jcnba281563d ago

Yes $5 won't kill anyone but if we support it the developers are just going to keep on doing it. When I pay €60 for a game I expect to get the full game.

NorbertJr1563d ago

Agreed but I just want to clarify that it's the publishers, not the developers who pull stunts like this.

Jovanian 1563d ago

last light is only € 49.99

HammadTheBeast1563d ago

And it's bullshit cause this was standard in the last game, so it's blatanlty obvious that they cut this out.

ZombieNinjaPanda1563d ago

Doesn't matter if its the publisher or the developers pulling it. Shouldn't be supported at all. Gamers being the most ass-backwards group of consumers ever need to learn to stick up for themselves against practices like this instead of saying "TRUE FANS SUPPORT THEM"

Reminds me of idiotic fangirls I must deal with in the music industry. Their favorite stars insult them and degrade them, but "TROO FANS WILL SUPPORT THEM".

vallencer1563d ago


It was NOT standard in the other game actually. On the xbox version it was 240 points it was only free on steam.


Granted this cost more which sucks but i'm pre ordering the game so i get it for free what do i care.

MaxXAttaxX1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

The more money you give them, the more they'll repeat these things. A lot of people forget that.

aCasualGamer1563d ago

Kudos to the author of this article for making the point simple and clear. Voting with the wallet seems to be the only way publishers get it. I was looking forward to higher difficulty and no HUD but i'm following suit, voting with my wallet i choose to pass on Metro: Last Light. I'm a gamer, but i'm not about to bend over for publishers.

Hate when industry decisions like DLC force gamers to pass on franchises they enjoyed back in the days.

Kran1563d ago

Notice how you said developers and not publishers.

There is a difference you know.

RumbleFish1563d ago

I don't want publishers to go on like this. So I don't buy the game. I'd really like to play it, but I'm not going to support those strategies.

minimur121563d ago

love how jcnba28 is just agreeing with prcko, yet prcko gets 65 disagrees and jcnb gets 70 agrees xD

I always try my best to get a game new. unless the game isnt in production anymore (heavy rain)

coolbeans1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )


He only agrees with Prcko about $5 not being that much. The rest of his statement provides something different from what Prcko's says.

Hercules1891563d ago

Lol at all of you that are missing out on a great game bcus of $5. I will gladly pay that $5, is it a bit of a rip off, sure, but i dont let anything stopping me from experiencing a great game.

medziarz1563d ago

Then pre-order for $60 and get the "full game".

DwopeMunky1562d ago

Its strange though, here in the UK they are selling the limited edition at £35 which is £5 cheaper that what games generally cost.

Autodidactdystopia1559d ago

Wow read this article


"When 4A needed another dev kit, or high-end PC, or whatever, someone from 4A had to fly to the States and sneak it back to the Ukraine in a backpack lest it be "seized" at the border by thieving customs officials."

"There were no outlets in the Ukraine, and our only option was to pack a truck in Poland and try to find an "expediter" to help bribe its way down to Kiev."

"I truly enjoyed Far Cry 3, which deserved its great reviews. But how many times did Ubisoft Montreal lose power for hours or days during development?"

"All developers have deadlines, but I know of few that had to bring in construction generators to be able to work the weekend before final submission because an extra day meant missing shelf dates by weeks."

"Then 4A works in their parkas and struggles to keep their fingers warm in temperatures well below freezing."

"The only thing for which 4A is getting more credit than I think they deserve is the creativity behind the ever frightening, dark, post apocalyptic environment of the game. I've been in Kiev to visit the team, so I know they just stepped outside for reference."

"If 4A had been given a more competitive budget, in a saner environment, hadn't wasted a year-plus chasing the irrational requirement of THQ's original producers to fit multiplayer and co-op into the same deadline and budget(!), hadn't had to deal with the transition to a new publisher in the crucial few months before final, what could 4A have created?"

$5 today, $50 tomorrow.

Hellsvacancy1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

Does anybody know if this affects getting the platinum trophy? I shall be renting it if it does, I dont pre-order games

wirapuru1563d ago

"I know this system sucks,but i hope they gonna change that in future."

Riiight. And you're hoping that 'they' are going to change that when people are actually accepting it (@you) and arguing in favor of it (@you). Right.

dazzrazz1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

It is a big deal ! They are slowly trying to monetize and dissect every aspect of the game. Cheats for sale $$$ game modes and difficulty for sale $$$

They basically advertised Ranger mode the way it meat to be played and then went " Oops sorry If you did not pre-order this game you wont get it, unless you pay extra $5 bucks later for unlock file. This is basically punishing hones consumers for fucking not pre ordering a game !!! Guess who is gonna end up completely harmless... Pirates, because bootleg game will have a way to get around this problem

Metro.Last.Light.Limited.Edit ion.DLC.Unlocker.PS3-DUPLEX

Because publishers come up with such a stupid ideas i will patiently, peacefully wait till this game drops all they way to the price of $20

jon12341563d ago

the reasons companies get away with crap like this is because of people like you who support it!

Imalwaysright1563d ago (Edited 1562d ago )

Yes and when gamers speak up against crap like this, the people that enjoy bending over are call us entitled whiners.

Cyfyxtfg1563d ago

You guys know the retail store forced them to do this right? there was an article the other day. Deep silver literally came out and said that retail stores forced their hand and they had to have a pre order item. Deep silver didnt want to do this so stop complaining

gamegenieny1563d ago

Sorry that doesn't fly because they have preorder items. There's a gun and in game currency (i believe) and i think a digital book. So they had preorder items, so why add the hard mode to that ?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1562d ago

Not true. There are plenty of games That don't have a preorder bonus at all. Take Tales of Xillia for example.

SilentNegotiator1563d ago

An extra $10 won't kill you.

An extra $15 won't kill you.

An extra $20 won't kill you.

An extra...

TemplarDante1563d ago

Heres an analogy I wrote below.

If a group of five people are around a campfire
waiting for it to die, and three people run up to it
and start throwing jugs of oil onto it,
Who Wins?
So that is why you got 47 disagrees, and counting.
We're sensible and think beyond the tips of our noses.. most days :P

Fez1563d ago

The fire? No wait, the two who still have their jugs of oil left? The three oil-throwers for getting some exercise?

Or is it everyone since they're all nice and toasty now?

showtimefolks1563d ago

It's not Just about $5

If we pony up and pay than other publisher see that and will look for ways to tip us off more, they always say speak with your wallet so no buy for me either till I find it used

I will not support any publisher developer going out of their way to charge for stuff that should be included on the damn disk for $60 I am already paying

You want to pay more power to you but than don't complain next time when some other publisher does this

MikeyDucati11563d ago

It's pretty obvious you just read the headline and didn't read the article in its entirety.

MEsoJD1563d ago

Holding a difficulty mode hostage as preorder dlc has the be the lowest of the low. I sure as hell am not getting this game day 1. Which is a shame because I really was looking forward to it.

lizard812881562d ago (Edited 1562d ago )

Removing multiplayer, characters, modes, Menus, ect with the "Disc-Locked Content", because that is what DLC is right, not downloadable content, but disc-locked content. Code already on the disc, that you paid for, but you have to pay again to unlock it.

I really wish DLC would bleed over into other areas of the world. Buy a new car, pay $5 to use the breaks. Rent a house, pay an activation fee, because it is used. Until you do, no power for your house. Just so people can see how dumb, badly used DLC is. When DLC is done well, nobody complains, but 99.7% of the time, it is abused.
