Bit gutting for the folks who PAID for this lately. Also is it worth buying the new pack? That will probably free in a few months to.

... they shouldnt have charged for it in the first place!

- Free DLC means everyone has the same content when playing online, so you dont get locked out of matches.

- It means that it gives the game a longer lifespan...

- It creates goodwill among the fanbase, and it rewards the players that are still enjoying the game...

- It might be a reason for doubters to pick up the game, now that more free content is available...

- etc.

Personally, I dont buy a game when I know it is only going to scam me for more money 2 months later, through DLC.

Example: Forza 2, and the upcoming Battlefield... and many other games where you know and/or suspect they will bring out DLC that they are gonna charge you for within a few months.

Now, if they would have announced that all the DLC would be free, I might have even bought it at full-price!
But now, I boycot those games, and either wait till their 20 bucks, or dont buy them at all and go for alternative games that are also good, and dont try to scam ya...

I am so glad I didn't pay for these maps. They are so generic and boring.

I don't know if I'll download it, I haven't even played my Halo 3 (SE) online yet.............. And I probably never will.
