Well you can say goodbye to a complete game, enjoy the cut content label as dlc.

EA and M$--a match made in hell (for gamers).

Shouldn't it be, €A?

I've got an idea for getting more money from customers: make better games that have content worth its price. People will buy those in droves.

zeal0us1643d ago

EA: Making better games is too hard and requires more work.

EA: Worst games with less work and dlc with microtransaction........PROFIT !!!!

Then they wondering why they are down compared to the year before.

rainslacker1643d ago

I don't care so long as they don't cut content from the original game like they did with Mass Effect 3.

Other than that, that means some people will be paying more on average, since I think less than half of players consume DLC or MT. Unless they force that stuff into the experience, in which case I'll take my money somewhere else.

guess I'm saying I agree with CG

Selling a consumer a complete experience at 60 dollars is fine. I look at bf3 and said that was a complete game. When you release dlc such as the endgame dlc, I have no problem with that. What is the problem is situations like capcom. Where the dlc is already on the disc but locked away. The game should come to consumer s ready. Point blank simple

They can aim, but I'm really good at dodging.

I'm pretty sure your going to get $0.00 from me.

there was an article before saying they wanted to clear their bad reputation.

then they go and do this.

You never know, this could go two ways. They could be planning on giving us some impressive add ons, downloadable side stories/quest, and some nice DLC outfits that will be worth the buck.

Or they could be dicks like Capcom and lock content like characters and story levels away on the disc and make you pay for them twice.

I hope it's the first.
