Seriously the DLC stuff is getting out of hands. 5 DLC packs before the game is even out. Really!!!

this is nothing new CoD been doing it since MW2, also if you wait can get decent deal, was able get bf3 an premium for $30, less then it cost new for the game only. don't impulse buy, you get a deal. want it right now? got pay more.

Yh at least in BF you get new weapons and vehicles not just maps. Yh one of the MW2 map packs was the first and last dlc i have even gotten :p.

@Kayant so basically they have all these new weapons planned and don't put them in the final game so they can make more money off the consumer. I can understand day one dlc, because once the game goes gold they have a few months to work on new content. But this is dlc planned months possibly a year or so down the road. I'm not saying other developers don't do this. But why announce it so early.

They just lay out what all the DLC are before the game is out. it will still be a while before you can have all of them.
Kayant  +   555d ago
Yh i overacted a bit there :p Thanks for pointing that out.... But it seems to me some of this content will be probably just be unlocks for what is already available in the game.

Its worth getting for Battlefield..Rather give them my money than throwing money towards call of duty

Whats the point of a "beta" 3 weeks before the game releases? Basically this is not a Beta. Its just to hype you before the game comes out.
iRocket  +   555d ago
It's the trend to name stuff "beta" these days. It also gives them freedom to blame stuff and bugs on the "it's beta" excuse. In reality it is just a demo, meant to hype up for the game.

Its also the trend to call a game before its out, an alpha, pre alpha, after alpha, pro alpha, anti alpha

Betas are used for last minute balance tweaks and performance stuff.

The stuff they fix in the beta will usually be applied to the launch game on day one or shortly thereafter.
