Nick Gillham: "Holy Long John Silver, Batman! Warner have just announced the price for the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass, and it’s a rather eye opening thirty-three pounds. Let those words roll around your head for a while: Thirty-three pounds."
Don't tell me what I should or should not do. Let each make up his/her own mind.
Can't you see he's holding a gun against your head? Best do as he says
Actually, same as buying another COD every year
A fool and his money are easily parted...
its people like you why the reason game industry has gotten as greedy as it has. DLC, microtransactions, season passes etc. next they will charge for individual modes. want a campaign ? you have to pay extra, you want multiplayer ? you have to pay extra, you want co op mode ? you have to pay extra and thats after you pay full price for the game disc. the only way these greedy scum publishers will stop if we complain and stop buying their games. as consumers we have more power than we realise and sheep like you shouldn't be telling people they don't have a right to voice their dissatisfaction.
And the problem with people like you is telling people that they're sheep for buying something they like... we don't even know what all the content is so it's stupid to complain... and good luck thinking you not buying the season pass is going to make a big difference, and something like that is going to cause this huge game not to sell... lol
Hell I'm not even going to buy the game til it's at least $20 off.. same applies to DLC. It was my strategy with Shadow of Mordor, seems to have worked quite well.
The absolute worst part about this is that it seems likely at this point that we will only end up w/ 75% of a Rocksteady caliber Arkham game on disc. The fact that actual story threads & characters will be releasing so close to the game (assuming all of this content releases in the 6 month window that they announced) means that all of those great side missions from City will be pretty barren in the retail game. Seems to me that we will essentially be paying over a hundred dollars for what we purchased for almost half that price before. We will see how it all turns out, but judging by recent trends and the proximity of all of this dlc in relation to the games release, this definitely alludes to the potential of Arkham Knight not matching the quality of their prior releases unless someone forks over major cash to experience it. Even then, the resources & time spent on this "extra" content will most likely make every bit of content on offer suffer in some way. Oh well, there goes most of the hype on what was potentially one of my favorite games of the year.
Exactly, thank you...
Can't help but feel that this ridiculous pricing for 'additional' content is getting out of hand.
it has been out of hand for quite some time now, unfortunately.
they are holding too many contents to sell later as DLC. It's the reason I'm not gonna buy this game at all, at least not THIS early version. I waited for City to be on sale on Steam for 5 bucks and I think it was well worth it. I think there is no rush to play it right away.
BTW we are paying $50 when you convert the figures.
Too late , maybe next time.
The game was just a start ....
Then don't and just wait for the GOTY edition that we know's coming.
it went from... 10 to $15 15 to $25 20 to $30 30 to $40 Honestly, most dlc haven't been worth it. I hope you guys take a stand as well. I'm not buying the season pass
you mean the Arkham dlcs? Pretty much. Anyone remembers the way WB handled Catwoman in City?
I have never found many DLC offered worth it, the only one I have found worth paying for is Borderlands. I love uncharted and others and I never buy DLC, as I don't see the worth of it when it is just skins and challenge modes.
Agreed, Borderlands DLC was well worth it. Although I picked up the GOTY edition so DLC was included. I can't see myself paying for DLC as often as publishers believe. Only exceptional games get the treatment, one example I like to keep bringing up is Valkyria Chronicles.
I'll wait for the inevitable GOTY/Complete/whatevertheycall itEdition
I'm waiting on the WBALREADYMILKEDTHEGAMESOITSNOW ATREDUCEDPRICEGOTY Edition.
My money I'll spend it how I want.
You mean how THEY want!
But don't come crying about being broke afterwards.
i agree completely
I will buy the base game and pirate the DLC as always.
Opinion: I hate when someone tells me what to do with my hard earned money. However, in that case, I won't buy a season pass for $40 when I can have recent games for that price. That also mean that I'll only buy the game at launch after reading some reviews to see if content was cut in favor of the season pass.
Season pass for 40 F****ing dollars... this is one of the boldest moves by a publisher since EA. These guys must be full of s~~t to think they can charge a full game's price for a DLC pass. If I don't see DLC churned out at the very least on a monthly basis across a 6 month or more period of time... I'm going to laugh at anyone who bought this crap. Hell, it better be chunks of game added because 40 bucks is a kick in the nuts for a f***ing video game pass.
£33? You can probably buy the full game for cheaper than that on PC. Honestly, I'll happily pay that for quality plentiful content that expands on an already top quality game however blindly paying it without knowing exactly what I'm getting? No chance!
Greedy!Talk with your wallet people!Consumers united !
Just wait a year or so for the Game of the Year Edition. This is what I've been doing for around the last 4 years. The only game that doesn't release a GOTY Edition these days is Call of Duty.
£33 for a season pass is a right rip off. Batman are really good games, but the DLC has not bean that great. With a high price for a season pass i would expect heavy story addons, but with how DLC goes it will be skins and a mode that is totally useless. I have bought alot of DLC/season pass over the years and to be honest i have always been left feeling that i didnt get value for money.
I'd want catwoman to chap my door with a rubber catsuit and 12 cans of lager for 33 quid. Piss off.
The prices are getting crazy, i thought £25 for mkx was bad but £33 is well....WB you've out done yourself. I got mkx at launch as its one of my favourite series but i wont be buying any dlc till its on sale, if at all.
That's insane. That's enough for me to easily say no to buying the game in the first place. Trying to sell dlc for the price of a full game shows me that without a single doubt it's not a full package. Simply just won't buy it, more fool them. I'm happy with that decision.
Not even gonna buy this game now. It's like a super model that you go to dinner with, then she asks you for $500 at the end of the night.
I only purchase season passes for those episodic games like Game of Thrones, TWD and so on. I don't think full release games should release these $40 season passes or bigger. I understand they may be releasing some good DLC down the road, but I very rarely purchase dlc packs anyways because I never see them to be worth the price. But that's just me. If developers want to dish out $40 season passes, so be it, but I wont be buying one anytime soon.
I never understood why gamers feel that are being ripped off. Why is it acceptable to pay $25 for a blu-ray providing 2 hours of entertainment and unacceptable to pay $60 for 10 hours of gaming entertainment? blu-rays cost $12.50 / hr Games cost $6.00 / hr (for a 10 hour long game)
I don't buy passes. I ether wait, or don't get it at all.
I am not against buying DLC, nor Season Passes, but when it costs $40 freaking dollars, it's too much, it's almost like buying 2 games!I say I pass
Regardless of the value or not, this article is wrong, you do get a $10 discount on the season pass if you buy it together on the PS Store...
Just makes it that much easier to wait for a cheap GOTY edition... Hopefully this time without all the BS plastered all over it...
