It depends. Knowing what to expect in the season pass would be a bit helpful. I do believe that we will get a complete game that is justified at $60. I trust Rocksteady. People can decide to let everything come out first and then get the season pass versus getting each piece of dlc individually which would cost more. I did that when i got my X1 a few weeks ago with Sunset Overdrive. The last piece of dlc for SSO came out and I looked at if it was worth it to me, and it was so I got the season pass. Patience does wonders.

Personally, it would be too much for me. Though, if there was a LOT and I mean a LOT of content in the game and DLC then I think it would be ok.

Youre going to get new content added every week for 6 months

Yes but until they clarify what that content will be, there's no reason to assume it'll be a lot of content.

Well Destiny's expansion pass is also $40. We're still a few weeks away from the second expansion, but the first one was definitely underwhelming and NOT worth $20.. I'll need to hear what they're including before I jump to a conclusion though.

This is exactly what the gaming populous has been fearing though. $60 game, $40 season pass and you're at $100.. for a single-player game. I'm no stranger to dropping $100 on a CoD for the season pass, but I've also played each one of those until the next comes out so the return on investment is good after a year. I've yet to play any single-player game for a year.. and even Destiny got shelved at 6 months.

From what I can read it's new gear, ability to upgrade all old gear, new wave based co op mode, new story missions and strikes, new crucible maps so it seems pretty worth it for only $20. Crota was a waste of space tbh. Even though I still play it and I don't know why.

If I can buy the game for $20 which I usually do few weeks after release thanks to the power of the internet then OK. But $60 for game + $40 for season pass = HELLL NAH.

If that isn't , then what is? Should we be paying $60 for one? LOL. You can get an entire game for that price, no thanks, man. Same for $40. Rather buy a brand new Vita/3DS game than cut skins, thanks.
