That's right... a few extra maps, camo/faces, weapons and game modes will cost 25% of the full game.
no way is that worth $15.00
1200 points? Ubisoft have gone mad.
if it was on ps3 i might pay for it but sorry i got me plenty others on my platform and for the hater below buy my album dropping soon this summer (looser)
If it was on PS3 it wouldn't be out yet..haahahhaha...loser
Kingboy and his Retards:
Fanboys, the Way We Were.
I will be the first to buy it. I need a good laugh. You must be quite the artist to be spending time on gamer websites hating on a game you don't even have.
How much for just the 4 co-op maps.
I know that it sucks dishing out $15 bucks for extra DLC, but these people worked hard to make it, they should make money off it. I'd do the same thing if I was in their shoes. All this money keeps these companies producing more games which is what we all want, quality games to play. If you don't want to pay for it, don't. I on the other hand will pay for it, in hopes that it gives a better game experience, and in the hopes that in the future this company keeps on putting out quality games.
Are you a dunb A$$!!! We are getting raped for this material!!!! I bet you work for these A holes!!!!!
Since when does charging for extra content become a crime? Of course we all want "free". But the reality of it is that it takes a great deal of time and money to develop this extra content.
This download seems substantial enough to warrant a charge. It'll be clear to the real GRAW fans whether the $15 charge is worth it.
So if I think 15 dollars is a rip for 4 maps I am not a GRAW fan? 1 paid 20 for 9 halo 2 maps, and don't give me any crap about the face paint or 5 new weapons because the character options on this game suck wow I get to pick my head gear, face paint and race. GRAW is my favorite game on the 360 but I will be damned if I am going to shell out 15 dollars for 4 maps. There is a difference between being a fan of a game and being a fanboy.
this does indeed seem pricey I wouldn't pay for it although I am still on the same level I was on 3 months ago cause this game is ridiculous I spend more time babysitting troops than fighting
lol doesnt that get annoying, you set your men up, then all of a sudden the red icons start to appear from the left and to the right you proceed to take cover and open fire and all of a sudden back to back to back ohh im hit im down lol. you're the only one standing from your squad and no sooner than you repair your soldier his hit a gain and a gain and eventually you get hit and have to start over. Baby sit is right! however is still my favorite game on the 360, it's all i play. /////// oh and by the way, i really really enjoy the instant action missions, man the a.i is no joke.
No way in hell will I pay 15 bones for that!
14 new multiplayer maps, 2 new multi modes, chapter 2 of the co-op and more.... Guys common this game is sweet its worth the 15$ for next gen multiplayer!! Common guys buckle down and lets get it on!!
Seriously stop moaning like $5 doller whores.
if u dont want to/cant afford this optional dlc simple do not buy it and dont troll forums complaining about it
these comment pages are here to comment. So we can moan or rejoice all we like. Personally although it is alot of money the developers will have worked hard on this, and while we all use our 360 as leisure, they use it to earn a living.
i am sorry, but no way. ubi used to give us this stuff free. i am not saying that it should be free...but man 15.00 bucks.
Why? seriously tho if u want it you will buy it unless $15 is to much of a stretch for u do u own the game. if u do and you really want new content you will get it.
i own the game but dont enjoy or play it enough to justify paying for more content its as simple as this if u like the game enough and you can afford it buy it.
if not please dont waste bandwith with moaning
Exactly man! well said! it`s a good game and people will pay for it if they need to
If you think it is too much money, then DECIDE not to buy it.
If you think it is valuable and priced properly, then by all means do buy it.
Bottom line is this, Ubisoft could have just as easily kept the mulitplayer maps and co-op play for the invetiable GRAW2 instead of offering the chance to extend the life of a very much loved game...they are giving the gamers a choice and I am all for that.
Now, as to whether or not I personally will drop $15 for it remains to be seen - if it were $5 its a no-brainer, if it were $10 I probably wouldn't hesitate too much, but at $15 it is starting to get close to a dangerous precedent in pricing that I don't want to see reached - namely $20 "episodic content".
The world of gaming distribution is on the cusp of a shift from pre-packaged media to downlaodable content and when that does happen, the developers are salivating at the chance to dleiver games episodically (like a TV series) and be able to charge gamers for each installment. Now, if each piece of the game costs $5-10 and the total costs of the gaem remain in line with current pricing, then I am all for it. Much more convienient and will also allow games to come out sooner than their current development time.
Where I get kind of nervous is when developers and publisheers start releasing an hour or 2 horus of gameplay for $15-20 with the promise of more to follow for another $15-20. Soon the cost of a single game like GTA:SA could easily climb into the $150 range and THAT is way too much money for a single game IMO.
Bottom line = keep the DL-content reasonable and I am all for the shift, but start gouging on the pricing to inflate profits and I am not gonna play ball...
you make some good points and i understand the nervesnous but oblivion is a prime example of getting the price right with execption of the horse armour the rest of the dlc have been exellent priced and added more gametime , hopefully all dlc will follow this line but i wouldnt hold my breath
but that $15 could be put to more useful things like but a 10 sack of chronic smoke it play the game over again then go to frys electronics and steal the card and you saved 15 dollars and thats a good day
15 bucks says your a 10 yearold that has never smoked pot
I'm downloadin it now. At 725MB, it looks like it's gonna take at over an hour to get it. If you want it today, you all better hurry, cause the increased traffic is gonna slow the download to a crawl! Better yet, wait until after midnight so I can get it quicker...hehe.
The only reason all of these stupid Xbox Live Marketplace downloads are so expensive is because they know little kids like you will go out and buy them... I wouldnt spend more then $4.00 on maps and extra levels I dont care who the hell makes the game. I already spent $60.00 on the game itself and now you want me to pay $15.00 more!? HAHAHAHHAA GET THE F*** out of my face!
way too expensive!
Was that laughter or were you just tryin to cover up your tears cause you can't get Mommy to fork over the cash? I gots the coin. I gots the games. I'm lovin life.
any one that dosent have 15 dollars to spare prob dosent have a 360, i will not get it because if we buy over priced DL's they will keep trying to gouge us
This amount for extra content is simply highway robbery. Since there is no alternative (i.e. PS3 is not out yet) there is no competition to control pricing. If nobody buys the content, they WILL lower the price.
Some of the stuff on marketplace is simply testing the waters. I for one have not bought anything off of the marketplace.
But there are people that are buying off the marketplace. It's like if a Half life expansion comes out and you say you can't afford it well too bad for you because there are people that can. Same for GRAW, $15 is nothing to some people, you can spend that to just watch a movie. Spend it on the GRAW DLC and you got hours of entertainment. Thats the beauty of the marketplace, if you have the money then buy all the bells and whistles if you don't then well buy what you can afford.
I got the cash and I a have even payed the money for other content on other games but this is getting crazy. I understand I don't have to buy this but that is not the point. The point is in the last generation this same content was free. Why are we now paying money every time we turn around. I love the Xbox 360 and I am sure the PS3 will be just as bad but how much is this generation of gaming going to cost all of us? How soon will it be that the people with the most real life money will dominate the gaming world? Better cars and weapons and improvement to a game should not be made to give players an unfair advantage. Think about this people we are paying $2 or $3 for a pack of tiny digital pics that can only be displayed on a gamer card. What's next????????
This is my point. This is a litmus test to see what the ceiling for downloadable content is price wise. It has NOTHING to do with having money. It has to do with the fact that MS is encouraging this nickel and dime crap in order to lure developers. Developer X, you can get away with charging 10 dollars more for yout title, and in addition can add content (which was free on the Xbox) for up to 1/4 of of the price of the original game. Are you telling me that it has taken 1/4 of the development budget to create this extra content? HELL NO! They already got the premium for the game title to begin with.....and people wonder why piracy is so rampant!!?
If they're adding to the games worth, and you like online gaming who cares about the price.
He is right for us who have to work for our money and not have our moms buy our stuff $60 is enoph for a game but $15 F that
With the additional content we are looking at a 75.00 investment in Ghost Recon...That is almost 1/4 of the price of the 360, and almost DOUBLE the cost of an original Xbox title!!!
with the cost of the download on Xbox Live is the fact that the same content is available to the people who bought the PC version for free. I'm fine with them charging for extra content, but not when it's available on a different platform for no charge. Mind you, I'm not up on how the hosting works for the files on the XBL Marketplace, so maybe that factors in somehow. Still, I'd like to see an equal cost across all available platforms.
I don't think that people are really complaining about $15, because that is a drop in the bucket. Everybody can afford $15, but that isn't the point. You're only getting a few extra things and they're charging you a 1/4 of the original game. Does that make any sense? It sure doesn't to me. I love the game but not that much. I'm sure that they are testing the waters with that price and that will determine what they will charge for the next download if there is one. People are right about one thing though, what they will start doing is not put everything into a finished game just so they can release the rest at a later date for more profits. Some people might believe that it will come to that but it's basically happening now. Not in the form of charging at the moment but in patches. Most developers are aware of some of the problems the games have before they ship them and they ship them anyway, why because in a few weeks you'll be able to download the patch and everything will be working fine again. Now why would they do that, to keep the company shareholders happy.
I don't mind paying for extra content, but this is waaayy too much. This is just like the Oblivion Horse Armor fiasco. Us gamers should show Ubi that we aren't suckers, and not buy this extra content. $15.00 is over the top.
I am onboard for a boycott, and trust me the 15 bux is not a problem. Vote with your wallets! If you want rushed games, with less content, and high cost 'add-ons' simply purchase this update.
I for one will not endorse this...and I LOVE the game!
I see the point of some that this $15 download may be too much, considering you've already "invested" in the $60 game. However, some might also think that buying a Ferrari is extravagant. Yet, people buy em. It's all relative. The market will speak for itself. If people stay away from the $15 download, then the developers will do one or more of the following:
1. provide cheaper dlc
2. provide free dlc
3. provide no additional content
If there's a market for such content, you'll bet that such practices will continue. I would not personally spend more on extra's that I'm not interested in. However, GRAW is a favorite of mine and I don't mind spending more to extend my enjoyment.
The beauty of it is, you have a choice. You already have the game. Enjoy it. If you want more, download the sucker and I'll see you online!
I dont see how 15 bucks for 12 new maps, a new lighting feature, 2 new game modes, new weapons, new faces, and a new chapter to the co-op is a problem. Uh if you can recall halo maps cost around $6.50 and that was only for 4 maps. I didnt hear anyone complaining then. This is 12 new maps and whole bunch of other stuff. Why are you complaining?
The new multiplayer maps are just re-lit. There is nothing new to them. Wow! I get 5 new guns, and 4 new faces? Big deal. The co-op missions aren't even tied to achievemnts. PGR3 did it, why can't GRAW?
It's not 12 new maps, people... it's 4 new maps and a bunch of re-lit ones.
Also, the PC will get all of this content for free.
This is just the beginning. Companies are going to start charging for sh!t just because they can.
If u dont wont it dont buy. Come on they work hard to make and be happy its only 15 and not 40 like most expansion packs and just think of it as a small expansion pack
GRAW was hardly worth the initial $60... i would rather buy 3 XBLA games, get more play out of those than the hour it'll take to ravage that co-op mission and the new maps. bla ubisoft, bla. You're going to lose some fans with this BS... rape and pillage.
When all those cool addons for halo came out, I was all for it, once it was free that is.
One can only say something is to expensive when they know what they get for it.
It doesn't matter if it's 25% of the original price of the original game.
Why is everyone paying 20 dollars/euro's to have 2 hours watching a movie @ the boxoffice?
That's two hours of fun for 20 dollars/euro's.
With a downloadable pack like this you'll have more bang for your bucks with more hours of fun then watching a movie.
Go to six flags and tell me how much that cost. We had one in the Netherlands (came from the USA) but that was freaking expensive. Like 50 Euro's and long lines waiting. I didn't had fun waiting 1 hour to be able to have a 1 minute ride!!! As is the same in Euro Disney nearby Paris.
So expensive download?
I don't know. Depends on what it delivers. Depends on how many hours of work Ubisoft has put into it. For free? Unreasonable. You've paid for the game you already played. Not for extra content. They need to put manhours in it to produce. Those have to be paid. If they would have make it free, that would have been nice. If they price was lower, that would have been great also.
But maybe this price is just right. If you don't want to buy it, don't buy it. Stop whining. If you can't afford a beer, or on the other end of financial line a Ferrari, you just don't buy it. You are not going to cry @ the pub that you can't have a beer or crying on the floor in the showroom of a Ferraridealer because you can't pay the freaking car. PERIOD
Wow I have never heard so much whining since the Dallas Mavericks lost 4 in a row to the Heat lol.
Finally got the dlc this morning after much difficulty on the day of availability.
Initial impression...the extra maps are well worth the fifteen bones. I didn't feel ripped off by the content. The developers obviously worked hard on the new maps and the new weapons. The relit maps feel and play differently so as to actually feel like its a new map. I haven't heard a single negative comment about em after an entire day of gaming.
GRAW's entertainment value has been extended for at least a couple months. Believe me...if I felt cheated with this dlc, I would say so.
people must understand, that this is gonna continue to happen. it takes longer to develope a game.people ask why didnt they put all of the content on the dics? if they did we would probably be just getting G.R.A.W!! I for one like they new packs, it extends the life of a favorite game.people also complain , the prices werent that high on the xbox1, well... gas wasnt that high then either but now look at it!!people only see things from the comsumer standpoint, but you really need to understand the business side to.
ok the games cost 10 dollars more than they use to, but.. what game before 360 an ps3 cost 10-30 million to make,so that extra 10 dont really make up the differance!! if you were the developer an could make a few extra dollars you would to point blank!!bottom line is if you DONT wanna pay for the pack then DONT,if you dont mind getting more out of your game at a cost then DO IT!!!
Guess what I am NOT a developer. I am a consumer. Therefore I see things through the eyes of a consumer. I do not like being scammed or ripped off. If you feel good about this trend, buy away. Things will never change unless we make our opinions known. One way to do that is talk, the other is with our wallets.
