Though I have PS3 version-- does anybody know wtf 440 points is in reality world?

I may get this just because I love the game so much and have about $3-4 sitting in my PSN Wallet

They are keeping maps and modes free at least.

This is the Dr Pepper DLC, it's only paid if you're too lazy to get the codes off of the internet and get it for free. This is EA's deal with Dr Pepper, they're doing it for all the new games.

Why is everyone making such a big deal out of this?

BeaArthur3134d ago $5....I'll pass. I only pay for content that is relevant to the actual experience (maps or missions). No chance I am paying for extra costumes.

Didn't they say they would have free DLC?

WTF man...

They said free maps. And that was Dice not EA. Dice said that was what they wanted but they have no control over EA.

I have BFBC2 for PS3 and the DLC seems like it will be fairly cheap for those who want it. Its not really needed though, wont change the experience of the game, so people don't have to buy it.
I like how the map packs are free cause they are something you do need, to get the most out of the game.
@ Elite Ghost: Only map pack DLC is free. Other DLC they seem to be charging for.

Ahhh thanks for clearing that up! :)

They ripped on the stimulous package for modern warfare and said they would always give away their stuff for free.

You have to remember, they say THEY would but they are controlled by EA which means if they wernt, it would be free but because EA have them by the throat you have to pay if you want it

They said they would never charge for MAP DLC.

"We don't ever want to charge for our maps and insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial when it came to keeping our community happy and playing together," DICE senior producer Patrick Bach told Xbox World 360 magazine

It's the equivalent of purchasing a singular Dr. Pepper product. =/

booni33135d ago

yea well @ least we get the maps free...and its odd because from the description you would think this is something we could get for free. i mean, come on, camuflauged weapons? soldier costumes? i guess what we're really paying for is the achievement.(and awards).
ps3 owners cant get it? what about pc?

Wardog13683134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

Ps3 owners can get it, just not yet. I've seen it in the EA Store and it says coming soon.
