Despite the introduction of the Online Pass, EA Sports continues to try and charge for boosts and now even the ability to commish multiple online dynasties.
$15 for content that is already on the disc? Up yours EA! Watch, next year your going to pop in an EA game, and as soon as you get to the "Press Start" screen. You're going to hit start and a window is going to pop up telling you to pay $10 to advance to the main menu. EA can keep their games, and blow me.
I had no idea anyone could like cheap, greedy, men blowing you, but if thats how you roll, its cool =P
bu...bu... i just gotta get my sports games year after year! /s
That is why they need some competition.
they do have competition, activision lol they're competing to see who will become the biggest assholes in current gen gaming! lol
The issue with EA needs competition is the competitors will start to follow EA's strategy. If EA can make more money, others will follow. Eventually, just about everything on the game becomes extra charge, the game disc must as well be called starter kit.
would do the same. They innovated every year with their football series. Madden is basically the same game it was in 1998 with enhanced graphics and gimmick modes.
I cant believe peoeple still play these games. I was over madden on n64. Played a few times on this gen. Nothing to keep me playing.
I thought EA is an idiot....but EA is just giving you an option if you want to unlock something that you an unlock if you played the game, so this is for people who just want more space and doesnt want to play the game...but if you played the game you would unlock this for free. EA does the same for NFS, if you want all the cars and dont want to play the game you have to pay. So play the game you get this for free :)
Man, what the hell? EA was doing good there for like 2 years 2008-2010. Free content, and quality games, please don't turn into the old EA and current Activision.
Most of the people that play EA Sports games will probably fall for it.
108KB...LOL It's funny yet sad because the same people who still...for some reason...buy EA sports games are the same ones that will buy this.
If there was a decent alternative to FIFA 10 or Tiger Woods 11, then I'd buy them instead of EA products. However the fact is, FIFA 10 is the only decent Football game on the gaming market (PES sucks as from the last few years) and Tiger Woods is the only available current gen Golf game. But to your point, I'm not retarded enough to buy stupid DLC like that. On Tiger Woods 11, there is the option to buy additional courses for the game, theres 3 or 4 different courses at 800MS Points each. That is ridiculous, these courses were available from the day I inserted my game (launch date) They could of easily added the courses to the disc, but instead they'd rather try and earn an extra few bucks. As if we don't pay enough already. Total rip!
yeah there are 4 extra courses so far for 9.99 on psn. all for the same courses that have been in tiger woods since 04
This is the future. This is not just EA. It will happen across the board...including fanboy favorites. The ONLY way to stop is to vote with your dollars. Dont be part of the problem.
Well said! Bubbles for you, this is the beginning of the end of our hobby unless we do something to take it back!
over the top, into the clouds. and onto outer space there so over the top its ridiculous if the whole industry goes to this, ill go back to playing pac-man
this is rediculas. first they get annoied with used games now charigng rediculous amounts for this kind of crap if everything that was sold used had to cut back to the orignal makers it would be stupid a well made car can go through 4 owners books upwards of 10 homes well depending on where oyu are some get sold and resold upwards of 20 times this is stupid and greedy
I got NCAA Football this year for the first time in like 5 yeas and I like the game well enough, but the DLC that they offer in game is absolutely ridiculous and it makes them seem like money grubbing whores (of course, I guess that is true). I mean, I started a dynasty and I go to the recruiting screen to do some recruiting to my school, now since I haven't played for a couple of years I went to explore what each of the different sub menus to the recruiting screen were. I was offended to see that some of these submenus are essentially, give us 5 bucks and it will be easier to recruit players to your school. Are you serious, this is legitimate DLC? It just makes EA look cheap and desperate. I can tell you this much, EA will not be getting any money from me for any of these 'in game DLC' packages. It's one thing to be actual DLC, it's another thing to offer paying EA in order to access stuff that is essentially already on the disc to make the game easier.
Just dont but their games. Dont just act like you r boycotting. Do It. Dont Buy their games. Im Not
Damn, looks like I'm going to have to skip out on Medal of Honor. It almost seems like EA is begging me not to support there games anymore with the poo poo they have been pulling lately. Oh well, looks like you have your wish faggots.
.... come on guys, when you have to pay to access this stuff and there is no other way then you can bitch and moan, but right now? you can still get this for free if you play the game (like any self respecting gamer should)
Cant wait to pay 1200 ms points for DLC (Disc locked content)in Medal of Duty:Bad Company 2. But wait, hip hop lamer announced EA as publisher of the year... Yeah real good publisher.
Oh whats funny is, you can buy cars in Need for Speed Shift, with MS points... I can buy cars with real money?????
this is goddamn ridiculous EA and Activision can go F*** themselves.
You do realize that Mass Effect 2 is published by EA right?
game informer in their april game infacer jokingly wrote, someday ea is going to mae you pay to put air in the football.
This is why respawn entertainment have done a bad choice
Time to boycott EA as well as Activision.
