DICE has confirmed that Medal Of Honor will feature post-launch DLC for the multiplayer side of the game
What a perfect way to segregate the user base. Good job EA. Ya douches.
Ummm.... It's hardly like EA are the only people doing DLC now is it.
Just because it's been done before does not make it suck any less now. Too much paid DLC is not a good thing for the customer especially if it is something simple but expensive like a map pack. It encourages developers to release as limited a product as they possibly can and still get away with charging full price for and then charge the customer an additional $10 to $15 a pop for stuff that was already funded with the initial development budget. It's BS. It's a pocket lining exercise for the publishers (all of whom are money grubbing douchebags: EA. Activision, Ubi). These are the assholes who want to charge you $$ for a demo of a product they want you to buy. That would be like a car salesman charging you to test drive a car. Even those guys are not sleazy enough to do that.
or they have been doing it since BF2. its not new mate. EDIT HERE: said havent instead of "have". EA has been known for segregating the community. gamers need to make a stand against this crap, and paying for Xbox Live, or PS+, or other DLC. sadly, console gamers dont rebel with their wallets like PC gamers do. its something i wish console gamers would do more of. and no, this is not an elitist comment, but an issue PC gamers have dealt with for years before this console generation. VOTE WITH YOUR WALLETS!!! DONT LET DEVERLOPRS/PUBLISHERS MAKE YOU PAY FOR EXTRAS THAT SHOULD BE IN THE GAME FROM ITS RELEASE!!!!
No offense, but I would just rather not buy it, then have to update my PC all the time. PC users have the easy way out because they can pirate everything. Not saying you do personally, but when you vote with your "wallets" you can easily download that content for free, where we can't.
Re: PC Gamers vote with their wallets. Yeah, like the MW2 boycott that worked so well: http://www.shrani.si/f/1Y/c... LOL. I'm a PC gamer as well and you are full of shit.
@FragGen and you fail to realize that in Steam you can change the name of the game you play to whatever you want. i can show i play L4D1 and be playing VVVVVV. that isnt proof. nice try tho.
What I don't get is announcing DLC before the game is released. Now that just tells me that that DLC is just content cut from the final product and we have to pay for it.
Well i completely understand announcing the DLC before the game, having plans to MAKE the DLC in the future is okay but when its planned about what it actually is then its too far because then yah they could add it into the game.
DLC! Disc Locked Content
Yeah DLC like re-arranged maps of BC2? No thanks.
I want free DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you agree give bubbles up.
Ha, well who doesnt. But it wont happen, unless it's just rehashed maps with different gamemodes (that could of been there from the start) like Bad Company 2.
Uncharted 2 released the fort map for free.
"Uncharted 2 released the fort map for free." because that's an exclusive game to the PS3. Valve wants to put free content to TF2, like they do on the PC platform, but MS wont let them. they want to charge users to get the extra content. which is a HUGE amount of content, new weapons, maps, hats, all that crap. but MS wont let them because of the proprietary system that is 360. and Fishy is right. "FREE" content fro BFBC2 is a joke. rehashed maps for different game types. i want gaming as a "service" like Valve has done. not pay for this extra content because we dont want you to sell your game to GameStop.
It depends on how quickly the DLC is released to how annoying it is, you have to buy games nowadays with mentality that somewhere along the line there will be DLC involved. If it comes a few months after release, fair play, you'd rather have it on the disk but from a business aspect you can see why it's done. Any sort of DLC release fairly quickly after the game is seriously annoying, especially when you guarantee it could have been on the disk to start with... though, if it's only to enhance certain aspects or additional content then fair enough. It's DLC like Assassin's Creed 2 where they missed out two whole chapters of the MAIN GAME for DLC which is annoying to absolutely no end and unacceptable. EA did shoot themselves in the foot a bit though: "plans to patch the game and balance things" - isn't this the whole point of the beta to fix it before release lol.
Nothing to see here folks. Just simply one of the cons of internal storage capacity mixed with greed.
I regretted buying BC2, not because I didn't like the game per se, but because of the horrible support(if you can even call it "support") EA had given it. Calling a couple of re-arranged maps(already present on the disc) "free DLC" and charging for any content that is remotely even new is definitely not what I'd call a good support. So here's a big "F**K YOU" to EA, and also DICE for being little wimpbags.
Don't tell me.. It's going to be more of those so called "map packs"...? xD
Not sure why everyone is hating on BC2, the map packs are all free. Just buy the game new and it is now like 39 or less. EA and microsofts are the ones to blame because they want to milk money out of these games and they spread the developers really thin by releasing games too soon after one another.
Its basically two new modes and maps given right after the game is released. Its to make sure they get a cut of money from people buying used which to me seems perfectly fair since they made the game. Its not going to be the same maps/game modes that you already have like in BFBC2. Its a new map mode(I think its clean sweep - a no respawn, anti-camping game mode - and a king of the hill mode) and I think two new map(something about a cave and some other thing). They said they will be making brand new stuff later on for DLC as well but right now they just want to implement that VIP type thing again. No worries
Gamestop "Teir 1 day 1" deal... utter bs, so the kids who don't have gamesstops get fucked over as everyone else has access to stronger weapons just because they went to a different store!? Fuck that.
