Fable III is the latest to jump on the DLC bandwagon. Msxbox-world explores the darker side of the game's DLC.
Huh? There's only 2 DLC right now, Free Weapons which is for people who didn't buy the game new since those free weapons, dyes, potions, etc come with every new version of the game, and a Dog outfit for you're character....which is silly since you already have a chicken suit lol. http://marketplace.xbox.com...
lot of devs jumpin on the ol cash wagon wit dlc now being in almost every game hope we as gamers avoid the rip offs n only buy dlc that adds real value to the game... still dirty to have the dlc premade esp already on the disk or made so you need to pay more to experience the full game...
Not really. The DLC is produced on a different budget, to the actual game. And it's never claimed to be in the game, you still get exactly what you paid for. It's not devalued by the DLC. What is wrong however, is what Ubisoft did with Assassins Creed 2. Ripping out campaign chapters, and selling them as DLC. Wow, I've never seen anything so low from a developer, absolutely disgusting.
YH AC2 was the biggest dlc rip off. OH and btw Lionhead studio actually sold some of fable 2's Dlc cheap to help everyone out So before anyone else shouts "RIP OFF" remember that and then be gratefull...
actually chrono i would say if they've spent time and money developing this content to sell instead of it being part of the game then they're shortchanging the buyers. we're supposed to be paying for development and production of the title when we buy it, if part of that money paid for dlc that they will then sell seperately, then we're being ripped off. anyway, that "developed separately" excuse didn't wash when capcom tried it for the new modes for resident evil 5, it's not gonna fly here either.
There is also the Collectors Edition DLC.
Yea which comes with the Collectors Edition lol not sold on the marketplace. I got the game at midnight on launch day and the only DLC ever available was those two things.
Not much of a collectors to be quite honest! And the Quest to unlock Wolfbane is meh.......i love the game BUT they could of done alot better with that quest!
... and is DLC-milking it from the get-go... ...it just means I won't be buying that game at full-price. DLC makes me spend less money on games. Not more. Games I normally would have bought full-price, as soon as the developer announces DLC-milking/scamming, the game just goes on my 'might pick it up later when it's cheaper and complete' list. I did it with Fable 2 (waited for the GOTY), I did it with Fallout 3 (GOTY), I did it with Assassin's Creed 2 (Complete Edition), etc etc etc. Just vote with your wallet and don't support DLC-milking and their developers. It's that simple.
i was shocked by the amount of dlc for fable 3, talk about ripping people off, no way am i paying for a tattoo or other lame crap that should have been on the disc.
Microsoft removed some of the DLC. So it will appear at a later date.
Of course... We can't have too much content in that disc, right Microsoft? >.>
yes because this in not done with playstaiton 3 games right?
great this topic just got turned into a console war...
Games will end up adopting the free-mmo 'micro-transaction' aproach. Heaven forbid. but does that sound so farfetched? Not to me.
Thats what happened with TF2 recently. You'd think someone at Activision would tip Kotick over the fact that the kids playing CoD would be willing to pay an extra $1 to have a fancy camo to wear for a month. x.x
dont buy dlc you consolites!! stand up for what its right kids!!! lol
People actually complain about this...seriously? DLC is part of games now ndays WTF is there to complain about? Can't expect them to just give you new stuff for FREE if you don't like then DON'T BUY IT!
Your opinion exemplifies the problem.
You know we used to get new stuff for free. It was called mods. Before they realised they could cut out mods and release half-assed dlc crap and make alot of $ from suckers like you.
It's people like you that have brought us to where we are today. When DLC first arrived we (the true gamers) refused to go that route knowing what it would lead to. But the world is full of idiots who don't have a clue and buy into the marketing ... and thus buy the DLC. Fast forward to today and look where we are, we knew it would happen, but for every person like myself who refuses to buy any DLC period there are dozens more who are dumb enough to buy it. Just wait a few more years when this gets even worse and everyone is complaining, people like you Coogi can STFU and apologize to the rest of us for ruining what was once a great thing.
Wait for the STAR WARS Force Unleashed 2 DLC to come if you want to talk about "rip off"...
This is why I don't buy game's day one anymore as I know 90% of game's that get DLC will get a GOTY version inside a year.
