OXM UK: According to Bethesda's Pete Hines, Oblivion's infamous DLC pack still sees sales.
Yeah right, that is way people rate it one star mostly and the number of people is less then the other add ons.
Robbery At It's Finest
It is hardly robbery. Consumers vote with their wallets, and by purchasing the DLC people are basically telling Bethesda that horse armor is something they want. Can you really fault a developer for giving it's customers what they want? If people simply chose not to purchase the content then developers would get the message. Consumers only have themselves to blame. No one forced them to buy it. If you did not purchase the content then nothing has been taken from you and you were given nothing. If you did purchase the content then you must have felt that it was worth the price. The disagrees are just people who don't want to be accountable for their own decisions.
Don't agree... Just because I don't buy something, doesn't mean that I cannot view that product a rip-off. Robbery might have been a poor word choice from the poster above you, but this DLC was a scam - no question. For the record, I understand the stance you are taking, I just don't agree with it. The developer should be ashamed for selling 'horse armor' for $.99, when it could have just been given to people as a "thank you" for buying our game. Same with the Capcom costumes for SF4. They play on the fanfare generated by their product to milk more money out of their fans. Items like these should be unlockables in the game, not 'pay to unlock' content.
A while back Bethesda did a special where all Oblivion DLC was half off, everything except for horse armor - that was double price :)
Err from what I remember it was 400msp when it first came out...Why would anyone complain about a measly 200msp?? That is like £1.50...So yeah I am pretty sure it was 400msp.
Bethesda should be sued to death.
That's slightly ridiculous. But at the same time, it shows how much of a timeless game Oblivion was; if people are still playing it today. Hell, I wouldn't mind having a quick bit of exploration on it right now
really? ppl are still buying it? crazy...
Never under estimate the depths of human stupidity!
I bought it.. ITs SWEEET!
Did this armor improve how poorly the horses in Oblivion handled? I think I was on a horse for all of 45 seconds in that game, walked the rest of the time.
This is why complaining about dlc from any publisher right now is pointless . The moment that horse , the ace combat plane skins , and a ew of the other early dlcs were widely accepted and successful , it became a settled matter . If there was a stand to take , it was then , and many just didnt
