I'm really hating dlc right now >:(
I either have to choose to wait a year and get the full game or buy it on release and get to play online.
Iroquois_Pliskin  +   1566d ago
Why? Naughty Dog might just get the DLC right. In ND we trust.

Still, ND said before that they wont do any SP DLC. However, im still curious with what they´ll come up with.

I hope above all else that they give us some Co-op Adventure DLC. Though I wasn't so fond of the co-op in UC3 (I loved it in UC2) I would still like to see it. There was a rumor a while back that ND was going to release Co-op Adventure DLC for UC2, but it never happened.

I think they are planing co-op DLC.... i think it says so on the Fortune Hunter download on the PSN store
Canary  +   1566d ago
No single-player DLC = no purchase from me.

And if they did do SP stuff, it'd have to be REALLY meaty.

There's no confirmation whatsoever that there's any DLC already on the disc.

$15? What is the Call of Duty? LOL
In Uncharted 2 you got new maps, characters and a new game mode + added trophies bundled for about $5.

Also, Naughty Dog said that there would be no single-player DLC, meaning they're giving us the whole experience and din't leave any offline content out.

Fans of the game will enjoy a good deal, while haters like you will be hating no matter what.

Id like some more Single Player Missions, even if it what was Sully or Elena doing during Drakes Adventure that would tie together the story

@ Bull5hifT

That assumes all planned DLC will be completed, tested, etc., at the same time as the game launches.

Don't know how realistic that is.

Edit: Nice stealth edit there, friend.

but i would love to see some single player DLC where the story is 3-5hrs long for 9.99

some back story would be nice

We'll see whether it's appropriate or not. I like the closed nature of the Uncharted stories.
milohighclub  +   1566d ago
They won't do single player dlc cos they would have do mocap which means they would have it before release then people would complain it wasn't on disk!

LOGICWINS  +   1566d ago
Don't understand why all of a sudden devs think that saying a game will have a TON of DLC is a good promotion tool.

THQ did it with Saints Row: The Third as well.

What makes them think that its a good thing to tell gamers that they will have to spend more money if they want more content? Your basically encouraging people to wait for the GOTY edition.
Trainz  +   1566d ago
I'm officially never buying another game until a year after its release from here on in.
Patience is a virtue XP
miyamoto  +   1566d ago
Yeah. I love UC2 to thw max but I got burned when they released the GOTY edition and the. Dual pack. so yeah I will wait fpr the unchated Trilogy edition. with all the DLCs bundled in. yeah!
DA_SHREDDER  +   1566d ago
The only game not worth waiting for is COD, not that because it's good (though imo I think its one of the best shooters out), but because the price doesn't drop until a year later, and then its still around the $50 dollar mark. Waiting a year later to save 10 bucks is worth the wait. As for every other game, like Battlefield, Resistance, Uncharted, Killzone, ect..... all are worth waiting for till they drop by at least half price. Even their dlc drops in price.

Edit: Agreed Secluded bubbles. Waitng for Skyrim is gonna be hard, but worth it in the end. You know the game is gonna get the fallout treatment, with the GOTY edition and all the dlc for around 30 bucks less than a year from now.

Some frugally minded people may think that way, folks enthusiastic about the game may love to hear of the continued support.

Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. For example, I bought Fallout 3 on release. Then I bought the GOTY Edition for $19.99 new, later down the road. $50.00 worth of DLC for $20.00. Love that cake!
Mr Tretton  +   1566d ago
This is why I'm waiting til next year for Skyrim. When I can get a GOTY version with all expansions and less bugs. I'll be playing The Witcher games til then.
SecludedBubbles  +   1566d ago
I think it's the smart thing to do but i can't wait a year for skyrim!

"Don't understand why all of a sudden devs think that saying a game will have a TON of DLC is a good promotion tool."

Because gamers nowadays are no longer gamers. Gamers are idiot marketing drones that would spend as much money as they can on a single game with little questioning of the value. These "gamers" are the new target audience for the industry. The smart consumers that actually question the value of games are now irrelevant. That is why games nowadays are linear cookie-cutter first and third person shooters that have little originality, it's all about the mass appeal and sales. It's really sad.

OR gamers are excited about a gmae they love and welcome additional content to play in the future.

It's cheap, broker, troll of gamers like you this gen that thinks everything is owed them that is so annoying. If you don't like the game or the dlc then just stay away. We have enough negative nancies and debbie downers already. Go peruse a site or thread that interest you and leave the people who care alone to enjoy spending their hard earned moeny the way they like without some internet jerk judging them.

So it's sad that millions of people enjoy something you clearly don't? I think it is more sad that "gamers" like you exist, and that you have agrees.

According to you 5 Million people who bought UC2 and the 23 million people who bought MW2 are "idiots" and "drones" because YOU and the seven people who agreed with you thinks so. LOL

because people want to play their games more with new content and not wait years for a sequel ...that makes them NOT gamers? what the hell planet do you live on dude?

uncharted doesnt need dlc nor does gears 3..but the fact that its there is icing on the cake. u dont have to buy it...but you are an idiot to call any game missing value because theyre adding to it.

go play your old games and stop bitching. you sound like a grandpa dude

Bravo! Well said! I was just thinking the same thing when I read his comment n was gonna post but you were spot on. I work hard in a job I hate and have a Passion for gaming so if I and millions of others in my position want to spend our money on something that gives us so much please why wouldn't we?

Bubbs up.

Also @ people saying there gonna wait a year to play these games that they love for the sake of 20quid, it doesn't make sense! Why do that to your self.

Except I don't take comments on Internet sites with no meaning in the real world seriously, especially comments with spelling errors like gmae. Special thanks to nycredude for the sloppy attempt at owning some random elitist prick behind a computer screen. That was somewhat entertaining.

Don't usually agree with you, but you hit the nail on the head with this one.
Ddouble  +   1566d ago

Dev's need to know when to announce DLC. Gran Turismo 5 and Marvel vs Capcom 3 were slaughtered for not having dlc in time and on the other hand people also got mad when they thought Jill and Shuma were already on the disk for Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Just say you have plans and then a month or two after the game start talking about DLC.
BakedGoods  +   1566d ago
Oh LOGIC, still harping about DLC?

If your conclusion is so pragmatic and reasonable how come you can't justify it on industry/economic grounds? Maybe because the DLC model is relevant to the gaming industry of today, just some can't come to gripes it with it.
ZBlacktt  +   1566d ago
Boy gamers of today are some spoiled brats who complain about everything. Like Dev's work for free. Like anyone has any idea all the hours that go into a project. Having dev's speak of DLC means good news. That the life of the game will go on past the game itself. Something to look forward too. If people want to be cheap and complain. Then go get a job or for many, bug your parents more.
achmetha  +   1566d ago
maybe the issue is the goty editions and not dlc itself. people who actually like a game will put forth the $ to support it.

its like buying desserts at a restaurant...u got your full course meal..if u want more get a dessert...if u dont like dessert...THAN DONT BUY IT. its for your one is forcing u to buy anything but the main event.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1566d ago
You expected a ton of extra content to be free?
Most fans of the series(or any series) won't wait for the GOTY 1+ year later if they've been waiting to get their hands on the game soon.

We already know that there will be no single-player/offline DLC, which means that Naughty Dog gave us the whole experience and didn't leave anything out.

Most people(fans) are actually excited to see what cool content they'll come up with later for MP.

MidnytRain  +   1566d ago
Me, too. Not trying to knock ND, but I've regretted buying almost every map pack I've ever bought for every game I bought it for. I usually end up not liking them because they go in a very different direction than the on-disc maps, like they were designed by a different team or something. I DID enjoy the Seige expansion though, even if it was just a variation of Survival.

I know this may be a bit off topic but the scene where Nathan Drake is wearing a green shirt and closes a book in front of Sully ins't in the game. Not only that but that scene has graphics looking even better than the pre-rendered cut-scenes in the game.

Why was it cut out and why did it look so much better? was it a a short CGI clip made just for the reveal trailer or what?

EDIT: Ok I just compared the scene where Nathan Drake is looking over the desert with his hands shading his eyes with the retail copy of the game I have to say one thing, ND must've changed something because the reveal trailer of the same scene looks so much better.

I myself have a retail copy of the game. The largest difference that I've noticed so far comparing the trailer to the game is when theyre in the bus and it does a close up of Chloe talking. Unfortunately the ingame doesnt look close to what was shown in the video. :S I'm not sure why some scenes aren't the same as the trailer.

Edit: for clarification it's when Chloe says "what are you trying to prove?"

I did a side by side comparison and I can definitely say that there's a big graphical difference, lighting and texture detail looks so much better and his hair looks flippin amazing in the trailer (although it does look pretty good in the retail copy).

The scene where it shows him wearing a green shirt in a dimly lit room with Sully closing a book isn't even in the game, not to mention that he even looks so much older in that scene.

I wish at some point ND wold clarify why the reveal trailer has better graphics and why some scenes are missing. Even the scene in desert where he walks past the toppled over burnt car isn't in the final game (from what I remember).

Although I'm going to buy U3 and its DLC (I know, what a sucker I am), it's quite a kick to the balls for a dev to tell me that they are keeping certain content out of their game that I spent $60 for. 99% of the time, devs have the content created before releasing the game but just dont include it. And then they have the audacity to publicly say that we are essentially paying full price for an unfinished product. C'MON MAN!

Mr Tretton  +   1566d ago
I don't really like DLC being talked about before the game is even released. It's like companies aren't even trying to pretend anymore, they're practically telling us 'we could have put this in your $64 game, but we're gonna leave it out and tell you to buy it a week later instead...before launch!'

Clown Horde mode + Elements from Gears 3 Horde mode and a big fort to defend yourself in = WIN

I would of liked POV DLC for single player, play as other characters when they spilt up from Drake in the game.

Like the airport in U3 gameplay demo, what did Elena do after Drake jumped onto the plane. She was in a heavely guarded landing site with a load of people intent on killing would be cool to have a story in there somewhere

EDIT: Actually I think I know what it is, they said they were going to do a Playstation character pack WITH voices this time and when someone said "Will we see Sackboy" they said maybe. I'm glad the DLC characters and Skeletons will have voices in U3

Sackboy running around could be Epic since the customization is endless and all of them will look differen;t

As long as the DLC doesn't contain content that could have shipped with the disc, it's fine.

Don't do it the way Turn 10 does it, where they ship a car pack less than a month after releasing Forza 4, or the way Ubisoft did it, where they cut out parts of the campaign and sold them as DLC later. And it was so obvious that they did that.
maniacmayhem  +   1566d ago
I'm sure that all content could be put on a blu-ray.
kaveti6616  +   1566d ago
I meant that as long as the DLC wasn't content that was completed along with the game, it's okay. Otherwise, it would mean that the content was specifically omitted so that it could be sold at a later date for additional money.
Killzoned  +   1566d ago
If it contain more singleplayer content then here's my wallet Naughter Dog!
Kaos_Vll  +   1566d ago
I'm blown away at "gamers" today. Here u have what was once a SP game only now only getting MP dlc and fans are content? I'm saddened myself. Would rather have a couple of 4 or 5 hour SP dlc with other characters that ties to the main game than money grabbing map/skin packs. Actually I'd like both, but to ignore what put u in the spotlight just seems short sighted to me.
BrianC6234  +   1566d ago
Would you be happoer to pay extra for part of the single player game? I prefer getting the whole game on the disc. No paying extra for the single player game.
KUV1977  +   1566d ago
I'd be pretty happy, if they released real sp-dlc. You know, like 3 to 6 months after the game is released and completely seperate from the main story line. Not have an sp-addon announced 2 days before release and have it in store 2 days after release for 10 bucks like it is very soon going to be for all big games.

For me it's kind of lame that my Uncharted will later sit at platinum and 45% because i will not have the mp-dlc, but at least I congratulate ND for their choice to only have 2 mp-tryout-trophies for the platinum requirement.

On a similar note i am really annoyed at the expensive Arkham City - deluxe skins. 'Deluxe' because they have extra moves and extra challenge maps, but still they are not worth their money for me but limit the achievable percentage. Not that the SP-catwoman-online-pass was bad enough already...

This dlc-thingy has somewhat gone out of hand.
PirateThom  +   1566d ago
I hope they go the same route as inFamous, a stand-alone side story down the line.
BrianC6234  +   1566d ago
Don't expect anything like that. They already said earlier all of the DLC will be for online. The single player game is done. I wouldn't mind something single player but at least they didn't do what a lot of companies do and make you pay for part of the single player game.
BrianC6234  +   1566d ago
I don't know if I'll go ballistic over the DLC. I don't care about playing online. I guess I might try it but I just don't play online much. Just give me the single player game.
robo3687  +   1566d ago
miss out on the Uncharted 3 collectors edition? want a high quality replica of drakes ring (higher quality than whats available in the collectors ed)? in sterling silver you say?

I've got you covered:
Krakn3Dfx  +   1566d ago
Apparently there's a bunch of stuff that's on the disc that you have to pay to unlock after release? Yeah, that would make me go ballistic alright...
KUV1977  +   1566d ago
Well let me guess, ND will release 4 map packs for multiplayer and 3 skin packs in the value of 45$ - that is according to their Fortune Hunter Pass - already available in the US-PSN-Store for only 25$. If that isn't a steal.
Unless they bring sp-dlc i can hardly see myself go 'balistic'. I really love the Uncharted-sp-experience but the mp is not for me.

There could be standalone DLC like inFamous's, cheaper to those with the "online pass", it would be real good.

I really regret not pre ordering this from Newegg when they had the code for the 47.99 sales price. Guess I will have to wait for a price drop. I can't spend $60 on a game. I just can't.
