Making games publishers go back to the metaphorical drawing board with their experimental pricing schemes so that consumers can gain something from the bargain is the best solution.

If Namco has learned from their lessons and included more built-in content, less bugs, better DLC plans, than I and many others will gladly buy their game and commit to their services. Until than, this is the way it should be.

Namco pulled off a sleazy move by releasing Ridge Racer with so little content. I hope they learnt their lesson because what they did was unacceptable.

Seriously no one wants to buy a game with barely any content and then be forced to buy a bunch of DLC in order to have the full experience.

what'd expect with 5 tracks?

knifefight2418d ago

3 tracks actually.
5 cars.

Either way, laughable amount of content.

Good, Awful game with no content doesn't deserve any sales when there are some cracking launch titles out there
