I normally don't like DLC.

But if it as anywhere as good as Undead Nightmare or Episodes from Liberty City, then it will be a definite purchase.

Rockstar is one of the few that make DLC worth while!

"Furthermore, a DLC Pass can be pre-ordered starting today. What will it give you? Why, access to all future DLC, of course. The Pass goes for 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE and $29.99 on PlayStation Network and PC; more than a 35% discount, Rockstar points out.

Fancy that.

And here’s what to expect going forward:

June 2012
Local Justice Map Pack

Summer 2012
Disorganized Crime Map Pack
Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack
Hostage Negotiation Map Pack
New York Minute Co-Op Pack

Fall 2012
Painful Memories Map Pack
Trickle Down Economics Map Pack"

So I'm paying $89.99 to get the FULL Max Payne 3 experience? Sorry Rockstar, but no, just no. I'm switching my pre-order to Sleeping Dogs.

I can wait till next year for a special edition with all the dlc bundled.

Max Payne has always been about SP. This is the only Max Payne with MP and all the DLC is MP related. You're not paying $89.99 for the Full Max Payne 3 experience. You're paying $30 for FIVE map packs, a co-op pack and a new game mode.

Sleeping dogs? comparing a canceled game to Max payne?? Nobody's forcing you to buy the DLC. You should be thankful they added MP multiplayer that they actually obviously worked hard on to add replay value and not just to attract the COD crowd.

Sometimes I question your logic, LOGICOWNS...

Apocwhen1488d ago

@xPhearR3dx Max Payne 2 had Multiplayer too.

"Sleeping dogs? comparing a canceled game to Max payne??"

I'm not "comparing" anything. SD just happens to be another game that I would like to have. One that doesn't have a craploads of DLC on schedule.

"Nobody's forcing you to buy the DLC."

It's about PRINCIPLE. It's about not supporting devs who withhold the complete experience of the game to charge extra for features. This games been in development for half a decade. All this DLC could have been on disc for free.

Undead Nightmare was different. It came MONTHS after RDR and provided a whole new campaign (despite only being a few hours long). For Max Payne 3, all we are getting are maps!

ReservoirDog3161487d ago

Well, multiplayer dlc is pretty reasonable. We're in the age of dlc and you gotta expect that. It's not like it's stuff intentionally cut from the story. It's multiplayer.

Your argument towards Max Payne 3 dlc could apply to 99% of games released this gen besides Wii games. I'm sure Sleeping Dogs also has dlc too.

LOGICWINS1487d ago

Of course Sleeping Dogs has DLC, but not SEVEN DLC packs announced before the game is even out! Thats a slap in the face. By releasing five different maps, your splitting the online community.

ginsunuva1487d ago

Awesome! We can pre-order DLC PASSES now?!

RyuX191487d ago

I think the only difference between this DLC and Red Dead or GTAIV's DLC is that they announced it early.

If they didn't announce it early then you wouldn't be complaining.

These DLC packs aren't coming out for sometime. For all we know maybe they aren't even finished yet and they are releasing it a bit after their deadline.

The only thing that I see that is disappointing is that the Co-op Missions are DLC. That should be in the game.

@Apocwhen

Max Payne 2 did not have multiplayer. Maybe someone released a mod, but the game did not launch with any online multiplayer.

They even give DLC for free. Undead Nightmare is the best DLC Ive ever bought and it was cheap too. Rockstar are my favourite Devs for sure...

ape0071488d ago

this game is gonna be an awesome, infinitely fun shooting heaven

Mythicninja1488d ago

Game of the year / ultimate edition 2-3 years from now it is!

LOGICWINS1488d ago

Nah. By the time the GOTY edition for this comes out, I'll be knee deep into GTA5's multiplayer. I'll just get this used for $20 towards the end of the year to play the SP.

deletingthis346753341488d ago

Yeah, I would rather download free mods for PC instead. Suck on this one Rockstar.

BeaArthur1488d ago

I never buy online passes because I'm never sure how long I'm going to play a game for. Maybe I get bored with the MP after 2 months and then all that money goes to waste.
