"If you've been waiting for a reason to get Uncharted 2, then this might be the push you need. After a long run the DLC has been changed from paid to free on the Playstation Store. " - JPS
Sweet, never pass up free dlc.
... I feel all DLC for the game that's in that GOTY version should be offered free for those fans who bought the game day 1 for full price. It's kinda twisted how the biggest fans who support the game from day 1 are screwed over with the whole DLC-nickel-and-diming while those who wait 9 months and only pay 20-30 bucks get much more content. Better yet, I feel developers should make ALL their DLC free, cause that would mean more people would hang on to their copies instead of selling them, thus battling 2nd hand sales!
It's also unfair that I can buy Sonic 2 for 50 cents when the biggest fans who supported the game day one paid $40...
..I said it's kinda 'twisted' that developers are not REWARDING their biggest day 1 fans with free DLC to make sure they hang onto their copy of the game, but instead nickel-and-dime them for all they're worth... ... and when you are a patient guy (like I am, who refuses to buy a game day 1 if it's going to be DLC-milking), you're much better off just waiting 9 months and getting a complete release for a fraction of the price. WHICH IS GREAT! Just saying that developers might want to kinda look at how they're doing business. They say they want to battle 2nd hand sales, and what better way to do that than by making sure your fans are keeping on to their copy of the game cause after a few months there is still free DLC coming out for it!?!? It also means the lifespan of the online MP will be longer, which is another good thing.
"..I said it's kinda 'twisted' that developers are not REWARDING their biggest day 1 fans with free DLC to make sure they hang onto their copy of the game, but instead nickel-and-dime them for all they're worth..." Early adopters are already rewarded. They had the game before everyone else. The con is the invevitable GOTY edition that will release at a discount. Late adopters are rewarded. They get to enjoy the complete experience at a discount. The con is waiting 6-10 months for a GOTY edition. There are pros and cons in both scenarios. No one party gets more screwed than the other or more rewarded. For example, I plan on buying UC3's GOTY edition. I'm getting the game plus 14 DLC packs for $50...but I've missed out on 8 months of UC3 online fun and most experienced players will have the upper hand on me. Pros and cons.
I agree with you but they do it to give an incentive to people who might not buy it otherwise. All the core fans would have it already so they try to give a deal to those who are sitting on the fence or who might enjoy it but not for full price. The game also loses value the longer its out and after the launch hype dies down. Its messed up but makes sense from a buisiness perspective. Those new players will also make the mp more fun for those who already have it cause alot of people drop off after a while.
Even though I bought both Uncharted 2 and 3 day 1.. I don't mind. Im supporting studios I trust and have a good relationship with. But I understand why core fans are pissed of because it feels like we get gimped and forgotten for new players, but I just say you know what Im fine supporting dev's I love. Rocksteady, ND, Irrational and Nintendo are few examples of devs I trust. But new dev's like Lightbox are trying to build a fanbase by making all their map packs free, which I think is a great way to gain popularity. It really depends on how much a fan you are, and if you love a studio and do not mind supporting them, get the game and all dlc full price. If your not crazy on a studio wait it out for price drops so you to can choose if you like/dislike the studio.
unchated 2 9 month old?
Time erodes the value of almost everything made by mass production in order to compete with the next best thing, and on rare occasion after a time it can antique certain items to increase their value. Of course you'll be paying $60 day 1, and $20 for the first expansion day 1, and then another $20 for the next expansion day 1, but remember, you got to play them day 1, nobody spoiled any details for you on the internet, and your experience is lustrous instead of lack-luster.
gr8 thinking and they can also remove the dlc support and reduce the price for the late comers but for the hardcore fans dlc needs to be free.
Yup its better than nothing!
I kinda hate it when they do that. Sure, good, its free to those who haven't bought it... but those who bought it ages ago might think: Oh. Well.... oh.
Each situation has a price. A) You lost X bucks, but you get to enjoy it during the games lifespan and can play with friends. B) It's free, but very few people are playing and many of your friends sold their copy, are sick of playing or you try to find one of the only people still playing the game.
Keywords are *ages ago* those who buy it 2 years ago, got their money well spent as they enjoyed the DLC for 2 years, newcomers will do it now when U3 is already out, so they're lttp...
That's great news! Anyone who haven't tried out Uncharted 2 multiplayer should try it out now, it's the best time! Or buy Uncharted 3 and have fun with that aswell! :)
i wish it will be free in the uk store as well
I'm gonna get disagrees, but here I go. UC3>UC2
Question. What does that have to do with any of this?
I'm still on the fence about which one's better. Uncharted 3 did story a little better. The villain is less of a cliche than what Lazarovich was, and the backstory stuff was really nice, but the gameplay could have used more work. Uncharted 2 though, that did a lot of things right, so it's like I'm nitpicking to say that one's better than the other.
I think 3 focused more on hand to hand combat and non-combat moments. If you look at it in hindsight, Drake really only shoots something 40% of the time.
Well, they really wanted to develop the hand to hand combat, so that's what they did. It worked so well that I used it whenever I could, so depending on play style, I'd agree.
To be honest it doesn't really matter to me since I just got UC3, I can't never find any matches on there anyways.
I had a similar issue when I got Uncharted 2 about 7 months after it initially launched. It was difficult to find a full match of people...much less people who had my DLC packs.
these games are awesome but so many people waste their time on cod or bf3 to really get into a wonderful multiplayer such as uncharted...
Im glad I waited hehe
Another reason NOT to buy day one.
. .. ... .. But I saved 10 bucks.. WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?!"
@xursz LOL..... just LOL X)
My thoughts exactly. If you paid for the DLC two years ago, why are you complaining? You've had it for TWO YEARS. If you're like, really cheap, though...I guess wait two years next time. Then you'll get your free DLC. lol
Free stuff is free. :)
Try getting into an online game in Uncharted 2 though. It's a ghost town from what I've seen recently. It just sits at the matchmaking screen forever.
Yeahhhhhh ive been waiting for this moment.......for..2.... years!
In case you guys dont know MGO also unlocked all the DLC because the servers are shutting off next month.
Free in the Canadian PS Store also.
Free DLC is always good :)
Wow really? so I paid for this, and now its free? I guess it works, so now there will be more players...but its kinda crappy.
Hopefuly becomes free in all ps stores, poor old Aus missing out :(
Some folks will try to turn anything good into a bad thing.
Yup. It's like, Resistance FOM is a launch title. It's MP DLC is free for over a year now. Might as well be. Everyone else moved on to Resistance 2 and Resistance 3. More games should do that. You want lobbies, or a gold star for that BioShock 2 map pack you bought 2 years ago that you've yet to play a legit non-boosted game on? Is Stranglehold's MP DLC even free yet?
It should be free. Why would anyone want to pay for that?
considering the fact there was ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to access any of this paid content without being online, it should have been free anyway. you were basically renting it, and as soon as the servers are turned off they'll be down the drain.
I paid $20 for the Game Of Year Edition around this time last year. I bought UC3 for $30 during black friday. I disagree to the people who say UC3 is better than UC2. The 1st 11 chapters was a bore fest.
