TVGB: "With the game not even out yet, Ubisoft may have jumped the gun a bit and announced the first piece of post-launch DLC for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier."
I think Day 1 DLC is always nothing more than a blatant rip-off. this is just another reason for not buy this game.
... whenever Day 1 DLC is announced for a game, it just means I won't be buying that game or supporting those greedy developers.
Yea kinda feel the same about it. I think day 1 DLC should already be in the game. Ah i remember the times back last gen where all the extra content didn't even cost money.
Ummm....but did you guys not read the article? This is NOT day one DLC. This is set to release July 3rd... about a month and a half after its release. THIS is not a Mass Effect 3 day one dlc situation...or locked on disc content. I see nothing wrong here. All this tells me is if I love the game there will be more support coming for it.
not day one.
they still have enough time to announce 2nd DLC pack before the game launches.
Dude, I heard it is on-disc.
Not only has ubi killed the ghost recon name (RIP GR,GRIT,GRDS) now thy are jumping on the day 1 bandwagon too? I hate this gen...
yeah ghost recon is the only ubisoft game I don't really like this gen. it's not that this gen's GR games are bad but the frist two GR games just were so much better. I want a remake of the first game :(
its not day one!!!!!!
Why do developers do day 1 DLC? When people buy a game on launch they have £40 worth of new content why would anyone need anymore? Anyway I hope this isn't DiscLockedContent if so then I'll add Ubi next to Crapcom as companies I won't support.
again..NOT day one DLC. Good God, is nobody reading anymore?
SO SICK OF THIS TREND!!!
I don't see what the problem is wth DLC. It doesn't matter if it's on Disc or not. If you want it you gotta buy it, if you don't want it then don't buy it. Don't bitch about something you don't want. EVERY game has DLC these days this is nothing new. If the DLC is priced well i have no problems. If it's on disc or not makes no difference to me this is DLC made by the game devs, you can't have it until you pay end of it. Stop fussing just don't buy the DLC if you don't want it.
Why would they put it on the disc? Because it's complete, correct? Why would they charge for something that is complete and on the disc? Greed.
@ IcemanX, I agree with you that we as gamers make it a habit of complaining about things we don't plan on buying. And to a point, i feel the same way. I usually don't buy DLC (especially launch day DLC), and that's because DLC is usually something I can live without and still enjoy whatever game it was made for. Like, LA Noire is a good example. I played through that game twice and never did I feel the urge to drop 160 MS points on a new trenchcoat for Cole Phelps or a Tommy Gun I could keep in the trunk of police cars. But When an entire Multiplayer mode, 6(SIX!?)weapons, and 6 MP maps are deliberately left out of a game so it can be sold separeatley on the same day the game comes out, i do typically get my panties in a bunch. I suppose rather than be mad at the companies we should be mad at ourself, as Day one DLC wouldn't be so popular if gamers didn't buy into it.
Your right we don't have to buy it but day one dlc for multiplayer splits the online community and day one single content should not have a price tag it should be included when we buy the game cause if it's on any market place it gets sent to ms and Sony weeks in advance for verification it could have easily been on the disk and disk locked content is even worse cause that's them telling us here this is worth x amount of $ but if you want this part you have to pay this much $ like capcom charging to 400 points to play multiplayer on resident evil 5 lol I hate this gen only Nintendo and a few other devs gave us our money's worth
its better to announce it early, not before the actual game is released lol but pretty early...it should be announced early because batman has a new dlc coming out, harleys revenge but it took so long and it was never announced that most people already completed and traded the game to gamestop...
That's complete garbage.. it's an incomplete game, plain and simple. If We buy a game we've been anticipating on it's launch date and there's day 1 DLC, usually we can skip it because it's a few weapons and skins/outfits...maybe an extra playable character or so. But THIS...THIS is a whole MP Map Pack, and MP Mode, and SIX weapons?? Bullsh*t I say I'd almost prefer they charge $70-$80 at the register, instead of this decietful bullsh*t of so called "Day 1 DLC." Ya know what I mean? Don't tell me the game costs $60 when the whole experience, that's actually written on the disc, will cost me $70-80.
Just to state this one more time... this is NOT day one DLC. Its coming out July 3rd...this game releases end of May... that is over a month out for this DLC.
what is wrong with these people, ITS NOT DAY ONE DLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! Its comes out July 3 damn!!!
Max Payne 3 wins this DLC rip off battle. First DLC will be released next month. That's 1 month or less if they release before the 15th of June. Welcome to the future. Ahhh, very near future.
Man. I would be fine with new maps but multiple guns and a game mode is ridiclious.
Ok we get it.. Doesn't mean its not freaking finished.. they probably just didn't put it on the disc so they can squat on the release to masses button for a month to make it look like they were working on it afterwards
