... another new game, another announcement that they'll be nickel-and-diming us.

This automatically means I won't be buying it at full-price.

The industry has really stooped to a new low this generation when it comes to GREED.

DarkBlood2347d ago (Edited 2347d ago )

at this point it really shouldnt be a suprise to anyone this will always happen with multiplatform games since this gen started till the day we choose to die

Afterlife2347d ago

Your not going to buy any game at full price anyway. What game doesn't have dlc?

Information Minister2347d ago

I completely agree with Yi-Long. I was on the fence about this game, but now there's no way I'll pay $60 or $70 for it.

What happened to developing the best game you possibly can, releasing it, and THEN start thinking about DLC?

Deadpool6162347d ago

This game has already been through development hell, so there's no excuse for this day 1 DLC crap to be happening. Focus on making the main game.

Getting a game should be structured like being served at a restaurant. You have you appetizer (pre-order content, poster, a art book, dvd etc.) You get the main course (the game) which should be delicious and satisfying. Afterward's you have the option of getting dessert(DLC).

You don't serve a meal with the dessert at the same time. Wait until the costumer finishes the main course. If the main course is terrible, or has bugs in it (gitches) then why would they want to stick around for dessert(DLC)?

Where's the Logic this game generation?!

*breathes for blind disagrees coming this way*

I hope this game doesn't even sell a million copies. No seriously, I hope Konami suffers some sort of loss with this one so they'll know that we don't want "lightening bolt action" dipped in MGS title.

What the hell is wrong with devs these days? Capcom killing their SF franchise with all their cross overs and annual editions. Capcom again with their Resident Evil bullshit. Square Enix milking FF and not releasing the ones gamers so eagerly want (Versus), Activision with their annual COD games and oh the list can go on and on...

We need "proper sequels" not junk and we can show the finger to these devs by not supporting these rehashed twisted half baked games with our wallets.

Game of the Year edition? Haha, nice joke. Wait, you aren't serious are you? :O

DarkBlood2347d ago

goty, complete, ultimate collection or whatever

i think you get the point sir.

Braid2347d ago

Yep, I know what you mean. But GOTY editions are a completely different story. You can't publish a game under that title unless you get some GOTY awards from some of the famous and credible gaming authorities. What you mean is a complete edition, which is possible.

DarkBlood2347d ago

oh ok well i just seem to recall a game getting the goty slapped onto its case that wasnt a goty awarded title

but with so many editions out there i kind of get lost in it lol

@ Braid

'You can't publish a game under that title unless you get some GOTY awards from some of the famous and credible gaming authorities.'

Is that a law? Please provide links backing your assertion.

Sargerus2347d ago

@Braid,then explain to me how Dead Island has a GOTY Edition?

Hey guys, we've made this awesome game with loads of characters and weapons and stuff......but, what were gonna do is break the FINISHED product up into little pieces so we can rob the SHIT out of you.
Then to top it off, well have the audacity to announce EXACTLY what were gonna do to you loyal fans.


Haha1232347d ago

This really gets me p*ssed off!! announced DLC BEFORE a game is even released, hell this game isn't even out until 2013 so this content best be on the bloody disc for free!

Megaton2347d ago

Very little can turn me off to a game more than being told they'll be parting it out for DLC before it even releases.

SageHonor2347d ago

Agreed, I was considering this game but now i wont get it day one

Ravenor2347d ago

Reading, I know it's a weird and rare skill.

“However we do have plans for some download content after the release from the game that will allow you to play maybe as a different character or some new missions.”

The games slated for Early 2013, it's not un reasonable for planning to begin on DLC.

Megaton2347d ago (Edited 2347d ago )

Your attempt at being witty was cute and all, but my point makes sense as a response to your quote. Announcing DLC plans for a game that isn't even releasing until next year. It's not a good look. Where's the disconnect for you?

Ravenor2347d ago

Sure, if they said parts of the game are being pulled out and given an extra coat of polish for a pre release DLC release. Then yeah, you're comment is right on point.

You're just making a bad assumption.

Kos-Mos2347d ago

But you people who are complaining are still buying the games bloody hypocrites. If the consumers don`t buy games with this bullcrap it will stop. Of course there are many people who don`t understand the industry, but we can at least try to make a revolution. Spread the word and fight cockroaches.

Moby-Royale2347d ago (Edited 2347d ago )


Saying "I'm not buying the game at full price/day one". Then doing that exactly what you said you would do does NOT make somebody a hypocrite.

I understand what you were attenpting to say though.

By me(us) waiting for price drops we can cut their money in half.

I'm not going to deprive myself of a gaming experience just to prove a point.

The only person I am hurting is myself.

That does NOT make me a "hypocrite" my friend.

Like another user already said and you already know: Every game does this nowadays.

What should we do? Never buy a game again?


So you wait for a price drop and send a message. It's the only productive thing we can do.
