To get all of the DLC at once, it costs about $60 for the car pack. That means you have to pay $120 if you want the whole game.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww DLC!

DeathOfTheFanBoy1898d ago

Doh! DLC is OPTIONAL!!! You get the full game at retail, you don't NEED the DLC to play the full game.

SKullDugger1897d ago (Edited 1897d ago )

But you will only get 200 cars. And you will pay for DLC of 60 more cars from Nov-22nd to March. For a total of 260 cars ???

ambientFLIER1897d ago

The "whole" game is $60.

DLC is optional and extra content. What is so hard to understand?

YodaCracker1897d ago (Edited 1897d ago )

I wish no games had DLC. I never want to feel compelled to go back after finishing them. /sarcasm

As long as a game is packed with content and does not feel bare bones like they purposely left out content to sell later as DLC, then I have no problem with it. And Forza is always packed to the brim with content of exceptional quality.

Some devs just like milking us

Volkama1897d ago

Agree, but it's more likely the publishers that want to milk us. I suspect the Devs would rather go on to a new project after completing one. I would.

Nodoze1898d ago

This appears to be the MS strategy. DLC for Forza, DLC for Ryse etc. it is ridiculous!

Naga1898d ago

Are you actually suggesting that DLC is not also the strategy of other developers throughout the industry?

Why are you singling out MS when (1) they are only responsible for the DLC strategy for Forza - not Ryse, and (2) almost every other large development studio or publisher has been using DLC packs and passes for years?

PraxxtorCruel1898d ago (Edited 1898d ago )

They single out MS because it's cool to hate on MS. When Sony does DLC it's because they want to offer 'extra content' to their loyal fanbase but when MS does, it's all about milking as much money out of consumers! DLC is DLC, don't like it then don't bloody purchase it and in the unlikelihood it's free, well thank your lucky stars.

ambientFLIER1897d ago (Edited 1897d ago )

Sony does DLC out of love and kind-heartedness and it's all brightly colored flowers in a sunny pasture. MS does DLC out of greed, corruption, and the desire to kill you, your family and even your dog.

That explains it well enough, I believe!


VENOMACR12271897d ago

Right, Microsoft is the only company creating and charging for DLC. I guess all the Battlefield and COD DLC content is Microsofts fault. I'm sure Killzone will have DLC and give it away for free because Sony, unlike Microsoft, cares about it's fan base and not about money at all


christocolus1898d ago

how does keeping a game running by releasing downlable content a bad thing? does the core game feel unfinished? i see nothing wrong with this besides its optional..either you buy it or you dont.i see nothing wrong with the model besides the xbx community inspired car models will be offered free.....i dont think its a bad idea. keep up the good work turn10.

I wouldn't have an issue with the DLC if the car roster was better. I feel like they're holding back on a lot of cars to make them DLC.

Naga1897d ago

It's important to remember that they haven't announced all of the cars yet. I'd probably hold off on judging the car roster until it's final. Just my two cents, at least.

likeaboss3021897d ago

True but it doesn't help when you're already announcing car DLC before the final car roster.

strigoi8141898d ago

then after couple of months after milking the DLC they will release the complete edition

PraxxtorCruel1898d ago

Forza 4 does not have a complete edition.

strigoi8141898d ago (Edited 1898d ago )

did i mention forza4? or any game?

Naga1898d ago (Edited 1898d ago )

PraxxtorCruel made a very apt comparison.

While you did not bring up Forza 4 or any other game, there is no reasonable basis to believe your claim that they will "milk" the DLC and then "release the complete edition".

By bringing up the most recent iteration of the series - which utilized a virtually identical DLC model to what is being discussed here - and showing that they did NOT follow the path you are suggesting here, it severely undercuts the basis for believing your claim.

Perhaps you should look to back up your own claim with some compelling evidence, thus giving us reason to believe you... rather than just criticizing others for pointing out the fact that you just made an unsubstantiated claim that borders on trolling.

TL;DR - Did you mention Forza4 or any game? No, but you should have.
