Freakin' ripoff, which is why I won't get them.

I got em, the "fiend" and the "shadow walker" pack.. I'm a bit ashamed to say so because i agree with most people commenting here, these costumes should be earned, not bought. Normally I wouldn't dream of paying for this kind of dlc as I absolutely hate what MS has done to dlc in general, but NG is one of my favourite games and Ruy one of my favourite video-game characters. As a true fan of the game and Ryu I felt this was one exception I was willing to make. TBH, the costumes are actually quite cool, if there is anyone out there with some points they know they're not going to spend on anything else (like I had) I can recommend it. Especially Fiend Hayabusa and shadow walker. Now if you'll excuse Fiend Hayabusa: Costume 3,4 & 5 and Shadow walker Hayabusa: Costume 1, 2 & 5 need to slice and dice.

Complete rip off. This is Microsoft using extortion to it's maximum. Reasons such as these is why Xbox 360 will never find the comfort of anyone's living room, especially Dark Sniper's.

The Rock is gonna lay the smackdown on your candy ass! The Rock is gonna go down Know Your Role Boulevard, hang that right at Jabroni Drive, and proceed to check your candy ass in at the Smackdown Hotel. Know you role and shut your mouth. If you smell... what the Rock is cookin'!

Actualy it's found comfort in 20+ million living rooms, and if I'm not mistaken thats way more homes than the PS3.

A part of me believes that there's developers working hard on new stuff for the love of their work. They would like to offer this for free so that more gamers can appreciate what they've accomplished. The other part of me feels that executive decisions turn this into a way the company can make some more money.

..ask the "other part" of you to b!tchslap the first part.

These activities are not exclusive to Microsoft as you should be well aware. There's something about this generation of consoles that has develop the idea.

I blame Halo 2 on Xbox as this seemed to be the forerunner of charged for content.

while I think 10 bucks is steep for new Halo maps, I don't think they should be free. They job is to make games and content just like some of us working for a paycheck.

If people want to buy it fine, it is their money and free to do as they chose.
