Unless you didn't think MGS4 was worth every penny.

They could've sold it as a different game with everything included, but part of it came with MGS4 for people to try out and see if they like it.

You don't have to pay if you don't like the game or don't think it's worth it then.

this honestly isnt that bad... you got an awesome game. with a starter pack for online. So basically i dont mind paying for this aslong as this is the only one ill ever have to buy.

at least they're giving us more then what COD4 did for 10 dollars... And no one really complained about that expansion's price...

What were there like 4 maps? I would not pay for the game by itself unless it was around $20.00. They should have included this "expansion" with the original game. If not it at least shouldn't cost that much money. Its only been a month since the games release and now they want an extra $12-15. I'll pass till its free or significantly reduced in price.

You can use the reward points but you cannot earn the points unless you buy the expansion

Just as it was getting slightly dry, time to rack up some reward points.
