During Tokyo Game Show 2015, Konami announced several downloadable costumes for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Not three weeks have past and Konami announce dlc for the game. SMH. Let the milking begin. I wouldnt be surprised if Chapter 3 was actually cut out and will be sold as expansion.
Would not be surprised...but then again even if it does idiots will buy it anyway. "Hey Konami you've really become arseholes lately, with the way your treat Kojima and now your employees, MGSV will be the last game I ever...OOOOOO story DLC which was obviously cut....SOLD" /s
"idiots will buy it anyway." If people want it, they want it. You don't have to be childish.
How idiotic of me to buy something I'd enjoy/want. Not saying Konami is great but geez, seems weird to call names based off what someone chooses to do with their own money they earned.
I doubt most of us have even finished 30% of the game yet. It's one of the most content packed games released this gen, and on top of that the completely free online component isn't even out yet. In the other corner there's games, I mean schemes, like Destiny: The Taken King which are completely disgraceful. And you have the audacity to b*tch over some costumes after everything MGS 5 gave you in comparison?
@punctualdork I'm sorry but if people are really sick of a way a company acts, not just Konami but people like Activision and EA yet go onto call them all sorts of names only to then buy as much DLC/MT etc as they can (despite the fact if they know it's been cut or held back).....well, I'm sorry but it's idiotic How can you call a company, point out it's flaws and yet fuel the endless cycle which will lead that very same company to do the EXACT SAME THING with their next game I'm sick of people pushing that constant cycle over and over. In the end it makes peoples hypocrites.
Idiots will buy it anyway Look what bungie and activision did to destiny they gutted the game like a fish And sold a demo for 60 bucks then sold the rest has dlc I don't hear you crying about that and calling none of those people idiots now do we
Didn't they learn from Oblivion? People didn't pay for horse armour then and are unlikely to pay for it now.
@nosferatuzodd " I don't hear you crying about that and calling none of those people idiots now do we" If you haven't heard me rant about Destiny for the past...well....since it launched then I'll have to ask, where the hell have you been?
You really need to stop pretending that what you think is worthy of a purchase sets the standard for everyone. They announced optional cosmetic items, to go along with the optional coin things. Let the whining begin. Oh wait it already did.
You stil hurt over the batman dlc you bought? Which was announced before the game released? Btw WB has been doing A LOT of shady dlc stuff(cough MkX),yet since DC or MK license I didn't hear this much backlash
I would like a remove the horn DLC.
Dark Ocelet is right the rumoured 3rd act that was dropped from the game will become $20 to $30 dlc. Dang foxtrot I think you was right back when GZ came out.
I wonder if that's the fallout they had with Kojima.
I seriously doubt that. Konami will have lawsuits up the ass from fans I can tell you that.
Really you think they had a fallout over DLC costumes LMAO..... Common sense dictates more than likely it had to do with Kojima being super over budget, super over time with development(they delayed the game practically a year)after practically 5 years in development... FACT people can blow Kojima all they want 100% that both sides are at fault...
I'm no konami fan but cmon you're reaching here These days publishers announce launch day dlc
Fallout,witcher,cod,battlefiel d,batman. All guilty
That is true but its pretty bad when all this DLC has already been accessed on the PC version released theirs fragments of it in there At super I disagree with the Witcher it started with 16 weeks of free DLC I believe or something like that and then although they didn't announce DLC their expansion packs and you really can't argue for $24 you're getting too big expansion packs that are easily more content than any big retail games out there
they probably develope contents during the writing of the game , that eventually go in the dlc at a point
So wait??? You can't even announce DLC after the game comes out now??? What about the ones that announce DLC before their game is even released to the public... hmmm.... the latest offender seems to be Bethesda and Fallout 4.. but yeah... 3 weeks after MGS V is open to the world... Konami isn't allowed to announce any DLC plans... talk about double standards...
How about the ones that offer pre-orders for DLC. :) Coz it's totally gonna sell out and you have to get dat order in before it's too late!
Big difference this is cash in fandom skin packs for something that could be free. Meanwhile Fallout has a long history of worthwhile DLC and the season pass will actually cover all future content at a decent price as well. GTA and Witcher are great examples of why this is stupid content that should be free.
People are going to bitch about DLC no matter what the time frame is.
Well at least we know now why Quiet was practically naked, her clothing was DLC!!!
wait, i thought Kojima and team were out...how is this being created? Of course, cause it is stripped from the game to begin with.
By that logic they've already patched the game fully and are slowly leaking it. someone is still fiddling with content, right? Skeleton crews stay on for games until they announce the end of support
This DLC reminds me of the Fable "horse armor" DLC that caused a stir years back... Seems like a rip off unless it's free content... Big boss is ready able to wear green/black tiger stripe fatigues, as well as the ground zeroes sneaking suit and the solid snake black/grey sneaking suit. I don't need a tuxedo nor horse outfits...
I believe you're thinking about the Oblivion horse-armour DLC.
Im going to give them every cent in my pocket just because your comment
Haha what a sheep
Fallout 4 announces dlc before release, Witcher 3 announces dlc before release - no problem MGSV announces dlc after release - Konami is bad
Skin packs that could be free, but no Konami has to cash in on the MGS3 fandom. Fallout 4s DLC is about much more than cash in skin packs.
better then announcing the dlc 6 months before the game even drops like with every other game
Fallout 4 announced it before the games even out. Nobody cared because Bethesda.
All games get DLC pretty quickly these days, so this is by no means blasphemous. I think it's a waste of money for this stuff personally, but at least it's not a 40 dollar season pass or running on a Destiny model (2 "expansions" followed by a legitimate expansion combined with a rerelease).
Yeah, but it's some stupid skins. Who cares?? It's trivial. Doesn't add to the game at all. Now, if it was the announcement of the "rumored" chapter 3 to the game, then we the players have every right to be pissed. But a couple of skins for snake and D-horse, who cares ya know.
All this DLC stuff would have crashed and burned shortly after it began had people not bought it. But people did buy it and they continue to buy it so it's gonna keep getting worse and worse. They're gonna keep pushing it further and further until they discover what can't work and so far it's appearing that there's no ceiling. Lots of criticism, sure. But they don't care about that. Only lack of sales will curtail it.
Are you guys dense? Most games announce DLC before the game came out. Holy hell some of you guys are really butthurt over a great game. You make entirely no goddamn sense. Especially foxtrot
i wont buy it if it is not produced and directed by Hideo Kojima.
Well at least it's only cosmetics so far. Nothing I'll be buying.
The hypocrisy is hilarious with this. People are bitching left and right because of what happened with Kojima, and don't get me wrong, I'm upset about that too. But when other big name developers do THIS EXACT SAME THING, and in some cases announce the DLC/Expansion packs before the games are released (Looking at most recently The Witcher 3) no one bats an eye, and even loves them for it. Again, I'm just as upset as everyone else over the way Konami handled the whole situation, and I can't see a future of MGS without Kojima. ALSO that The Witchers DLC is slightly different in that it was free, however, they had DLC the next week, and everyone knew it would months before the game came out.
Calm down, it's just costumes, does it really hurt that much to have optional costumes in a video game? If the price is cheap, then its not a big deal, but if they're $3 each costume (or more!) then its total crap. I would have preferred for these to be in the game originally, but companies want to milk us for all we're worth these days.
You have said it yourself mate, you would have preferred them to be in the game. They should have been in the game or they could simply given it to us for free just like CDProjeckt.
Not surprised. Only thing i want would be the boss' outfit. Odds are id have to buy the ten dollar (assuming) pack as a whole. Lol horse armor
Boss and EVA costumes are for Quiet only :(
Oh they ARE for her? I could have sworn they were for female soldiers. Hmmm...
You're wanting to see Ocelot in EVA's uniform, aren't you?
Isujester man bubble for funny xD
Nope! They are for female playable characters.
I don't believe you, Giru017.
Not sure why I'm getting all the disagrees. They showed off the costumes for Snake and the other costumes were for D-Horse and Quiet. But sure, keep disagreeing...
$10 for digital outfits for fictional characters ... and you might buy it. Just wow.
Fanboyism knows no bounds
Where did you get that price? The article specifically states; "No Pricing or Launch dates have been announced." @SuperBlunt, Fanboyism false information without any facts knows no bounds.
I want the Tux for Big Boss and the EVA suit for Quiet!
You can already get the Eva suit for Quiet Edit: Wait that was Sniper Wolf, my bad.
Nope not gonna purchase this . I don't even use most of the ground zeroes costums yet , and even if i didnt ... not going to pay any dlc and bonus for MGSV
lol @ Konami LITERALLY doing Horse Armor... oh how the mighty have fallen.
Theres already bourse armour in the game. So it's just skins for said bourse armour. Not needed in any way so why complain
It's just people trying to find things to bitch about because of the whole Kojima/Konami situation. They will complain about anything. Even, and especially unwarranted things such as this.
I am enjoying this game but it gets so repetitive, i honestly don't think it deserves 10's but that is just my opinion.
every game is repetitive in its own way, witcher 3 with its fetch quests, batman ak with its same enemies encounters etc, MGSV is repetitive if you make it repetitive, their so many weapons and tactics to use in all the missions that i still find new ways to do missions
Still didn't stop reviews from bashing one game for being repetitive yet ignoring it in tpp. Also the same can said about every other repetitive game, there are so many ways to approach a mission, it's up to the players to dictate how they approach it, just like in tpp.
Witcher 3 fetch quests? You mean DA:I?
It's not even that repetitive if when tired you just do the main missions instead .
Can some show me one game that is not repetitive, where you don't do the same thing 100,000 over and over through the missions or in the map or stages. This is a lazy cop out response, if it gets repetitive play another game, very simple.
It got 10s because of Konami's crappy boot camp
Remember the days when we all couldnt wait for MGS 5 to release??? Talking among each other on how this game is gonna be Konjima's curtain call, his magnum opus? Yeah, I miss those days too...
I dont. I finally have the game and im far from disappointed
