Free like sonys online service

Maybe they are going to mail it out on a disc and then you play the DLC like a board game.

I hope it's still free with VIP status...

TooTall193147d ago

only the first 2 are free

... is the reason why I haven't bought the game full-price.

I hate having to buy a game, only to come home and have to pay extra to have the complete experience.

Yeah, I know the first DLC was 'free' (it's on the disc(!)), but from now on, they'll most likely milk it. :(

Such a shame. The game really looks like a lot of fun, but 50 euro is pretty much the limit as to how much I'm willing to spend on ANY game.

peeps3147d ago

yeh but for ppl like myself, i'm playing the game to death and already getting bored of the maps so i'd welcome 1 or 2 new maps every month for a few £

no1 is forcing u to buy dlc

Yi-Long3147d ago

... ofcourse, but if you want the 'complete' experience, you kinda have to.

Ironic thing is that if they would just promise in advance that all future DLC for this title would have been free, I would have bought the game at full-price on it's release-day.

Now, I MIGHT pick it up once it sells for less than 25 bucks orso, cause I have to take into account the extra costs for DLC.

you can always STFU and have the full experience that you half payed for. or pay for the full price of all the dlc and game and get the full experience.

As long as the Paid content isn't on the disk like the "free content" was, I'll be ok with it.

Still not sure how I feel about that "free" day one map pack. Seems a bit shady to me, but I understand why they did it. I dunno...

It was meant to screw the used game buyer and people who rent, people who buy a new copy just get full access to the NORMAL game thanks to the VIP code, EA never intended to give us free stuff but maybe guns or specializations dlc(or on disc) will be free to VIP players since that doesnt cost anything to make compared to maps.

xabmol3147d ago

I know that... That is why I said, "I understand why they did it."

But it still feels a bit shady to me. There has to be a better way to encourage new game sales as opposed to used. Like, say, REAL DLC?! And to charge the people who buy it used or get it from a friend just to play what is already on the disk is wrong IMHO.

It's a 50/50 to me. I can't hate 'em for it, but I don't like it either.
