EA has announced a new premium DLC pack for Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, containing brand new cars, new events, and new achievements/trophies.
Still playing Burnout Paradise.
Burnout Paradise is spellbinding game, its content is what makes you go back. NFS: Hot Pursuit will be no different. Criteron has made a job well done, more than well done actually, amazing.
Agreed.. All in all its a great game, but I think 4 packs of DLC already is a little too many. I think EA spoil these sorts of games by over producing DLC, I remember I saw so many DLC packs for the last one. Why not just put all the cars into the game in the first place? I understand its a business, but its a little unfair to expect everyone to pay for most of the DLC packs.
ah... geee.. i wonder why these cars weren't there in the first place. GT5 gave more than we needed and was blamed of putting in "extra cars".. but hey what do i know?
@ NIX That kinda what I was thinking too. Makes you wonder doesn't it.
EA GAMES: GT5 had too many free cars... they should have made them into 10 $10 DLC packages...
i think the new business trend is give access to the least content as you can when you launch and 'unlock' stage-wise as periodic DLC. i think GT5 at least should have been applauded for giving us sooo much of content but man... everyone was bickering about how it looked and how it had 'too many' cars! that's why i picked up GT5 instead of NFS... at least i know they were serious about making us happy. EA just wants our money. like literally. they announce DLCs as if they're doing some great favour to us or somethings. but hey.. what do i know?
EA is greedy as hell. Why not give more cars when you win various things in the game? Instead of offering them only with $$. Assholes. EA is no different than Activision, they demand money for any little thing.
i havent sold my burnout paradise purely because of "fun night" held by forumers on PS forums. it was great fun. I got both GT5 and NFS HP. both a great game. I spent more time on GT5 and still at around 10%!. eek.
I'm like you. Still got Burnout Paradise, its a fantastic game with loads to do in it. I got GT5 and NFS:HP, they are both great games and I play GT5 more. I'm level 13 on GT5 at moment, keep getting higher levels every day. I don't agree with this DLC. It should have been on the disc, or free. EA seems to be loving taking our money on DLC this gen.
I'm not touching this till they add support for the logitech wheels. I don't get it, the official wheel of the PS3 and there is no support.
i completely agree, its stupid considering nfs shift has support! I was all set for buying this despite having GT5 alas no support no sale.
So this game has standard and premium content but you you have to pay for the premium content. Intresting...... I do not have this game but is it like NFS SS, where you can unlock the premium cars later on in career mode?
They are trying to make extra money on this way to quickly. They should have added this into the game out of the gate. Very greedy of them to be doing this. I'll pass just on general principal.
not intrested .. giove me more events more races , expand the map maybe and then we'll talk , criterion. all you're doing is making me look back at burnout paradise more ( that was dlc management )
"plus at least twelve new events across both the cop and racer careers." how is that not more events?
good but not enough. i kinda want more than just races ...otherwise this nfs won't last half as long as burnout paradise did.
I swear I am so tired of this DLC crap, this stuff should have been opened up day 1. EA seems to enjoy this quite a bit. Take a look at Bad Company 2, that game is amazing but when I spent an aditional 10 bucks on Onslaught for an UNLOCK key? That is drawing the line, I refuse to buy any more DLC from EA if it is just Unlocks. I am worried because one of my next big purchases is going to be Deadspace 2 and I hope they do not have some Story or multiplayer stuff sitting on the side to rake in more cash, if they do I will stop buying EA products just like i've stopped buying Activision products.
I'm in the same boat as you man EA seems to be getting worse between project $10 and DLC. Dead Space 1 is one of my favorite games but Dead Space 2 I feel for one has forced multiplayer just to implement project $10. I would have bought it day one to be honest but after playing that horrible multplayer beta it just felt forced. A separate co-op story and or survival mode with friends could have been great but TDM in dead space, really?. I even picked up the tank armor and heavy damage weapon packs on DS1 because I played it so much. Hell I Platinum the game on my name and my girlfriends new account just because I felt like playing again. An she had also platinum the game on her previous we just loved it so much.
this game is soooooooooo addicting,and the online is AWSOME!bring on the DLC baby!
Can't wait! Oh and for the record this will be the Second DLC that EA have released for this game. The other two that people are refering to are Timesavers packs that unlock all cars from the start. Too many gamers these days are voicing their opinions about stuff they know nothing about!
LOL, Premium... Sounds familiar... Hmm....
This is why I won't purchase anymore EA games unless I buy them used. All they care about is milking any type of DLC possible to get as much cash as possible. Capcom is pissing me off too. DLC characters on day one of Marvel vs Capcom 3 launch? Hey Capcom, they are already on the disc. Stop with the bullshit.
