$9.95 Cars DLC cost?

18 Replies 282 Views Created 18-01-2012

I would like to voice my concern about the cost of the car DLC.  $9.95 AUD is crazy.  Look at our exchange rate...we are on parity with the USD.  Why so high?  $10 AUD for 6 cars??  Sorry Sony or Poly but you lost me.  Thats just insane it really is.

$8.45 for cars and $5.60 for track.

 

Still very excessive IMO.

^ thats wrong, track appears in the store as $6.95 and the track as $9.95.

Funnily enough the track is the same price as first track pack containing Spa and Kart Space, would love to hear the justification for this one.

I cant understand why a game that claims to be a real driving simulator would charge you extra to drive a 66 Volkswagen Beetle? I mean I'm happy to pay an extra to experience virtual driving of a Lamborghini or another more devoted driving machine, but if I wanted to experience driving an ancient piece of crap, Ill put $9.95 worth of petrol in my own car and go around the block.

If they are gonna charge that sort of money, they need to make it worthwhile.

I'm presuming someone put the wrong prices on the store. <br /> I'm not buying the new DLC until it is the correct price. If the $9.95 and $6.95 are the correct prices then I'm not buying it at all.

Yep, very wrong on 2 fronts.

 

I wonder if Pretoria can shed any light here??

 

Either way, I will also wait and see what comes of it before buying.

If they do correct the prices, I'd expect yet another gift car for their mistake, since it's on their actual DLC page too:

http://eu.gran-turismo.com/au/products/gt5/dlc/

I do doubt they'll change the prices but would rather update the published pages.

Mind you, it'd be great to have an apology car special edition just for ANZ, well as long as it's not a Kart with SPL added to the name.

We'd accept a track called Bathurst as an apology rather than an existing vehicle with SPL or II added to it thanks.
