A perfect example of seeing a headline elsewhere on the net, then posting it here as a thread without actually reading any of the subject matter.
I actually read the entire thing.
5-10 years ago all of this stuff would be unlockables.
Now you have to pay for it, either now, by purchasing ridiculously overpriced crap, or wait, until it maybe - not guaranteed, goes on sale standalone.
And even then, let's say each item goes on sale for around £1.20.
10 from the MP items, £12,
7 from the Collector/Pre-order stuff, £8.40
And then for the From Dust bull*****, another £8
ALL of this content has been finished by launch, and therefore, regardless, should be included with all editions of ME3, otherwise you buy an incomplete game, or have to pay an extra (approx.) £28.40 to get the proper full version of the game.
I do wonder how many of you laugh about micro-transaction games on Facebook, slowly - but surely, actual games are starting to fall into this trap too.
And even then, past this, this is idiot baiting, some people WILL be dumb enough to pay for some of the junk to get some of the DLC. I wish they wouldn't, but they will.
One thing you don't want to do is give pirates the moral highground, this more than does, people were already extremely annoyed with the From Dust DLC that was leaked as only being available to the CE Edition, once again giving regular purchases an incomplete game.
Thats why i dont buy games like this on day 1. I bought ME2 about 3 months after launch on ps3 and it cost me £10 with all the dlc included. I will be doing the same with ME3.
Guess that what you are still missing DLC as the Final DLC was not relased untill way after 3 months.
Arrival DLC... added more story content and a Cult Sci fi actor turned up to do the voice over...
After the leaked script (which we now know to be pretty much confirmed as true), the leaked endings which further legitimised the script, this outrageous amount of DLC and the underwhelming demo my interest in this was completely decimated. It's such a shame after the magnificent first game and very good second one.
