Re: It would cost you £550 to get all of ME3's Day 1 DLC

Over rated game got board playing the last two (KOTOR FTW)

 

But i bet they are onto a money maker looks like EA will take the rip off crown back from Activision when this comes,

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Re: It would cost you £550 to get all of ME3's Day 1 DLC

In fairness...

 

The purpose of this mathleticism was to collate all the disparate bits of DLC, pre-order bonus, unlocks and whatnot available for the upcoming marketing monolith that is Mass Effect 3

 

It must, however, be pointed out that much of that horror-price stems from having to buy bonus code-sporting hardware such as special gamepads, keyboards and headsets, or Mass Effect 3 merch such as multiple action figures and iPhone cases.

 

So, while I agree that day 1 DLC is a horrible thing (especially when it contains narrative that pertains to the main story) and that content developed prior to release should, as a general rule, be included on the disc, I don't think totting up the price of every single piece of Mass Effect 3 related tat is the way to show it.

Developers would become very upset if everyone waited for goty, gold or komplete editions of games rather than buy them on release,saving the gamer lots of cash and costing the developers fortunes, a trend that i bet that the developers hope gamers dont adapt too.With their Dlc tactics and releasing games at launch with flaws that can take months to patch and correct the developers should hope gamers dont wise up.

So, most of it is nothing to do with DLC.

 

Taking out of context FTW.

Re: It would cost you £550 to get all of ME3's Day 1 DLC

most of it is models and rubbish. day 1 dlc is stupid but personally it doesn't affect me yet as I haven't bought any dlc and not planning to in the near future.

I loved ME2 and will buy 3 on release or shortly after though. Why are the 2 games I want very soon developed or published by EA?

With a sensational title like that OP, you'd make a bloody good journalism.

The only DLC which could even be considered DLC is the From Ashes one. And that's $10.

You would not buy a $140 keyboard with Collector Assault Rifle unlock DLC/Powerup just for the Collector Assault Rifle unlock DLC/Powerup, now would you?

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.
