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?

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.

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.

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

 

Taking out of context FTW.

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.

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.

DLC doesn't bother me TBF, and you don't have to buy it unless it is very appealing to me and adds life to the game or is a side quest that is really good and worth the money.

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...

This will not apply for the PS3 but if you have the PC version won't you be able to get most of the unlockable content? I'm not sure how Bioware do it but if memory serves, I was able to get all the bonus content for Fallout New Vegas, by using the console.

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.
