My thoughts are generally the same thoughts that have been echoing the blog post about the store update and the dragon age forums
What the hell were Sony/EA/Bioware smoking to make them think that people would pay £32 for a download only add on that once people have got fed up with they cant even trade in because it's just taking up 2GB on the HDD
£19.99 would have been more like it, £24.99 would have been acceptable but £31.99 is just taking the pee. Still a couple of weeks after release once it's been downloaded by all 4 die hard fans prepared to pay £32 and they realise they aren't going to get any more sales at the price, the price should plummet

Same here I thought it might be £15 - £20 but £32 is just crazy. I can buy a full game and probably pretty new game for that price so why would I pay that for an add on.
Also I don't think total time to finish the game is justification for a high price. Uncharted 2 took me about 10-12 hours to finish where as Final Fantasy will probably take me around 40 - 50 hours to finish but they're the same price on release. Final Fantasy probably cost a lot more to make than Uncharted 2 anyway as Naughty Dog already had the engine to make the game.

I have emailed Bioware complaining, since they charge us £6 more for a DL only version. It should be cheaper considering there are no extra fees for producing the manual or disc. But when the DL for XBL is £25 that just rubs salt in the wound.
Also EverythingPS has contacted Bioware about the price.
And TBH the PSN Store manager even rang EA to confirm the price because even he though it was too high. When that happens you know your ripping people off

I didn't see the point in waiting as it's gonna be a while before the price goes down.
Really enjoying it so far. I think the campanions are better in this one. King Alistair looked good, fair play to the guy.
