And even if i was ill informed, i did mention that charging ~10 bucks for something like Vietnam was.. acceptable.

Also, quoting from same site.



Not likely that those DLCs they're focusing on will be free.
The Vietnam pack was atrocious. £10 for 3 guns and 3-4 maps? I thought for that price it might have a little single player thrown in.

Well... I paid 5 for it during an EA special, so that's probably why it didn't look so bad to me. And some of the maps turned out to be fun.

it was actually 5 maps. It also had its own vehicles for them, and weapons that for the most part were not available in the original game. Those that were the same behaved entirely different. Then it was entirely new art set, plus they had to record all new audio for vietcong and us troops, then they added all the songs for you to play, all new building that had to be designed to be destroyed also.

$15 for the pack was just fine, you fail to realize that it was quite alot of content for the price, and was large than any booster pack, such as euro force, armored fury, and northern strike. Yet it cost the same.

Some people are just to immature to think about things sometimes.

People said the same thing when it was released. There are more changes going from BC2 to Vietnam than there are going from MW2 to Black Ops. BC2:Vietnam wasn't as good as it could have been (only 5 maps), but content wise it was completely worth $15.

This will be interesting, wonder what they have up their sleeves for DLC this time. Vietnam was pretty fun, maybe something from each timeline.

This kind of stuff ruins gaming for me...

I want to buy a game, and be done with it. I'll buy an expansion if it's good, sure. Heck, I'll buy two expansions if the game is good. But all this DLC... it complicates and bogs down the point of it all: relaxing and enjoying your purchase. I don't want to constantly feel like I have to sink more money into a game which is constantly becoming outdated by newer DLC.

Another point: Simple things like the Karkand map should be free. It's complete nonsense what they're doing. I'm considering not purchasing the game at this point.
