I don't want to constantly feel like I have to sink more money into a game which is constantly becoming outdated by newer DLC.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.

Who says the DLC will cost any money?
If enough people actually voice their opinion that they will not purchase they may just release them for free. DLC might just mean maps as well which BC2 had free ones.
I honestly don't like DLC at all. I think it's a terrible scam and I don't particularly like people buying it so willingly. I own Modern Warfare 2 (against my better judgement. POS is so broken I can't ever get online top play, but even if I could...) and I have outright refused to buy ANY DLC for it and remain steadfast in that action. I will not pay Â£11 for some maps, nor will I pay half that. I utterly refuse. Not worth the money. They were better off having a big company sponsor the map packs for the PC (or even the consoles) and let those companies get some air space than charging stupid amounts of money for meagre maps.
I'll be buying Battlefield 3, and I'll even pre-order it so I get that KArkand pack for free. But that still doens't stop me being mega pissed at the fact that this game, one I've told all my filthy console gaming peasant friends about ad nauseum, is going to include day one DLC and additional paid-for DLC.
I convinced my friend to buy BC2 for the PS3, and he did, however he picked it up preowned and was hassled about a VIP code every time he played the game. I was so ashamed of myself, pressuring him into getting a game only to figure out it's been nerfed by the anti-preowned initiative started by greedy publishers.
Oh and here's a little image for all you people who harp and cry that games don't cost enough and we should "support the developers" (little known fact that actually, you're supporting the publisher nine times out of ten)
Games out gross movies and have been doing so for at least 5 years (iirc) and yet publishers have gotten gamers to think games need to cost more? Pfft.Edited by Viridian - 6/12/11 at 3:34am
