I don't mind paying $10 for DLC. It's not a big deal. I spent more than that on ME2 DLC this past week alone. However, I can understand why others are upset about it.

I don't care about the cost. I just don't know why you would make someone download extra content on the same day that the game releases.

Mostly this. I take offense that I have to pay for one of the biggest pieces of lore in the game, but I would be substantially less mad if they just included it, or released it a week or 2 later.

and I'm like erayser it doesn't really bother me a whole lot. They can just take my moneys if they keep making games as good as Mass Effect. I didn't like DA2 that much hence I didn't buy their DLC for that game.

I'll still end up buying the DLC if it's not included with the CE. I'm just like that when it comes to really awesome games that I wholeheartedly enjoy.

At least I get a Robo dog for my ship with the CE...

I want that also but I can't because of my gamestop not having any collectors editions available.

It's a line I do not tolerate being crossed. Microtransactions and omitting content to later resell are things no company should be supported for doing so.

I understand your feelings, and respect you for standing for what you believe in. Everyone has their convictions, and they should stand firm on what they feel is right. As for me... I don't see it as that big of a deal... so I'll pay the $10 to play the DLC. But that isn't meant to be any disrespect to you, or others, on how you feel about it. I repect those who go with their convictions.

The PS3 Collectors is still listed for sale on the gamestop website. PC and Xbox are sold out though.

i have no problem with DLC's that cost $$$ after release, but when they release a DLC on release that has a decently large impact in the game then they are releasing an incomplete copy to the public and charging a premium for a complete game. that is just beyond terrible business. content completed on release should be original game content, not split up and offered as a DLC in a blatant money grab attempt


that being said i am still probably going to get the DLC because i have no convictions and I am a whore

EA owns Bioware.

When that sinks in, everything will make sense.

EA has got to have the highest probability of pulling **** like this. I've never played an EA game without them trying make you spend money or think about spending money.

Their history of quality control and working conditions aren't so bright either.

EA was a great little company back in the day and became this huge giant. It's still a 'good' company in terms of quality games in comparison to bad games; you have to realize what it actually developed and what it's just publishing.
But the methods of operation are more then questionable in the last few years with them not paying their staff money that was owed and having a class action brought up against them.
