Hope you enjoy!
DLC as soon as a game is released is just wrong. I'm voting with my wallet on this one, I was going to buy SC4 but now I am not going to. With this example I can only see much more stupid tax in the future, I'm getting real tired of the constant barrage of bad DLC. There are some good examples such as Rock Band, and actual Games but this is enough for me.
I'd have to agreee it seems a little cheesy this close to launch.
Though with so much content stuffed into SC IV, it doesn't seem like that big of an issue. It's like a drop of extra content in the sea of customization you already get with the game.
Just wait two weeks later and Yoda will be out for PS3 and Vader for 360.
Yeah, I'm like "whatever" on the music, but the equipment pack...That is in the game already, yes? Otherwise people who didn't buy it couldn't see it on your character, right? So why tweezer people for an extra buck-fiddy? Just make it unlockable, or <gasp> already part of the customization options.
I mean, the parts might be OMG AWESOME, for all I know, but another purchase for people who JUST bought your game?
Disclaimer. I have neither the game, nor the console to play it on. Feh! No, wait...Fie upon thee, good sirrah!
The DLC parts are not in the game, it seems. There's a 3.5mb download when you buy it. My guess is that people who don't have the pack will see generic parts in place of them when you play online.
