Because Koei and Bamco like money, and the DLC is an easy way to get it.

Whats worse is that the DLC is already on disk, so you are buying permission to unlock the mobile suits. Looking at the bright side, the DLC suits are not disappointing in my opinion.

Price drop doesnt seem likely. only somewhat popular games get price reductions offers now and again.

as for suits on disk, I'm not sure :/ the files are only a few MB but the dlc stages are a few KB. I'm not sure if a whole mobile suit could be fit into 5-7MB but i could be wrong.

The DLC isn't on-disc.

The MSs are essentially the equivalent of a new character in a fighting game, and those aren't that big, nor are they on-disc (usually).

The missions are small for one simple reason: They are just a data modification of existing data. They aren't actually on-disc, but the data uses the data that IS on disc for the stages. It basically just modifies a few basic files, including objectives, allies/enemies, and rewards. The bulk of the data is on the disc due to similar missions being on the disc.

If they were simply unlock keys, however, they would be 108 KB. If it's bigger than that, it's technically not an unlock key. It actually has to add some data, even if it's small. It's pretty much over-priced, but it's still technically not an unlock key.

I know the MS are not on disk cause of the size value as someone pointed out, but the pilots voice overs are. Since all the VO actors do multiple VO's: Duo and Ginganam, Amuro and Setsuna, Athrun and Tieria. I could go on but why? Again someone else pointed out the missions and explained that "popular" games get DLC discounts. I swear every review for this and previous DWG games have been written by a Gundam hater.   :/  Why can't a fan review it and give it the credit it's due. I have nothing left to do on the game but I still play, off and online.
