Dead Space 3 day one DLC

Bot Capacity Upgrade $4.99
Bot Personality Pack $4.99
First Contact Pack Free
Marauder Pack $4.99
Sharpshooter Pack $4.99
Tundra Recon Pack $4.99
Witness the Truth Pack $4.99
Bot Accelerator $4.99
Epic Weapon & Resource Pack $2.99
Online Pass $9.99 (already included when you buy the game)
Ultra Weapon & Resource Pack $1.99
Resource Pack $0.99

Ok all of this stuff is optional and its all basically pay to win stuff that give you items and boosts to start the game with, which you can otherwise earn playing the game.

None of it is actually even real content its all pay to win item boosts.


Wow. That's a lot of day one DLC.

EA when did you become so greedy? You ruined the last gen online passes, day one dlc, etc.

Maybe the reason Fifa 13 didn't sell well on Wii U, is because it is by far the worst and laziest "port" I've ever seen in my entire life. Somehow EA managed to churn out an INFERIOR port of Fifa 12. A game that was already horrifyingly bad to begin with. The Gamepad functions are unresponsive, and terribly executed. For example, when you take a free kick by holding up the gamepad. If the free kick is blocked by the wall, play continues, but the camera remains perfectly still in third person for a whopping five seconds. The ball will literally be out of sight for almost five seconds before you regain control. The game wasn't even tested. None of the new features were.

All they did, was take out the terrible collisions from Fifa 12, but in doing so they broke several things even more, like player responsiveness, without even adjusting that. Then they cut half the features of the game, made the servers some of the worst I've ever seen, and they added some untested Gamepad features that hardly work.

To anyone thinking they spent money on this... You're crazy. Even with just 10k copies sold they'll break even.

Or the fact that the games it's released so far haven't sold well could be the reason. Why waste the money to port it if it's going to take away from potential profits?


True but how can they expect even decent sales with what they released so far? Mass effect 3 without 1 and 2. Not a sports guy but i believe wii u madden is missing the new physics engine or something that ps3 n 360 have. Not sure about fifa. At least most wanted is coming but thats a big delay from ps360 launch dates.

Maybe they're still in a strop about the whole Origin on Wii U thing

I'm not a fan of EA's dlc policy either, but I doubt that's the real reason why EA gives Wii U the finger.

I personally can't help but wonder if the reason they don't want to support the Wii U is because they don't want the risk of being associated with Nintendo's "kiddy" image.

Most of it came true. EA didn't give the Wii madden physics. No madden 25. No Mass Effect 3 DLC. No dead space 3.
