Why does CoD have to be $60 base game + $15 per 4 maps, which in turn totals to about $120.

If people are willing to pay that much, thats how much they will sell it for.

hopefully one day the community will eventually wise up and stop buying it so they will lower the price to something more reasonable.

To me 5 bucks is reasonable. If they charged $10 a pop i could maybe even see myself buying them, even though it would still be somewhat of a ripoff. But at $15 i would just feel totally violated by activision, and i cant bring myself to buy them.

The DLC for BO2 is the same price on PC as it is on consoles.

CoD DLC is the most overpriced DLC there is. Nothing new.

That's like asking why do we pay $15 per pack to get 4 maps when Battlefield has $15 packs for 4 maps, new modes, new weapons, new vehicles, new challenges, and new achievements. Some devs just give more to their fans.

Sounds like a bunch of well-fare recipients here. We want more free stuff! Blah blah. I mean 15 is small price to pay even if I only get a few extra hours of fun outta the game. Still would b worth it, but that's just me.

Wrong. Sounds like a bunch of people who work hard for their money who hate getting shafted BECAUSE OF the people who get handed free government money and don't know the true value of a dollar which inflates the prices of things that we all have to pay for. Just my humble opinion.
