With the original dropping to $19.99 now, is the Ultimate really worth it?

That's a genuine question. I chose to just go with the $19.99 original due to the big price difference, and the fact that there really was no DLC I couldn't live without. None of them was all that exciting, imo, so I never bought any.

Also, did someone confirm *extra* DLC for the Ultimate? That's Capcom's style, not NetherRealm's. Did someone say otherwise, or is NetherRealm just releasing the Ultimate and that's it? Because if that's the case, well...unless you absolutely must have the DLC in its total entirety, I'm fine with the base game, especially considering the seriously injured online game. Heck, even if you just got the Season Pass, it's still $35, which isn't $60. Does that even add up?

I'll probably get it on the Vita once it drops below $20. I doubt it'll go PS+, since they generally only add games with a good deal of DLC to make a profit off their choice of game. Not sure why some people are insisting it'll be a PS+ title when the pattern is pretty indicative that they pick mostly DLC-heavy games for it. I don't remember the exact list, but I'm pretty sure they all had at least a little DLC available after being +'d.

If you don't care for the DLC at all then no, of course Ultimate isn't worth it.

But even if you add up *every single piece* of DLC, what does that total come to? That requires $40 of nothing but DLC. There are a lot of costumes, but I don't even think they come to $60 if you got absolutely everything.

It'll cost more than 40 bucks to buy all the DLC.

Dude, it's about $69 (serious) total for all the DLC, someone did the math in another thread here

What a punk, shoulda waited for Ultimate to drop to $19.99.

Since when is it 19.99$? It's dropped to a whopping 49.99$. The DLC alone is +33$ + 15$ for season pass.

I guess it depends on if you want the costumes or not. If you only want the characters ($25), then it isn't worth it.
