Why is Destiny's DLC so expensive?

I am so glad I'm not partaking in this generation.


The game is out in two months so I'm fairly sure it's 99% done. What's wrong with then working on more content after that?

This really isn't a new concept so please drop the "video game devs are ripping us of and scamming us and eating our babies" babble.

Look at BL2. Each piece of DLC was packed with content and definitely worth the price. Would you rather devs not continue to make new content for games that we love?

we have no clue what is going to be included in the expansions

As announced yesterday:

upcoming Destiny expansions "The Dark Below" and "House of Wolves" (each of which includes new Story missions, cooperative and competitive multiplayer arenas, and a "wealth" of new weapons, armor, and gear)

So in other words, you have no specifics. You don't really know how many story missions, how many arenas, or how many weapons/armor and gear. Yet you're sitting here b****** about how it costs more than BL2 expansions.

Could very well include more missions/MP maps/armor/weapons than a singular BL2 expansion, hell it could include more than 2 BL2 expansions.

Hence my point. You're making a huge issue over something you know squat all about so far. So get the f*** over it already.

A minute ago you were utterly clueless about what these expensive DLC's might be, yet at the same time you're getting your panties in a bunch over someone asking if they're worth twice as much as BL2's! Amazing...

What if it's the same size as a BL2 expansion, for twice the price? Is that good? What if other pubs raise the price of their DLC after seeing how people like yourself love this so much?

Look, we are sorry Mommy and Daddy won't buy you things, but don't blame devs for supporting their games after launch.

This too. There's far too much belly aching about DLC. This isn't already on the disc and it isn't nickel and diming you. It's a freaking expansion. They've existed since the early days of PC gaming. Get a job, learn how to save money, and then quit yur crying.

I'd advise you to save your fingers. Typing replies to Ryuu seems not to matter much. He never seems to read it.

There's a whole lot of "what ifs" to support your argument.

I assume you include the people who are convinced it's worth twice the price of BL2's expansions, even though they are clueless about what it is.

Defending it is just as silly. Nobody knows enough to presume anything.
