Thanks guys for supporting the developers when they take any marketing approach. DLC is the way of the future, paying for content that's already on the disc because the developers want extra money? I think it's a win win. Developers/ Publishers get more of a profit and consumers get, well... ah yeah!

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

Its a practice that I loathe. Which is why i never pre-order or get season passes. Devs are getting pushed to meet deadlines by publishers all too often now days and in the end its the gamer that gets a half made and sometimes broken game. Use your head and vote with your wallet.

I just don't buy 99.9% of DLC. It's mostly a ripoff anyways.

That's a pretty good point, it has become more of a money making scheme these days instead of just making a product, that's why we got games like BF4 that were broken.

Yeah right. Look the new trend of digital download only game like Killer Instinct died with only 1 Season & the developer jumped ship. It is like the game will die as an incomplete game. It is why I will only buy physical media game instead of DL or DLC.

How does this make sense? This DLC trend has really only taken off during the 360/PS3 era, so if you're new you gaming you would be used to this kind of gouging practice as opposed to the previous generations when DLC didn't exist.

You are not forced to buy it

Did the developers put a gun on your head to buy any DLC

Stop being poor so you will have no problems enjoying this amazing hobby

You must one of those guys that buy every Call of Duty map pack. They only make those map packs because they know gullible people will buy them.
