So gears 3 DLC has already gone insane before the game is even out.

In case you haven't seen the marketplace yet, the new DLC tab has been flooded by Gears 3 with weapon skins. You know, the kinda thing that you assume would just be a regular unlock earned by playing. Which raises the question: are these the skins that can be earned in game or are these unique ones? Are there any skins, in-game, that can be earned rather than paid for. But hey, you could just buy them all for $25 or more (not sure about exact price).

There's also the season pass which is, how did they put this?...a "pre-order" on future DLC that includes a whole 33% discount on said DLC. Price of season pass? Around $40 (again, don't remember exact price)

All skins in the DLC are on the disc and not unlockable in game.

Ugh, heres the same old topic whining about the same old thing.

Yes, game companies are money grubbing whores.

Gears 3 weapon packs are dumb, but there are may unlockable skins in game. The download ones are just more options I guess, you really don't have to get them and I don't plan on it.

A lot of characters and skins are unlocked during play time through achievements and such.

Who's whining? Before just automatically throwing out the term you should check if any whining is actually going on. All I did was list the facts about what happened to the marketplace and ask some question.

I did check it out. Sounds like grade A whining to me.

Seriously?

Horse armor has been around since the launch of the 360 and you people STILL WHINE LIKE LITTLE BABIES about DLC?

Yeah I called you babies. Get your head out your ass, this is what is happening with gaming, lets move on and have real discussions.


It's different 6 months or so down the line when they pretend they didn't have all the content ready to go before they released the game but when it is a blatant as now to now try to make the game $100+ on release day for extra content i refuse to ever support it.

Gears of war multi player has got to be the most over rated multi player ever as well imo.
