ive been a stark advocate AGAINST milking costumers thru overpriced dlc. it was my opinion that…
-60 dollars for a MP only title was too much
-true day 1 dlc of any type is horrible and money grabbing tactic that speaks to the lack of pride and confidence in the game you are selling
-charging 7.50 per hunter, 15 per monster and 2-6 per pallette swap (as they are in fact not re-skins but jsut color changes) is GROSSLY overpriced.
then i read this article
this article in NO WAY convinces me, a couple things such as it showing up in a VERY convenient moment given the negative feedback this game has gotten. (reeks of being paid off) is what worries me the most.
but i think we can do something that would alleviate many peoples worries. Break it down for us.
we need to know the cost of this game, why its cost so much, and how those costs justify such exorbent prices. i mean…60 bucks for a mp only game? are you doing that just cuz…you know…titanfall?
then the prices for the hunters/monsters/pallette swaps is crazy! what are you basing those prices off of? have you guys really gone that far into debt from making this game that you have to jack these prices sky high?
im against being screwed over, but i also dont want to simply be up in arms incorrectly. however i wont STOP being up in arms (ive done my small part, stopped many people from buying the game or at least informing them of whats going on before they buy it) until i can get some data on how im wrong and how your prices are justified.
I know im but one peon to a large company and asking you to “justify” anything to me probably annoys you. but dont do it just for me, do it for your fans, you have a good following with the left 4 dead game and i believe you guys are generally good people (2k i cant say much). put the minds of the few that are worried about this stuff at ease, please, i beg of you. shed some light on this.
