Why would you argue in favor of the capitalists as compared to the lowly consumers. You sound like a guy who wants to pay $15 for a gallon of gas.?.

...seriously?

I'm for Activision selling a stupid map pack for whatever they want. $15 is an easily affordable luxary. Far more affordable than a tank of gas.

But maybe you were being sarcastic. I mean who would compare gaming crap and gas?

Easy now, remember no human needs gas to live so it is technoly in the same catagory as video games because we need neither for survival. And of course I was beiin some what sarcastic.

I think people do not want other companies to follow in Activision's footsteps and raise prices. Actiision makes themselves look arrogant by charging more than any other in the industry, I guess it is a luxary hen your sitting on top of the pile. Peace,bedtime.

Granted humans don't need gas per se. But we do rely on gas for transportation and it plays a vital role in our daily lives. Hypothetically, if all the gas disappeared you could imagine all the problems that would create. So no, I don't put gas and video games in the same category.

I don't care if other companies follow Activision's DLC foot steps because they still have to create a game that's great right out the box. If they don't you can expect sales to dwindle.

Activision looks arrogant? Don't you think they have the success to back up that arrogance? Those map packs sell extremely well.

Value my ass, two maps are coming out for killzone 3 for 5 bucks! and Battlefield maps are usually Free!

And if more people cared about those games prices would go up.


So obviously, GTAIV and RED DEAD REDEMPTION (games that sold very well) have BOGT and Undead Nightmare, two full campaings for 10$!. Still cheaper. That a BS post.



I don't doubt people see value in them.

Just people who have never played a PC fps.



@pugsly  first of all im not even a PC gamer(sans emulators), 2nd of all i didnt even buy this map pack, not because i think its overpriced, but because i havent played the damn game in months, it could have been five dollars. Oh and some people have better options, get over it

^^^^ i think what he is just trying to say is that what where paying for he essentially gets for free, which is not bad i think

Well these aren't free, get over it.

PC gaming is struggling because they want everything free or dirt cheap.


Blizzard and Valve called. They called you ignorant and uninformed. Minecraft just sent you a postcard, the guy was too busy to call.

Well i'd just put it this way.

TF2 on PC has like...  probably 3-4X the official maps the console version has at this point....  all free.  Some reason they won't allow the free content on the 360 version.

and as for total number of maps....

http://forums.tf2maps.net/downloads.php?do=cat&id=1


There are 2,244 maps there.  (Less when you count similiar double but still.... the point remains.)



@Kasz216  oh you dont have to tell me that, i did my research on that game, ill try it one day

@vlad  would it not be more time consuming to write a postcard than just call?



Bullshit..such pig headed statement.

A large chuck of gamers need to stop being sheep.
