Wow! The return of Tai, Kim, and RAAM!? More Gameplay, a new weapon set, and some more characters for multiplayer? That sounds-

1200 points?

Uhh...

Now, EvilTediz, most map packs nowadays cost 800 MS alone, in games like Halo and such. Overpriced games like COD charge over the line, but that is irrelevant. In Gears 3, the first map pack (even if disk-locked) costs 800 MS with 3 maps, but ALSO gives 3 new characters, new Horde fortifications, and 2 new weapon skins. Sounds like a deal. 1200 MS sounds justifiable, seeing as that we get a 3-hour campaign (imagine the hard work that goes into making that, the voice-acting, level design, plot, etc), 1 new weapon skin, and 6 new characters. AND the campaign is focused around RAAM and Zeta Squad. BEFORE GEARS 1, How awesome!

Plus, the DLC is free with the Season Pass. Just buy that!

OH it's a season pass deal, eh? I don't mind that, but then again I'm pretty cautious of that pass regardless. I didn't quite understand what that bit meant, it should provide a discount despite being a down payment of $30, right?

I'm quite cautious of what I spend. I know with Fallout 3, I paid 800 for additional quests and stories that came with a bunch of other bonuses like weapons and whatnot, and multiply that by 5, I paid quite a bit for what comes out to a pretty hefty portion of gameplay. But then there are some games that charge 15 dollars for five maps (COD), 10 dollars for 3 maps and another 10 for 3 game modes (Halo Wars), and 2 dollars to change the colour of your gun (Dead Space) (WHAT!?).

This provides an expanded campaign, but no new map packs. Anyway and on an aside, maps are overpriced in the market (in my opinion, but I'm sure others share the same opinion).

You know, the game's new and you're paying 60-70 (at least where I'm from) dollars for it. Throwing another 15 so soon is a tad cringing. I appreciate the work that goes into the product, but I'm also willing to be patient for the market to work in my favour.

1) Agree the price is quite... hefty.
2) Article states at the very end that it is part of the Season Pass.
3) The DLC will include new maps, but they haven't specified how many yet.
