You still get the dlc "free" if you pre-order. I'm into business myself so as I can see your point of view, I also see EA's.

Tenklis The point is, if you're going to make a video game and plan DLC for it before the game is even released, at launch, or locked on-disc, you're denying gamers things they should get by supporting the game anyway. If you buy a game, everything that was planned for the game up to the point of release should already be a part of the game. It bothers many people when they release premium or day-one DLC because they're basically saying they'll sell you a fraction of the game. If you want the rest, you have to pay extra for something you already bought/own.

EA make money from DLC, that's the best trick they have, btw if you love the game really then who cares for money.... I will wait like robj414... (y)

Lorx Tenklis For instance, I felt nickle and dimed in BioShock Infinite, because they make you pick up stupid coins everywhere and I still never had enough to buy all of my machine gun upgrades.

At least they don't charge real money, right? That would be crazy.
Yeah, that'd just make it into Dead Space 3.

Would be an opinion based on how you feel you should be treated as a customer, and what lines you draw personally. Which is fine, but not a universal standard. Some will feel differently.

Tenklis it is not a debate of suck vs not suck. We can all agree it's a AAA release and worthy of being so. The flip-side of the coin is that it comes with a lot of baggage and extra pay gates. It makes a lot of people uneasy and wary of titles where it seems the company is more into the money, than the players. Whatever the reality of that balance may be. Day 1 DLC, Premium subscriptions, these are things that matter a lot to people who care about how they're treated as a customer.

The games are good, but frankly, I'm quite happy going back and playing other good games that don't try to nickel and dime me at every turn.

Tenklis ... and then the next time too, right? 'cuz imagine what Battlefield 5 will look like.
... So what do you think this game is going to suck or something? Because bf3 kicked ass and ive been playing it since release day. As long as they don't pump out bf5 a year from bf4's release and keep if fresh i see nothing wrong with it. Do you have a problem with the fact that there will be a bf5 one day or something? lol... I dont have to buy the day 1 dlc, But if it's worth the money i will. I have no doubt that bf4's dlc will be worth it to me, bf3's dlc was always fresh and added something new.. Unlike cod or similar games.

Or just wait for the battlefield premium for bf4, which will include the drone dlc, that's what I will be doing, I know I will get all map packs anyway so might as well get them cheapest way possible

Don't forget paying for a premium service thing after release, like BF3!
