    It used to be that when a game was released, it had to be whole and complete.

    In the brave new DLC world you have to pay to get the rest of it (or at least what you might call the 'finishing touches') post-launch. Is this progress?

    Isn't Bioshock 2 just a DLC for Bioshock anyway?

    They should have left this with the first game, and returned to it in a decade or so....

    So in order to keep up with everyone else in multiplayer mode you have to buy this? Thats really bad.

    The only reason they're releasing this DLC so soon is because the multiplayer mode is so utterly crap no one will be playing it in a month's time.

    DLC is a joke.

    Although we think DLC is a joke, when's free we're up for it since we've already paid for the game. Now payed-for DLC is rubbish but the fact that most people pay for it like herds, it's enough to keep this rubbish go on

    I think it's just more market appealing to pay £4.99 for two hour's worth of content, than £29.99 for 20 hours worth. As long as you don't print the 'hours per £' in really big letters on your ads.

    DLC is a good alternative to Expansions imo.
    Although not when there released weeks after.
    We should get all the current content on the game when released.

    When I was young they released additional content in patches for free or with proper add-ons.
