    It's the best way to beat the crap out of legitimate customers, who mast have a drawer full of add-on discs, download the stuff from internet, which implies fast connection,.. and so on. First you buy and then you must take a day off to GLUE all the pieces together.

    Dude, stop whining like a girl, its free, geez, what a moron. Some people are never happy. No one is forcing you to Dl it. Some sensitive nancies a lot of gamers are.

    ok so its free, but lets face it like a lot of these DLC packs it feels rather a lot like a section of the game cut out during development rather than working on any actual new content. its free so its not a problem, but a lot of companies are cashing in on very similar stuff (horse armour anyone) FO3 in particular felt like it had bits of DLC sliced off and then sold to the highest bidder as new content.

    Very nice to hear and I think a good idea but what exactly stops the pirates from getting the DLC?

    Sounds very promising to me.. I just hope they don't have the same copy protection scheme that Mass Effect used...

    They only have the disc check for Dragon Age, thank God. I only have 2 installations left on my Mass Effect :(

    In terms of DLC... I really don't see how this will effect piracy at all, working under the assumption that pirates can get any content to work. My mate pirated Mass Effect and managed to get the DLC working for that just fine.

    In NZ, the deluxe edition is $120NZ compared to the standard's $90NZ. It comes with a 3 bonus items (+ 1 more when preordered), a steel case, making of/bonus dvd, cloth map, and that extra DLC. All up I'm happy with paying the extra $30 for that, I just hope the DLC advertised doesn't take a few months to come out after I've already played through the game. Mass Effect box said "includes free additional content" which was bending the truth to put it nicely.

    Something being in existence = piracy.

    The fact that it costs something at all is only 1/4 of the total equation.
