1200 points is alot, are they likely to ever come down in price or maybe become free like the GOW achievements did?

I believe they were 2400 at one point, so it remains to be seen how far it'll continue to drop.

It had better come way the hell down. The price for this is outrageous, especially considering how terrible and dead the multiplayer is. I want the 1250 from this but not about to spend that kind of money for 250 extra achievement points.

It was never 2400. It was and always will be 1200.

I'd like to see it reduced in price - there's just not enough multiplayer games going on for me to justify the price of a MP heavy expansion pack.

I tried to find the multiplayer as well, I got one short lived game and never again. Even Blazing Angels 2 is more active online.

Nevermind, I got 1250/1250 :-).

I won't get this until the price drops. If it never drops, I'll always have 1000.

This and Tomb Raider Legend are both ridiculous.

I really do hope the price comes down because at the minute its redicolous
who would pay 1200 its mad

I wish they would bring the price down as 1200 is way to much. I think it should be about 400 personaly. Not many people play stranglehold, so expecting people to pay 1200 is stupid.

I think its unlikely it will come down I dont think they are really paying attention to this game any more

since they are not paying attention to it they may as well make it free, would make more people play it, for a week anyway lol

1200 points ($15) is more than I just paid for the retail game on ebay. Hah! I'll wait for 400 points or free.

Same here, I snagged the game for $13 (counts shipping) on eBay. I'm not paying $15 for any type of expansion. That's beyond crazy. That's just stupid.

I agree that 1200 points, is a rip off. No-one plays the game anyways, even if they dropped the price alot more people would play the game, but only to get the achievements then it would be dead again

They've never lowered the price for DLC for other games. I don't see this being any different. It's grossly overpriced --- but they never lowered the price of the horse armor for Oblivion, either. Not big fans of price drops, apparently.

That's true - but there have been instances of map packs going free after a time period - puts a price reduction in the realms of possibility...

I hope - damn my optimism.

$15 seems like a perfectly reasonable price to pay to enable the coveted crotch shot ch33v0.















Oh wait, no it isn't. :p

Wow, so now you gotta pay if you want more achievements? MS has enough money already.

akuzed

You do need to pay but the achievements are v easy from the DLC.

Just whether you want to pay out for them really. I only go it because a friend had it.

i had the game for 2 months and sold it only ever played 1 online match got 2 online achievements 1200ms points is easy because my friends dad works at microsoft and he bagged me 2 4000 ms point cards

I'm thinking that the DLC might fall at somepoint but only for Deal of the Week, be lucky if it even makes it there.

I don't think it's expensive at all. Seeing it at 1200MP does put you off but you're getting 250G from it. If you compare it to Gears of War 2 or Fallout 3 you will see, it's better value for money.

Fallout 3 DLC at 800MP a piece for 350G is double the price for only 100G more. Gears of War 2 is currently on 1425G with both the Snowblind and Combustible Map Packs at 800MP and the Flashback Maps at an extra 400MP if you didn't pre-order.

There is more yet to come from these to games to go up to the limit of 1750G and they are likely to be at 800MP each, whilst it may seem cheaper than Stranglehold, in the long run it costs you more. DLC is a MASSIVE rip off and so far Halo has been the only one worth waiting out for as it actually drops in price.

If DLC is the future for gaming, it needs to improve vastly.

Similar situation (but in England so a bit higher priced ofc. 5 new at Play.com) and 1200Msp for the DLC. Shocked, well and truly.

Though if you compare their multiplayer popularity then you can see why they'd be excused..

This game is old now. I searched and found NO matches. It sucks that I got it so late. They really should lower the price to try and get people to play it. But to those waiting for a reduction, I wouldn't hold my breath..

Yeah I guess, I do think overall the Live Content is way too overpriced, there's not enough incentive for people to pay even more than the price they paid for the game and then the people who do by the add-ons for achievements or otherwise pay the price (excuse the pun). I know Microsoft need money to keep things running but they are milking us for everything now.

As for Stranglehold, I know the multiplayer is dead but you can always find other players/boosters in the forums and it's still so much fun to play.

Convinced a mate to buy it so we can have a laugh and I had a couple guys lining up to boost with me but I've lost their tags so I'll post on the trading thread whenever I get on multiplayer, see if they spot me.

I bought it for 19.99$ at BlockBuster without the case. (Just like a black blank case.)

Go to EB the next day, 9.99$ with the case!!! FUCK You BlockBuster.

I then rented UFC, kept it for 29 days longer than allowed and since it's 1$/day late fees, I will never rent again!

Collecting games FTW!

But, on topic: DLC should be free. Gimme 250!!

My brother and i bought the dlc about 2-3 weeks ago and it was still 1200, We bought it knowing full well we were only gonna have each other to play because it seems like nobody else in the world plays stranglehold mp but we needed the mp achievements, got all 1250g so i guess it was worth it.

No one plays the game much anymore other than for achievements so achievement hunters will buy it regardless of price so i cant see them bringing it down unless its on DOTW .

I think its unlikely for the DLC to ever drop as Midway no longer exist, its surprising the servers are still running. I justify the 1200 by saying if I was going to buy an arcade game for that much I'd only get 200 gs so its an easy 250

The price isn't coming down, why would it? Most of the posts I read on here state that the game was purchased for under ten dollars used. They don't see any money from that sale. The fact is, people are still paying money for the DLC because they need that 100%, so as long as there is money to be made, why would they lower it?

I consider this game as completed for me with 1000GS. Hell no, I won't pay 1200 points for a couple of maps on a dead MP just for 250GS :p

01-10-2011, 06:34 AM
i'd rather give the money to a charity than spend it on dlc with 250gs for a game with a great actor in it. 1200msp= 10.

I see the DLC at 1200pts and I dunno if I need to laugh or cry :mad:

I have read most if not all of the posts about the cost of the DLC for this game and i must agree that it is way over priced @ 1200 msp=10/$15 for 250gs. :eek: the game is ok but old, chow yun fat is a good actor, Jon woo is a good director/writer and that's it... as far as completing this game myself i keep checking the price whenever i get msp crossing my fingers...
but now this game is over 4 years old and no price drop i have decided to delete my game save and push the achievement blade way down my games list knowing i won't get it completed unless i win the lotto and have money to throw away(even then i'll hesitate).

Although one idea is for everyone who wants to get this game on they're completion list is to put in a petition to get the price down to an acceptable one. if this dosen't work then it'll be obviouse that they're thinking only about the money and not us gamers showing off this game on our completed games list.

The DLC for this still hasn't dropped? LOL.

Has this even ever been featured on the marketplace specials before as a discount?

I bought this the other day. I didn't want to wait anymore and bit the bullet. Does anyone else want to boost it (if you can bring yourself to pay for it?)

If so, gamertag is Skaos3010. PM me on Xbox.
