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

Marx0r 03-03-2008 09:43 AM

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

xRogue 5x 03-03-2008 09:57 AM

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.

The Pants Party 03-03-2008 01:08 PM

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

True Mister Six 03-09-2008 10:12 AM

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.

Jade Falcon 03-10-2008 05:09 PM

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.

ShadowzKiller 03-17-2008 03:58 PM

Nevermind, I got 1250/1250 :-).

tadpeters 03-24-2008 04:42 PM

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 JORD K I 03-25-2008 03:22 AM

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

empire1341 03-26-2008 07:19 PM

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.

Pipotchi 04-06-2008 09:47 PM

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

Dabigamc 04-07-2008 10:40 PM

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

True Mister Six 04-09-2008 12:50 PM

Kane & Lynch's new pack is FREE!

puts this bunch of thieves 1200MSP cost pack to shame!

peterk 04-12-2008 07:06 PM

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

Valdarez 04-13-2008 07:03 AM

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.

Gallantsd 04-20-2008 05:37 PM

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

MikeinSC 04-20-2008 10:27 PM

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.

KRS 06-25-2008 12:52 PM

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















Oh wait, no it isn't. :p

tadpeters 07-20-2008 07:50 PM

I hope that was a joke. :D

kgfan2195 08-27-2008 02:19 AM

my buddy picked it up for $3 new at target our jaws dropped when we saw 1200MP for the DLC

tadpeters 12-29-2008 01:39 AM

Three dollars? ...

SoleAssassin 01-01-2009 10:55 AM

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

akuzed 01-01-2009 07:22 PM

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.

rhysg19951 02-23-2009 05:57 AM

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

susatsniper 02-25-2009 04:35 PM

It is a lot of points i only got it because a friend has is. They are easy to boost. But the mullti player i think sucks. it is realy bad

Tsaako 03-31-2009 12:25 AM

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.

SamBaraud11 05-25-2009 03:29 PM

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.
