Well if they put them out faster, the more broken they will be. The content that the Skyrim DLC's have are above and beyond the average DLC, and in my opinion the price is fair. Sure there are a few glitches, and they probably should have more patches for them. But overall, they make everything very well, and pretty fast for what you get.

Dragonborn was worth every penny. Even Dawnguard was pretty worth it. Mass Effect 3's Omega, however, is not worth the 20 dollars.

Maybe they are worth the $20 but if everyone keeps paying that price, it'll be the norm for all dlc. Just a thought...

DLCs already have a variation of price... would you think it would be fair to have Dragonborn for only 800 pts? Even 1200? That DLC was worth 2000 pts easily compare to the scrap other DLC are that cost 1200...

Its worth 50 hours of gamepay so yeah i think its worth its price.

Just keep watching. Soon, 1600msp will be the norm, not the exception. Especially when next gen games will increase by $10.

If you paid attention, all major expansions are priced at the 1200-1600 mark. It does suck that things go up in price, but you probably should remember Shivering Isles being pricey as well, an Expansion that is still arguably one of the best on the market still, or Lair of the Shadow Broker.

Not really, I doubt 1600 will be the norm. Maybe for expansions such as dawnguard, dragonborn, ect. regardless if we think they suck or not, they are still considered expansions. Why do you think next gen games will increase by $10? They have a good market right now with games being $60 and I don't think they'd increase that.

They have increased every generation claiming increased costs for production. Sega Genesis cartridges used to be $40, xbox $50, xbox360 $60. May I save this to a file and quote you in the future concerning the 1600msp? ;-)

Take a look at these ad scans from Toys R Us from 1996. Specifically the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo page. Some of the Super Nintendo games were going for $69.99, and then come back and tell me we're overpaying for games now. So if the standard price for next-gen games ends up being $70.00, nobody should complain, inflation-wise it's overdue.

And Dragonborn to me is worth 2000 pts... easily. Thats is if you play it properly... because yeah if you only rush the "main quest" its very short, but exploring solstheim and doing all the other quest... lots of gaming fun time.
Im with you man, no major glitches etc... just stuck quest items in my inventory, nothing game breaking. Just recently finished with moving to another state, so tonight begins my questing yet again, bleeding into Sat, and then Sunday. This will be grand.

Prices have already started going up, about 3 years ago a new 360 game would have been launched at £39.99 whereas now some are launched at £44.99. Games on Demand sells new titles for even more, some over £50.

It's just money (plain paper) and people keep arguing over it. For fuck's sake, how can the conversation about future DLC's turn to money talk
