The next DLC is being split into 3 parts

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-dlc-confirmed

3 packs at 560 Microsoft points each. I'm not sure how I feel about this yet.

Yer, it seems a bit much for what it is.
But I will most likely get it, as I have got some spare MS points.

Splitting it into 3, making you pay 560 Ms points 3 times over and forcing you to wait a week between each!! Sounds like a bit of a swizz to me. This should've been one pack worth about 800 points or something. As it stands it works out at about 15 for 5 cars, 20 events, 2 new modes and 11 achievements which is a bit steep.

Anyway, I'll probably still download them all like a sucker, seeing as I like the game so much!

I don't feel like there's enough content to justify that cost. Might be wrong, but meh.. Will probably still get it, as I'm a sucker for 100% progress in games.

This is dirty.
Very dirty.

Making us pay THAT much for 3 packs which only contain 195 extra GS. And how much could they have put in exhept new chalenges and cars?

I really feel screwed by Microsoft or EA or whoever made up these prices.
Damn dirty.

I'm not getting this until it goes on sale. Does it make a difference to them? No. But it makes a difference to me, and I'mma save my points for something more worth my while.

Also, I'm quite disappointed by these prices. Dammit.

Wow, so over-priced! It isn't really balanced when you look at the first DLC and the amount of achievements etc. I would have expected all the three new DLC packs to have been one 560MSP release....money grabbing much?

Im sorry but when did the amount of gs = fair price. If you are worried about dlc containing achievements for value then something has gone wrong. dlc should be about quality+quantity.
But this is still wrong none the less. makes no sense paying that much for fuck all. At roughly 15 for all 3 i expect to get almost a half of what the game has to other. Not a couple of races and extra cars.
Will definatly wait for the DOTW or for them to come out as a pack (once people stop buying it at this price)

That does indeed seem very steep for 3 DLC Packs but know me I'll buy them I love Hot Pursuit and would like to keep my 100% also the fact I've had points on my account for awhile now not spent on anything.

Why on earth did you put 30+ hours into a game that you don't like playing?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am pretty sure the DLC was once slated for a single release entitled the Lamborghini vs. Porsche Pack and it was listed as 800 MSP. Now they want 560 for 1/3 of what you were getting for 800?!? And to top it off the 3 parts are released in weekly intervals. I have no problem buying the DLC as I love the game & I love achievements, but they are starting to get carried away. It is a good thing I got a free 800 MSP using the Bing Bar so needless to say I will buy these anyways.

FU EA, but all these retards that rant and rave about the price, they keep buying it, so EA keeps ripping you off. Keep buying the over priced crap it will continue to be over priced. Quit complaining when its your own fault. I'm not stupid enought to download that crap at that price.

will there be like a bundle discount for buying all 3 of the dlc packs at the same time? that's the only way i may pick these packs up, rather than wait for the inevitable dotw discount.

I was about to buy the first DLC pack, then I saw there were 3 more packs coming for 560 MS points each. So that would mean I would have to spend 2240 MS points or 20 Euro just on all DLC, that is just too fucking much.
I will wait for a GOTY or Ultimate Edition later this year..

Let's face EA is a business. More content is good but I can't help but agree with most people here that 800MSP seems like a more reasonable amount for such content. The DLCs are going to add up to more than the actual game

The first one is up now. Looks to be multiplayer centric, I only really like the singleplayer in this game.


Such a rip-off, Criterion weren't like this before EA... the value and love they gave to Burnout Paradise earned every cent I gave them.. but this is bullshit.

I'm with Jellybean - this is really boring. I had more fun on the Pinnacle Station missions in Mass Effect.

I've installed the Armed and Dangerous DLC and am trying to get the online chievies out of the way. It seems most of the times I finish a race it signs me out of autolog, just wondered if anyone else is suffering with the same problem?? I don't know if the races get counted towards the achievement or not?
