Edit: To be fair there is something you could do to this that might make be buy it sooner and closer to $50. I've heard that the dLC packs are these little separate mini games that use a lot of interesting stuff but you can't use that stuff in the main game.
I'm not sure exactly what you heard, but this is basically how it works.

There are two kinds of DLC for SR3:
1. Outfits/weapons/vehicles/homies. These are additional customization options for the game, and they have the same functionality as the included items in the same category. For example, DLC weapons can be used anytime regular weapons can be used (except for the missions where your weapons are predetermined).
2. Additional activities and missions. These are the three downloadable mission packs that are listed in the release blurb. By their nature, these aren't used in the main game... they're additional story missions and activities. What you may be thinking about is that some of these extra missions include new weapons, which I believe aren't available outside of those missions.

While I certainly understand being annoyed at the first type of DLC, if you're interested in it or the mission/activity DLC, there's nothing to keep you from getting it now if the price is right.
