I wanted to do a new playthrough with this DLC but now after all the holiday sales and gifts everyone got we're all pretty much loaded for bear as games go. So, now everyone will most likely be waiting for a good sale on it. I know I will.
I'll still buy it on day one but I'm a massive Bethesda fanboy, for the average person you are likely right.
Overall I wish people would stop taking money to fuck over part of their fanbase. It's not the same as an exclusive game from a platform controller, it's much more insidious and insulting.
