Mass Effect 2 Paid DLC To Be Standalone

Joystiq has a story that makes sense out of the distinction between free DLC for Mass Effect 2 offered through the Cerberus Network and paid DLC that's also coming for BioWare's RPG sequel. Word is paid DLC for the game will be available separately, while free DLC will be offered through the Cerberus Network, the game interface which will be free for original purchasers of the game and can be purchased separately for $15.00 by those with a pre-owned copy. "We'll definitely have for-pay DLC down the road too," explains BioWare's Dr. Greg Zeschuk. "It's not going to be all free DLC for Mass Effect 2 -- far from that. There'll be paid DLC packs, and there'll be stuff available through Cerberus as well." Thanks nin. Speaking of Mass Effect 2, there's a new interview with BioWare designer Casey Hudson on GameInformer.com.

Does anyone remember when games were 30$ US and the expensive games were 35$? Now we are lucky if they are less than 60$. I'm done with spending money on these fail games.
You're talking out your ass mate. I remember buying Half-Life for £35 new and now games like Aliens Versus Predator and Napoleon: Total War are available at release for £18; factor in inflation and it should be nearer £47. Not only that but games drop in price dramatically quicker than before. So quit making shit up.

I really hate it when people take a point (ie. video games cost too much), jump to a conclusion (ie. they must have been cheaper before) and then state it as fact. Games cost more to produce, more to advertise, have higher production values and cost less than ever before... yet people still moan.

Phantasy Star 4 was 100 bucks. I was a senior in HS at the time and had to sell a few games just to afford it.

As for Daggerfall, that was the fall of 96. I remember that fondly...

Actually, if you're willing to buy when Steam has a sale, PC games are much cheaper nowadays.

PC games have been $50 for 10+ years, and prior to that, 60+ was more common for big titles. Compare that to the cost of going to a movie, a pack of smokes, or a gallon of gas.

Also, it's amusing that 90% of your posts on this site have the word "greed" or "greedy" in them, when you can't even get your facts straight. Good job kid. "Old School?" more like "Elementary School"

On the topic of DLC, it sounds like we'll get a lot more for ME2 than we got for ME1. Hard to say no to more of a good thing.

As pointed out, PC Games used to be 50 bucks. Unless you're Infinity Ward, then they would cost around 248 bucks.


..ok you got me, I made that last part up.

That's right kiddies! NOW you can get your DLC: free, paid, promotional, obligatory and non-descript! Coming soon: subscription DLC! All thanks to Bethesda and their gay horse armor! But that's not all! What else do we have for them Pat?

With respect to PC games, around these parts they're actually cheaper. Back in the day when Daggerfall first came out ('94/'95?), it cost me a whopping $105Cdn; the most I've ever paid for a game (if you don't count the few MMOs I've played ). Most big titles were $80+

These assholes can't just add everything that they made during production? What a pile of shit the gaming industry has become. Greedy fuckers.
