Yeah, it used to be that expansions were something started after it was determined the game was a big enough hit to warrant the expense with a sufficient install base. But since DLC can be done in smaller chunks, and not requiring a CD and box to sell, we're now seeing day 1 DLC. I am somewhat annoyed at this trend, as it does appear to be exactly that: an effort to cash in as opposed to make the original game as solid as possible. On the other hand, I played Borderlands and the Island DLC and thought both the original and the DLC was worth the money I paid for them. The original campaign was long and satisfying (despite the weak ending and PC-specific bugs) and the DLC was original and fairly long with new monsters requiring new tactics.

On the other hand, I think that Project 10 Dollar has the potential to destroy not only the used market, but also the rental market. This is prolly less of a concern for someone like me, as I play on PC exclusively, and get all my games thru Steam and D2D, which I can't resell (as far as a I know). But for console users this seems to be the used-and-rental-kiss-of-death.

What is unreasonable about games priced for $50?

In a word? DLC.

So many games today have content stripped from them only to be pushed off as DLC after release, you really have to love the game to keep paying and paying for it (some may be worth it more than others).

I still feel slighted when paying more for a game through Digital Distribution than Retail when they cut out the middle man, have no manual to print or physical copy to burn onto a disc or discs, no box to print, no employees needed to box and ship products to stores.

It wouldn't be a red sox fan who can't figure out the difference between single and plural tenses.

Seeing as I either rent or wait for the bargain bin for the vast majority of games these days I could give a shit less about Project Ten Dollar or games like it. If the publishers and retailers don't want to price new games more realistically $20-$30, I'm sure as shit not going to buy them.

'project ten dollar' hah, wait till the publishers force console gamers to retain their games forever.

hundreds of thousands of gamestops will shutter overnight.

I think the problem is with using the word IS instead of using ARE. It should read There are two sides...
