Let me get this straight, a game, which hasn't been released yet, already has a DLC announced? Ffs..

You forgot to add that the DLC will be available right on the retail game's launch day.

Shame on you, Black Bean....SHAME ON YOU.

I won't buy this game for more than 12€, that's decided...

This DLC-thing is getting out of hand!
Commented on 2010-09-01 15:51:02
that's one game off the list for this year then..

What's worse is that the game only comes with 18 cars. Sad, when other games offer hundreds of cars in the main game, and even WITH the DLC, you only have 36. That's their choice, I guess, but I won't be supporting that kind of BS. ...
Commented on 2010-09-01 16:12:40
LOL, how dumb are they? Not only do they tell everyone that they take content out of the game to release it as DLC, they include the cars in the PC version? I loved Screamer but won't buy this because I don't like being ripped off.

GTFO Black Bean

I was gonna buy this brand new, but now i will get it used because of this crap.
Commented on 2010-09-01 17:54:17
..and it's probably just a download to unlock content that's already on the damn retail disc.
Commented on 2010-09-01 18:06:19
EL OH EL, keep your DLC, and game too while you're at it
Commented on 2010-09-01 18:38:10
Heh, cool that they've spelled Skoda with Š. Not many do that. :D
Rip off out loud, though >:(

Ok, I see some very negative atitudes here. So I'm going to be positive.
Considering how long it's been since we've had a game purely about rallying, I'm looking forward to this. Group B cars are certainly welcome, since they are a great aspect of the history of rallying and I will likely get this DLC at launch. For those who complain about there being DLC on launch day, what's the problem? Is it any different than any other day? It certainly isn't and Milestone isn't the first developer to have DLC announced before release. Turn 10 did the same with Forza 3 and lots of people still got the game and the DLC anyway. As for it being paid (in contrast to Forza 3's free launch DLC), you have to think of the Group B cars as being Premium content, in other words, pay extra to upgrade your game to a Special Edition, whose bonus is the Group B cars. Again, this has been done before with NFS Pro Street and Undercover with their collectors edition upgrades.

Extra Note: I don't think the PC version will have Group B cars on the disk. What they're saying is that the PC version will also have the content available for download, which you'll still have to pay for.

Not a cool move Black Bean.

I'd rather choose option 4 and buy a new Rallisport Challenge but apparently that dream is dead and buried.

I was going to buy this game, not anymore
Commented on 2010-09-01 21:55:15
Rallisport Challenge if like the previously rallisport games will make Dirt3 look like a hardcore sim
Commented on 2010-09-01 21:57:46
If we keep supporting devs doing this stupid shit, they will keep doing it. This is NOT a trend I want to see evolve. Games now days are already short on content and replay value.
Commented on 2010-09-01 23:03:49
Isn't dlc more like stuff they didn't manage to put into the game before its release AND stuff they made later on to extend the game experience? Then it would make sense. But this way they can just make the whole game, then cut it in half, release one half as a full game for full money and then the other half as a dlc for it's own price. If they have the stuff ready why not just put it into the game? Therefore yes, dlc on launch day and dlc any other day is different.
And other companies doing the same thing doesn't really change anything. Two lefts don't make right.

i'm still hoping GT5 will offer an option 3..it seems to offer as much Rally content as the retail version of this game

Except in GT does not have a co-driver that calls out the turns. So its not real rallying.

Except that Forza actually has HUNDREDS of cars. This game comes with 18. Forza had the content to justify a full price( hell there was so much shit in there you had to load 4 gigs of stuff to your hard drive to play it all). 18 cars is laughable. How many tracks?
