Discontent with Mass Effect 3 downloadable content




While I'm still pulling together a review of the 40-plus hours' worth of Reaper-fightin' madness that is Mass Effect 3, I was less impressed with the decision to charge $10 for launch day DLC From Ashes. To wit:

Not that I mind the release of DLC, but on the very same day, for extra cost? That defeats the purpose of DLC to begin with — ostensibly prolonging the life of a title by adding content at the user's discretion. Charging an extra $10 for content thrown onto Xbox Live or PlayStation Network the same date as release sounds awfully floor-mats-and-destination-fee to me.
