Dragon Age release-day DLC prices

You just bought our game for full price? Great! Please pay a little more for content we decided to yank and sell separately!

Posted on
BioWare has confirmed the Dragon Age: Origins 'Warden's Keep' content included with the Digital Deluxe Edition will also be released as $7 downloadable content at launch.
 
Warden's Keep brings "a new dungeon-exploring adventure, new loot including a set of ancient Grey Warden armor, a chance to gain two of six mysterious new abilities, a new base complete with merchants and a party chest to store their hard-earned items."
 
As was previously announced, the 'Stone Prisoner' DLC found free in all new copies of the game will also be released at $15 for those who buy used when the fantasy RPG hits PC and Xbox 360 on November 3--then PlayStation 3 later in the month.
 
And available only in new copies is the "Blood Dragon Armor," wearable by characters in both Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2.

If the DLC was on steam and i new it would be a perminant purchase i wouldn't mind as much as shoveling out for a one time download that disappears if you reinstall the game.
 
But generally speaking if a games DLC isn't retail worthy then the DLC its self isn't purchase worthy, that is why i never got the oblivion or fallout dlc.  same for charging for mappacks for games with pathetic map choice at launch.  Alot of devs are now pretending that post launch support is deserving of money when it used to just be a standard thing for pc games.  I think we can thank the consoles and microsoft for this.

DLC is fast becoming a way for publishers to further increase revenue. It's like an expansion pack only the overheads for each copy sold is much higher.
 
I do not support DLC that comes out the same day as the game, that is purely a cash grab. The GFW LIVE marketplace is not really a success either

Yeah, dropping $7 for DLC on release day seems like a ripoff

I don't care for DLC especially on the computer because if it comes through GFWL the purchase isn't tied to your account, IE.  I bought batman AA @ gamestop for the exclusive challenge maps, well you get home you install the game i immediately downloaded the extra content with the key i was given.  but the game wouldn't patch on live so i reinstalled, after doing so i worked fine but i couldn't redownload my content it was gone forever.  Thanks alot microsoft, this is why we opt for Valve.  where microsoft looks to get away with what it can, valve looks to add value for a consumer in its service.
