The fee for content update was already determined as monthly.

There was talk of expansions, but unless it comes out in stores witha nice package it isn't one.

So for short, they're double dipping on the pricing while the game is still alive, which ti won't be for long at this rate.

After reading this again...this is a lot more than a monthly update so I can see paying $9.99 for the content pack. Its a new gameplay style, 45 light powers, 3 new instances...one looks like a raid. I'll throw down the money for this.

Sony thinks they can do this crap after the security nonsense less then two monthes ago.... Not to mention, YOU DON'T NICKLE AND DIME PLAYERS TILL THE GAME IS A HIT SUCCESS. The game isn't off the ground yet, and even DC comic lovers aren't thrilled with the game. Swear to god some of these CEO need to take some business classes, just because something is a success, doesn't mean it will be your game. You have to earn profits.

People will buy it cause its Green Lantern. I will keep reading up on this. If its good and they keep the monthly updates coming, I will buy it. But I have money to spend and a lifetime account so I'm not a great sample of the current player-base.

DCUO gets more amusing every day. I don't even have to pay for a sub to get my fill of entertainment.

Well, I thought they were sitting on their butts. This is a pleasant surprise.

That lifetime sub is starting to look like it's paying off after all.

A lifetime sub won't have to pay for it vs a monthly who would.

Since that's 10 less bucks, yeah.. serious.

@real65rcncom oh okay I didnt know lifetimes got a pass. I do think this game will be dead soon though. I sincerely hope you get your money's worth out of it.

Yeah, got five months out of it so far so that's $75 bucks worth so far.

Now minus the $10 you don't pay as a lifetime, that's another 10 bucks.

Paid $200 so not so bad thus far.

@real65rcncom I'm pretty sure the lifetime subscribers do indeed need to pay for it. At least they haven't said anything about that not being the case. Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if that is part of the appeal of charging for things like this, since otherwise they don't get anything from lifetime subscribers.

I see.. so they fail to deliver on the "monthly updates", half ass fixes, downtime..etc, etc.. and now they want to dime us immediately for new content... really, and of course, after our "free" time has expired...free time that was pure waste because not a single new ting has been added in over 2 months...awsome..

DCUO can go F*** themselves.

The game has been borked and they have been attempting patches to fix it you mean... the game has stayed in a constant state of not working as intended, and dumping in that crap update didnt help it at all. yes, you are right, it was an update, I'll retract the "over 2 months" comment. But who gives a rats ass about it when all many could do is log in , crash, rinse repeat. I really do hope the game just dies, so that a developer that actually takes pride in their work will have a chance to do the IP justice... these guys, and SOE, are just pure garbage.

Can't really support that thought process. I think a lot of games are crap and they just keep on going. I don't wish ill on anyone. People like games for different reasons. If I don't like a game, I just don't play it. Move on and don't stressed about it.

But as to the update...I don't mind paying $10 cause I think you're getting a lot for it but It does raise a barrier of entry for new players and will deter returning players. That's my only concern

You'd be a great candidate for the yellow ring.

That's a lot of hate.

The red ring is hate, I think. Not sure what yellow is.

At first it sounded interesting, but the more you read the details
all I see is the devil.
This so called expansion leaves a lot to be desired.
$9.00 for a this is a joke from the Joker.
AoC (Funcom) puts out better expansion than this for free.
SOE get your house in order, get players back into the game first before
you start milking them. This will not bring players back to DCUO.

'Rise of the Godslayer' was free? I don't think that is correct.
