    I can't find my glasses... Did anyone see Star Wars: The Force Unleashed DLC reduced? Didn't think so...

    Should note on there that the reduction of Team X is that there are unobtainable achievements at the moment.

    I recommend the DLC for Two Worlds II. Fantastic price.

    Anyhow, Special Forces Team X just got released! How the hell does it only have 200 gamerscore?!

    Which achievements are unobtainable? I haven't seen anything to back that up. Weird?

    I only know of the current issue with the level reset glitch.

    Reading the solutions the challenges can't be completed because sniper kills aren't registering apparently got patched on Steam though but not XBL.

    Where is Stranglehold dlc?
    Where is. brutal legend dlc?

    These Dlc titles are mouldering in the vaults.
    Noboby is interested in paying grossly inflated prices for Dlc that gives less gamer score than an arcade game that costs far less!

    Repeating what many others have said: finally a cut for Puzzle Quest dlc, will get that! Possible the dlc for grid too, 400 sounds reasonable already.

    You must have some good lungs! :-)

    I have reason to believe this will never happen. I don't know about the technicalities of it, but the people who was responsible for the Stranglehold multiplayer filed for bankruptcy, which means no one has the rights or ability to reduce those prices.

    While I agree these and many other older titles need permanent reductions on DLC, I do take issue with your final point. Most people don't buy DLC (or games for that matter) for achievements, they buy it because they enjoyed the game and want more. That reasoning may apply to the community of this web site as it deals with achievements, but not the rest of the world.

    Actually that would have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the prices of the DLC. It depends upon who has the DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS for the game and DLC, not who made what portion of the game. But seeing as the publisher was Midway and they have went bankrupt, it falls on whoever picked up the rights for that IP (Possibly Warner Bros?). It's probably more along the lines of the new rights holder of the IP not doing anything with any part of the title as it is not a high priority to them at the moment or not being aware of all the assets they attained with the purchase.

    Someone obviously does hold the rights of this DLC would more than likely be de-listed because someone has to get the money from the sales.

    Yep! That's what I meant. "Distribution rights..."

    laugh

    I told you I didn't know the technicalities of it, but never did I say whoever created the game had the rights to the pricing. I believe I used the word, "responsible." My apologies for misleading. :-)

    I didn't understand your last paragraph though. I'm unable to fill in the blanks and figure out what you were trying to say since I'm pretty sure there's a typo in there...

    I think the "of" was meant to be an "or".

    Stay out of this, Rodster!

    Makes sense now. At any rate, I just play the games. I don't care about this mumbo jumbo. :-)

    It just stinks this hobby can get a bit expensive.

    Galactrix needs further reduction.
    I agree 800msp would be more appropriate.
