    One day they will find a way to properly price digital content to reflect depreciation and market interest. Tired of digital content still out pricing physical merchandise by a large margin. If gameshare didn't exist I would never buy anything digitally

    branstoneboy said:I want to get the Handsome Jack Collection but I have them all on 360 and they'll all be backwards compatible soon so why bother?That they're coming to the backwards compatibility list anytime soon, if at all, is nothing more than an assumption. With remastered, full content versions existing specifically for the One, a pretty unlikely assumption at that. The first one (the only one that isn't on the One, mind you) is the only one they've said is coming.

    AkaDad555 said:Regarding DLC, the only reason that makes sense to me is that people are still willing to pay full price for it, or they would put it on sale more often.

    If somebody has a better theory I'd like to hear it.
    Since you can't pick up a cheap second hand copy of most add-ons, there is no reason for them to reduce the price of add-ons or put them on sale. People have no choice except to pay full price for it.

Why take the time to bitch about it? You're not going to like everything in life so don't waste your time, just grit your teeth and carry on.

    Words to live by: If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

    Have a nice day! smile

    That makes sense as well. You would think that after a few years they'd put it on sale to get money from people like myself who don't feel DLC is worth the value.

    Wasn't the Borderlands "Handsome Collection" on sale just last month for $35? And both Amazon and my local GameStop are offering a brand-new disc version for $39.99. Not exactly a great sale at $40.19, is it?
