    Well i was going to get Gotham Imposters but no chance now. Thats taking the piss.
    All of that DLC is unlockable within the game. The DLC is just for people that are too impatient to unlock it and want it now.
    my guess is that more games will do this, therefore i predict that one can unlock prestige-mode for 800msp in the next iteration of CoD. facepalm

    There have been many games that have done this practice before GCI

    Heck, it's practically the whole premise behind micro-transaction games.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    Played in the Gotham Imposters Beta wasn't really impressed with it. Some of the weapons were overpowered but now I see the DLC cost is way over priced for such a thing...

    That's an offensive amount of DLC! Wow!

    Also, I have the option of purchasing DLC *before* I can purchase the actual game?!
    Thanks, modern-gaming....

    I'm going to certainly pick up the Lightning battle for FFXIII-2... but I hope that there is more content in it than described; if Square do more DLC like this, I don't want to be paying 240 points a pop for just one Coliseum battle...

    Unless that battle is Sephiroth, of course.
    Get the ambulance... "We haven't got an ambulance!!!"

    Though in all fairness, you can get Lightning in your party I believe; and compared to Gotham City Impostors, I think it'll seem all the more value for money.

    Stuck in there somewhere is the Megaman X suit for Zero in UMVC3. But with all that GCI DLC you'd probably miss it on the list. Good newshounding Punky! :)

    In Gotham City, At the end of every match, you get costume coins which can be used to buy everything in the costume shop. There are also no achievements linked to costumes either. It does seem a waste of space to put this all in the marketplace. The only things that you have to buy is stuff in the black market, which is the 3 extra mascots (which on pc I somehow got one free) some extra calling cards and the XP boosts.

    These lists get longer every week.
    Is there sales data anywhere as someone must be buying this crap.

    Allright. F*** Amalur.
    I don't like so much dlc's at release.
    My schedule said: by Amalur this month.

    Now my schedule says: wait till Amalur is a lot cheaper, and get the dlc also cheaper or for free.

    F*** early dlc.
    Just my opinion.

    Picked up the Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC yesterday, but I'm too terrified to take on Lightning at this point as I know she'll destroy me. Still, I look forward to when I can finally get her into my party, along with Omega.

    When you find the shop in the Colosseum there are some new weapons, pretty damn good weapons too.

    I'm pretty much maxed out, only 2 roles aren't (the ones I never use) and the battle is still pretty solid, fun all the same though smile

    I've beaten the two about 4 times now, still haven't gotten their crystals, so maybe you just have to keep beating them until they drop.

    These didn't exist when I did the list. The FF XIII-2 page for the US brought up an error when I looked to check the region availability of the opponent DLC. They must have rectified the problem later.
