We've joked around about the amount of and how crazy expensive Ace Combat 6's downloadable content
is, but never really pulled out our calculators to get the full picture. But the crew at 1UP
did and their findings will make AC6
fanboys' jaws fall to the floor.
Let's get to it. The grand total of all of AC6
's DLC (including new jets, skins, new missions and multiplayer modes) equals an astonishing $121.83 or 9,750 Microsoft points. Add to that the cost of the game itself and you've got a $181 "complete" AC6
experience. Outrageous! After doing the math, 1UP was able to ask NAMCO about the numerous / crazy expensive DLC and were given the standard we "pay very close attention to user feedback and comments", blah, blah, blah marketing runaround. But most interesting is the fact that NAMCO refused to answer 1UP's questions about certain items' pricing, what was up with the Beautiful Katamari paid unlocks
and how they'll treat Soul Calibur IV
DLC. On second thought, maybe NAMCO has taken the crown from EA for being most evil DLC developer.
