While I love the DLC and Kunos for their work, I am absolutely embarrassed to see these 'I'll buy it at any price' comments - do you guys have even the slightest idea about how market economy, supply and demand works!?

Maybe you are very well off, but statements like these are precisely what make demand elasticity more and more rigid, naturally pushing a - make no mistake - market-driven business to push prices higher and higher, looking for that elusive reservation price of its customers.

So maybe you are well off, and you think you don't care about what price you pay, but a) not everyone is like you, and b) if you continue making statements like this, the supply is eventually going to hit (and possibly race past) your own reservation price too. (Because everyone has one, even if you're not consciously aware of it - say, it's $100, $200, your monthly clothing bill, or $500...)

Sorry for the rant, but please... be more responsible.
I doubt the folks at Kunos read these comments and think: "Ha ha ha! If that's so, we'll ask 200$ for the next DLC... Suckers!!" They are aware that overcharging for DLC will kill the game. Personally, the reason I didn't buy rFactor 2 during the last Christmas Steam sale was the price of the DLCs. I wanted to get the Formula E pack and a couple of tracks like Le Mans or Sebring, but I find them too expensive. It's also why I don't subscribe to iRacing. The Raceroom tracks and cars are quite affordable, I think. And so were the Assetto Corsa DLCs.

Lol are people going insane? 40 euros for 4 tracks? Lol.

I don't know why all the mystery behind the dlc price, either it will be free or they are avoiding backlash of a high price. If it's the later, I hope they don't screw regional prices in latin america...

It won´t be free, otherwise it would be called an update, instead of a DLC.
In software, all DLCs are paid content.

I think the price is going to be much more than expected, i think 505 games will price it quit high

Either way, They need to factor in the cost of development against projected sales numbers at different price points to determine their price. They can't knowingly go to market with a price model (be it to high or too low) that will fail to make a profit.

We say we will pay whatever the cost is purely because we have expectations it will fall into a quite narrow bracket. That's not saying we would pay $200....

On the flipside, I'm eagerly anticipating the DLC as well as I can't wait to finally drive a laser-scanned Bathurst and Suzuka! Kyalami is also interesting for me, especially having the old bits in a laser-scanned format again. (If only the old layout would still exist...) Super-stoked!

(And no, even though 'I'm eagerly anticipating' it, I won't buy at any price...)
err... we are still talking about sim racing right? I think you are taking " I'll buy it at any price" comments way too literal. At the end of the day i don't believe your theory works here. Sim racing is already so niche that the developers cant out-price themselves. It will always have to be reasonable to an extent because they will risk losing the few customers they have now. Unless you are Iracing. then you can charge whatever you want.

I understand you, now that I work well and earn well my life, I just need more and more DLCs, I wish for you the same.

"now repeat for 12 hours" that got a true LOL out of me. Can't wait for this pack. I just got into ACC after the steam sale and really like i it alot. I so tired of sims that try to do everything. It's so nice to have a sim focus on one series and do it right.

Better be thisView attachment 347298 or else lol
Fingers crossed for a 2020 pack with Indianapolis later in the year, but the release on Tuesday is 2019 so this Aston won’t be there.

Check the liveries with red numbers on the link below for possibilities of 2019 Bathurst skins:
