Those who got the Deluxe edition will also get this DLC for free
oh nice for them. Well it's not compensating the lack of s3 and s4, but at least is something.

i never "fear" dlc, always a chance to pick it up if i like it.
i'm the only one who think that this over publishing DLC pratice (wich usally was related to train and flying sim) have become a ridicolus milkcash grabbing pratice? But if consumers don't "fear" DLC is obvious that marketing strategy group will continue this behaviour.

Except the base game in 99% of cases is more than enough. Honestly outside of sim racing I get bored of the base game long before I get to DLC so I don’t buy it and even with racing games I barely use all of the stock cars or DLC cars so I don’t really need it, it’s just nice to have in case I do.

I agree, pricing policy has seen quite some changes since distribution has moved from solid disks to downloads and I would guess on average prices have gone up. But to me it still seems like a market mostly driven by supply and demand, so that's just the way it is. Codemasters is probably among the larger companies so they seem to be doing something right market-wise. I am a day one buyer with EA products and a "wait for at least first discount" buyer with all others.

@Ole Marius Myrvold Yeah, I assume that's what he means, but my point is that Deluxe owners were never promised to get more than S1 and S2, it was clearly stated the Deluxe edition only contains those two seasons, so it doesn't make any sense to talk about a "lack of S3 and S4".

You know what's still cool? Mobil 1 Rally Championship. The stages in that game are out of this world. Especially for a 21 years old game. I really wish Dirt Rally had that kind of quality (and distance to travel) in its stages.

Mobil 1 RC is a true legend, I had that until few years now
when it became quite obsolete on my pc, comparing with
WRC, DiRT series and even comparing with R. Burns rally.
Stages are out of this space I agree but tbh I can't imagine
those on todays DiRT like games cause with textures now
much bigger that would be probably the one of the largest
game ever. hmm... maybe one stage ? A girl can dream eh... :x3:

I would have played this game a hell of a lot more had these cars been present from the off. Especially the Impreza. This was the original Colin McRae Rally feature car.

I think quite honestly if you bought tons of DLC you are partly responsible for the way games will be sold in the future. And that is a very bad thing.

ALL these companies want is your money, and as much of it as possible, they know all the tricks, know how dumb,and easily conned gamers are and know all the ways to con you. They want to make average titles, low on initial content for full price and then use your stupidity and desperation to charge you double what the game is really worth.

If you fall for it, you are just proving their point and moulding their way to sell you games, endlessly increase prices and squeeze more and more money out of you for products that are not worth it.

This game is worth about 40 quid with all DLC, if you paid for it all you have made these con artists over 100, for being greedy, selfish and dumb.

And there is no argument about keeping software companies going, you do know how much money these people make right, by squeezing the profit to the top men and leaving coders, QA guys on minimum wage, this is how gaming works.

Look at the shops today and you will see what type of people we are, the gaming industry is no different, they know how stupid you are and will bleed you dry.

It is your choice, but if you choose greed, you are potentially screwing millions in the future and making your hobby ever more expensive when if you just had a bit of guts and made a point they would change. , but hey that doesn't matter coz I paid extra to get my game a week early (when it has been ready at the devs for half a sodding year).

Back when DiRT Rally 1 was released and had no DLC and it was clear that there wasn't gonna be any DLC in the future either, people started asking for DLC to be added to the next game.
Now that DiRT Rally 2.0 has DLC, people are complaining that it has DLC... there's just no pleasing everyone

It is not a question of pleasing people. it is merely exploitation marketing. Somewhat akin to the gambling industry, who tactics gaming companies now copy in some ways.

Let me ask you this, would you buy a book of you knew it was not all complete? and you had to buy 4 lots of an extra 100 pages to finish it, a year later? No.

Would you buy an album that had 8 songs initially for full price, but later on the band kept releasing other songs to make it up to 20 for 4 times the price? No.

Gamers do it because they are easily influenced and addicted to their games, companies know this so are changing their pricing policies to reflect the fact that they can exploit gamers desperation to play new content, by releasing a half finished game for full price with stupid passes, then even after that is done, ask for yet more money.

if you do it, you are simply setting a precedent that Codies will follow in the future. Obviously it is your choice, but what you are effectively doing is being told that a game is worth 40 quid, then knowingly paying 80 quid for it,

You tell me if that is not a bit dumb?

Rob, the book image doesn't quite work. Lord of the Rings, for instance, was published as three separate books years apart. People knew they would buy an unfinished tale and still went ahead. Oh yes, and we are all still waiting for Mr. Martin to overcome his massive case of writer's block and deliver the next volume ...
