Damn pay $60 for a game with no campaign and old maps? Don't you also have to pay another $60 for season pass for new or should i say rehashed maps?

How come people just now seem to see this?

7 years ago hardly anyone complained about this. Now almost everybody just wants all the post launch content to be free...

 

I personally think it is good to charge money for more maps etc. After all there are still people working on those maps. Not to mention how much playtime one can actually get out of a zombies map. The Pass is 50 bucks, which I agree is too much, other games in the past did it better. (Bioshock infinite, GTA IV)

Eh, AAA games were a lot different then compared to now. With games like Fortnite and such the business model of being F2P, with a whole load of optional cosmetics definitely seems to be the most profitable when done correctly. I can understand why there was an outrage when the Black Ops Pass was initially announced. CoD seems hellbent on holding onto this outdated method of releasing DLC’s, while many other publishers seem to have forgone it completely.

In what regards?

But you are right, the suply drop stream or whatever it is called is a joke and the Black Ops pass almost costing as much as a new game is dumb, but all things considered I happily pay more to get more and never expect to get new content for free.

 

I just don't get it for the Black Ops season we had to pay 60 bucks for the game and additional 4x 15 bucks. It is just insane how map packs got sold for 15 $/€ and almost nobody seemed to care.

 

Activision just handles this whole show in a really bad manner and they always have been doing that. I just think it is strange that it took folks almost 10 years to notice that.

I think season pass is $50 in US.

 

I've never minded paying for content if I'm going to play it. I'm so torn myself...I'd like to get the zombie maps but I'm just not in love with bo4 and find it hard to pay them for something I'm so disappointed in.

 

BF1, I put in 1800+ hours, so the $ I paid was very much worth it. BO3's Arbgwaoth debacle stopped me from upgrading to xb1 at first, but when I eventually did, I got all of BO3 on xb1 for under $100 and it was well worth it, despite the bugs and crashes. Maybe I'll wait and buy all the bo4 content on sale in a year or two. That'll give me time to suss out if Treyarch will walk back some of the crap of BO4, or if they'll blindly stumble forward on this same ill-fated path that they've chosen.

If I don't suddenly obsess and buy it.

 

While it is fun to say "no" to the wanton obsessor in my head, I sometimes do lose these battles with myself. It is both entertaining and often confusing living in a constant state of flux. 🙂
