I went to download it this morning, I found you could only download the individual parts for the Insecticons at 80 Microsoft points each, plus Hound's parts and G2 Bruticus never even showed up on the download-selection screen. Pretty much ruined my morning; hoping HMS will make it up to me and have the full pack for download when I get on tonight.

Secondly, MegatronWolf, I think the fact that people already have the preorder stuff is why this pack is the same price as the dinobot pack. Think of it as getting the preorder stuff for free when you buy the pack of 4 MP characters. I imagine they didn't want to charge people for something they already have. Also, I'm not sure about PS3, but on Xbox you can buy all the characters seperately if you want. It's in the Character Creation, and in stead of charging Energon Chips, or whatever it is, you spend money on the parts you want. I bought the last pack as soon as it was up, so I'm not positive that it works that way on PS3.

They may be novices in online services but this quote from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata is very promising:
[quote]And one thing Nintendo has determined as a company policy, what we are not going to do is create a full game and then say, ‘let's hold this back for DLC.' That's not our plan. We're definitely not doing that. It's an extreme example, but I think there are examples of games where you get that initial purchase — the very core part of the game — and everything else around it is all DLC. However, if you do that I believe customers will have no motivation to go out and buy the retail package to begin with.[/quote]
Day 1 DLC with FOC was a joke. There is no reason that should have been held back for DLC. At least I got it free when I downloaded the PS3 version from the store. I also hate when companies rerelease a game with Game of the Year editions that come with all the DLC in one package.
