I just hope we got more customization option when it comes to Suits, and that we can put Sam Fisher in one of those when playing D-Ops solo.
Having said that however I like DLC provided that it's sometihing I'm interested in. I've only ever pre-ordered one game and that was Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The bonuses with the pre-order were actually quite good which is the reason why I pre-ordered it. I think Far Cry 3 will be my next pre-order in a month or two then it will probably be Blacklist. It's more to do with the bonus missions than anything else. If there's extra content that will keep people playing for a couple more hours then I don't see the problem with it unless it's released on day one or week one. Personally I think developers should only be allowed to release DLC a month or two after the full game has been released. Any less than that then the DLC should already be unlocked in the game for you. It's stupid to have to pay for DLC a day after the game has come out.
it's pretty bad that on disc dlc is such a trend, but at the same time, it's easy to understand that developers want people to pre order the game or at least keep them from buying used games... Used games are a big problem for the industry, after all.
However, I wish more companies would go the Hitman Absolution way, where the pre orders gave access to a standalone Hitman mini game (sniper challenge).
The problem is that some of these greedy publishers don't realize that the used game world actually helps new game sales. Very much in the same way that used car sales help new car sales. If a game is coming out that I want to get, I sell some games that I already own to make sure I have enough. If I couldn't sell my old games it means that I don't have money for the new game and i don't buy it or rent it instead. Most people who buy a game used wouldn't buy them at full price anyway, so they don't lose that many sales as it is. But being able to sell games allows me to buy new games more often.
Until these publishers can show solid proof that the used game scene is REALLY hurting their sales, its all just a bunch of BS that they use to try to justify screwing people over.

I agree with Maher21. Used games do help the industry no matter how much publishers try to deny it. Money is still being made by used games albeit it's not what you'd call a large amount I think there's some sort of rule that says a fraction of used sales must go to the publisher. I'm not too sure to be honest but I do think that publishers make money from used games.
PEC is basically Barbie dolls for adults.....and I love it.
