Turn Your Call Of Duty: Ghosts Guard Dog Into A Wolf For $1.99

Want to change your guard dog into a wolf? That will be $2, please. ...yes, really.

As of today, Call of Duty: Ghosts owners playing on the Xbox 360 or Xbox One can pay $1.99 to have the multiplayer guard dog replaced with a wolf. The purely cosmetic DLC will arrive for other platforms at a later date, according to Activision community manager Dan Amrich.

The guard dog streak is given to players who get 5 kills without dying while using the assault strike package. The dog can be very effective and as a wolf, he's just that much cooler. But $2 for a skin? Isn't that a little...silly? However, if you want something free, just grab the new festive camo pack, which was also released today. And don't forget that if you want to earn double XP, you need to get involved in the game's popular Extinction co-op mode this weekend.

Well, as always, if the market will bear it, then it will sell.

lol. I guess it's no different than buying new outfits in other games though.

That's exactly what I was thinking too. Didn't for example WKC have this same model, with skins to buy as mini-DLCs?

but it's totally lame and uncalled for in those games too! DLC has been a floodgate for this crap since it started.

What WKC had was sort of specially offensive, you are allowed to build your accompanying avatar one time but to ever change it you had to pay a fee. They might have also had some other hairdos and stuff though too.

But most JRPGs have outfits like Final Fantasy XIII-2, Tales of Xillia, Atelier, Hyperdimension, you can buy swimsuits and such.

Ah yeah that's right - that's how it was. It's just so shamelessly impertinent one can't help but almost respect them for it. :D

But yeah I did imagine that this was pretty common practise in jrpgs.

What ever happened to in-game rewards, seems to me like this is just another ploy for money.

@world...I still remember the days when outfits used to come in the game and given as a reward for completing some sort of mission...now you have to pay for them. Thankfully I don't support this game or it's business practices.

If you think $2 is bad for a skin don't play League of Legends.

2 bucks to change the look of your dog to a wolf?
just the wolf, no difference gameplay wise?
seriously?
bargain of the century!
as the saying goes, a fool and his money are easily parted!
so, when you purchase the DLC, does it come with a branding iron with the word tool on it?
certainly should!

The sad thing is that this will actually sell. I do believe though that a great portion of the buyers are prepubescent kids who just have to show their dominance with a wolf sidekick.

I'm surprised they haven't thought of selling dog armor yet.
