Get real buddy. Better $10 each and get to pick and choose rather than a $40 dlc. From the limited details they still sound like you're getting quite a bit for your money if you're a fan of the game and decide to splurge.

I think it's great! The purchase is up to you but I think if it happens to be your favorite game and they keep coming out with more stuff for it then great. It keeps the playability going.

Personally, I'd buy a ton more DLC for games if it was usually around $5 rather than $10, but hey, people keep paying for it so that won't happen.

Stay classy PSX

Wow...those are some tempting DLC packs. They may have to wait though. I broke at the moment and kinda bored of RDR.

Also i'm with Highlightreel. the $5 price point would be much more appealing. Too much content is over priced.

Glad they are supporting this even more. I am however so sick and tired of multiplayer being shoved down my throat. One simple single player mode among all these options? Is anyone else tired off all the online play? I miss the days of great, single player games. Even Assassins Creed us going multi. At least red dead had a great offline mode. I'll be skipping these except the single player one.

I fully agree. I really don't think this is a game that people bought for the multiplayer so why is all the DLC multiplayer based? I wish they had more content like Fallout 3. Gimme more guns, more challenges, more houses, more horses, etc.

@Mavfan321

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against having some upgrades to the multiplayer aspect but 4 out of 5 expansions dedicated to it? Really? I mean, how many people actually bought the game for the multiplayer? I may just be out of touch on this one but I thought the entire reason it sold so well was because of the amazing story telling in the single player campaign yet we're seeing virtually no additions for that game mode. I'm a little disappointed. Maybe I was just hoping for too much. Oh well.

I have so many problems with this. First of all, some of this content should have been included in the original release. How hard would it have been to have the mini games like liars dice in MP free roam, or horse races?

Second, I have nothing against zombies, I really don't, but at no point any time when playing RDR did I feel like zombies would have been a good addition. They might as well add nascar, it just doesn't fit into the RDR world and to me it seems like a cheap attempt to garner some love from zombie fans.

Third, more multiplayer maps? I didn't buy RDR for deathmatch, I bought it for single player and co-op. Tons of new multiplayer maps, is this modern warfare 2?

Lots of other stuff I could go on about but I'll just name the other big problem, price point. $40 dollars for what will be MP maps, zombies, and a tiny portion of co-op mini games, and a couple of missions for SP that will add little to the SP and have nothing to do with the games story.

It's over priced, it's ridiculous, and it's obvious that it will give very little extra gameplay time. Most of it will only let you play the same MP but in a different place or allow you to do things in free roam that you could already do in SP and should have been able to do in MP free roam in the first place.

These add-on's appear to be weak tea with bloated price points.

It does seems as though they held back on the free roam aspect of the game so they could stick us with some DLC later. I agree much of this should have already been included in the retail release.

Free Roam is weak as hell at this point.

Now I'm thinking that Red Dead might be the first game to fully reach my expectations, mainly because of the way they're supporting it with dlc. I just hope it isnt as buggy as some of the other stuff theyve put out. I'm especially interested in the zombie dlc.
There were a lot of games that I beat and was like "that's it?" then i'm disappointed because there are no plans to expand on the original game, I guess they get more money from sequels though.
If you're looking at it as an addition to the $64.04 you're right, but we can thank the internet enabled consoles for letting dev's charge for stuff we used to beat games to unlock on past consoles. There are ways around paying full price for dlc though. Just about every gamer has friends (In real life) that they can trust, just swap information with that person and put their PSN name on your console and vice versa, then one of you buy the dlc and let the other copy it and then workout your payment plan with your friend.

Anti-griefing measures are to prevent players from taking advantage of the system in order to cause you grief. In other words... they try to prevent people from being a-holes.

Below Techy talks about being killed and then respawning in the same spot only to be killed again and again. The people who continually kill him would be "griefers" so in the future they may add a feature that makes you invulnerable for a short period of time after respawning or perhaps they will make it so you respawn a certain distance away from your point of death.

Hope that clarifies things for you.

What a piss-weak attempt to steal my money. I'm sorry Rockstar, you should follow the example you set with GTA IV and put in some epic single player content. Even if I had a *real* internet connection, a credit card and was into multiplayer, I seriously doubt this would come anywhere near a purchase from me.

Uncharted 2 is a very linear experience. They might AS well focus on Uncharted 3 if you want more story.

Its much easier to creat expansions for single player games that are open world becsause of the freedom.

As is its much easier to create dlc for mp because of the freedom.

I'd be happy with an explanation of what happened to Seth, Irish and West Dickens after the assault on Fort Mercer. I mean, I get that that was the end of their arcs, but I felt cheapened. Also, an expanded epilogue telling us more about Jack. I would have liked to see him follow in the footsteps of his father and join a gang of some kind, but I guess not.

Lawless-

Go read the latest newspaper (after finishing the game) and you will find out about what happened to all those characters you mentioned!!!!

If they do any type of SP expansion, I think they need to focus on the time that John was home, leading up to making Jack our new character. That would bring Jack as being the next John Marston into prospective! All Jack talks about are things he and his father did, Learning how to shoot, etc... But I want to experience more of that!

Anyways, it looks like ima be workin an extra hour or two this week soz I can be ready for fall. Oh yeah, and this RDR DLC? I will certainly be getting liars and cheats and free roam. As far as the others go... nahh

This is DLC done right IMO. As usual, nobody is forcing you to buy it. As Rockstar states this is for the fans. Something they have plenty of.

Giving us a wide variety of high quality dlc at reasonable price points is better than only getting the one option many games offer.

The only problem is their catering to the multiplayer. The one time I went to free roam I got killed and respawned in the same place these guys killed me like 10 times till I finally just exited out of free roam. Haven't been back since.

If you find a bunch of tards in free roam you have the option to switch to a different one. I found a free roam where everyone was cooperating to do the strongholds and it was a fantastic good time. A lot of online game play is that way.

Terrible expansion pack...it's all based on multiplayer and a odd single player expansion. Not purchasing anyone of these. Definitely didn't buy RDR for multiplayer which I find very boring. Others may enjoy it, but for me and my preference, the multiplayer option is nothing special. No this is not enough, and wow...they want $10 for these things...hope RDR multiplayer fans get what they want, I just which they could release episodes like GTA did with Liberty City. I mean, does Jack have a story.

I strongly disagree. One of the main reasons I bought this game was the free roam mp. To my surprise I absolutely loved the SP. But When I dove into MP I thought it would include much more stuff. Now it sounds like all the stuff I was lead to believe would be there is coming. Very excited!

Ive always said it felt like the mp wasnt quite finished. It felt like it was missing a bunch of stuff. the competitive felt fine, but the free roam is lacking. I cant say that any more! Again very excited!

Ill be first to say it that that is how i feel. But What they are bringing is more than what I wanted or needed. I feel like with that big of a map theyre should be atleast some more gang hideouts, and I really though there would be some MP mini games. Aside from getting that we are getting tons more stuff. The purchase is totally justifiable, because the game is great!

I see what your saying, but I'm speaking for myself. I don't care for multiplayer games, so it would have been nice to have more single player oriented DLC like GTA had. I mean, they release four packs, and none can be truly called a serious single player expansion. That more or less what I wanted, not more MP. Like I said, I find the MP whatever in this game, but if you like, I'm glad your getting what you want, but I would be happy if I was getting what I wanted too...get it...lol

why is it all DLC has to be multiplayer purposed?
i miss a new law or something stating all DLC has to be to do with multiplayer?
i wish more developers would do what bethesda did, add a hours worth of SP campaign as DLC.

id love to see a few extra levels for uncharted 2, or heavy rain, or R&C ACIT or whatever really.
every game gets cut content because the developers did not have time to implement it, like the first trailer shown for GOW3 that level was cut.
why not release that as DLC?
why does DLC have to be new skins, or new multiplayer maps, or new multiplayer modes?

I will only get the "Undead Nightmare Pack" DLC. As previous statements by others, the multiplayer aspect of the game was not appealing to me. But a good single player DLC is always welcome. I hope they don't cancel it like they did with the Heavy Rain DLCs.
