    This is Square Enix's M.O. going forward.

    Won't be long until they're hated as much as Konami.

    They went full retard om this one.
    I highly doubt the prologue and the paris mission will provide many hours of gaming. They will probably put in achievements and expect that will make they game replayable but i could care less.
    Hitman has always been storydriven and i feel they should have just pushed the date way later so we could get all these parts in one to have the full story and gameplay experience.

    Who wants to play a piece of a game, wait a month and play the next piece? It's not a tv show, that shit is stupid. Whatever, I'll just wait until the whole game is out.

    Dunno. It might end up sucking ass, but it was always intended to launch with only parts of the contents, that was detailed during the initial announcement.
    Only real change is that they removed one of the maps from the initial release and they now offer a cheaper start package instead of you having to pay full price and wait for the rest of the content you've already paid for. And at least in my region the price of the initial release and all the coming content packs is exactly the same as the old price.

    Shame they're doing this ridiculous piece by piece release nonsense, the game looks amazing.

    Will wait for the full disc version, any info on if Xbox is getting a beta? I just saw PS4 and PC.

    I been playing Blood Money this week and man I love that game. The suit changes and the 10 different ways to get the missions make it such a classic game. XBOX 360 has it for 5$ right now.

    They're gonna sell us 10 episodes at 10 bucks a piece or some bullshit. It'll end up being over 60 bucks for the complete game because devs are greedy as fuck. They already want more than 60 for games and as a consumer I think thats bullshit. They're already withholding content and releasing it a month later as DLC or even day one DLC if they wanna look like real pricks. Most games aren't worth 60 at release as is, and to know they're missing content is a slap in the face.

    Just remember, folks. Companies get away with shit like this because the consumers buy into it. Keep that in mind when you go to buy the first episode and the following episodes thereafter.

    You can only blame the companies up to a point for doing stuff like this. At some point, you've got to put blame on the consumer as well

    If you don't buy it, they stop doing stuff like this. The way you spend or not spend your money is a poweful decider of how things work.

    What kills me is that we saw this shit coming years ago. Also, what kills me is that we're fine with paying $30 or so for three chunks of extra content, just as long as we've already paid $60 for the "full" game. Now we're crying foul because they want to sell the game in increments right off the bat.

    Think of how much money people spent on a game like Borderlands 2, if they bought all the DLC as soon as it was available. Nobody bitched. In fact, praises were thrown at Gearbox for "caring about the community" and keeping the game going with extra content.

    I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but we've certainly done absolutely nothing to make them think it's a bad idea. Gamers are all talk, and developers know it.
