$35. And yeah, they are.

To be fair at $35 that's $4.38 a character which isn't bad as DLC. But if any of those are just more variations of existing characters (like more Gokus, Vegetas, etc) then it's a f***ing lazy cashgrab.

Which just goes to show how f***ing stupid DLC is. That's more than 7% of the cost of the full game. The full game contains a whole bunch of characters, levels, music, sounds, the actual engine, etc... in terms of cost for effort, $4.38 per character is insane.

Do you know just how much time and money goes into making a new character for a fighting game?

"Costs differ depending on the developer, and whether the game is 2D or 3D, Bartholow replied, but added: “We’ve heard rumors that Street Fighter IV characters cost more than $1M each.”"

Even if it was on the lower end it would still be well over $100K easily so yeah, $4.38 per character is more than fair (again, assuming they are a unique and interesting character, not just a modified version of an existing character like another Goku or something).

A quick check shows that Street Fighter IV has 44 characters. So the characters alone cost over $44 million dollars?

SFIV had 25 characters originally, so yeah 25 mil is probably pretty close. 5 characters were only available in the Ultra version of SFIV, which was what, $40? so $8/character there.

That's a standalone game. You're not paying $40 for just five characters. Do you think the entire budget is just characters?

Yea it is. At least you can get it 12% off at fanatical.

I was talking about the base price ($35 for an 8-character Season Pass, assuming they're all unique and good, is a fair price).

And you can't buy the Season Pass at Fanatical, only the base game, Fighter Edition or Ultimate Edition so what's the point of even bringing up their 12% off in regards to the Season Pass pricing? Plus if you buy from Fanatical you're committed to the game and Season Pass DLC (without knowing who's in it) and if it's a s*** port you can't get a refund since you purchased outside of Steam.

Yea, I got what you meant the first time. I still think it's way overpriced.

Why I mentioned the deal should be obvious. Because it's a way to get the game and its dlc a bit cheaper.

for that game, its pretty damn close to being the entire reason to buy it. have you played Ultra? you're also ignoring the point, that your original assessment was wrong. the prices are high enough to where i don't buy them at launch, but they're not outrageous.

Buyers controll the market, if nobody bought lets say soul calibur then they wouldnt make another.

Plus doesnt SF have several version? (Ultra/super/etc for SF iv). Think some people waited for the 2nd version to come out.

Agreed tho, unless its a game where not much is behind a paywall its better to wait for a sale.

If none of the 8 dlc characters interest me i am okay with buying just the base game.
