VideoGamer.com Analysis

Release of new DLC around one year since the game first hit stores isn't something we expected. We're anticipating Namco Bandai will make the most of the new content by re-releasing the game in a 'Game of the Year' style package.

Lucky for you then that Eden have adopted a... curious... means of distribution.

The content pack itself, with updated wardrobes, bug fixes and base features is free. The vehicles, however, cost. 10 vehicles at 80msp apiece would equal 800 points for the diehard collector, or the bikes alone to populate the new showroom, 240 points.

That's not a bad way to put it out... I saved 160 points (after expecting the full pack to cost 800), got the cars I wouldn't mind seeing included, and... aye.

My point still stands.

Not something I'll be eagerly awaiting either.

I've maybe done one or two things online and the inclusion of bikes may be good for most but it means I'll have to actually use the dual shock.

Ah, you'll cave in once you hear Ghost5 and I having fun again.

...

Speaking of which, did you ever get back into the roulette?

You say that now, but methinks the allure of Veyron-tag might prove irresistable, if only for a single session... ;)

Not really interested to be honest. February has MGS, Never Dead and then we have Mass Effect 3 in March. TDU2 will continue to collect dust.
