I am not sure if everyone here is familiar with the new craze with DLC but I recently got my son's the Spyro Skylanders game where you have to buy each character at $8-$10 each to play them in the game. Granted each character is already on the disc but you only play them if you buy the figure with a RFID chip inside. The game is fun albeit simple designed for kids but my kids love swapping out characters and watching them pop up on screen. Well due to the popularity of Skylanders (you can't find these character anywhere without a lot of work) other developers are sure to follow suit. If Epic did it with the next Gears (assuming they do make another Gears game) they could make you buy character figure (like the toys you can buy) each would come with a DLC code and you could use them in game for new MP skins. They could also go as far as doing weapon to add to your character and those would give you DLC codes for weapon skins. The possibilities are there but will it ever happen for anything other than a kids games, and if it did would you want it? I personally think they could do this to a small extent for only additional content that will not directly affect game play for collectors and it would be fine. Like an added bonus for buying collectors items, but they couldn't make it required to play all of the game like Skylanders did. Thoughts?
