I know, people act like they are going to get ripped off. For the moment, sure you might as well be, but there is no way possible a game this popular could get away with it. The only game iv'e seen rip off people and get away with it was F.E.A.R
In the original Fear, 3 map packs were released (I forgot the prices, I know at least 2 wern't free). Whenever the makers of the game (Sierra and Monolith) split up and monolith went with WB, they removed the map packs from the marketplace and patched them
completely out of the game, resulting in having literally useless DLC.
