Kombat pack overpriced

6 characters for $40 bucks... wtf. thats as big as a rip off i've ever heard. Put in another 20 bucks and your pretty much paying for the game again. Are people really this stupid to think this is acceptable
sorry, we all thought you could read. The Kombat pass isn't $40 dollars for 6 characters, its 40 dollars for;

  • 6 New Upcoming DLC Playable Characters
  • 7 New Upcoming Exclusive Character Skins
  • 7 New Upcoming Sets of Gear
If you don't like it, you can buy the character for 8 a pop individually and skin sets for 2 (or 3) a pop. No clue about the gear. It also comes with 1 week early access.

How much should they charge for 6 characters?

But you're not only getting 6 characters. You're getting the early access, the gear, the skins... All of that as well. So no, that's not a rip off lol

The Kombat Pack's gonna have 7 skins and 7 gear sets for those skins, and 18 extra skins (like the MK2 ninjas for Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Noob) as well. That's why it costs 40 bucks. If you want just the characters it'll actually cost less to buy them separately.

Are all you people who are bitching complaining about every other fighter that does the same shit, too? Tekken, Soul Calibur, Street Fighter, DOA etc.

Aside from it just flat out being worth it to me, think about it this way - Super Mario 3 for NES cost as much or MORE than you just paid for MK11. I remember seeing it for $75 in a store once as a kid. Games haven't gone up in price since then, and they cost a boatload more to make for obvious reasons. New releases cost the same then as they do now.

I'm not saying WB/NRS is hurting for money, but to get as much content as we will end up with in MK11 for $100 isn't some sort of insane ass raping. For the amount of work put into this game, it's well worth it to me. And again....you don't HAVE to buy the DLC. It's simply an option.

"Exclusive character skins". so the same skins but with a different shader lolol. Whatever man, its your money to waiste, the consumers in the gaming industry suffers because of idiots like you. If drones want to throw their hard earned money down the drain go ahead. The sad part is people by these kombat packs without even maining the characters in them. If you want to lab against these characters just look up their frame data or play against sets with a friend who have the packs.

Who hired this guy
ya leave sfv out of this bro. I have all the dlc characters (18) i didnt pay a cent for any of them except Guile. Thats 3 40 dollar Nrs kombat packs worth , you do the match buddy lul
That was all possible cause people gave capcom shit and the bad press they received, as long as we give NRS a pass the more shit they will pull

I'm not sure you know what suffering means. We are enjoying the game and spending money on it to encourage the devs to make and release more. You are scoffing at whats been offered and calling us idiots. You also bought it anyway, so I guess you're an idiot too. Welcome to the idiot party.

is this sarcasm? who gives a shit about skins? a season pass is supposed to be cheaper than buying the characters individually, but in this case it's even more expensive. am i missing something? why does anyone think this is ok?
 
$6 for a characters with all the skins, gear, intros outros, dialogue, etc. is not too much. Also, remember that you're getting 6 characters, early access to those 6 characters, 19 skins (according to the most recent trailer from Netherrealm), and free sets of gear. To me that is well worth the price.

Plus there’s more modes coming too and more Brutalities

Yes Capcom was heavily pressured by the community... but nrs players generally are content eith their sotry modes and fatalties and graphics etc etc. Your complaint falls on deaf ears is my point.

Also Sfv always had an in game currency that allowed you to buy dlc characters with fight money. I just think its weird the guy I originually quoted is pointing at sfv boogeyman. he doesnt know what hes talking about lul

I was happy with the Fanatical deal I got when the game came out, paid 60 for the game but effectively 13 for the season pass.

Since well paying full price for a season pass can feel eh.

Early access is an entire week before it’s normally released right? To put that into perspective, people were paying upwards of $200 to get the game just a few days early. For $40 I can get all 6 DLC a week early (and the other stuff the Kombat Pack gives you)? Deal.

I didn't buy it bc I know i'm not going to main any of the characters in the kombat pack. I wouldn't spend 2/3 of the price of the game just for 6 characters and some "exclusive skins" (ie more shader bs). $40 bucks for essentialy 6 characters is way overpriced, and I don't like the feeling of being violated by a big corporation like Warner Bros. I can't believe how many people fall for these corporate cock sukers and get scammed

you don't get the character earlier. others just get it later. stop defending these shitty dlc decisions. it is a dickmove just like preorder dlc.

To pay this much for a game and it's dlcs is flat out ridiculous but people will continue to do so. Like you said just don't buy it if it's a issue. I for one will not buy it. Each there own
