Microsoft Flipping Off Loyal Customers, Yet Again… This time with GoW2 All Map Pack

leave a comment »

Microsoft marketplace weenies sure like shafting loyal customers.   As an “early adopter” I do expect that I would pay more for something than someone that waited, on the other hand please explain to me how it is fair that Microsoft is taking customers that have already bought all the Gears of War 2 map packs for 2000 points and are asking them to shell out another 1200 points to get the rest of the maps (Dark Corners Map Pack) that were just released?

All the maps for GoW2 cost 1600 points right now.   Microsoft could give the Dark Corners Map pack free and still have made an extra 400 points off of me and other users in the same boat.   Heck if they charged 400 points for the Dark Corners Map Pack, they would still be making 800 points extra off of folks like me.

What I hate most of all is that I had no clue they were going to release a “All in one” collection of maps for GoW2 early on.  If I had known I would have gladly waited to this day, but because they are so inconsistent in what they will release, when they will release it, and worst of all in being consistent and fair about pricing… we, the consumer wind up feeling the business end of the shaft at MicroShaft…. screwed.   Yet again.
