SO the new $20 DLC is a single locomotive..

And a couple scenarios?

Man I know people love their sims, but good god that's crazy.

I think it's time valve put a foot down and made it mandatory that DLC on steam actually have to contain something if it's going to cost $20.

Does seem a bit high, but not far off what we see in FSX land even today and after the fact ACES studio closed.

There is a class 2p over on the Digital Traction site for under $10.00 US.

Anyone who pays that much for this "dlc" is beyond crazy. They're on the virge of needing serious help.

I'm sorry but I agree with the others...there's got to be some kind of guidelines. If people are dumb enough to pay this much for a train, they're all gonna get the idea it's okay. And it's not okay. There's a fine line between capitalism and thievery.

This is highway robbery.

For $20 you can buy FOUR excellent games on Steam. Geometry Wars, Civilization 3, Freedom Force, and Railroad Tycoon II for instance. Or, you could buy a single sloppily-modeled engine for a buggy game. Think.

Actually you can find virtually any plane you want for free for FSX. Or virtually any train you want for free for Trainz2009 for that matter.

I haven't got this game but just had to post. I just seen the price on the main page and thought it was disgraceful which it is.

This game is simulator so it is quite normal that prices are higher. Those who have serious hoppies what has something to do with trains, quite likely pays and since those hobbyist are fewer in world, prices are higher.

This is not football etc simulator what everyone would buy and would have more standard prices.

However since games are overpriced anyway (49,99€ from new games like FPS, RTS, etc), I can see those who are not very much for train simulators, would not pay to test if they are interested from train simulators to pay such prices to play them (including me).

Even for a simulator it's stupidity to expect people to pay that much for a single locomotive addon. Really there's no justifying of it nor defending it.

What's the big deal, millions spend ~$15 a month playing some stupid game...warcraft something or other. Don't like it, don't buy it. Why should Valve regulate what's 'good' and what isn't? And HOW would they for that matter?

People spend THOUSANDS on dual and triple SLI machines, what's 20 bucks for a DLC if they actually enjoy it? Last I checked no one is forcing anyone to buy this overpriced garbage.
