    The only DLC I have is for Rock Band...

    This is how I see it. Thanks to GameStop I paid $2.99 for Rock Band, $9.99 for Rock Band 2, and $15.99 for Rock Band 3. I imported the RB and RB2 setlists to RB3 allowing me to have 250 playable songs without changing discs. I have purchased 250 songs spending about $450. At 500 playable songs, I paid about $1.04 per song. Totally worth it.
  2. My experience with DLC's has been poor, they alwase have been half-baked and underdeveloped. Community content was and is where the action is at. Mass Effect 2, most of the DLC's were paying for EA to experiment with ME3's development, Arrival was in particularly poor taste-It's the starting point for the upcoming release, and yet you have to buy it in addition to the game to understand the flow of progress. Yet, moreover it lacked the typical post-mission integration. The news reports and dialog wasn't there-You blow up a solar system killing 400,000 civilians and mot a blip of recognition after the mission. I was further appalled at Microsoft splitting Age of Empires III at Release, For each title you purchased you received 1 campaign, and minimal increases in maps or civilizations.
