Shadowrun strategy videos will cost you


Available for purchase off the Marketplace are four brand spanking new Shadowrun video strategy guides that'll teach you sniping locations, teleporting lines and the quickest way to get to the artifact in each map. Very useful information indeed. But the negative cloud surrounding these downloads is that they cost 100 Microsoft points apiece. We're sure these Shadowrun videos showcase only the most special and uber elite strategies, what we call the metaphorical prime cut of the strategic cow, but can't bring ourselves to plop down the cash to find out. Now that we think of it, this content smells eerily similar to those COG tag location videos. Overpriced and, with a quick Googling, completely unnecessary.

3. what they don't realize is that the loss of goodwill resulting from this gouging of noobs is much greater than any short term profit they may reap.

between the freaking nickel and diming and the rampant 360 failure rate, m$ is screwing their chance to achieve next-gen console dominance. f%$king idiots.

4. That's the same way I feel Pete. I know both Sony and Nintendo do it with their arcade titles but MS is really going crazy with the DLC. I feel insulted every time I look through the Marketplace and what they have the nerve to ask $$ for. The "goodwill" that I once had for the MS and it's partners is gone. The 360 has become more of a blackhole to throw money into then a gaming machine. When I started gaming many years ago I never thought I'd be ask to pay for some of the things MS has the nerve to attempt to charge for. If anything all these price tags has made me buy less and has cheapend(is that a word?) my Gold memebership. The only advantage of being a Gold memeber is multi-player that the other consoles give away for free.
