Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Apr 21, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Last week we announced Killzone 2′s first downloadable map pack, “Steel & Titanium.” In case that’s not ringing a bell, take a look at this new trailer for the two-map set:

Today we can also confirm that “Steel & Titanium Pack” will be available on the PlayStation Store next week (April 30th) for $5.99.

Too much i mean come on. There is two maps but you want us to pay 10% of the games price? I mean ther eis no ligic in this if you had sold it with 4.99 or 4.95 i would have bought it. I have never used the PSN store and I will not if you want me to pay 6 dollars for it but because I live in EU you probably charge 6 euros for it. I do not know if the 5.95 dollars is the 10% over the sea but here the 6 euros is.

How will the DLC affect those who do not buy it? Will they just be kicked out of the room when either of those two maps are selected for the next round?

The complaint about $6 isn’t that 6 is a lot of money, the COD4 map pack was $10. It is that the maps are slightly overpriced.

COD4 had a per map cost of $2.50 ($10/4 maps). Resistance 2 had 3 maps for $5 so it was about 1.67/map. So the per map cost is higher than the other SCE published titles or even one of the most popular shooters ever.

Beyond that, $5 is a normal increment for the psn wallet where 6 isn’t.

156..killzone 2 isnt cod4/r2…dev costs are probably higher, and it still sounds pretty petty to complain about $1 or $2

ok you people need to stop whining, this game is prob the best ps3 exclusive ive played. If you feel like this is a rip off dont buy it, its that sample you cant go through life expecting everything to be free like little kids. i make 6.55 an hour in 1 hour i can make enough to get this game. This game is M rated so you sould be mature enough to know how to make money and not whine. this game gets more updates than alot of games and dlc this early on is very good. the only game that compares to be better than this game online is cod4, this game could be just as good if they add prestige even then it still is awesome.

Personally, I think it would of been much better if it was three maps. Then it would definitely be worth it even with out the trophies.

@rAdIOhEad73

Who are you kidding…complainers being mature?

I’ve yet to read that in ANY post on the PS Blogs. It’s always some one crying about not getting hand outs.

Our hobby is a luxury and not a necessity. I suggest those complaining do something constructive with their money…like buy a happy meal.

Hey,

I’m hoping for a fair price in Europe, may I remind that $1 does NOT convert to 1€ but 0,77€.

I’m hoping for 4,99€, not more, even if it should be more about 4,59€. (to be accurate, 4,62€ but that won’t happen)

And for the UK, I think a nice price would be £3.99…

Anyways, the pack looks good. Someone talked about new trophies, if that’s true, it great.

Granted, we’d love to have it free, or even at $2.99. Honestly though, why the hell are people complaining about $6? It’s a damn combo at McDonald’s… Six damn dollars for how many hours of enjoyment? People whine just for the hell of it.

lame. two maps from campaign for $6? no buy.

Since they always lower the pounds sterling price, I agree that the Euro price should reflect the exchange rates with the dollar that have been pretty consistant over the past year or so.

+ NyPrince on April 21st, 2009 at 1:03 pm said:

Ill pass, Killzone2 sucks, has to be one of the worst FPS I’ve played.. It has to be up their with Soldier of fortune payback as most worst. I can’t believe the bad games get support super fast with DLC to trick people into buying their trash game.

+ Thrasher20 on April 21st, 2009 at 1:09 pm said:

Well I guess $5.99 is a bit reasonable. Better than paying $10 IMO. The maps look really fun especially the Vekta Bullet. I loved that level in single player. It feels like you are running uphill since the train goes so fast. Well, great job Guerrilla. Will be thinking of getting this..

I’m a serioud Killzone 2 fan, like many others in here. And I’ll pass too, like many others in here.
Charging 6$ for two maps is a bad joke.

@168

Aww Look at the cute little troll!

First day purchase for me. 5.99 now seems like a steep investment, but down the line the money spent will be well worth it.

+ stack0487 on April 21st, 2009 at 1:16 pm said:

This should be free. Everything should be free on the PNCCPBM, the Playstation Network Charity for Cheap People who Bi.tch and Moan. Waa Waa Waa. Get a job, loser.s.

Some of the comments here are downright baffling. Kudos to today’s video game developers for continuing to tolerate a thankless consumer base.

While I think $6 is a LITTLE high for 2 maps, I’ll probably pick these up… especially if there’s trophies. Haven’t really played the online since getting my Valor Grand Cross kindof wore me out on Killzone 2, but this is as good a reason to get back into it than any!

People need to stop complaining about the price, if you don’t like, the solution is simple… Don’t purchase it.

For me, the price is satisfactory, and if you actually have a job, $5.99 is nothing (you pay more for a meal in alot of restaurants).

Even then… I’m sure you can scrap some lunch money together if you really want it XD

If you worked for the same amount of time you all spent bit.chi.ng and moaning about the $6 price tag, you’d have earned enough money to buy it. Ch.ris.t, get a life. Also, the moderation on this forum is a bad joke.

Sony never fails to disappoint. 2 maps for $6? After the flop Socom Craponexpectations turned out to be I thought maybe Killzone 2 might be the game to justify my PS3 purchase. It’s a good game, but I’ll pass on 2 extra maps. Come on Sony, wake up!

+ SnakeStrife on April 21st, 2009 at 1:36 pm said:

Seems a bit too expensive for 2 maps. I think $3.99 would probably be the right price range for me.

I’m truthfully comparing the DLC price from this to MGS4. For $11.99 You can get the Gene DLC, which adds 3 new maps, 2 unique playable characters (which includes 2 unique new weapons), Survival Mode, Adds Female Character Creation, and pretty much opens up the Reward shop (Further Customizable characters)

Being half the price then the 1st DLC for MGO this doesn’t seem like it has half the content it has.

oh man, i can’t believe how much people are really let down by this, a stupid rumor led to these comments, its pretty sad that you people cannot grasp the fact that not everything is free man, sonys online is free, $6 for 2 maps is very reasonable…


193

+ Roverxk9 on April 21st, 2009 at 1:41 pm said:

I’ve always thought paying for MP maps or modes didn’t make much sense. If i buy it and my friends dont, I’ll still be playing on servers without the maps.

Automatically the population for these maps are impacted, so you’ll have fewer servers running them and they will be either crowded or empty.

Maybe im just crazy…also 5.99 for two maps? I asked myself the question, would I pay 5.99 for four new maps? And the answer was still maybe…

Hey 191…. the unreal titan pack was free which added a buuunnch of maps/trophies/fixes, etc.. so that means every company has to put out things for free right?

I refuse to pay for map packs, don’t care how much I love the game. Give me content that doesn’t depend on others having it to enjoy it. I don’t want to waste money or time if not enough people are going to get it.

blah im done, GG great job, good price and keep the content coming!!

+ Tailsnakes on April 21st, 2009 at 1:46 pm said:

I’ll pass, two maps for $6 is a huge ripoff when you have games like UT3 giving you 19 maps for free. I don’t expect a huge pack like UT3′s for free in every game, but this is just ridiculous.


199

+ Roverxk9 on April 21st, 2009 at 1:47 pm said:

@192 good point, i should probably take that into consideration. However i’d rather pay for if it meant more “free updates.” Not to mention cross gaming voice chat…its so annoying to log into teamspeak / ventrilo on my laptop just to have a constant voice chat open with friends.

Honestly though since not everyone wants to pay, maybe they should make separate packages like 360 where people that pay for the PSN account sometimes get free DLC.

Sry for second rant…
