That's a lot of $ @ $60 a pop. I heard that this game released DLC the same day the game itself was released. If DLC is not included in the game it belongs in the shitter. Come on, day 1 DLC? I will wait until the GOTY edition comes out @ $30. I did say that about the first 2 though and haven't played any of them.
