Why shouldnt it be? Its basically the same game with improvements.

With added content.

If you already have the original game, this optional content comes at a reduced price.

You’re simply part of the misguided entitled bunch.

You accept stuff like this, and this is why the industry is how is it today.

I accept that it is optional and that I am not entitled to that content for free when it wasn’t created for free.

People shouldn’t have to pay for game expansions or DLCs now?

In some cases, the manner by which the publisher go about that is sketchy, with content being ready at launch, but not included in the base game and sold on day one.

But in this case, that content was created after the game launched. Why should it be given for free? Sure, free is always nice. But the dev owes you nothing for what they spent money to produce. It is optional, and you get to decide if the experience is worth investing 10 more bucks or not.

Add to that the fact the actual game is selling for less than the original release and you can’t help but conclude some of you are simply whiny and self-entitled.

Thats how its been for PC games for quite some time now. Your attitude is the reason companies get away with charging more for things you already own. You already have to pay to access the Multiplayer of your games, something you already own, now they want to charge you for improvements? No Man Sky and Sea of Thieves constantly bring out free context. Keep supporting it, go pay the extra, i wont.

I support it when it’s done right. But you hypocritically support it/defend it or not on a "partial" basis. So your words are as shallow as your argumentative skills.

It really should be, considering how we owners of Skyrim got SE for free, same with Bioshock 1-2 owners as well. other games in the past were literal file updates on PC and were given for free.

Gamers just love being ripped off. No wonder companies get away with so much.

This is why our hobby is just going to end up ripped to pieces and sold to us at a premium over time.

So glad I'm getting back into art/drawing, because this hobby isn't going to be very sustainable for me, looking at how much is being gotten away with.

If the game sold millions and made a lot of money , sure. But I think death stranding struggled abit with sales, so I wouldn't mind paying that little extra to help support kojima, and considering the amount of gameplay and amazing game it is.

A game not selling well isnt my fault or yours. Free content also helps boost sales. Thats why games like No Man Sky turned it around. They offered content after content for free and it blew the game up even further.

I don't think they expect much sales from it, but they expect more people to pay for the upgrade. And they will, because it's an amazing game with many gameplay hrs. It's worth it. There are many games priced the same that don't offer the same value.

Give the companies an inch now, and watch them take a mile in the future.

Come on now. This is kojima we are talking about. The guy deserves a lil, if we expect him to be able to take risks in the future and make more games like this.
