    awesome, can’t wait for the PSN sale

  • madbla

    Does this mean they will actually put up the colors on the European Xbox Live Marketplace? Not that it matters, i can always just add M$ points to my US account.

  • http://nisemonokami.deviantart.com/ NiseKami

    That is totally not right for the people who bought the characters full-priced (like me)…

    • PurpleDoom

      Yeah, though really, how frequent are sales for DLC? I don’t think anyone EXPECTED this. Regardless, I’ll probably pick up the DLC I don’t have (Color packs, Unlimited characters, two of the announcer types) during the PSN sale.

      • Code

        Fairly common from what I’ve seen, at least on 360 it’s usually made more prominent by being displayed on the dashboard when you sign in. On PSN deals like that always seem harder to spot. Personally I’ve just been waiting for the 3 character pack deal which seems like it’ll happen sooner or later.

      I bought them full-priced too, and honestly, it’s no one’s fault but ours. Early adapters always pay more. It’s a fact of life. I may complain about Aksys for a lot of things, but this is not one of them. No one made us buy it first day. That was our choice.

      It’s why I didn’t buy Red Dead Redemption or Fallout: New Vegas and why I won’t buy, say, Dragon Age II first day.

    I’ll get the additional colors now

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1472407455 Charles Lupula

    Okay, so how about an exact date for Platinum?

  • cmurph666

    I waited. I saved. :D

  • DemonicX

    Looks like I’ll be checking out the color packs.

  • eliel

    dam i already bought Valkenhayn, and Makoto i should have waited TT_TT

  • RagnaXBL

    nice IM so glad i held off on buying. was gonna wait for platinum to come out 1st. looks like my patience paid off

  • Aoshi00

    Great, got the butler, will get Makoto later. I almost always buy XBLA games or DLCs when they’re on sale, will get Pigsy’s Perfect 10 for Enslaved later (not that it’s not worth 800 pts, just in no rush to play it).

  • http://otoboku.se manga

    Oh, to bad I already got Makoto and Valkenhayn for the full price :p

    I need to set a schedule. First I get better emotionally and physically, then I try to learn Makoto and Jin better and then I start playing BB like hell.

    Nice sale for those that haven´t gotten them yet :)

  • Arcm

    Looks like I’ll be double dipping to get Makoto and Valkenhayn on both systems.
    Good thing I waited I was just about to download them in an hour.

  • Kris

    DAMMIT! I literally got Valkenhayn days ago!
    This happened with Fate: Unlimited Codes, too. :(

  • PrinceHeir

    i think i’ll just wait for Continuim Shift II(includes all DLC characters and story missions)

    we know it’s coming.

  • andref

    Umm i think thats the wrong date for the xbox live marketplace i was just on today right now at 2:09 AM 12/18 and i saw valkenhayn for 320 points already

    • Nite

      Valk was released for XBL at that price as an apology for all the delay.

      • andref

        oh ok, so that just means we got the price cut early

  • http://myfigurecollection.net/collection/ashgail Ashgail

    Eeeeh, what about European PSN? I can only see Makoto and Valkenhyn without extra colours/voices :(

  • Code

    rar, hooray, I waited and it may have paid off. Although I still kind of wanna wait for a three-character pack, but $5 per character (while still expensive) may be the best I get.

  • http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=2704923 Buntar0

    So using the PS3 prices:
    Buy everything listed, normal prices = $56,90
    Buy everything listed, sale prices = $31,40
    What you save = $25,50

    That’s definitely a lot of money saved.

    What I think of this kind of DLC on the other hand…

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    thank god i only paid 320 for Valkenhayn and used a code to get Makoto (after being a pest to zavvi). Wish they release platinum already :(

  • thebanditking

    I might actually buy these at the reduced price, the characters that is. Paying for “extra” colors is simply asinine, especially since multiple games last gen allowed you to remix your own colors. The prices were ridiculous considering Continuum Shift was already a re-release with more content to begin with.

  • kupomogli

    Additional character colors $2.49? And that’s the sale price. This is why I don’t purchase DLC. Ripoff.
