These "exclusive early DLC" debacles need to stop. I don't know how much money is exchanging hands in these sorts of deals, but honestly its isolating half of your fanbase. You can't just show up a month later saying, "you still want this?".
And now, to add salt to the wound, this shit happens. As a PS3 owner (haven't experienced these "crippling" bugs at all), they've lost my purchase.
