Looks like they want you to hold onto their game and not sell it back after you complete the main story to stop some used sales. Unfortunately, if the content isn't meaningful people won't hold onto it. Interesting tactic, let's see if it pays off.

Liked the first enough to consider preordering. It's a pretty sweet deal.

But will any of those pieces of DLC make Prototype 2 a good game?

@msavo:No matter how good the content is there is still many people who just run through the main story of games, beat them then trade them in.

Hmmm, they don't mention the PC version?
 
It's still not the type of game I would wait for DLC to come out to play it. Go through story once, done.

as good as I thought Prototype was, it was a one-and-done type of game. There's nothing there to keep you invested in the title unless you really, really liked Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

I didn't even finish the first game. The difficult ramped to such unfun levels near the end that I just uninstalled it. I was apparently only 1-2 missions away from the end, too. It's the only single player game I can remember that I've ever ragequit.

I loved the first game, but I'm still not sure if I will get this one. I just don't like the fact that Alex Mercer is your main enemy :(

Boy did you do the right thing then.
I did not find the endgame hard at all, having had upgraded a lot of my shit. But that last boss fight made me rage nonetheless. Not quit mind you, but I punched my door and swore a lot :)

Can I piece it out when I sell the code(s) on eBay?

I was heavily upgraded from what I remember, but the specific level that made me quit was the one where you start out being chased by the superhuman whatever soldiers and a bunch of helicopters shooting heat seeking missiles at you that caused knockback. So you couldn't fly/wallrun away from them because they'd track you and hit you anyway, and once you lost health you couldn't get on the ground to consume people to heal because the missiles or the superhuman guys would knock you out of the consume animation. 
 
 
Basically, fuck that game.

I'm willing to bet that about 35 of the pieces of DLC are useless commentary vids or "the making of" rubbish.

A couple might actually be worth it though. The skins, for one. The extra weapons and abilities too....

Lol if people start selling aftermarket dlc, pretty soon until we have Pass-like / (DRM-like) codes for DLC

"Use this pass code for your Online/DLC code SO WE KNOW YOU GOT THE DLC CODES LEGIT!!!"

Some challenge based content with leaderboards instead of some weak tacked on multiplayer, Just an incentive for early adopters of the game. Sign me up :) Better then them have it available as day 1 dlc and charging for it
