Usually I don't get worked up about things like these. I understand people need to earn a buck and DLC will exist for those who wish to purchase it. The reason why $99 microtransaction DLC's in full retail games never bothered me was because all of it was always optional. Abstergo credits and such were just shortcuts. I never felt shortchanged for not purchasing DLC for a full game.
What Bungie did with Destiny's new DLC seems unethical to me on many levels. I've talked about this in several places so I'll just copy and paste this next part from another thread.
What is absolutely insane and what no one from the games press seems to be talking about is that instead of making completely new playlists for people with the DLC - it replaces existing content. So for instance (as is the case this week) if the Weekly Strike and the Nightfall Strike are both taking place on DLC missions then people without the DLC basically don't get to do a weekly or nightfall strike for the entire week. Essentially if you didn't buy the new DLC, you are getting blocked off from content that was part of the base game for which you've already paid. They've reduced the amount of content available to you if you didn't buy into their "additional" content.
IF you're a high level Destiny player then Weekly and Nightfall strikes are essential. The nightfall gives you bonus XP as well as a chance at exotic drops while the Weekly heroic strike will net you 9 strange coins which are used to purchase exotics from a vendor that appears once a week.
But forget about that for a second. The bigger issue at hand is that up until the Dark Below was released I was doing weekly and nightfall strikes as part of the base game I purchased. Now, every once in a while when those DLC maps get put into rotation I will get blocked off from doing them. I will suddenly not have access to parts of the game I've paid for.
I really think this is something that @patrickklepek should be writing about since there were articles covering the Unity chests - except in this case it's actual core content that is blocked off unless you give them more money - core content that you already paid for.
