You serve us this as news but never mention Rock Band DLC? Shame on you Giant Bomb.
Because this is news?  Do they really need to post weekly update listing a few songs from bad bands for a game nobody plays any more?
And yet, all those bad bands in that game nobody apparently plays would be far more credible than whatever ex-pre-sale DLC this is.

I think this was to be expected.

@sofacitysweetheart: If they charge us for it, then it will be pretty low.  However, they haven't said that this will cost anything and the developers have actually gone on record saying that all content on the disc will be free, so unless they're back-peddling (which I honestly wouldn't put past them) this is going to be free. 
 
Regardless, it's content people want for a game people play and care about.  So it's still more news worthy than a RB weekly update - anyone who actually does care about that game can easily find the listings anyway, they're plastered all over XBLA/PSN and doesn't the game itself notify you of these things?  Stop complaining about nothing.

best post on Ed Boon's twitter:
 
RT @ steve_64 @ noobde but the psn store is still down! Noobde: It is? Then I guess this is the XBOX exclusive people have been asking for! ;)

Hell fucking yes! Maybe I should be selling my unused Ermac Code from the Kollector's Edition on eBay right now?

Okay? 
 
Well now what do I do with my unused Kitana kostume on PSN? 
 
Seems like it's useless. 
 
 
But really, all I really, really, wanted was the Reptile outfit. Really.

Hope the price is right.  Sucks for anyone buying the Scorpion DLC for a lot of money on EBAY...  But I guess they should know better.

Didn't get an Ermac code in my Kollectors edition, and none of the companies involved helped, so that will be good.

@xhavoc86: I don't see what the big deal is...   Yeah this stuff was on the disc, but it was pre-order bonus content.  No one is pointing a gun to anyone's head and forcing them to purchase this content, and a lot of people won't.
 
They had two choices here, one they could simply never release those costumes to anyone aside from those who pre order, or they could release it and give their players the option of purchasing content if they wish.  In my opinion being given an option is superior to not getting the option.

It's not, but the devs specifically stated there would be no paid on-disc DLC and have implied that the costumes would be available in some way without a pre-order. It would be powerfully lame for them to mislead people.

Five dollars or less, I will probably buy it. Higher than that? No way. The way Street Fighter IV did things was just evil.

I LOLed for real at the "Ain't I a stinker?" line. You rule, Alex.
 
Also, they should probably hurry up with this DLC stuff. People are going to be too distracted by the time E3 rolls around, with their eyes on a million different things for the future.

That's way too expensive for a few costumes that are already on the disc. 
Is Ed Boon going to give us an explanation of why we have to pay for this, after promising they wouldn't do that?
