Be happy you didn't pre-order it like yours truly.

I'm really sad face about the 1st one... open world chases, sniff. And the 911... I wanna hit someone.

As reported by Eurogamer, PC gamers needn't lose hope for a little DLC love, with Criterion quoted as saying, "We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience, but on the positive side we do have more updates and content on the way for PC players - look for news very soon."

Oh guys don't overreact to this. We were all worried about the DLC of the Xbox360 and PS3 that EA decided to put 3 free cars in the Patch 2. Maybe this time we will get a new "patch" but with brand new cars...if not let's get EA! lol just joking :lol:

Nah but seriously, be calm, probably we may get some stuff in this year :) At least I'm glad I have fun with Criterion rather than FailBlackBox lol

Well ok, I do not regret having bought Hot Pursuit. The game gave me lots of fun for more than 40 hours, and it is definitely the best NFS I played in the past 5 years (excluding SHIFT which was also very entertaining).

But this DLC thing just gets on my nerves! Especially because they (Criterion) come up with really stupid excuses, like "we don't have enough staff to port a bunch of cars and events to PC". They could very well say "we don't release DLC on the PC because everyone would just download it for free". Period. I wouldn't like anyway, but at least they would have a valid reason, because let's be honest, all this DLC would probably be pirated, even people who have the original game would think twice before paying for the DLC. I still think they would get profit for it though. That's why they gave us those 3 cars, they were meant to be free since the beginning! If it's free then there's enough staff to port the DLC, if it's payware "oh, we don't have enough staff, we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience".

@GT3x24x7: They said that more than 2 months ago. Do you really think they will ever care about the PC again? Hot Pursuit on the PC is dead for them I bet. And the DLC for the consoles is probably coming to an end too after these 3 DLC, seeing that they already sold enough copies of Hot Pursuit to break even and get a good profit, and also because SHIFT 2 is closing in and EA want people to buy SHIFT 2 when it comes out, not DLC for Hot Pursuit.

Countach chassing F1...

I take it back, I'd have to be retarded to pay for this. You can keep your exclusives, EA.
