Did you pass up on checking out Fight Night Champion because you had no interest in anything other than its story mode? Or maybe you couldn’t justify spending $60 on another boxing game that would only hold your interest for a few hours. Well I think EA has a remedy for those problems with one unique solution. EA has recently dismantled Fight Night Champion into various pieces of downloadable content and they are all available on PSN for $5 a pop. So if you were only interested in FNC for its story or maybe another feature, but didn’t quite want to put up $60 for it you now have the option to choose your FNC experience a la carte.
I have always been a big fan of the Fight Night games, but unfortunately never got around to playing Champion for one reason or another. It was never about the price as I usually get my money’s worth from every Fight Night I have played, but now I have a chance to sample a full feature of the game for $5 and will probably satisfy my fix for the game without having to drop full retail on it.
I think this is a great idea from EA and maybe more of their titles will receive the same treatment down the road. Maybe other publishers will follow suit and try this too. I don’t know if this was done because with FNC because of poor sales or EA just needed a test dummy, but I think if implemented well this could become the standard for most games after they have been on the market for certain amount of time.
So what do you think of this latest maneuver from EA? Do you think it’s a good idea that will catch on or is it just another ploy to milk a dying game?
