    I know this is the DLC model dovetail uses on PC but i dont think console gamers will like this or get used to it. And i dont even agree with the DLC model to begin with 1 route for 2/3rds the price i paid for 3 that just doesnt add up.

    Yep. I don't care where they get their price model from though, I'm not paying it anymore. I paid for the the founders edition, then for the deluxe edition upgrade when it came out only 6 or 7 weeks ago, which is now on sale for £32 on the MS Store, and they want £19.99 for this alone. Not even a discount for having a MS Gold account or for being a founders edition early uptaker.

    Thanks, but no thanks. Customer lost.

    You know you don't have to buy everything, right?

    Well, these routes (WSR and RSN) are technically considered add-ons. And unlike many other games on consoles, it's your choice if you want it or not. As MCGermanyFan points out, you don't have to buy everything they offer.

    Oh and CFDIEGO88 TSW is like a model railway. You don't pay for small things, you pay for a whole new route which obviously costs more than $10. I suspect you are an average console player who plays games like GTA and so on. But TSW is something completely different than that.

    I play a variety of games on PC PS4 and XBOX ONE. And i havent played gta for about a year so you can drop your idiotic PC master race agenda.
    I get that train sim world isnt like other games and you just buy what you want. But the majority of console gamers wont like this they are as you said casuals. This game has to sell on consoles as most of the hardcore fans are on pc. I just think this model wont work on consoles where 90% is not accustomed to it.

    Despite all that i still beleive there is no reason why a route should cost 2/3rds the price of the base game. This is just greed to me. A priced marked up to make maximum profit off of your fanbase and i dont like it. And yes i know i dont have to buy it but actually did want this route. But the price has put me off.

    Guess what? TS18 costs $30 and DLC cost $40. With TSW it makes sense that the DLC cost that much because it is a lot of work to create things for that game.

    Yes I get how the business model works. I dont agree with and i think its crap and i dont think it will work with 90% of console gamers thats my point.

    Just to make it clear that the prices on console versions is pretty much the same value as the PC version. Whether or not you like it, that's how it is for TSW

    CFDIEGO88 so what price do you think it should sell at - what do casual players think is reasonable?

    Personally I’m not a big fan of comparing the base game price to DLC as often games makers will make the ‘starter pack’ cheap to get people involved. But I do get your point about add ons needing to be competitive. In the end people ‘budget’ and cost is a factor as in anything.

    On the PC side, and in particular on Steam people are used to very significant sales at regular intervals. Those sales often don’t include the latest DLCs, you generally need to wait a couple of sales cycles for them to be included. However the PC crowd know how it works and takes advantage of it.

    I would have thought it likely in the future that DTG will offer sale prices on older add ons, but the new ones may come at full price.

    On it being the same price on the PC as I’ve said before if the console versions lack features that the PC version has (the upcoming editor) to me the console versions should be cheaper.

    I don't know how works pre-order in console, but why DTG couldn't do it like in steam? If you pre-order, you will pay 10% less, for example

    At the end of the day this is how it is. You dont have to buy it however if you dont Dovetail might realize there is no money in console porting. Therefore they move back to just pc. Yes id like it cheaper however i pay it so i can support dovetail and hope in the future they a) will bring more content to console b) maybe reduce dlc prices and c) show other simulator game studios that markets on console are just as profitable as those on pc. If not we all lose out!

    I know I don't have to buy it and with this price model I'm not.

    It was the same with Euro Fishing. Obviously content takes time but with that they wanted £7 to £8 for just a single fishing area. Hardly required a vast amount of resources and development for that...

    Cheesypuff2 , i agree with you. Actually i already bought it yesterday. But the main thing that would be great to have almost the same like on pc. There are pre-order for two weeks.
    Also on consoles need to improve graphic in the cab. I could compare it because i have TSW on PC and could run just on low settings.. And on consoles actually almost the same graphic(but this is another topic)

    I'll be buying the DLC I want, but I'll wait till it's on sale just like I do on TS on PC.

    But haven't we already established the console version is cut down from the PC version? No Heavy Haul, less traffic etc.. so shouldn't prices reflect this?

    I read somewhere on the forum that the recent patch made the HSTs (I think) longer. I think it said there were 4 passenger cars but now they are 6. Could be wrong though.

    The cost is a rip off

    The cost is not a rip off, I believe what we are paying in cost is fare for the amount of time put into making the route.

    It sucks, but that's how it is.

    On 'Train Simulator 2018' for PC, I usually wait till the DLC I want is on sale, then buy it. I've only got about 5 DLCs total for it. I'm not interested in everything. I mainly buy Japanese routes, which there aren't many of.

    Only buy the DLC you want, it's as simple as that. TSW is a niche game, it's never going to sell in the millions like COD or GTA so they have to price DLC to take that into account and the effort they have put into it. I'm glad they are making this game (and DLC) for console as i don't have a PC powerful enough to run TSW and probably never will.

    You have to realise Simulators aren’t like racing games or shooting games where lots of people play it. The amount of people who play simulators is small. End of the day they have to pay their workers because they don’t work for free. If you find it a rip then don’t buy it and moan because I’ll like to see you make a Sim game.

    To play devils advocate, it technically IS cheaper than the PC, because each time they release something on console, they have to pay licence fees to Microsoft or Sony. And as somebody has pointed out, these won't sell in anything like the numbers that a shooter or racing game will - they have to pay the wages somehow.

    My only gripe with the cost, is that there aren't that many scenarios to play through, taking into consideration the length of the tracks. And of course, if the higher quality assets have been created for the P.C version, then it would be nice for Xbox One X or PS4 Pro users, to have access to those instead. It is quite jarring to be playing some games on the Xbox One X, that look incredible, and then come to this game, and it be a long way off resolution-wise.

    There's a very simple solution to this nonsense: if you don't like the price, don't pay it -- of course, that would deprive you of all the attention you're getting.

    Of course that's an option, but then if enough people took that option, then nobody would be getting any DLC on consoles, because it wouldn't be financially viable to do it.

    Why shouldn't we have the discussion? Should we blindly accept everything at whatever the developers set the price at?

    Much as I like the game, it's certainly not without it's faults and as said above, why can't we get an X/Pro enhanced version? By all accounts both are as powerful as a reasonable PC.

    Well for me personally I'm happy to keep buying it in order to encourage them to keep releasing stuff on console. I'm on the lookout for a new laptop to get back into TS 2018, but until then this tides me over nicely.

    [QUOTE = "MCGermanyFan, post: 48984, member: 4425"] Devinez quoi? Le TS18 coûte 30 $ et le DLC, 40 $. Avec TSW, il est logique que le contenu téléchargeable coûte autant car il faut beaucoup de travail pour créer des choses pour ce jeu. [/ QUOTE]
