If there is one thing I hate when I open up a new DVD or Blu-Ray case, it's when there is an ad for a Special Edition of the same film that I bought coming out in a few weeks/months. A new edition with all the crazy extra features and extras that I wanted in the one I just bought. The kicker is when they advertise this new version for the same price as the one I just bought. It always leaves me burned by the company.
Well looks like Media Molecule didn't want to miss out on the "Burn! Here's the version you were looking for in the first place." Well not exactly, but that is how it feels with the announcement of the Game of the Year Edition version of LittleBigPlanet.
For the price we all paid for the game when it first came out ($59.99 USD), who ever doesn't own this gem of a game already can get it with all kinds of extras. Some of them we could already access via the online sharing section of the game, but that's not the free $30 of DLC that us true fans have paid for already. Oh, and early access to ModNation Racers as well. Here's a list from the PlayStation Blog:
So there you go. All of us that helped support this game to make it game of the year get screwed while they go for more money. 7 DLC packs for free. The box for the game even tells you that you are getting $30 worth of free things because of the original fans shelling out the cash for the game and DLC from day one. Just like how takes work and welfare gets abused. The responsible pay so that people who had no care for things can reap the benefits later on. Got to love this right? Look for it to piss off fans on September 8th.
