Here's the blog post:
If you want to get all additional taunts as an example you already have to spend nearly 11$/ € !
Why not make a bundle for all taunts for like 4.99$/ € ?
Same for all the other customizable pieces. How about some character bundles, like Drake's headgear, Chloe's headgear etc.
No way I spend 50€ for all the separate DLC content. And there is 3 more stages of additional DLC! Even if some of them will be the old ingame unlockable content. What will be the total cost? 150$/ €? That's ridiculous!

We were promised to get hundreds and hundreds of costumization parts for the 60 bucks that we paid for Uncharted 3. The stuff was not in the game. ND fooled us with their advertising, more or less. And now ND wants to make us pay again and on top of that, not just a few dollars/euros but almost the price of the full game... for things that should have been available right from the start?!
This and the fact that they've included a new tournament system where by if most people wanted to get the djinn skin they'd have to pay money for extra tickets is why i think that ND are now only in it for the money and not the fans
This is a total steal. I mean, 1$ for a simple taunt?!
Heck, every price higher than 20 cents for a simple customizable piece is too much.
Oh and yes, they probably have the excuse to say "But these items are special because have stats!". Stats that we didn't even ask for. We simply wanted to have new customizable options unlockable via treasures set or via in-game cash, not real cash, something that would let us have more fun with our favorite main characters. And, you know what, the customization reserved to main characters is the only customization that we need to pay.
Yes, they've been smart, no doubt about this.
Why would you need all the new taunts if you can use only one at time? Just pick the one you like the best and buy it.
Not the point. Some people would even buy them just to have everything unlocked.
The fact that we have to pay so much for sub-par customization - which we should've had at launch anyway - is just ridiculous. I appreciate that ND is finally doing something to make the game more enjoyable and accessible, but charging $60 for add-ons is one of the reasons that everybody hates their (and more importantly, Sony's) marketing.
Thanks but no thanks; I'll settle for what we have already, despite it not being what we wanted.
