With yesterday's talk from EA's CFO saying some people have spent up to $700 on FIFA's Ultimate Team mode, we want to ask you if you've spent money on downloaded online options from sports games and how much?

You can vote on the right on the frontpage and above you in the forums.

Never have and never will.

Not a damn thing lol.

I sometimes will buy map packs for shooters, but I was disappointed with MW2, so I didn't buy the map pack, and Battlefield and Red Dead had free downloadable content if you purchased the game new, so I didn't have to. I don't need Zombies in every single game so I skipped the Undead Nightmare lol. It's also annoying to buy map packs for a shooter, and be in a room with others that didn't, so those new maps you paid for almost never come up.

As far as buying downloadables for a sports game, I can't see myself ever doing that. At least not for what they currently offer like potential or what have you. If they ever made you pay to play online, or for roster updates, which would be things I care about, I would probably just not buy it.

Downloadable content isn't bad, but there are very view DLCs that I feel compelled to buy.

I never buy downloadable content for sports games, but I do buy downloadable content for other types of games cause I feel you get more than you would for something in a sports title. Some of the things EA offers as download content like attribute boosts seem very unnecessary.

I'm with Timmy. The only downloadable contant I have seen is either a boost (ridiculous to use for me, as I only play offline franchise - why would I want to cheat?) or other uniforms (Madden's AFL). If they ever think of something that would be worthwhile (extremely unlikely as long as sports games release every year), I'll consider, but I truly doubt I'll ever buy DLC for a sports game.

I bought both Trials HD map packs for 800 points total.

For NHL 11, I bought the deke +5 boost because it was so hard to achieve normally.

So $12 total.

Sports Games: $0. The only DLC I bought this year was Undead Nightmare and a couple indie games.
 
# 7 Bellsprout @ 12/08/10 01:51 PM
A couple of Skate related DLC packs and that's it.

I bought the disc version of Undead Nightmare, so I'm assuming that doesn't count.

I spent some money on the packs in Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare. I'll only open my wallet further if a) the original game was great, and b) the new content is worth the price.

didn't buy that much. Both MW2 mappacks, some RB2 songs and the classic stadium dlc for The Show. That's it for this year, about 60€ spent overall for dlc.

edit: oh, only sports games. So just the stadium dlc for The Show. How much was that? 10 bucks?

Because Madden's the only game with DLC...

Sports games I don't think I've spent anything on DLC other than whatever it cost for that extra pipeline state in NCAA Football. Non-sports games, I've spent well over $50 this year on Rock Band DLC and other games like Red Dead.

Bought some games but zero add-ons
 
# 15 JohnDoe8865 @ 12/08/10 03:33 PM
If we're talking strictly sports games then $0. Total DLC throughout the year though, dang I don't know, maybe $20-50? Fan Axxess for SvR 2011, Undead Nightmare, Rock Band tracks, Alan Wake expansions, Pinball FX upgrades and tables, etc.

So my vote is ZERO on Sports titles. I'd buy worthwhile DLC for SINGLE PLAYER if any was ever created. I did foolishly buy the AFC Throwbacks last year for Madden 10, so I'm not immune to sports DLC unfortunately.
 
# 16 gottibino @ 12/08/10 03:39 PM
i'd spend $500 just to get the "REAL" sneakers for NBA 2k11!!!
also anything for tiger woods, madden, etc...to enhance the games authenticity

A big fat ZERO! And thanks to EA for releasing a FIFA game that is completely broken. Why would I spend more money on a broken game that EA refuses to fix. If EA ever gets around to fixing FIFA I would certainly look into buying Ultimate Team but right now my game is collecting dust until EA gets around to fixing this mess.

Games are already Over Priced! Never spent on DLC and do not plan on it in the future...

When they lower game prices I'll think about DLC
 
# 19 LingeringRegime @ 12/08/10 05:23 PM
Oops! I misunderstood what this poll was about. I voted for 30-100, but I thought it was downloadable games. $0 for me as well. I hate video game PED's.
 
# 20 EnigmaNemesis @ 12/08/10 05:52 PM
I have purchased things for games like Red Dead Redemption (Undead Nightmare Combo Pack), and Down-loadable Games...

So I chose, Between $30 - $100

(I should have chose $0 since I did not download anything for sports games)
