Nintendo doing DLC ???

I will be to busy playing Smash Brothers.

Now I have seen it all Nintendo whoring out content that should have been in their game ???

So glad I sold this, fun, pretty, but it just didn't do it for me.

@StephenSays DLC isn't automatically "whoring out content". at some point the game has to go gold, and if the company wants to keep pushing content for that game, then DLC comes in. price it right, give quality content in the original package and on the DLC, and there's nothing to complain about.

just because a lot of companies tarnish the concept of DLC doesn't make it inherently bad. honestly, 13 bucks for a bunch of characters and vehicles and four new cups (practically 50% more content) is pretty cheap.

I don't think they cut it out. Looking at the game it is just as complete as every other Mario Kart. Also with 3 characters, 4 carts and 8 tracks * 2 DLC packs make the DLC like a new game
