    Sweet
    mostly because this will mean a price drop on the original which i'm still scrounging ebay for a deal on.

    I got my copy at Gamestop, listed used at $45, but with their card (10% off used games) it was about $40 (+ tax).

    As far as I'm concerned, this update disc had better be $20 or less. I was pretty discouraged when I saw that the original didn't have D/L content. Now we have to pay for that priviledge? But ... since it looks like the new disc will have another campaign, I won't cry if they charge us a reasonable price.

    Man, I bet this thing is gonna have a nice 39.99 or 49.99 MSRP. I'm a bit angry because the current Ghost Recon is great but it needs some work on the online aspect. I'm actually playing the single player campaign more than online which is suprising to me. Color me [​IMG]

    Ugh, I didn't consider the part about not requiring the original game. So that's what they'll use to rationalize a $40-50 price. How lame.

    /me wonders if he should sell back his current copy of GR to help pay for the full version coming out in a few months.

    The price tag is definitely a concern. I personally would like to see a 19.99 price point on the expansion. The most the PC expansion packs retailed for was 29.99 and if the content is worthy the 29.99 is in line with the PC pricing and I would not mind paying it.

    Also as a side note it appears the Ghost Recon patch that has been in the works for awhile is now on live and ready for download. (Havent confirmed yet myself but the forums are buzzing with the news).

    I got the patch and can actually find decent games now. 12 player matches are readily available and it seems to lag less.

    I dunno, I think my GR experience was/is very different from most of yours.

    At $50 it was a great value to me -- hours and hours spent on single player; even more on Live.

    The menus and lobby are poorly thought out. Finding games on Live is often a pain in the butt. I believe only an MS/Ubi partisan would argue to the contrary. Still, I can find games and I have tons o' fun. I got my value with Ghost Recon.

    There is a patch. I d/l'd it. It makes finding games much easier but there doesn't seem to be any changes other than that - nothing to the interface, etc.

    Jay,

    I'm with you - why complain at this point in time?

    [​IMG]

    Added: why be confrontational about this as well?

    So it's going to be $50 for sure?

    I'm more excited about Rainbow Six: Raven Shield.

    I can't remember if that's coming out eventually on the 'Box, or not but, the PC preview on www.gamespot.com looks ALOT better, to me, than the G.R. stuff.
