This really isn't any different to any other DLC for any other game. It's not like it's on disc content and the car packs are just extras, you don't need them to complete or enjoy the game. Gamers' "principles" can be very masochistic and puritanical sometimes.
While I can see your point, but I still disagree, If you consider cars to just be an extra, then guns are just an extra in an FPS, Activision could start selling guns as DLC for CoD as you don't need them all to complete or enjoy the game.
and whether it was on disc or not doesn't really matter, it is just more of a slap in the face if it is, but it is still content held back to make more money.
I'm not saying I can't understand why they do it.
and it is a principle to buy games that don't do this, and avoid ones that do. as the only thing I can do is vote with my wallet.
But makes me wonder if they would sell more copies in the first place if the cars were all free. Why not have all DLC free for people who buy the game new, and if you buy it second hand you pay?
