    If you haven't been keeping up with Reddit, some records have been made recently.

    So Battlefront II is upon us, and it's an $80 game. That's fine.
    But if you want any extra characters, you'd better pay. For example: want Darth Vader?

    Then you have to pay $89. More than the game itself for one single character.

    Needless to say, this hasn't gone over very well. In fact, it's gone over so poorly that EA's Reddit account no holds the lowest score in the history of the site. It's -670,000 and falling fast.

    Meh. Impotent Useless Raging. It's a trademark of Reddit.

    EA sets a price. If people buy, then the price was right.

    Most of the whiners on Reddit will also quietly and unannounced buy the damn thing.

    Whining and complaining is also how consumers raise awareness over such things, things which some consumers would keep taking with their heads down if they didn't think anyone else cared.
