Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:
No. You don’t HAVE TO buy additional content. If you WANT TO buy additional content, you may.
You don’t have to buy a color DMD with colorized game content. If you find value in that additional content you may buy it.
Sure, but when does "stuff that should have come with the purchase price or in the past as a free update" suddenly become "additional content". For a product at this price point, you shouldn't have to worry that you won't get the full experience.
I'm not saying are absolutely going this, but it is starting to sound like the EA model of games, where you pay for 60% of a game and then have to pay more to "unlock" the rest.
