Now they want to sell water? Who is behind this move? Aquafina?
All that stuff is cosmetic and you can still play all the levels, right? (Besides the map packs)
So whats the problem?
If you want to own every stupid costume, it's your prerogative; but as to why it's a bad idea for them to make unlimited variations of stuff and sell them for nickels you got me scratching my head. My guess is you will be able to play others water levels, just not use it to build unless you buy the "water pack", which undoubtedly contains new LBP stamped levels. To use a Valve analogy, it would be like paying for Episode 1 or 2 to get access to the new props and optimizations to the source engine that were used in them. granted, water is fundamental in most games off the bat, but I don't fault them if they didn't think of adding it in till later when they were brainstorming ways to keep the game fresh and support it.
Do you get mad because you can't own everything every time you step into a mall?
