I see the fat twat is still doing the DLC SCAM!

Look at Fallout 4, click 'See All' under the DLC and note the price to 'Add all DLC to Cart' of £56.93, then look at the Season Pass price of £23.99 that includes all the DLC, so you pay an extra £32.94 for stuff you've already bought in the Season Pass!!

You do know that it's the dev/pub that sets the pricing on the item/items during any sale

But I don't see fat twat/steam doing anything about it seeing as they get a 'cut' of the SCAM! And this isn't about pricing per se, it's about bundling the separate DLC, that the Season Pass contains, all together so you buy the DLC twice!

Sure I can see both points, but as you say, as long as Steam gets a cut then its a Win-Win for both Valve and the Publisher, just not the consumer.

This is why I use the Enhanced Steam plug-in for Chrome, it shows me the savings of a bundle if any, if it shows up as RED then I know there isn't any savings but an extra cost to me.

Just like it's always been when commerce is involved, let the buyer beware.

They just need to make the Season Pass a separate item from the main DLC list, then you either buy the Season Pass or DLC without the pitfall of buying items twice!

I haven't got Chrome installed, the fact it doesn't support Java applets anymore or Silverlight means I'll never use it!

I agree, it should be separate items but it is still up to the consumer to check things out before hand

As for Chrome, well I use multiple web browsers at the same time for this very reason along with others.

So some sites I use only Chrome with and others I use only Firefox and others IE and finally others with Maxthon.

I have at least these four browsers all open at the same time with multiple tabs open in each, it seems that maybe that this overkill but that is how I roll

It's not really up to the consumer to police sites for misleading information though is it? The way 'digital goods' are offered mustn't be ambiguous and must clearly represent what's being sold in a fair and transparent manner, bundling a Season Pass in with all the DLC is neither fair nor transparent!

Regards browsers, I've always used IE and have never needed another browser, as far back as Windows 3.1 I've always used IE, even when Netscape was the popular browser!

Sucks even more that some games don't give you all DLC's in the Season Pass.

Hence the need to separate the Season Pass so you can but it + any DLC that's not included!
