No season pass with Final Fantasy 15’s $270 Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Final Fantasy XV fans are already disappointed over last week's announcement of the release date delayed by two months, but now comes the news that the game's most lavish package, the $270 Ultimate Collector's Edition, does not include the recently confirmed DLC season pass.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the FPS’s latest sub-series

It mostly boils down to two reasons: either they're unhappy that they have to buy the special edition in order to get the remastered version of the beloved CoD4: Modern Warfare, or they don't like the theme changes from modern combat settings to a futuristic, sci-fi story set in space. Unfortunately for those in the latter camp, there's likely to be more Infinite Warfare titles in the coming years.
