By my estimation, we've never really seen a free-to-play fighter be attempted (here in the States, anyway). At Gamescom, we finally got the skinny on what our money would get when Killer Instinct launches: the game and Jago for free, $5 per each additional character, $20 for all eight fighters, $40 for those eight plus a bunch of frills (costumes, accessories, and a port of the original KI). I like the pay-what-you-want idea, but I feel like the prospective $40 buyers are getting a tad bit screwed over. Also, with only six fighters at launch (plus two more being added at a later date), you're going to see a lot of the same brawlers online, which could potentially become rather…wearisome. Then again, if all six are solid, it shouldn't matter.
