I never bought the DLC, a tiny bit of that was because I got a copy to write a review for, but never got around to returning it after all these months. Either way I don't buy DLC unless I really feel that it's more than its money's worth, which has only happened a few times this gen.
So glad I held out, very much appreciated Platinum!

A: Bladewolf and Jetstream Sam are free. Additional costumes are not.
Q: Who's getting the free DLC?
A: All North American users.
Q: Will North America be getting that Japanese version with the DLC included?
A: Not at this time, the only news is the price cut across all retailers to $29.99 and the DLC will be free in North America.
Q: I heard the full game will be free!
A: Yes, to European PS+ members (only).
Q: What about that PC version?
A: Still coming, hold for details.
Q: Where's that Gray Fox skin on PSN?
A: I keep asking the same thing. We're currently putting the paperwork through.
Q: Is the DLC free to new purchasers or everyone?
A: Everyone. YOU get a Bladewolf! YOU get a Bladewolf! AND YOU get a Bladewolf! EVERYONE GETS A BLADEWOLF!
Codes aren't compatible because they're generated based on regional stores for distribution purposes. But the actual downloadable DLC shares the same code as far the US and Asian game is concerned. When I downloaded the free VR Missions DLC from the US store way back, it worked fine with my Asian game. I downloaded the Bladewolf and Jetstream Sam DLCs from the US store earlier too, but I haven't had a chance to test yet.
