    The man hours must be high or the company itself is high, either way they need to make them in every color of the rainbow and sell all of the colors for an extra 1$

    Agreed, all collimators are created equal.....but gonna have to disagree on cheap optics being just as good. I have used cheap-o ones, and have been very underwhelmed. Not saying they don't exist, but i haven't found them. Cheap ones i've used don't stay sighted in, if they ever get there. They break, either from recoil impulse, or simply looking at them. In these times where the components to make them are not terribly exotic (lasers, collimators, optic quality glass) perhaps they should not be so pricey....but i have sure been shooting tight groups with that eotech g-33 behind my exps3. Makes shooting sub 200 yards almost too easy. Kinda easier to list a make and model than types and performance specs....but if you got the goods on cheap optics that are just as good or better than expensive ones, then hook us up with the details.

    Incredible.

    There's like two posters commenting on the fact that these things sell, otherwise they wouldn't get produced.

    Rather than blaming greedy corporations, perhaps gamers should be looking in the mirror.

    Worth it if you're on 640 x 480. :p

    Having your own pixel in a popular and exciting game like Black Ops 4; that's when you know you made it in life.

    well , is just business , their idea is "is not stupid who asks the price , is stupid who pays" . This kind of business doesn't lack customers

    So how long until they sell DLC that allows you to buy their other DLC?

    The only reason why this happens is because people allow it. I'm curious of how many of these dots they've sold. The only way they would learn from this is if people don't buy it.

    By selling dots for a dollar, obviously!

    That would be 3 dollar special edition then

    I remember back when companies would sell complete games and only ask for more money when they completed brand new proper content. It was called expansions. Now we get 10% of what each game should have been to begin with, then get to pay bit by bit until we (sometimes) get the full thing through the wonderful DLC system that's infected the gaming world. All for the low low price of several times what a complete game would have cost before.

    Then they (investors and CEOs) bitch that they're not making enough money as beluga caviar drips down their chins as they down some more champagne made from organic grapes grown using only filtered orphan tears. I hope every single one of them gets kicked in the nuts, twice, every day, until they're in hell.

    And seriously, does it even need to be stated, that charging for a different crosshair is way beyond the already beyond disgusting standard corporate assholery, that's some next level BS.

    We all know we are heading to the direction that you only buy the menu screen(full price), and everything else is dlc !
