Would You Buy Co-Op Expansion Packs?

That's the question EA wants to know.  While nothing is set in stone yet, EA is toiling with the idea of having seperate expansions for the game that are specific to what a player wants. The idea came up for the recently released Red Alert 3, and looks like it could actually happen.  Examples of this would be a single player story expansion, or a multiplayer map pack expansion, or even a co-op expansion.

Here's Another Red Alert 3 Celebrity Endorsement

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 is most notable here at Co-Optimus for its tightly integrated co-op campaign, but you must admit the celebrity involvement is unique, as well.  Well known actors like Tim Curry, George Takei, and even Jenny McCarthy play characters in the game.  However, even a Playmate, Star Trek's Mr. Sulu and Rocky Horror's Dr. Frank N. Furter can't hold a candle to the incredible brilliance that is David Hasslehoff.  You heard that right, the Hoff.  He's driven a sweet talking car, jogged in slow motion on a beach, and now he's featured in an over-the-top website promoting Red Alert 3, Conquer This Life.  It's totally bizarre, done in infomercial style, and includes some hilarious bits like "Dolphin vs. Bear" and "It's Braintastic".  The site is definitely worth checking out, for the sheer crazyness factor alone.
