This is not true. I have both of those skins and i purchased this game 6 months after my brother got it in 08. The mobius is lethal as hell online. Its funny playing this game almost 10 years later. The rare 1v1's are very exciting. I have maybe 30% of the dlc and still even today i fly against players that have skins and smoke ive never seen.
Scopefox, you'll have to tell us how you got them, because they were pre-order bonuses. Not to mention, the game and all DLC have been removed from the marketplace, so it's not like you can still get them anyway.
