Default Re: Why DLC is the Future...

and what would happen if no-one would buy it. publishers would realize that DLC system doesn't work. Buying DLC just gives them a green light to milk and screw over the customers as much as possible.

Just like people shouldn't pay for LIVE, and LIVE gold would die as well.

Problem is that if there is no other alternative then they are stuck with it. People want MP and they are willing to pay for it. Does it suck? Yup but it's not like they can choose to go with another service.

Same goes with expanding a game through DLC... console gamers don't really have a choice on how to expand a games life.

It wont be long till DLC expands more on the PC, systems like Steam and Windows Live make it easy to offer.

I dont want it, most dlc i could care less about.. it adds not much extra i want games that last for its fullprices and not buy extra maps or whatever a few months after the game is out.
