Never going to happen. Companies are too greedy.
any company focused on console will monetize everything. Even 360 fans have to pay for minecraft skins..
in fact!

You have to pay for licensed skins, like Master Cheif, or Cole Train, but the skin pack has several skins (like a King, or Knight) that are free.
Also Xbox and 4J just released a bunch of free skins through Microsoft's Summer Arcade promotion.

Wow that's something interesting that I did not know about.

Wanting to make money ≠ Greed.

Dlc made entirely Post Release, and priced reasonably is fine.

On Disk Dlc, or DLc made before the game is Gold is Greedy.

I'm afraid that it'll take more than free dlc to dethrone Call of Duty.

EA doesn't give away free DLC. Aside from Mass Effect 3.

Evidently you didn't buy Bad Company 2. Everyone who pre-ordered and bought the game got 4 free map packs.

If its "free" like the did with BF3 not likely. I mean look back at BF3... all the pre-ordered "limited edition" versions got Back to Karkland free and after that is was NOTHING on the DLC front for months. They need a much more consistent release plan for DLC... and here is an idea EA. Why not just release 1 map a month for say $3 instead of waiting for months and they trying to get us to pay $15 or buy your $50 a year Elite Clone? I would buy up a $3 map in a heart beat.

Why just EA??Every company should.

Treat you customers right and they will come back.Treat them wrong and you can watch them leave.

How many customers are going to turn their backs on DLC en-mass? I believe there are enough drones who don't care about paying for new content to keep the model rolling.

I don't know why they didn't have a v.i.p pass like bad company, that would've been so much better, but I guess its all about making money.
Hufandpuf  +   823d ago
the V.I.P pass was really just something to hold us over while they got the MOH 2010 multiplayer done, thats why we got Vietnam so late.

Battlefield, much like CoD, has proven that it can make the sales required to make the need for profit on dlc . . . well . . . unneeded. They really have no worries in terms of covering the cost of the game.

If they did sell their dlc for free, I think it would create a lot of good will in terms of the series. Which is a very, very good thing.

This, however, will never happen.
yoyo12121  +   823d ago
The game would cost $100 if this happened

Valve already does this. There updates are big enough to seem like DLC.
Buljo  +   823d ago
Nope. Short and simple.

I don't think its the DLC that changes things. People are already buying the game regardless of DLC. I would be that your average consumer doesn't even know what DLC is, or just buy the game an play it a few times, never downloading any extra content. You would most likely see a boost in sales, but I would guess 10% max.

I am going to go on a limb and say this will never happen. EA sucks
