The Death of Video Games: Part 1 – DLC

WWC: "Today I discuss Downloadable Content, or DLC for short. Unless you have been living under a rock for this whole console generation, this should ring a bell, whether or not you’ve purchased some. The idea behind DLC is to give customers more game content, such as extra multiplayer maps, more campaigns, different costumes, etc. I’ve personally bought some DLC, I’m not going to lie. What’s wrong with giving players another reason to play your game? Well, in theory, nothing; in practice however, things have gone awry." (Activision, Batman: Arkham City, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Capcom, Industry, PS3, Street Fighter x Tekken, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Xbox 360)
