The DLC Debate: Part 2 – DLC Gone Bad

Excerpt:

"The other half of the dark spectrum of DLC is the idea of day one content, or on disc content. Day one DLC is where an add-on for the game is available on the day of the game’s release, which raises the question of why it wasn’t included in the base game. This does ignore the fact that a significant amount of time may pass between a game being finished and the game hitting shelves, however. On disc DLC takes this one step further by including content on the game’s disc, or in the game’s original package, that cannot be accessed without downloading an unlock code for an additional charge. The most famous example of this was Javik in Mass Effect 3, a squad mate that was on the disc and could be unlocked by exploiting the game a little, but was not officially playable without the From Ashes DLC for the game. Bioware’s Mike Gamble stated that because of Mass Effect 3’s storytelling style, it was impossible to simply shoehorn in an additional character through DLC only" (EA, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Team Fortress 2, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Xbox 360)
