"Revenue from digitally delivered content grew 108% year-over-year and accounted for 20% of Non-GAAP net revenue, driven by offerings for the Borderlands franchise, particularly digital sales of Borderlands 2, the Grand Theft Auto franchise, the Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise, and Max Payne 3.

Well...the better reception of 2 certainly drove up sales. Even then, the first one sold over 4.5 million ( http://www.gamespot.com//ne...

I loved Borderlands, but I am now no longer going to support the series. I would say Borderlands is everything that is wrong with DLC.

Why so, I feel they did everything okay
4 story DLCs with the season pass (Which states it is only story)
2 Characters which add the variety to the game (And are optional )
and 1 Level add on

Story DLC is decently priced, the characters where great and the one level add on was only $5 (and It included a third play-through with pearlescent weapons.)

Also, for everyone who thinks changing level is easy consider the following

For the player character - Yes
for All the weapons - Harder
For all the enemies to be properly leveled and deal the appropriate damage. - Super Hard

I know Bethesda gave their level expansion for free, but they then announced they where not making any more DLC the day after. And they do not need to scale weapons/armor.

*End rant =-)

Finally some good number where games are concerned. Those are some good numbers and I was happy to add to that count for Max Payne 3, NBA 2K13, Bioshock and of course Borderlands 2.

A shame the level of work put into Borderlands, didn't carry over to Aliens.
TH3KARMACHARGER  +   659d ago
I found myself that wile aliens was most certainly a disappointing game, it was a decent extension to the aliens story line and I fell that it just lacked in the graphics/AI department.

But that is just my opinion.
