PlayStation-exclusive DLC for Assassin's Creed and Watch Dog are locked for six months

Shack News: "PlayStation snagged exclusive DLC for both Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. But, "exclusive" typically means "timed exclusive" in this business, and that happens to be the case here too."

The Aveline missions are already on the Digital Deluxe edition on the PC version.

i hate timed exclusive dlc .. THX M$

black0o1677d ago

M$ started this .. it's all thx to M$ then $onY followed

Black0o has a valid point. If the game is available on both console, then the dlc and release times for the DLC should be the same.

I really don't like timed exclusive DLC, or games for that matter, although a whole game is more understandable.

I'd rather they spend that money on another game or a fresh IP or something.

I suppose in the business world it works though, otherwise they wouldn't bother. Even GS is paying for exclusive content for some games now. It can get rather confusing at times.

When I learned that the hd vita port was coming to 360 I was wondering why the black flag dlc was exclusive as it didn't make sense. Now I see that wasn't exclusive after all, just timed.

Sony really shouldn't waste money on timed DLC, I'd rather have more games than getting extra digital content a few months early.

i'm assuming there'll be some sorta season pass with these games... anyone wanna hazard a guess if they'll be paid DLC or freebies? if paid will they be in a season pass?

FullmetalRoyale1677d ago

I just got my Game Informer and there is an ad for a season pass for AC4.

Hopefully that helps some..

Regis1677d ago

The Season pass is out now for AC4 and is $20

looks like Timed DLC will be more extreme next-gen, Microsoft started it and Sony is taking it to the next level.

bjmartynhak1677d ago

Such a waste of money... put it in your studios Sony.

SuperBlur1677d ago

true , everyone and their mom is getting a ps4.

Omegasyde1677d ago

I agree. Put it towards studio's with new IP's or add it to the marketing budget.

Timed/exclusive DLC is bad for all consoles.
