He is correct and we've seen what can happen to companies who try to scalp their customers for a quick buck, with excessive DLC nonsense, etc.
It's also funny when companies start to try to appeal to "everyone" instead of their fans and end up alienating everyone.
If you keep your fans happy and make good games instead of trying to cash in, real gamers (not just trend followers) will appreciate it.
Make good games and make lots of money? What a novel idea! I can think of a few companies who could benefit from its' introduction.

i don't see DLC as a problem, i see sequels as a problem. For example, we get a call of duty every year, with barely anything new online besides the story that i never play, then we got other company wants that cod money so they make their own shooters, now the market is over-saturated with them.

Hah I was actually going to mention that but my comment was getting long. Shooter over-saturation, CODism, "playing it safe", and TOO MUCH DLC, etc. have been pretty bad this gen.
I don't have a problem with worthwhile DLC, that's not on the disc already, doesn't take anything away from the original release, and is worth the money.
I'm actually looking foward to some DLC like Mirumasa and Mercenaries for example.
