After sinking hours into the new bikes portion of the game, Boomtown explains why Burnout: Paradise's DLC model is the future. From the article: "Even if a budget game could sell enough to make a decent profit for the retailer/publisher/developer, there is the problem of pre-owned games. Every time someone decides to buy a pre-owned game above a brand new one, the publisher and developer get squat. The retailer pockets the entire bundle of cash because they bought it off another punter like you in the first place. Pure profit."
