The most rubbish DLC on Xbox Live

Downloadable content has become a part of the videogame world whether gamers like it or not. It's become an inevitable eventuality for nearly every big name title, and gamers have now come to expect most hot games to continue making money with downloadable add-ons ranging from extra costumes and weapons, to map packs and full-on episodic material.

The debate rages on concerning the right and wrong way to use DLC, whether or not publishers are holding back content that could have easily released on the disc, and whether it is right to design extra stuff at the same time the game itself is being made. In order to try and help this debate continue, Destructoid has compiled a little list of some of the worst DLC available on the console with the strongest online userbase, the Xbox 360. ( Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, Beautiful Katamari, Dead Space, SKATE 2, Soulcalibur IV, Tales of Vesperia, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Transformers The Game, Vampire Rain, Xbox 360)

the biggest joke to me
is how people complain about MS being DLC whores, when LBP, you have to pay for new outfits for your virtual barbie haha. and how about those HOME jeans for 2 bucks... riiiiiight. PSN might be free, but to look cool on it you have to pay.

but to look cool on it? I didn't realize you wanted to play Dress up with Ken and Barbie.

The reason people say that is because Microsoft throws money at everything to make it exclusive and it bit them in the ass this year.

Dead Space
I bought the Scorpion suit and the Tank Pack simply because I liked the game so much that I wanted to support the developers in any manner I could. I do agree that some of the DLC is not only overpriced but completely mercenary.
