thats why u have to respect Valve they really support their community with a lot of free items

TheBeast2548d ago

Everyone loves free stuff! Valve does know how to please :D

Commander_TK2548d ago

Because Valve is the best developer ever.

"The DLC is set to be released sometime this summer and will be availalbe for free on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac."

So it was possible to release DLC's for free on Xbox Live after all...

Ducky2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

MS had a limit on how much content can be released for free. (Don't know if they still follow that policy)

So future DLC might have a mandatory price tag on XBL.

Soldierone2548d ago

If it is mandatory then expect it to not even appear on Xbox Live.

Darkfocus2548d ago

the L4D DLC's still appeared on xboxlive...

Fireseed2547d ago

I think it may change, and that MS and Valve have struck a deal. I think this cause the usually Games for Windows exclusive Fable is now gonna be released on Steam. Perhaps they may even add in Steam for Xbox

so now all a sudden Valve can release DLC on the 360 for free huh? When they finally have a game on the PS3 with DLC, it just happens this one is finally free.

Not possible with Left 4 Dead - but possible with Portal 2. Someone is lying here either Valve or Microsoft.

despair2548d ago

limited free updates on X360, not zero.

Blaze9292548d ago

And where are you getting that from? Source?

Ducky2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Here's a source.

Either Valve is lying, or that's how the wheel turns.

I remember another game that got one free DLC followed by paid DLC. Might've been RedDead... not sure. Can't be bothered to look things up. =/

Blaze9292548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

""Well, they helped us get the first one out for free. We had the one DLC out for free. And I think... they have to look and say, wow, we're kind of being unfair to everybody else if these guys can do that. "

From the way Valve put it, sounds like Microsoft doesn't want ANYONE having free DLC and they let Valve slide once and to be fair to everyone else - they put an end to that...but here 'they' are allowing it again?

Still doesn't add up. Nor does that article say anything about developers/publishers getting 'limited' free updates on the 360.

I mean, they are the ones who went out on record to say Microsoft prices everything that goes up on Xbox LIVE Marketplace - which has to be complete bullshit. I don't see them having that much control over multiplatform 3rd party games. If that's the case, Microsoft would probably make everything $1-$5 cheaper than PSN just to win people over.

I mean I'm not mad or anything, free DLC - hell yeah bring it on! But someone's lying here...

dead_eye2548d ago

Microsoft allow 1 piece of free dlc. They might have changed it now seeing as it's not just p.c/mac getting it this time

Hudahudahuda2548d ago

Hohoho those sleazy greedy drooling, nose picking, poo flinging, nickle-diming mother funkers. Never let me down. Why in Gods name do they give a damn what a developer wants to do with their games? Why aren't developers allowed to give Free DLC on XBL?

Pandamobile2548d ago

DarkBlood2548d ago
