Valve has officially announced today the first pack of DLC for their latest game "Portal 2".
thats why u have to respect Valve they really support their community with a lot of free items
Everyone loves free stuff! Valve does know how to please :D
Because Valve is the best developer ever.
THIS IS BULL CRAP THE GAME HAS BEEN OUT FOR TWO WEEKS!!... o its free! I love Valve
"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...
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.
If it is mandatory then expect it to not even appear on Xbox Live.
the L4D DLC's still appeared on xboxlive...
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.
limited free updates on X360, not zero.
And where are you getting that from? Source?
Here's a source. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... 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. =/
""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...
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
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?
The witcher 2 has free dlc also yes!
What the hell does that have to do with anything?
it has to do with nothing thats what this is a multiplatform converstation on dlc the witcher 2 even though i dont follow it at all i assume is a pc exclusive ofc it has some free dlc but its common knowledge that big expansions arent free i dont know why im even saying this lol
mmmmm more Portal.
Free on 360?! No way!
Gotta love Valve.
Would of expected this to be announced sometime after E3, since they have already announced the DLC, it leaves E3 clear for Half life 3/Episode 3 info...or DOTA 2 info I think I know which one I want it to be :)
If we can get more GlaDOS in these test chambers/challenges, all be as happy as can be... Also, hopefully they'll include the scrapped Pneumatic Diversity Vent. I love Valve ♥
lol They are give everyone what pc gamers are used to? cool!
Activision could have learned a thing or two from valve but there credibility has long gone.
cool. looking forward to playing it!
Activision would of put a price tag of $20 on that DLC guaranteed.
Honestly, we have watched the same movie, over & over again. What the hell is announcing a DLC after game release? It's one of the marketing cheats of the modern world! Edit: Meh, At least it has turned out to be free.
Free? Wow, just when I thought I couldn't love Valve anymore...
