Console DLC reaches an estimated $1 billion in revenues.
sad face =(
Smiley face : )
I contributed $0.00 to DLC, and it'll stay that way.
damn, i wish i worked for SONY and/or MICROSOFT.
DLC is here to stay. Users will have to learn to have a little more self control or picky for this to ever change. I'm sure M$ and $ony will only expand on it and soon Nintendy will be there with their new console.
That is games will be more gimped in the future(incomplete)... I will stop supporting the gaming industry once its over-saturated with this crap...
This sort of thing happened twice before in the past and was reasons for those console crashes. (In regards to making half ass games or incomplete ones) It could very well happen again if this trend of making incomplete games just to charge consumers more for DLC that should have been in the game from the very start.
Some DLC is ok. COD DLC is a joke. Im not even a COD hater but i refuse to buy their DLC.
I've never bought DLC in my life..
Wow you guys really love to unlock on the disk content wow! good job! Pfft is this only the begging! Call of Duty:Elite will blow these now numbers out of the water!
They are missing out on Halo: Reach. The DLC was quite popular and Halo: Reach is on its way to 10 million sold. I think RDR undead stuff sold quite well, too. And of course RDR sold really well on both platforms.
It really depends for me as to if I buy DLC. I usually buy stuff like Mass Effect DLC as it adds to the story. Same with Fable and games like that. I did buy the latest COD map pack but strictly for the new zombie map. Which it was well worth it. DLC is simply a thing everyone will have to learn to live with. It's not like it's NEEDED to finish a game though. It's optional.
Same here i never bought a dlc unless its from a preorder, or i do account sharing with psn with my cousin. I haven't pay a single dime for dlc.
Well there are a lot of suckers out there. I never have nor will buy dlc, I'll wait for the game of the year edition to come out if I think I'll want any of it. Very few have ever been anything but a tacked on time waster. I guess some of you don't mind their hand in your pocket all the time.
A handful of people feel like they're just throwing there money at Developers , just spend DLC on games that you actually "like" not just "appreciate" for example Cod, I appreciate the game and I have respect for all its success but I dont really like the game to where I'm gonna buy DLC for it nor will I ever spend $ on that series. First Person shooters for me aren't worth it. Instead RPG games like Fable episodic single player games like L.A. Noir Mass Effect etc are worth it.
'' DLC is simply a thing everyone will have to learn to live with. It's not like it's NEEDED to finish a game though. It's optional. '' We will see in a few years when game companies charge for every mode and feature and unless you buy the DLC you have an incomplete game.
. Big numbers for the Halo games...no surprise tho, Halo fans are for REAL and support the franchise. The hatters will complain but M$ and Bungie have been great with that franchise...I expect the same for 343 studio's. Speaking of which, just a couple more days to the worst kept secret in gaming.
