[RaceSimCentral] NASCAR The Game 2011 DLC Free for PS3, Paid for 360

After months of waiting for what was supposed to be a free update to get the 2011 season, one can only imagine the shock from fans on the Xbox 360 side of the camp. While PlayStation 3 owners will get the 2011 season DLC for free, Xbox 360 users will have to shell out 160 MS Points. (Eutechnyx, NASCAR The Game 2011, PS3, Xbox 360)

I think valve had the same problem, they wanted DLC free and MS said no and charged for it....I think it was L4D2, but not positive.

L4D DLC was free on PC but expensive on 360. There was a little uproar. I am not going to flip over this. It's not my brand of entertainment regardless if the DLC is free.

That sucks.

Its MS... Awful company, pirating Windows should be legal.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   1289d ago
If pirating was legal then it wouldn't be pirating. Not such a big deal,Xbox owners have to cough up two bucks.

How is paying for DLC that is free on another platform not a big deal? It's a huge problem.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   1289d ago
The amount is about the same as a bottle of coke and not everyone is going to worry too much over a couple of bucks.Now paying $60.00 a game seems like a much bigger problem and as always DLC is optional.
PirateThom  +   1289d ago
It's not the cost, it's a fact there's a cost where there shouldn't be a cost.

@OtherWhiteMeat
Perhaps, I should charge you for free samples or the free water from the fountain. Everyone else gets it free.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   1289d ago
So at the end of the day Microsoft walks away with a pocket full of cash and Sony empty handed.Right or wrong Microsoft knows how to make money.Usually at the gamers expense.

And that's not an issue to you with them flat out exploiting?

I didn't know MS did these kind of things, but thats pretty awful basically you're paying them 2 dollars and not the developers...disgraceful

Wonder how much it cost to maintain XBL. I know M$ makes some serious cash on it every year which is why I don't understand why they wouldn't let it be free.
DrFUD  +   1289d ago
they wont let it be free because they have all their 360 customers brains in a jar. They cant open the jar or else one brain might get out and try to take another with it because it stinks. At the top of the jar theres a money slot and thats the only way in...there is no out. The 360 customer is a slave.

Well said DrFUD. That's exactly the way I've seen the XBL gamer for a long time.
RGB  +   1289d ago
Usual trick by M$, the developer doesn't see a penny. This happens all the time and shouldn't be a surprise to people.
JustinSaneV2  +   1289d ago
Just like how Microsoft insisted that Windows Phone 7 developers not make free apps (or charge more than $.99.
lodossrage  +   1289d ago
Are you serious? I never heard about of that. But if true, that's very anti competitive on their part. With Android and Iphone having free apps and both being more popular than the windows phone how do they expect to realistically ever catch either if stuff like this goes on?
JustinSaneV2  +   1289d ago
*correction*

I meant charge less than $.99.
