THQ has revealed that it plans to support Saints Row: The Third for at least a year, with downloadable content planned for a twelve-month post-launch spread. 'That's a lot of downloadable dildo helmets!'
Its a years worth of content that should be in the game when it ships
I doubt that. They are going to have a DLC pass that you pay for once and get all the DLC as it comes out. Why would they waste their time releasing DLC a year after launch if it was already done before launch and they got your money nearly a year ago? Seems like an awful lot of work to scam $10 or $15 from people that buy the game.
or they could just you know give it free but thats to much to ask for
So basically the content is ready but Volition are holding it off to make us buy the DLC. Complete b*tch move.
Yep thats correct.. Not that i was gonna buy the game anyway lol But does it ever occur to them that announcing DLC before the game releases is a bad business movie? In honestly think its really stupid to announce DLC early like that...
It's not really Volition's fault. The Thq ceo is the one who stated all this.
They already know its a year of dlc,probably its ready a month ago.This is just BS and shows were this industry is heading.
Why not just included in the game when it comes out
Have you played any of the other SR? The game is already packed with missions, sides missions and hidden mission. Also the game has replay value after you finish the missions, The DLC is just for the hardcore SR fan - if you buy the game you will have more than enough content to last you. Heck this game even has more content that Gears or Uncharted.
DLC could have been an excellent way to counter the small disc space that Xbox uses. But only if the developers were willing to give away the content for free. Instead, they have the content ready but are putting a price tag on it as though they're developing the content after the original release of the game. The methods for bypassing any problems with the hardware exist but developers or the publishers more like, want to take advantage of the situation so they can make more money.
Jim Sterling: "If Saints Row: The Third isn't good, I will kiss a cat directly on its anus." Doesn't he do this in his free time anyways?
Honestly- unless its campaign missions, weapons or add-on dlc I won't bother. I skipped over SR2's DLC no problem.
Well seen as there's no MP this time round, it can only be SP & Co-op DLC, which is a good thing. Violation have always been known to do SP DLC for their games, just look at Red Faction G & A.
This is good if you have the pass which im going to buy day 1 with my copy of SR3
ugh, i wish I could get that pass elsewhere, I don't want to have to preorder from their website...I wanna pick it up in a store so I don't have to hover around my doorstep waiting for it.
