Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of The Start Point. This week I am going to be talking about the origins of downloadable content. This feature has become somewhat ubiquitous with modern games and has even started penetrating the retail market, something that makes me think that gaming has become very mainstream since the turn of the century. Now I know what you are thinking, DLC is strictly a product of this generation of consoles and specifically of the XBOX 360, but the truth might impress and shock you. Okay, probably just impress you: and even that would be a stretch. So come with me and take the red pill, learn the real truth behind DLC.
