Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime explains why they don't intend to offer DLC.
... Nintendo aims (or claims) to do DLC as it SHOULD be done, which is admirable.
Nintendo will get online right this time...
If Nintendo is against DlC then it looks like next gen i might be purchasing more games from them than Sony&M$. Dear DLC f**k off sincerely pissed off gamer.
This is why I'll always love Nintendo!
me too! I hate DLC with a passion!
"With games carrying a pretty hefty price tag to only then be told that you’re not getting a full experience is a little messed up" Well said, GamersXTREME. Ninty is great. I don't mind the odd spell of DLC but when it comes as locked content on the disc or OTT pricing, I develop a hate for it.
Actually, that quote you just complimented on was my personal quote, not Reggie's :P Glad to see you agreed with it!
haha, sorry xD Sorted now ;)
Bad business move. Good for the consumers.(kinda) But of course this means games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto will be better off played on PS3/360 since they'll end up having much more content.
I think nintendi means the games that they make. They don't have much control about 3rd party.
The only reason why it is a bad business move is that gamers are too stupid not to pay for DLC. But if your target is soccer mom and her nine year old, soccer mom is too smart to fall for DLC's tricks. DLC exists because gamers will pay it. Its our own fault. Kudos to Nintendo for attempting to access a market that won't be fooled by it.
I am sure Nintendo will do DLC for games like Smash Bros for more characters and stages. But the DLC will be free
"Free DLC" already exists on Nintendo products. Its called "Spotpass." Samurai Warriors: Chronicles has had 28 straight weeks of free downloadable stages and weapons.
Professor Layton and Picross 3D had free weekly puzzles to download
Nicely done Nintendo
And this is why people hate nintendo. They have balls and aren't afraid to stand up for something. Nintendo will always get my money... Salivating for more news on Wii U.
Well that was expected ..all their games are finished. It's just a shame that they couln't patch the glitchers players of mario kart Wii online .
This article got major upvotes on reddit. nice one. http://www.reddit.com/r/gam...
*thumbs up* Thats just great! I am getting tired of games not putting the full experience(call of duty, batman, etc). However, I do hope we get some stages in Super smash brothers in the future.
Know what I f*cking miss? you know how when you finish a game you can go back and unlock a whole new character, area and/or a new way to play the game entirely with out, you know..... having to buy it for 9.95? Yeah, I miss those days
