He said social, but what he really meant, was... ;P

Only DLC that should be payed for are the ones that add a lot more gameplay. When they add character DLC to a fighting game it should be free

“We believe that our consumers will be able to feel more secure if we offer our add-on content as an additional structure in which those who love the game will be able to enjoy it in a deeper way for a prolonged play time.”

isn't that what ALL developers claim?

Pikajew2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

If he is talking about free DLC than yes. There are devs that think games should have it. But publishers think you should pay for DLC and Nintendo is a publisher. I think Nintendo wants to give free DLC

I didn't understand that statement very well

You will only feel more secure if you buy Nintendo DLC!

GribbleGrunger2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

well i hope he's true to his word because it may end the money pinching some devs get away with. it may be a contentious issue, but i honestly believe that some games (those that get DLC on the day of release of close after) are parts of the game that had to be cut out of the DVD version. with Nintendo offering at least 25GB and Sony offering the same,. perhaps we'll see an end to that

Knushwood Butt2510d ago

Yeah. I generally avoid those type of Day 1 DLC games anyway.

Just wait though; I guarantee we'll see Nintendo selling new Mario costume colours as DLC, and still claim that this is OK because it will enable players to enjoy it in a deeper way for a prolonged play time.

I just hope they don't charge us to unlock content that is already on the disk. Looking at you Capcom and 2k and many others.
