Day 1 DLC certainly annoys me as well...but when has a developer made you purchase it? Never.

Good article, good read. Now only if the gaming world would realize their flaws.

I don't have a problem with day 1 DLC. The thing is...some developers put all their time and effort into a game and give you TONS of content for $65. (With tax, of course.) The game is finished and has about a three month window before it releases, usually. In that time frame, most developers are working on DLC for the game that's coming out in three months. What happens if they finish it before the game actually releases? Should they hold off on it, so that people don't complain that "they could have put it on the disc"?

This is not the case every time, but it's an example. Putting content ON the disc, but charging us to unlock it... Now THAT deserves hate.
