BioWare: Some Players Want Day-One DLC

Gamasutra- Fernando Melo, director of online development at BioWare Montreal defended day one DLC for BioWare titles as part of his GDC Europe talk this week, explaining that "players want more content, and they want it now -- the problem is that there is no single 'now', so it should be there when they're ready for it."

One thing that makes sense IS the fact that some people destroy a game in 1 or 2 sittings. Those people need to get dlc right away, or they will never ever get it.

Anyone who's still a Bioware fan at this point certainly qualifies.

So... I guess they're justified in this? Morons want day-1-DLC, and morons are the only demographic they've got left.

yes but a MAJORITY of consumers don't want to be milked!

day 1 dlc should always be included on the disc from the get go, no ifs and buts about it
