No DLC for Final Fantasy XIII

Square-Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase has told that no downloadable content for the game Final Fantasy XIII is planned. The man thinks the final release of the game, in 2009 (Japan), will be the complete launch. No DLC is needed to complete the game and to add more to the launch version. Kitase tells the launch has to be perfect, and that will not be the case when extra DLC is needed to realize that.

i think this new tradition of having DLC as a must is getting out of hand. what happened to the good old days when you bought a game and just enjoyed it for wat it was.
having DLC on some games is fun but it shouldnt me a main point for developers to focus on.

Jup. +1 Bubble because you said what i think.

jadenkorri3583d ago

its quite annoying when you buy a game for a certain console then the other offers dlc only on theirs, if it continues, then both consoles will offer exclusive dlc, its going to be hard on us along with the devs, yes i loved the good ol days of buying a game and that was that.

ZackFair3583d ago

The series has never needed DLC before, and I see no point in adding it now.

I still want new Boss fights and New Dungeons to explore, similar to that of Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix.

"Final Fantasy XIII is a massive single-player RPG."

That certainly didn't stop massive single-player games like Fallout 3, Fable 2, Bioshock, GTA IV etc. etc. from having DLC.

World Wide Simultaneous...anything else is just meh.

I think DLC is good if it adds more to the game rather than a couple of new levels. Burnout Paradise is the leading example of what DLC should be.

Legionaire20053583d ago (Edited 3583d ago )

cause the Wii doesn't have DLC.

Edit: The Wii also doesn't have patches too man. What is this GHWT your taking about? You below me.

NaiNaiNai3583d ago

actually legion, GHWT has DLC on it. and i think there are more games that are going to be doing it.

Lifendz3583d ago

if it's not content that should've been in the game in the first placae (e.g. Tomb Raider). And I find it hard to believe that Square won't have DLC when they were so scared that they wouldn't recoup what they spent to make the game that they made it multi-plat. Expect DLC for this within at least a year after launch.

@legion - Guitar Hero World Tour.

On topic - good thing that this doesn't have DLC, I hate it when devs make content that you have to pay for to get good stuff in the game. Especially with RPGs, it's always a really awesome item or area that usually has achievements attached to it aswell. Also no DLC = they can get to work on Versus XII and get that out ASAP aswell.

i hate DLC. i dont mind an expansion pack here and there but dlc is worthless.

same with yearly releases of games. world at war was a waste. it would have been better to make a an expansion pack for COD4

Good thing that Square-Enix isn't going the Scamco-Bandai route.

_Q_3583d ago

Most RPG (good ones) don't need any of that crap anyway.

Usually Microsoft pay for exclusive DLC on Multiplats

ukilnme3583d ago

DLC should never be required to get a complete game experience. DLC as an expansion is not bad though.
