So now they're blocking gamers from accessing stuff they added to the game, because they want people to pay for stuff already in their possession, after having already paid for the game.

This is fine for F2P games, you get what you don't pay for...but for retail games? Ugh.

Gotta love the direction the gaming industry is headed in.

Can't PS3/360 owners just not download the latest patch/delete contents for the game and still get access to the DLC?

The game isn't out for consoles yet. They blocked it cause people were getting into the DLC that's on disc without having to pay for it. I think the same thing happened with Deaf Space 2 except EA didn't block the DLC when they found out people were unlocking it for free.

This whole "locked content" model is absolutely embarrassing to the industry. Any publisher or dev that follows this model should be ashamed of themselves.

Good job rewarding your fanbase Piranha Bytes/Deep Silver.

It won't matter, I guarantee another way of accessing it will be found within a day

That's how developers protect their extortion, too bad it will be futile...
