Wait, you're saying the exact same content would be faster to develop as DLC then as part of the disc, that makes no sense, it's the same code, same content, just arbitrarily branding it DLC and excluding it from the disc doesn't make it any faster.Onyx Oblivion said:idk. Games are finished development before release day, and the DLC has a faster development/release turnaround then manufacturing the discs, etc.danpascooch said:Even if you aren't a used game buyer, it's still not a GOOD thing for you.Onyx Oblivion said:Don't care about the used game thing, but at least I'm usually not unlocking content already on the disc. After all, the Stone Prisoner file was quite bulky. As was the Mass Effect 2 stuff. Well, except the Cerberus Weapons.danpascooch said:How could you possibly be FOR release day DLC? From a company standpoint, it's brilliant, but from the consumer standpoint (assuming you're a consumer and not an EA worker) all it does is take game content that would have been in the game anyway and use it in order to take away your option to buy used games.Onyx Oblivion said:Woot!
I adore each ever since taking a risk with Mirror's Edge. And even more with this DLC plan.
Just because it is not on the disc doesn't make it extra, the fact that it came on release day means it WOULD have been on the disc, but they deliberately took it off the disc in order to use as a "used game sales killer"
This little ruse is made to make you think you're getting something extra, it's like raising the price of something by 10%, and immediately after announcing a 10% sale on that item, IT IS NOT A SALE, IT IS AT IT'S REGULAR PRICE!
60 + 10% = 66
66 - 10% = 59.4
Making it cheaper. But I see your point.
Also, damn you for fucking with my mind with your freaky deaky math wizardry!
