What's the difference if they put the Content on the disk to later be Paid/Unlocked or just hold onto it for you to Pay/Download later? Either way it was produced during it's development process.
Sure, it doesn't magically appear, but what's new? Games have been developed for many years and managed to release ALL of their content at release date. They managed to live without cutting content to sell later via download. You make it sound as if side quests and unlockables are suddenly commodities that they need to pawn separately all of a sudden.
Shoot, could you imagine all of Golden Saucer being withheld from FF7 and required to be paid DLC? Or Yuffie being a DLC character? It's just sad to me.
Diavolo, I messed up the post again! I went to the community thing but, I couldnt find the article thread.
First of all, how do you know if the DLC content was produce during the development of the main game? Not calling you a liar but, I would like to know how you know that because you seem very certain of it.
Regardless of when the content was made lets work under the assumption that the DLC was skimmed from the game for a second here. How Square is handling DLC is smart. Deliver a full game that does not disappoint in terms of content but, skim some of that content then sell it separately to make as much money as possible.
But what if Square isnt being all evil on us? In that case, they are continuing the life of XIII-2 by injecting little pieces to the game and hopefully long narratives (maybe Light\'s DLC). That ensures that we keep playing it and enjoying it longer. I am on board with that.
At the end of the day consumers speak with their wallets, and consumers are saying loudly, \"Yes, bring on more DLC.\"
Hope this comment gets messed up....
