Split/Second DLC revs up

Three Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 content packs planned for Disney's explosive racer in August; content ranges from new liveries to a new vehicle; fresh map promised for September.

As students are preparing to head back to school soon, Disney Interactive's dynamic battle racer, Split/Second, is just heating up.

A post on the game's Facebook page announced two new add-on content packs for the racing title set to debut in August. The first content pack (not yet priced) adds new vehicle skins for players to decorate their automobiles with. The second pack, the High Octane Supercar Pack (not yet priced), adds a new vehicle to a gamer's virtual garage. And the third content update will let players download the Ryback Cyclone car for free.

It's going to take more than a split second to download this.

Disney says all three packs will come to Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network "in the coming weeks." Additionally, the publisher promised that an entirely new environment will be available in virtual storefronts sometime in September. Disney did not announce any of the content for the PC.

The only other Split/Second downloadable content currently available is a time-saver pack, which was released on the game's launch day in May. This paid content unlocks all cars, tracks, and modes, thus nullifying the need to play through the game's story mode.

I have to admit, I'm disappointed in this DLC. Funny how I almost put this game back in 2 days ago after not having played it in about 2 months. Great game and I got pretty deep into it but it's just that I bought RDR around the same time and got sucked into RDR more.

DLC = Dearly-priced, Laughable Crap

Map should be good though. Would be nice if they put it all together into one pack... you know, at least give the impression that they aren't milking every single thing that they make. I'd be willing to wait for them to make a few more tracks if it meant I didn't have to pay for each one individually.

Why do they call it a supercar "pack" if it's just one more car?

Shining example that a Marketing team can only do so much.

They consider this crap DLC what a joke, I suppose they will want $1.99 per pack too. Thanks, but you can keep your junk Disney.

Why even bother putting out a game for the PC and then piss off those players by releasing content only for the consoles?
