If you're one of the few Xbox 360 owners who have completed the hundreds of hours' worth of quests in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, today brought some welcome news. Bethesda Softworks and 2K Games have released a new add-on for the game on Xbox Live Marketplace. Available now, the Thieves Den content pack weighs in at 2.27MB in size, and will cost Xbox Live subscribers 150 Marketplace points--roughly $1.89.

As one might surmise from the title, the Thieves Den addition is targeted at players whose characters delve into the odd bit of larceny and sneaking. Its description on Xbox Live reads as follows: "Uncover a famous pirate's lost ship and claim it for your own. Designed for stealth-based characters."

Bethesda reps confirmed to GameSpot that the Thieves Den add-on on Xbox Live Marketplace is the same as the addition previously available to PC gamers. Its page on the official Oblivion Downloads site describes it in a bit more detail. "The Thieves Den provides you with everything you need to outfit your stealth-based character for missions," reads that description. "Rediscover the legendary Dunbarrow Cove and the ancient pirate ship The Red Sabre. Dunbarrow Cove not only provides a home base to operate out of, you can purchase new vendors, trainers, and even an upgrade to your sleeping quarters with the loot from your heists."

vallen1311, I was stating a fact....I can play now while you wait. If anyone's trying to hurt feelings, it's the fanboys barraging us with the post after post in an Xbox game forum about how xbox360 sucks. Why are they commenting on something they don't have or don't even want? .I didn't bash PS3...All I said is that I can play HD games now. I don't go to a PS3 forum and talk about Xbox360....that's a fanboy's stupid job. My point is quite clear. For instance, should I talk about X-men 4 that comes out in 3 years or talk about X-men 3 which is OUT right now?.....'nuff said. blackmage, This discussion wasn't about PC Oblivion but playing Oblivion on xbox360....and I know alot of people who have PS2 and want PS3 and don't have a computer to play games like Oblivion which is a system hog. Yea right...do you know me, mgsseries4life? Uh huh I should be jealous cause I'm having fun playing Burnout Revenge on HD right now and you're in gamespot crying about my comments...get real!

for all those crying about the 2$ price tag, is this really setting you back? 2$ is nothing. also, trancejeremy, do you have any idea how much work goes into adding anything (no matter how small) into a game. half an hour....LOL....., theyre adding a whole quest to the game. more than likely they have been working on this add-on since shortly after the game came out (the others probably came out first, since they were less extensive).

FINALLY! More downloadable content! Combine that with a rumored upcoming expansion pack and you have the only single-player RPG that could possibly give games like Guild Wars and World of Warcraft a run for their money.

flex49 said "jealous PS3 fanboys....we're playing while you're waiting...for six more months and $600 no less....LOL." Just curious, is this argument used simply because Sony fanboys used it last gen or something? This is about the worst argument I have ever seen and have simply been wondering where it originated. Like being able to play something a year early makes it better simply because it is actually out. I just don't get the point...if there is one. I guess they are just stating the obvious and hoping it hurts someone's feelings?

These add-ons are perhaps the biggest scam in the history of gaming. For $2, you can get an add-on which took someone at BS (probably an intern) about half an hour to make. Why Xbox users should brag about this is beyond me...PC users can get much better stuff for free, thanks to the construction kit.

for those responding to hmsmichaelot about it being cheaper on the PC, I think he was referring to the fact that you can find "other places" to get the official addons for free.......just letting you all know what he was probably saying.

Its cool to see more stuff thats cool. I wonder if the PS3 does get this game if it would come with the added stuff or not. I hope that it does come out for the PS3 that way they make more money and can make the next game even better because they have more money.

dwmorrow: you imply that Oblivion wasn't a "complete" game right out of the box. Nothing could be further from the truth. This game is massive on it's own. I'm pleased with these releases and hope that Bethesda keeps 'em coming. I'm happy to pay $1.50 for a few extra hours of gameplay until some more AAA titles finally make it out for the 360.

Woohoo! Thank God for episodic-based content. I hated how in the old days you'd just pay once for a complete game and be done with it. It's much better nowadays when a company can just milk their fanbase over, and over, and over.

"lmao. RIPOFF. At least you can dl the stuff for free on the pc version..... " This same content on the PC costs money too, only user-created content can be free.
