IMO, Announcing DLC is ok as long as they haven't started working on it yet. If they have and it is ready to launch with the game, then that's a no-no. Just include it with the game. That's an obvious money grab and should be illegal. We all know that games now cost upwards of $100 after all the DLC nonsense. It's a way to get more than $60 for a game, and I hate the whole business. It's pretty obvious that developers know they are going to offer DLC for most of their big games before proof of concept. I think we should all wait until it becomes GOTY and buy the entire package for $35.

FO3/FONV: Honestly, I didn't really enjoy the DLC. The Pitt was alright, but I found most of it just repetitive and painfully boring, especially Mothership Zeta. Ugh, that felt like one big long hallway over and over. If it is just more gameplay content, it's not worth it.

The only way DLC can be justified is A: The game is clearly finished, polished, not rushed, and sufficiently long (depending on the game of course), and B: the dlc is either substantial and worth the price, or inconsequential and cheap (Solstheim vs Lara Croft outfits). The dragon hunter dlc that was free for DA:I was one of the exception: dlc that should've been apart of the main game, but was free. Also, from a developer standpoint, coming up with a plot for a game, and then finding a point in that plot where you say "alright, this is gonna be dlc/a sequel is the exact same as book writers going "Alright, this part of the story should be one book, and this part book two or in a databook/spin-off". It's legit, as long as you do it right. Without having played fallout 4, it's impossible to know if they did it right.

Aahh! Mini-fridge! Kinda small. A R2 version would be cool too. Vertical with a flip-top lid. )

Why bitch about DLC? It's optional, I for one like to know if a developer has DLC on the horizon. I salute Hines for being upfront with it.

As long as the game is complete I don't care if they're making DLC now, I'll probably just buy Game of the Year edition anyways and let everyone else deal with the game breaking bugs that may occur.

wasn't the idea of DLC to "extend" the life of a game ?, releasing DLC before OR near so close to release date just seems like locking up content and making people pay for it episodically

@DWalker131: Dragon Age Inquisition is the clear example of that. Jaws of Hakkon and the descent were clearly part of the initial game, but Bioware was discrete in a way that the content was not included in the disc.

The most brutal and worse case is Destiny. Why in the world the size of expansion 1 and 2 is around 10MB? That DLC was clearly locked in the disc at launch.

@heavengirl15: No, it wasn't. You downloaded both expansions the moment they finished it, regardless of whether or notyou bought it. The purpose of that was to make sure that all players got the bug fixes and additional content/changes not locked in the expansions. Then, you paid for a digital "key" of sorts to unlock the rest.

I have absolutely no problem with Bethesda DLC, anymore. Both expansions for Fallout 3 and Skyrim, I thought were fair. I got my money's worth. It was no horse armor.

Dynamic Resolution? DLC politics? This is not a step to future, this is a step back to dumbing down of society.

It is not about announcing paid DLCs before release, it is just about even announcing such paid DLCs! These destroys game development purposes.

@TransvormerSCol: Dude. It's nothing to get you panties in a bunch over. Consoles in general dumb down gaming and society way more than DLC announcements.

Having day one content that you have to pay for is a legit reason to be upset about, but there's nothing wrong with announcing DLC before a game is release. I personally like seeing what we'll be getting in the months and years after I'm done with the game. People complain over the most stupid things.

@stoney29z: How is this clickbait, tho? As it is just a compilation of headlines, I don't get that criticism. If you don't find their value, that's fine, especially if you read the news regularly. If you've got someone who hasn't been paying a lot of attention, this might be fine for them. I don't think they're misleading you with the link in any way, however.

It's irresponsible to announce any game before release, let alone DLC. Nothing lives up to the hype anymore.

Xbox one is truly is the worst gaming console of all time, Its just so sad that no games can achieve a 1080/60fps consistency not even its biggest IP exclusives like halo 5. That says a lot.

Did it ever occur to microsoft that people 8yrs after the x360 would want to game in 1080p? Or did they learn that after they already released the console?

They would not need a dynamic resolution system in halo5 if Microsoft just made the Xbox ones hardware comparable to the playstation 4's.

Besides exclusives, there is really not a single reason to own an Xbox one considering the ps4 can run all the same games at a much higher quality and more consistent frame rate.

If you really look at the hardware differences between the consoles, it almost seems as if the ps4 is an entire console generation ahead of the xbox one in terms of raw power (and the ps4 really isnt even that powerful either but its still lightyears ahead of the bone).. And didnt they want $100 more for the xbone at launch?? Hilarious.

@dannydouble: and if you were more than penis measuring, you would know that in motion, 1080p doesn't matter, and that most people sit so far from their tv they can barely resolve 720p. They should've given up the 60 FPS a gun with a far better 30 more cinematic feel and no silky smooth cheese that looks unnatural and shitty

@dannydouble: You do realize that playing on xbox one and ps4 offers very little difference? Negligible actually. It's not like unmodded low quality skyrim vs ultra heavily modded skyrim. it's like a difference between 12x AA and 16x AA. For what you're getting, who cares! (apparently you do). Seriously, it's about GAMEPLAY! Not graphics. Minecraft proved that. Borderlands proved that. Unless PC or PS4 can play hyper-realistic graphics, it's not even worth considering as a buying point.

Secondly, dumbass (and I say dumbass because you are one for this point), the xbox one launched with a certain peripheral that PS4 outright failed to compete with and that's the all-seeing kinect. A device substantial enough to justify the $100 increase. (although, I, myself, don't currently have one, I plan on getting it eventually.) Not launching with a kinect-less version? That was a bad move. You getting the internet? even worse.

Ok cool. So enlighten me, which PS4 exclusive titles are able to hit that?

@dannydouble: It all comes down to what they think people are willing to pay while also minimizing costs at every turn. Sure they could pump out a more powerful box, but would the asking cost of say $600 or more be feasible for the majority of people looking to buy it? No. They wouldn't sell near as much. Thank goodness we have PCs so were not stuck with the overpriced mediocre hardware coming from MS. Or even PS for that matter.

@knightowl: Hell I'd rather pay $600 or more for a much more powerful console that's comparable to a decent high end pc then pay $300 for a mediocre machine. That's why I refuse to upgrade to a new console. They really dropped the ball on the XB1

For me its not so much before its released as before it even exists. Didn't he say they didn't even have any ideas yet but planned to make something eventually?

@Pawfalcon: Kinda, I mean they probably already have some DLC stuff in the works but not publicly known so yeah at this point it's a season pass for all the DLC they ever make for Fallout 4, which could technically be none :).

I think Jess didn't really mean before release, that would just be essentially pre-ordering which is normal. I think she meant selling a season pass before any DLC information has been announced.
