Why does Microsoft allow people to download DLC for games they don't have?

But... How can somebody benefit from the DLC if they don't own the game?

To get it in their download history for free, then they buy the game later and have free DLC.

The TC is trolling, he needs a beatdown by the mods.

When you have TheBlueStig calling you a troll, you know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

i've done this before, I picked up content when it was listed as free but didn't have the game, then if and when I eventually get the game I can redownload that content and have it to play with.

Sometimes content is flagged as free for a set period of time. Happens with games rearly as well, such as Catan, still kicking myself for not playing Xbox when they were offering it for free and missing out.

*whispers to TC*

I let my friends borrow my Borderlands and Oblivion DLC discs.

This exchange is over.

Is this really a complaint?

Sounds like someone bought DLC for a game they don't have on accident...
