Microsoft does it all the time but it's a bad business practice.

If I was a one console owner and I was getting screwed out of DLC like that I wouldn't buy the game new. If my sixty dollars isn't as good as another guy's then I guess that publisher doesn't deserve my sixty dollars.

I'd much rather buy used and give my money to Gamestop over an a-hole publisher...

I have both systems but it's an anti-consumer practice and it pisses me off. If one system gets more content then why am I paying the same price?

Don't forget the millions Sony/Microsoft cut out for exclusivity, its your $60 + that.

I'm not going to say exclusive DLC is a good thing, but why wouldn't it cost the same price? Getting a few skins or side missions is free to the people buying it on the system. It's just Day 1 DLC on a single system, ADDITIONAL content not included in the base price.

Depends on if the DLC is free. If it isn't you are paying the same price because the base games are the same.

Wow I can't believe how far we've fallen as gamers. No wonder all these crappy practices exsist... we're letting companies screw us over and when something doesn't go a publisher's way it's because we're somehow entitled. Are you guys gonna defend day 1 DLC and disk-locked content too? Or are you just happier paying $70-80 for a game?

I own both systems so it doesn't apply to me (and I had the PS3 version ordered anyway) but that doesn't make any less BS.
