Xbox Gets Exclusive Early Access to Skyrim DLC
More DLC exclusiveness drama – this time it involved The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, one of this years most anticipated titles. Microsoft and Bethesda have forged a deal where the first Skyrim DLC will be available for Xbox 360 players for a month before releasing on PS3 & PC.
This news has PlayStation 3 players causing a quite a ruckus. Then there are the PC gamers who as faithful fans of the early Elder Scroll’s games helped cement Bethesda as the powerhouse game developer we know today. While gamers have become more vocal recently about their displeasure with DLC exclusivity, developers continue to ‘make deals with the devil’.
What do YOU think?
Is it fair or good business for developers to continue offering exclusive deals to certain groups? Will this trend continue or is it nearing its last days? Will unhappy gamers have their voices heard, or will they continue to be ignored?
