Old Games: Should Downloadable Content Be Free?
© 2009 David Hilton
I would love to see sales figures for downloadable content for games that were released 1-3 years ago. Some of this content hasn’t ever changed in price and competes with new release games’ downloadable maps and features.
In a world where everything, including the retail games themselves, depreciates does this make any sense?
No it doesn’t.
But of course those in charge are certainly not obligated to lower prices or, even better, make the added content for older games free. But it would be both logical and, well, nice.
