Viva Piñata… Downloadable Content? November 10, 2006Posted by dpcough in Xbox Live Marketplace.
Yesterday when I was looking through Xbox Live Marketplace I saw Viva Piñata Accessory Pack 1. I thought oh cool, like Dead Rising I guess. It’s free content that just needs to be unlocked and can be downloaded for free. Then I saw the price – 90 points. The size of this download is 108.00 KB meaning it is on the disc but needs to be unlocked. I don’t know the full meaning of this, wheter it can be bought using in-game currency or it can only be bought on Marketplace but this trend is becoming disturbing. If it is on the disc let it be. I don’t mind paying for content. Just work on that content after you make the code gold and ready for retail.
Hopefully this content is free in the future. I won’t care about one little accessory pack. Please don’t do it again Rare. One piece of content is fine since the game was only $50 9not $60) just don’t do it again.
The game is a lot of fun though. Go buy it and check it out. Viva Piñata!
