Something predictible by the way. And I'm sure it's gonna be PAID DLC. Well... OK... BUT, PLEASE UBI, rlease the LDC on PC too.

I hate the idea of DLC for consoles or PCs.
Not only are they charging you extra for stuff that is consistent with the gain/budget balance of having it all in one, but also DLC is only available to some 20-30 or so countries due to restrictions from both Sony and Microsoft. And for both companies my country is not in their "places that exist" list. Sony reduced their country list in PSN long time ago, because apparently they don't know what Geography is.

I agree with you on DLC. Its often way to expensive and it should be in the full game to begin with. Also your point about you not getting it. But cant you just make a PSN account thats in a different region or do you live on some random island?

SinoK, I assume you're requesting DLC for the PC because of what happened to Prince of Persia.

But you have to remember, AC1 got DLC for the PC while consoles didn't.

I guess it doesn't hurt to specifically request it for the PC, but I have a feeling Prince of Persia was just a one-time crap-out and not a reflection of Ubisoft's future policy of treatment towards PC customers.

didnt AC come out later on the PC? Maybe ubi where trying to make it up by giving DLC.

Tons of games show up on PC a few months after console. AC1 had no reason to make up for what's basically mainstream practice.

It was a gift just because, I guess.

lauren AC1 was ment to launch at the same time across all platforms, but the Pc version was delayed by about 6 months so they added a few extra features to the game (it wasnt a DLC it was just feature added while porting the game)

Dang it, Cas. Making me feel like an idiot again.

... I thought the later PC release was standard, not delayed. And I thought it was DLC. >_>

So <STRIKE>strike through</STRIKE> my above posts, and continue the discussion as it were.

But still, I think Prince of Persia's issue wasn't a sign of Ubisoft's future treatment of PC gamers.

Nothing has been announced on the DLC front for Assassin's Creed 2 but Ubisoft are aware of the Communities thoughts on DLC for the PC.

It stands for Downloadable Content. It means additional content added to a game via a download system like Xbox Live/PSN or WiiConnect.

lol Raide.

I think it's a little too soon to even discuss DLC. We barely know much about the actual game. 0_o

yep if they already have a plan for a DLC before the game is launched they should of just stopped sitting on thier hands and put it in game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Cas, Prince of Persia did this as well.

They called it something like a "dynamic DLC team," which was waiting around in the Bat Cave until the game launched. And as soon as it did, they started taking notes on what people liked and didn't like about the game. In the end, they built the DLC around what people wanted.

I ended up getting the DLC after a boycott, and found that I liked the DLC much more than I did the entirety of the retail product. Things that I didn't like about the game were completely resolved in the DLC.

So it may sound like they're just sitting around, but then again maybe that's not a bad thing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I couldnt get the DLC for PoP because Ubi made a stupid choice that caused this post in the first place http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

would of been better if they told people they would do that before selling the game, as look at GTA4 there isnt loads of people complaining the DLC's arnt on PS3 as they said they wouldnt be before they even released the game.
