Microsoft Ready to Milk Fallout 3

Microsoft is ready to steal your lunch money. With the release of Fallout 3, they are ready to jump on the wagon and pimp out downloadable content

After a ten-year hiatus, Fallout 3 made its return to the PC today. I’d like to congratulate the folks over at Bethesda. After a decade, the bar was set pretty high, and they worked countless hours to make sure your expectations were exceeded. Personally, I think the execution of this classic PC franchise could not have been better. Fallout 3 is a blast, and if you enjoy it as much as I do (I’m betting you will), it will keep you glued to your PC.

This is the first title to support Games for Windows – LIVE since we made it a free gaming service, and I can’t think of a better title to launch with. As you will see soon, we have some exciting updates just around the corner. Updates that we believe will help make your PC gaming experience even better, including a marketplace to let you download more content for your games, a completely redesigned in-game experience built just for the PC, and more. These changes are the result of our focus in building a service PC gamers will love, and your input plays a big part. We’ve been listening.

I can see the logic of DLC: it's a great marketing ploy and encourages replay. However, it makes gamers feel like when they buy the game, they're buying an unfinished product. Expansion packs feel more morally right. At least then, you're buying quite a bit of content, and not just some horse armor.
