A thought about DLC

19 replies 234 views Edited Oct 26, 2012

It had just occured to me.

If there is going to be any new DLC characters, they would have to be released as packs of even numbers (2, 4, 8, etc) because of the rivalry system in arcade/story mode. Unless they just make it so that an existing character has a rival with a DLC, which I doubt.

 

I don't think they would release "half-cooked" charactersas DLC without a proper arcade mode and rivalry, do you? 

So that would mean that any Character DLC would come in (at least) 2-packs.

not only would they come in "rivalry packs" they would also have to come with two alternate costumes for each character (the ingame characters got two because of one unlockable and one preorder), alternate intros, outros, theme music, taunts, and a minion each

Remember that it's a continuing chain of rivalries. Not the same rivalry. So it would have to be an odd number. At the very least, 3 characters in a pack.

i would say $10 for a pack of 3 characters that comes with story modes, alternate costumes, taunts, intros, outros, victory music, backgrounds, and minions.  Considering Omar said that Team ICO didn't want any of their characters going near this game ever, i could see the first pack having crash, snake, and cloud

Yeah, it's going to be interesting to see how they approach DLC, Because I certanly don't see them releasing single characters, or anything that seems half done.

 

any DLC would need to be just as good (or better) than what is on disc I think.

Crash will never be DLC - Omar

 

Spyro, "snake and cloud" is more likely.

 

Or "Kat" instead of Spyro.

I think this game would be more hurt by DLC than anything... I mean, why not have them in the game from the start? It'd get people more excited... DLC isn't going to sell the game. I mean it might sell a few copies but a starting roster is what really grabs people's attention.
