OFP: Dragon Rising DLC & Patch Soon

There's an Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Interview on Eurogamer chatting with Sion Lenton about Codemasters' military shooter. As they point out separately, along the way they learn that the first DLC for the game is due by the end of this month, along with a patch that will include network optimizations. "Our intention is to align [the patch] with the first DLC pack that's coming out as well, which is due around the end of October. Hopefully we'll do the whole thing in one," Lenton tells them. He also says that they have plans for more DLC after that, but they want to see what players want first. "It's quite open-ended, it's not a lot of fuss for us to make new content - it's actually quite easy for us to get it out there, with regards to things like levels, game modes, etc," Lenton explains. "The other thing we actually like to look at is getting some new equipment in there as well."

I fully understand that obviously DLC is something that these companies are making money with, obviously the concept took or they wouldn't have continued it. I'm not paranoid, but the fact remains
that DLC is a concept that had it's hard roots on consoles. PC Games for the most part had, if anything expansion packs. (Ignoring the quality vs. price of these expansions).

Now, just because something is good buisness dosen't mean it's good for us as customers. And honestly, the concept probably took better on current generation consoles because people there didn't know any better, or ever had the option of getting custom mods etc. from 3rd parties.

It's something we all will have to live with, if we like it or not.
