560 points... Ouch. That's what happens when MS charges developers to update their dang games, I'm sure Valve would love to give it away for free but they're having to recoup some costs.
No, they don't have to recoup anything, they have plenty of money and income from other sources. If it was only a $40k patch cost, they might even do it for free.

HOWEVER, it could be that MS charges devs for each DLC download, and they have to cover the cost of that. I don't know the details of the financial agreements between big publishers and DLC and MS.
