BioWare on the Importance of Day One DLC

There's an interesting quote on Joystiq from a GDC Europe talk by BioWare director of online development Fernando Melo, who says that a majority of the profit they saw from Dragon Age DLC was from sales of day-one DLC packs Stone Prisoner and Warden's Keep, saying this accounted for 53% of their DLC income from the game (thanks nin). Word is:

This figure accounts for those who bought Stone Prisoner for $15 in a used copy of Origins, and those who purchased Warden's Keep for $7 outside of its inclusion in the Digital Deluxe Edition. Since these two DLC packs, Dragon Age: Origins has had seven additional iterations of downloadable content, which account for less than half of the total DLC revenue from Origins.

They are actually defending Day-1 DLC. This is how rotten, irresponsible, hostile to consumers and morally bankrupt the gaming industry has become.
Well, you can defend day-1 DLC, the reality is. If you're going to have it, you bloody well better make sure it's worth the money. $10 for a single NPC, and a mission that takes 6mins to beat won't cut it. It needs to add something to the game itself, to make it worthwhile. And in turn, the content has to add to existing content, not seem like it was removed from the game itself, in order to say "hey-hey, I'm here to fuck ya over!"
