I was there at the time and it sold well. Here's a great start of your proof adventure. I incorrectly assumed any "console players" would know where to find this kind of stuff. Go ahead compare it to all kinds of DLC's, have fun.
Many people were around back then, it wasn't even 10 years ago. Of course it "sold", any DLC sells a number beyond one, its how much
it sold that matters. There are no sales figures on it so any assumption is likely flawed. Your link isn't proof, its a marketplace listing sorted by unknown quantity. Horse armor is #8 behind such items as Spell Tomes (lol) and Mehrunes Razor. It's also the oldest DLC so if anything it should be #1 if it was a high seller but really no one knows because there are no sales figures to go by.
Again though not sure why you are focusing on that point. There are many other examples of impulse purchase behavior from the console market IMO, particularly when you look at the play counts on multiplayer DLC vs actual sales. The problem with blaming the console market is that there is a shitload of that behavior in the PC space as well. The whole PC gaming is dying thing gets old I agree but its forum war argument stuff that no one really takes seriously.
DLC in general is kind of crappy regardless of platform, there are some exceptions but overall its a concept that has only really panned out for the industrys pocketbooks IMO.
I can guaranteed I've owned more consoles than most of you.
I don't know why you would think that, this is a website with an older crowd as its core audience. If anything its a safe assumption that most people here probably predate some of your own experiences in one respect or another.This comment was edited on Jul 15, 2014, 21:17.
