Downloadable content is one of the biggest hot button issues in this industry, with both passionate proponents of additional paid content and folks who believe it should all ship with the game for one flat price.
Whichever side of the tracks you find yourself on, we can all agree that "free" is a really good price for most things. Lightbox Interactive has announced that every map pack for their just-released third-person shooter Starhawk will be available free of charge as part of their post-launch support plans.
Dylan Jobe, President at Lightbox, made the announcement over ath the official PlayStation blog, saying...
We really didn’t like how in Warhawk when we released a new map pack, it forced these divisions on our players. And after we released three expansions, our player community was pretty fractured. With Starhawk that ends!
We are incredibly excited to announce that all map packs for Starhawk will be free. Yeah, you read that right…FREE. Whenever we release a map pack you won’t have to pay a friggin’ dime!
