Xbox 360 DLC upper hand over PS3 continues

By Alan Ng - Mar 7, 2013

We have some important news for those of you who have just picked up a copy of the excellent Tomb Raider game. While some of you may have already completed the single player campaign, there is also a multiplayer mode to get stuck into. We’ve just had confirmation that the first piece of DLC for the game has been detailed, and is also going to be releasing first on Xbox 360 as another Microsoft exclusive.

Microsoft really has some bargaining powers it seems, as Tomb Raider is the latest game in 2013 to succumb to the latest money talks trend. The first piece of add-on content for the game will be called Caves & Cliffs and will be releasing very soon on March 19.

This multiplayer content will add three new maps to the game, already identified as Scavenger Caverns, Cliff Shantytown and Burning Village. As noted on the offcial Tomb Raider blog, these three new maps will be playable on all four multiplayer modes in the game – Rescue, Cry for Help, Team Deathmatch, and Free for All.

If you are interested in picking ths up, it will be priced at 400 Microsoft Points upon release. At the moment, there is no word at all on when this will be landing on the PS3 and PC. Is it going to be a standard month’s wait like Skyrim and Call of Duty content?

We thought that the whole timed-exclusivity bandwagon would ease up a little as we enter the next-generation of consoles phase. However, based on this instance – it doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon. If you have the PS3 or PC version of the game, let us know your thoughts on Tomb Raider going exclusive with Microsoft.

    All this means is that I will wait longer to buy Ps3 games. In the end, if the publisher doesn’t feel that the PS3 deserves updates/DLC, then they don’t want or deserve my money. I lost a lot of respect for Bethesda over the Skyrim DLC failure.

    XPox users get more timed exclusives as the average age of an XPox user is lower than that of PS3 and we all know that children get somewhat impatient. PS3, on the other hand, gets exclusive IPs like Naughty Dog’s work. I know which I prefer.
