As many of you may know Mass Effect 2’s DLC doesn’t quite work in the way that other DLC works, instead you receive a code when you buy an original copy of the game, this code allows access to gain access to DLC before anyone else, better still it looks as if it will be free.
One of the disadvantages to consumers is that it will mean that people who buy trade-ins will not have access to this DLC as the original purchaser will probably have used the code.
Obviously this will have more benefits for game developers as people will see more value in buying original games rather then saving a few dollars on a trade-in, many people are worrying that other developers will unveil their own versions of “The Cerberus Network”, which in the long term means more original games will be purchased.
Whilst I understand the reasoning behind this idea I feel that it is pretty annoying for gamers, lets face it games aren’t cheap at the best of times, therefore sometimes gamers need to save a few cents by buying a trade-in.
