Left 4 Dead DLC

Left 4 Dead DLC

Speaking about the upcoming Left 4 Dead DLC Crash Course, Valve’s Chet Faliszek has stated that it was Microsoft’s decision to charge for the content on Xbox 360.

The content, free to all PC-owners, will cost 560 MS points on Xbox as Microsoft “wanted to make sure there’s an economy of value there”. Pressed further on the issue he said the following:

Well, they helped us get the first one out for free. We had the one DLC out for free. And I think… they have to look and say, wow, we’re kind of being unfair to everybody else if these guys can do that.

In other news, the sky is blue and fire is hot. Who knew.
