    Why? If it was released on all formats would the PS3 owners be disapointed?

    Your kidding me right?
    I don't think that exclusive content for games is good for any platform, it's excluding part of the game for paying customers.

    Exclusive content isnt good for the public but it is good for the console makers which is why ms paid so much for gta exclusivity.

    My thoughts exactly. Surely DLC on all platforms will generate more revenue for the original developers rather than keeping it exclusive on one platform?

    Competition between hardware manufacturers and software houses is usually a very good thing for the public, its why there were so many good games at the end of 2008 that I'm still playing through some of them now, it's the reason for hardware price cuts, the reason MS stood by the 360 with a 3 year warranty etc.

    Exclusive DLC is just another way to try and compete and it's one that makes an awful lot of sense for Sony seeing as most multiformat titles usually do much better on 360 than on PS3.

    Which is why I wouldn't suprised if the content is only exclusive to PS3 owners for a limited time, Namco did something similar with Yoda and Darth Vader for Soul Calibur 4 and there's rumours going about that Lost and Damned isn't going to be 360 exclusive forever.

    I really don't get your point with that, i'm not referring to any profiteering by the publishers, DLC is genrally a money making skam anyway so publishers are more likely push one format with exclusive dlc with the money they could make.
    It still doesn't stop it being a bad thing all round for customers and when it's somthing that's obviously already made as part of the game it's just rather pathetic.
