Crash Course Crash and Burn? [UPDATE of an UPDATE]


New DLC for Left 4 Dead just released, but there is a slight snag…In August I reported that Crash Course would be 560 microsoft points for the Xbox 360 version.

In the 40 minutes that the content has been released, the internet has nerd raged (myself included) cause the game is 800 MSP. 560 was a number we could all agree on, it was half the content of a normal campaign, so it’s half the price of normal DLC.

Is this just a glitch in the system? Is 800 points a place holder they forgot to take off? Will people that bought it anyway get a refund, or are we destined to spend the 800 to get the new content. I know a lot of people are unhappy, we will just have to wait until daylight if there are any updates.

While us Xbox gamers complain about not getting cheap content, PS3 owners complain about not getting the game. We really need to pick our battles better…

Crash Course on the Xbox Live Marketplace

UPDATE: Major Nelson’s twitter feed says that the 800 point price is wrong and is being looked into. He also says it may take a few hours or more to fix the problem all over the globe. Crash Course WILL be 560, just wait until it’s updated.

UPDATE 2: Yo dawg, we heard you like updates, so we put an update in your update so you can update people about Crash Course while you update people about Crash Course being 560 on the market place now. Enjoy!

    even though i play this game religiously i will not buy a 2 part campaign for 800 Ms Points. I would rather go spend $20 more and buy the game for the PC. If i new that the xbox 360 was going to be this much of a money pit i would never bought it. And for all the people out there buying stuff from the marketplace think about this, what is going to happen to all your digital content once the 360 is no more?????.

      This is actually the first DLC you have to pay for. Survival mode was free. As for DLC content after the 360 is gone, once you download it the content is on your system. You aren’t streaming it each time you use it. So unless your hard drive dies, you should always have the content.

      Please correct me if I’m wrong
