PC (again) is not getting these DLCs. Nice move EA... oh wait, you can't release the DLC on the PC because of licensing problems, right? -.-

I'm happy I traded in my PS3 copy towards God of War 3. Shift was fun for about a week. Shouldn't have trusted that GT review.

Btw, here's their answer to my comment on YouTube:

"The Exotics Racing Series DLC for Need for Speed SHIFT won't be released on the PC platform because of the tech and resources involved in developing the delivery of the DLC. During development of SHIFT, we chose to pursue exceptional game quality over implementing the systems required to support premium post-release content for every platform. Given the community ratings of Need for Speed SHIFT, as well as the accolades the game has received, we believe the right decision was made."

This sounds like a politic speaking lol, lots of words but zero content. What an excuse...

EA is a business first and foremost, and as such it's goal is to maximize profits. Now the fact that they didn't bother with DLC for the PC tells me that either the size of the PC community (or at least the part of it that regularly plays online) is not big enough to justify it, or that the number of people who would crack the DLC would far outpace the number that would buy it legally. The most recent example of DLC for PC that I know is Burnout Paradise, in which DLC support was abandoned mostly due to the first reason, so I'm thinking the same reason applies here.

Also, I don't really care for DLC seeing as my laptop runs Linux and my Xbox360 is an arcade unit without HDD nor internet connection.

pff... they will be ashamed when modders totally crack Shift.
so, first dlc , only for xbox, and second only for consoles, i may as well as forget about EA now. glad World Online will be free, i doubt i will buy anything from them. No PC support equals no support at all for me, i aint buying a console just to pay 2x as much for games , not as good graphics and less freedom than a PC just to get some cars as DLC, obviously overpriced too.

I will never buy a console! as ElvenAvenger said there is so much more freedom on a PC! not to mention the potential for much better graphics. A friend of mine just purchased the PC version of shift and now its looking like a big mistake.

Somebody can correct me on this if I'm wrong. But to me, it sounds like EA doesn't have a way to properly distribute DLC for the PC without giving it away for free? Is this correct?

Considering the precedent set by Burnout Paradise, no, I don't think that's the case here.

I already thought about that, to be honest. The best way to release a DLC on the PC is to bring a patch along with it, like we had with the first (and so far only) PC DLC for SHIFT. This way they make sure that whoever installs the DLC will also install a patch, and if you're using a cracked version of the game, you won't be able to play (at least for a while). If you have a legal version of the game, then installing a patch is a must IMO, because you certainly want the best gaming experience. And along with the patch you get a DLC that you have to pay for.

I don't understand why they don't do this, it sounds like a good solution if piracy is what they're afraid of...
