I just beat Mario Kart on the WIi-U. This was my first experience with Nintendo dangling the DLC carrot. I'm having a hard time remembering what the first console DLC I ever purchased since they became a thing around the 360 generation. It might have been a Modern Warfare (2007) DLC with Microsoft Points. Did we ever get the "why aren't woman hairy thing sorted?" Yikes!!
Console players, what was your first purchased DLC?
My first console DLC ever is a weird point of pride for me. I bought DLC for Project Gotham Racing 2. Looking into it a bit, it was released in 2004, which were the early and weird days of Xbox Live. I used to stay up late playing PGR2 with a random group of friends from around the world. Super cool stuff.
I think they were free at the time, but if not it would be Halo 2 map packs back in 2005
Halo 2 map packs were not free initially. You would have to pay for them and they would have their own playlist. When the next pack came out, the previous one became free and those maps were then added into regular playlists.
The first console game, I THINK, I downloaded DLC for is SOCOM 2. The games KIllzone and Battlefield 2 on PS2 had DLC for online play maps for sure. And, of course, FF 11 came with the PS 2 HDD. When Final Fantasy came bundled with a 40 GB drive the stories said, "Resident Evil: Outbreak and Syphon Filter: the Omega Strain also plan on using the device." SO they *might* have had stuff too.
If anyone bought FF11 at launch, I'd be shocked if their first console DLC wasn't on PS2; or if they owned Dreamcast it was on that. Ubiquitous, paid DLC came later on consoles; so that might have been more negative and thus more memorable.
I think it must have been Undead Nightmare. I definitely got all the Oblivion DLC earlier than that, but I installed it all off a friend's GOTY Xbox disc and didn't pay for it, so that doesn't count. To this day, I generally don't buy DLC unless it's along the lines of a traditional expansion pack.
It's going to be some sort of 'Gold edition' of a game that i bought later on. I still hardly buy DLC for games to be honest. The first time i really went on steam and was like 'okay i need these DLC's ' was probably.. Civilization 5?
My first expansion pack.. now that's probably something like Black & White Creature Islands.
It's hard to remember, but I'm going to say it was one of the DLCs for Sleeping Dogs (idk which of the three expansions). I enjoyed that game to the point that any reason to spend more time with it was a good reason; so, even though the DLC packs were kind of B-Movie quality, I had a great time playing all of them. 👍
