Xbox To Receive The Division Content 30 Days Early



/ 3 years ago

Tom Clancy's The Division

When it comes to choosing where to play your game the fight is never-ending. From the Console Wars to the PC master race, people have preferences based on everything from initial cost to the games that are available. With consoles like the Xbox One looking to give you the ability to play those old games, people are often looking to find not only how to play those new games but to do so without having to buy their favourites all over again. One of the biggest debates when it comes to games is exclusive content, or even delaying content on certain platforms, something that Ubisoft are looking to do with Tom Clancy’s the Division.

After being praised for its PC settings and for not being just another PC port, Ubisoft is desperate for PC gamers to like them as release after release they seem to only end up with bad press and annoyed customers. The cherry atop these comments was made that claimed PC gamers were just “pirates”, a phrase used to describe people who obtain illegal copies of games without paying for them. This was found to be particularly insulting given Ubisoft’s lack of support and regard for their PC releases (often considered poor ports).

Now it would seem they are looking to insult gamers once more, this time on for people using the PS4, as Tom Clancy’s The Division is to release content 30 days early to Xbox One players. This isn’t the first time that games have done this, with many games releasing content just for a certain platform but sometimes just delaying its release for other platforms.

In the video below, which seems like a giant sales pitch for the Xbox One more than the game at times, it explains that the Xbox One will receive content earlier than “Sony will see it”. Not explaining if this delay also applies to PC gamers, people are often held back by their choices but delaying content seems to be a favourite for companies, which only seems to annoy players. Why does one group get content before another for anything other than a paycheck for the companies?

What do you think? Are you annoyed by companies getting content early or exclusively? Tell us your thoughts about this below and if this will even impact in which platform you’ll be getting the game for.

    If i and the xbox player paying the same amount of money for the same content , why should he get it 30 days earlier than me ? , That is totally unfair
    also ,imagine during these 30 days how many videos and spoilers you will see , and how much that will ruin your experience as a non-xbox gamer.
    Beside that after you see this amount of content already during this whole 30 days, you wont feel that excitement to buy that DLC as every bit of it already spoiled.
