Well, this isn’t exactly the good news I was hoping for. Trendy Entertainment announced that the smaller DLC for Dungeon Defenders won’t be making its way onto the XBLA or PSN versions of the title. The list of what won’t be making the journey is fairly extensive with the current and future Holiday DLC’s, the New Heroes Pack, the Barbarian Character, the Assault Mission Pack and Nightmare Mode to name a few. XBLA fans have reported that Trendy Entertainment had this to say on the official forums.
After much thought and investigation, we’ve decided it’s unfeasible from both a technical and business standpoint to bring the PC-only content (Holiday DLC, New Heroes Pack, Barbarian, Assault Mission Pack, Nightmare Mode, Shops, etc.) to the console versions. This is for a variety of reasons including the massive restructuring of the current console game that would have to take place, the QA process necessary to prepare for submission, patch size limitations, patch stacking requirements, and the opportunity cost of pursuing other projects.
While this is indeed unfortunate news, it’s not all bad news. The major expansion packs such as “The Lost Eternia Shards” are still going to make the jump, and there’s three more of those still to come.
So what say you, readers? Is this something you can live with, or are you going to be looking to pick up the PC version when it inevitably goes on sale again?
