The controversy of the exclusive DLCs has set a dangerous precedent for many. After Ubisoft’s announcement about the exclusivity for PS5 of the Avatar Frontiers of Pandora DLC, many see this situation as an attack against the user, since the content, despite being cosmetic, will only be available for PS5, although the game in general does not enjoy exclusivity with Sony.
We agree that money and economic revenue are important, and the video game industry is not exactly the exception to this. However, establishing such a controversial policy as charging for DLC (depending on the console) or making it exclusive depending on which platform is released, can be taken and with reason, such as an attack against the user. These are Ubisoft’s plans regarding additional content for Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
The controversy of the exclusive DLCs pervades the world of video games with the case of the new Avatar game that had created so much hype
Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is scheduled to arrive on December 7, however, the latest reprehensible decisions that Ubisoft has made in this regard have made it The platform that benefits the most from the arrival of the game is PS5. Apart from being an isolated event, this can also spread to other games and further contaminate the gaming industry. gaming that has been dotted with this kind of situation lately.
And this is neither more nor less because of the unfortunate policy that the Avatar Frontiers of Pandora DLC will only be available for the Sony console, which means that the rest of the players cannot enjoy this content. It is true that we are talking about something merely aesthetic, but it starts with something.
If this type of practice is consolidated, We are not surprised that in the future we will see more games carrying out this type of action, and even release complete story DLCs only for a certain platform despite not having exclusivity from the beginning. Only time and the community have the power to decide which path companies will end up taking based on our reaction to these confusing policies.
