Now could they possibly fix the console problems and give us DLC?

doubtful…this is the new trend these days for pc companies,to put out games on consoles as a quick cashgrab and then forget it exists…even valve has done it and they’re hardly pinching pennies 🙁

Keep in mind that PC support is much easier to have. Coding is simple and more people buy it because it is cheaper in the end. I am a console gamer, and admittedly not really a DLC person. I only download DLC for games I like, and even then I barely play it. Its costly, and takes time to install.

DLC not coming to consoles is one thing,though its hardly impossible to get approved and put out on,but patches are another as they are giving a terrible broken version of their games to console players to get their base money and then pretending like it doesn’t exist
