    I suspect that there will be DLC for consoles but Namco is waiting till last minute to announce it to maximize PC sales.

    If there is no DLC...I will devour the firstborn child of every Namco supporter twisted

    Well they did walk around with their heads held high saying "Dark Souls is a complete game, there will be no DLC" before Dark Souls was released. So technically they can fall back on this and say "we told you so". But why wouldn't they want more money? Beats me. 😕

    Yea I'm sure they wont leave us who were there from the beginning with our balls out in the cold, they could if they felt like it, but here's to hoping they wont.

    This attitude is to be expected from a company that would make a game like DeS or DkS. They are obviously works of Passion guided by a real artistic vision, as opposed to strictly money making endeavors. So I would expect an artist to feel their art is finished and want a new project. If FROM was solely interested in the moneys DeS would have never been made.

    So continue to expect odd behavior from them, and be worried the moment they become predictable.

    This is true, but the PC version and potential DLC is being done by Namco, not From. Namco distributed the North American version of Dark Souls. So a cash grab is not entirely out of the question. Furthermore, with the way videogames have been retailed lately i.e., on disc DLC, multiple versions of the same game (I'm looking at you Capcom fighting games), it wouldn't be surprising if they packaged a whole new game and charged 60 bucks for it.

    Doesn't seem like a Namco thing to do. I bet we'll just get DLC

    I think they would actually lose money if they pumped out more discs to be honest 🇳🇴

    I doubt they'll do it. They'll keep quiet about DLC until the PC copy hits, let it sell for a few weeks then mention DLC for consoles which will bring players back and help push out a few more copies of the game.
