Xbox 360

Yea I know it is a little bit old, but I figured some people could be interested by this video of the downloadable expansion pack for Stranglehold on the Xbox 360. Too bad no one is playing it online, but it's still worth a look if you like action games.

The expansion pack contains : 21 new player skins and 10 new multiplayer maps. It is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

And with them charging 1200 MS points for this DLC the number of players online will not improve, that's for sure.. What are they thinking??

MS and the publishers simply don't get it.. To get your game popular and built some kind of fanbase you should give *free* DLC, not this kind of BS.. On the PC the industry knows they have to give this stuff for free to keep the fans interested (any online game that doesn't get free official DLC or some sort of editor so the community can make it themselfs will eventually fail), on the consoles they're not there yet, on those platforms they use it only as a tool to make some extra money (which only works for the really popular games)..

Like Kudgel said, Stranglehold is already not very popular.. They could have made an impact by giving this pack away for free (or at least cheaper then most other DLC on Xbox Live) and maybe get this game more popular.. But no, they dropped the ball again because of greed..

It's just skins and maps.. Stuff any kid with a bit of skill can make with an editor, so it's not exactly costing them a fortune to make.. Hell, even I made skins for a few games in the past, and I know nothing.. It's just greed, nothing else..

Way way overpriced but that's all to do with Midway, the publisher sadly. If it's an attempt to make up for underwhelming sales then it will fail.

By and large, it's their first foray into the DLC market though, hopefully they'll learn.

Exactly...same goes to XBLA, price it too expensive and everytime when i try to play matchmaking - sorry, no games were found.
Only those free XBLA or really famous one like bomberman, you get players....

We can blame M$ too, they've made it clear they don't want free DLC on Live... 1200 points is ridiculous, though.

I'd still like to play this.. I hear some Target stores have the PC version for under $15. It might actually be worth it at that point.

The game itself is actually quite decent. It's problem was the competition at the time and throughout Fall. I've got a copy but it's still un-opened. (Damn backlog)

MS advise publishers to promote their games with free content as well as paid.
