The upcoming World War II open-world game The Saboteur will feature DLC available at launch that adds nudity to the title. Along with the exposed breasteses, "The Midnight Show" DLC also adds a gambling mini-game and a small secret area in the game where players can get lap-dances.
The pricing is where things get interesting, though. A code will come with the game that unlocks the content, so, in a sense it's free. If you don't buy the game, though, you'll have to pay $4.99 to download it. That means that gamers who rent, borrow, copy, find, or otherwise acquire the game will have to pay for the content.
To be fair, it sounds like this DLC adds purely aesthetic features to the title, but, viewed from a certain angle, in order to get a "complete" copy of the Saboteur, you'll essentially have to tack an extra five bucks onto the used-game price. I can see why a game company would resort to this tactic, but, as a guy who likes to lend out games to friends when I'm finished with them, I think this is sort of sucky. Not sucky like it would be if a game company left out something important in a game, but just a little sucky.
Would you pay the five bucks for digital boobies? What do you think of this strategy?
