In a week that exclusive content is paramount in attracting the most attention, Microsoft and the Xbox brand have announces that the DLC for four major upcoming titles will see release on Xbox Live before making appearances on other consoles and marketplaces.
In addition to Activision bringing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC to Xbox first, Capcom will release Resident Evil 6 DLC, Square Enix will launch Tomb Raider DLC, and THQ will release South Park: The Stick of Truth DLC; all on Xbox 360 first. With all of these games currently sitting atop many “most anticipated” lists, these announcements should do well for Microsoft.
Announcements such as these will serve to sway those who are having a difficult time deciding which platform to purchase on. Resident Evil 6 will release October 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will launch on November 13, and both Tomb Raider and South Park: The Stick of Truth will release on March 5, 2013.
