Why do Xbox owners have to play full retail for less of a game at launch? PS3 gets extra ccharacter plus bonus levels as an exclusive launch. Then will Xbox 360 owners have to pay for the DLC later? Does this justify playing full retail, then have to play an extra 5-10 dollars to play the extra content when its all in the retail version of PS3 for $59.99.
Why not charge Xbox 360 owners $49.99 so they can have the option to purchase the missing content via DLC.

Sorry, but that's not going to happen.

DC had a deal with Sony.

If Sony did the deal, then where is the marketing? Why haven't I seen a commercial backed by Sony or cardboard stands at Gamestop. Why is there not a billboard out if Sony got the deal locked in? Microsoft did a hell of a job in marketing exclusives, and not shy at all.

Now, where has the money went in to the promotion of Exclusive Content and Sony's endorsement?

Well, there might be that whole online ad that appeared exclusively on the Sony Home Networ.. You do realize that a deal between a company and a brand does not mean that they have a role in the marketing? It just means that they have guaranteed content, just like the 360 has some exclusive DLC.

Yeah, big ad there,... go sony psn. :(

Why should PS3 owners be concerned at all for the marketing of this game? If this exclusive deal was to bite Edios in the rear, then Edios would fail, and no money to work on the sequel right away. Why should Sony get a free ride? They should care for the 3rd party developers if they plan on making the PS3 a 10 year console. Every developer and publisher should be important to them. Europe and US publishers seems to be treated like 2nd rate citizen from Sony though my eyes.
Microsoft may have the ****tiest console in the market, but its more successful than the PS3 due to aggressive marketing. That there is what Sony needs, staying quiet and having their product sell theirselves hasn't proven to be effective around these days. Is Sony showing us their laziness or their shelfish pride?

LMAO! I don't think so.

Then GTA IV and FO3 should be $39.99 without the DLC.

It is not coming in the game. It will be addition content to be DL. The purchased release content for both will be similar.
