Mirror's Edge Gets Exclusive PS3 DLC

By Chris Faylor, Sep 02, 2008 7:32am PDT Reversing the trend of Xbox 360-exclusive downloadable content in multi-platform games, Sony has revealed that EA DICE's parkour-inspired first-person action game Mirror's Edge (PC, PS3, 360) will sport some PlayStation 3-only DLC.

"Exclusive downloadable content will be offered on the PlayStation Network," Sony Computer Entertainment informed Eurogamer. "PlayStation has an exclusive marketing agreement with EA regarding the title."

No details were offered as to what that content will be. DICE previously told Shacknews that the PS3 version of the Unreal Engine 3-powered game was leading development.

The title now opposes Bethesda's Fallout 3 and Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto IV in the brewing DLC conflict of 2008, with GTA4 receiving exclusive DLC on the Xbox 360 and Fallout 3 getting PC and 360-only downloadable content.

  • on the one hand, it's silly to have exclusive DLC on the principle that it's an artificial barrier; on the other, if it's content that wouldn't be created in the first place without the additional financial incentive, it's a good thing if it's good content.

    if it's content that would have been universal before the roping off, then it's bad for gamers, obviously

    that said, I'm a fan of console exclusive games because they tend to be better optimized for specific systems. many cross platform games are technically rubbish compared to console exclusives. I was playing MGS4 recently and it's ridiculous what can be eked out visually when devs focus on one system and don't need to downscale to the lowest common denominator in features between systems
