Team Fortress 2 360 DLC Details Due 'Pretty Soon,' Fate of PlayStation 3 Content Uncertain

10
Speaking to Shacknews at last week's EA Spring Showcase, Valve Software marketing director Doug Lombardi addressed the state of downloadable content for Team Fortress 2 on consoles.

"We're looking at bringing the Goldrush and the new achievements and stuff out to the 360," Lombardi said. Valve internally developed the PC and 360 versions of TF2, with the PS3 edition outsourced to EA UK.

"How and when is still sort of being determined, on pricing and that kind of stuff. On the PC it's sort of wide open, you can release stuff whenever you want. On the console there's a little bit more of a pathway."

Since its release last October, Valve has supplied the PC version of Team Fortress 2 with two major updates. As of yet, no content updates have been provided for the console versions of the title.

"What we've been waiting for is until we had a critical mass of new content to put out," Lombardi added. "So we feel like we're kind of there now. We'll probably be making some announcements pretty soon on what will happen with the 360 stuff. I don't know that--unfortunately I don't know that any of that will make it to the PS3."

      That's the only way that I can play it. It's still great fun and there's a huge number of people that play.

        Not that this game is all that fun in general but overall I feel this way.

          I think we will just ignore that comment as to not start a flame war.

        Gotta be a little less obvious than that if you want to start a good flamewar. Throw in a few obviously wrong reasons why consoles are better and then talk about how PC gaming is dying. That should get things going.

        Why don't pro PC gamers use gamepads then?
