Posted on August 22, 2008, Chris Xbox 360 Getting Team Fortress 2 Updates Later This Year — For a Price
The question has been raised a number of times: when, if ever, will console gamers be able to get in on the many updates Team Fortress 2 players on PC have been enjoying for months? Kotaku tracked down an answer to the oft-asked question at the Leipzig Games Convention, as Valve’s marketing director Doug Lombardi informed them that the updates are coming to Xbox 360 later this year, albeit for a price.
Having to pay for content that PC gamers get for free (not to mention much more quickly) will no doubt result in a fair number of complaints, but if the alternative is not getting the content at all, surely this is the preferable choice. The price and date haven’t been established as of yet, but don’t expect it to run you more than $10. Honestly, I wouldn’t hesitate to pay $10 for this week’s Heavy update, let alone that plus the Medic and Pyro updates.
Unfortunately for PS3 gamers, there’s still no word if Valve will ever bring the updates to Sony’s system. Given Gabe Newell’s stance on the PS3, you probably shouldn’t hold your breath.
