View Full Version : Internet connection needed to get pre-order DLC?
02-21-2010, 01:59 PM
Hey all i know its probably been discussed before, and MCM has posted details about the free DLC, but i was just wonderin whether you need xbox live or PSN to claim the free stuff.
I guess there probably isn't a certain answer but does anyone know from experience of similar games whether you can just get the stuff without internet connection?
Might sound like bull **** to you but i dont know whether its possible..

awwww shame, havent got mine hooked up yet. i remember far cry 2, i got a code when i pre-ordered that and i typed it in and got the new content without internet :confused:

... Has it been confirmed that it is content that you actually download?
Or is it something where you are downloading a key file that's like 150kb just to unlock the content in-game..? e.g. milking the consumer in order get more money..

As long as you have some sort of income, and you can afford to buy it, you can buy an Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter from many retail shops, for instance:

I don't know about PS3 accessories.
And of course you'll need somewhere to connect to the net, if you don't own a Wireless Router, just hope you know someone who does, and lets you use it. good luck

well for the DLC to be downloadable, they'd need to physically be on PSN at the release date. Therefore, it probably already is available on the disc and just unlocked with a code

hmm yeah thats what i thought, seeing as that happens quite a lot in other games and they havent said you need to download it off the internet- all they said was that its free.
could mean that its put on the disc for ya already, you just need the code, cause its not likely that you go onto PSN or whatever and it asks you for a code :/

DLC stands for downloadable content, use ur head man!!!!
I mean if u didn't have to download it, wouldn't it be extra content, and they give us keys on a sheet in the box which will either download a key code(because the info is on the disc already) or download all of the content, which is more likely.

yeahhh sorry Nuke1st, just that i got my hopes up and wished that they called in DLC.. just cause theres no other name for it :D

Why do you think it's called DOWNLOADABLE Content (DLC)? Of course you need an internet connection to download it.
