Add the free Kinect Sport Party Pack to your Xbox 360 download queue

Free, Game Add-on By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

    This is great for people with these Kinect games! I remember though when it was announced joyride would be free and add ons for it would cost money haha.

  • Mcmax3000

    Nice. I’ll definitely be downloading that Kinect Sports add-on. Was not expecting it to be free.

  • MetalGearFloppy

    How come Kinect sports gets free DLC with achievements, yet when Valve wanted to make L4D DLC free with achievements they were told they had to charge?
    It’s a question that’s been puzzling quite a few people on the xbox.com forums, so an answer would be appreciated.

    Were Valve fibbing?

  • twisted poke

    Hmm, I was actually wondering the same thing as MetalGearFloppy. Would be nice to hear an explanation but I seriously doubt we get anything from Larry as he seems to usually be too busy tweeting about the weather then actually answering a pertinent question that many folks in the community would like to know.

    Atleast it’s not all bad. There’s free dlc. I guess that pads it out with all the major flaws etc.

  • Vulak Aerr

    I’ll throw my two pence in:

    Ubisoft just released a free map for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and a free game mode.
    EA have been consistently releasing new content for Bad Company 2.
    EA also released many free updates for Burnout Paradise.

    Make of that what you will.

    @ MetalGearFloppy
    Yeah, Valve messed with you customers really and blamed MS (who didn’t care).
    MS charges the companies (EA, Valve, Rare) for the storage on live, and bandwith they use for DLC, updates and such. IF you release a content for Free, you pay for the costs, if you charge say 800MS points for the DLC, MS takes a bit of the profit but leaves you with the rest.

    So, Valve didn’t want to pay MS, hence they made the buyer pay, earned a lot on the DLC and could blame MS/make them look like the bad guys, when it really was just Greedy Valve (again).

    OnT:
    Nice, free stuff is a great way to show that you care for your (paying) customers. Will get the joyride DLC at least :)
