A couple of days ago, I gave three examples of how NOT to do DLC, so for the sake of karma I thought I would also give three examples of how to do DLC.

As part of a worrying trend, last week Dante’s Inferno joined the increasingly long list of games that have had a patch on the first day of release. The 1.01 patch was apparently already live last Thursday for the Australian release of the game, and lo and behold, was there when we fired up the game on Friday, so US gamers will have it to look forward to tomorrow.

The PlayStation Video Store first came to our attention back at E3 2008, when it was simultaneously announced and launched during the Sony press conference.
It took until November 2009 for the Video Store to hit European shores, so we decided to take it for a little more than the usual test drive and see if we could live on just the Video Store for our movie viewing needs for a month.
Here’s the story of what happened…
In an interview with IGN, High Voltage – creators of Wii exclusive ‘The Conduit’ – have announced that their next game, ‘The Grinder’, will be making the jump to the PS3 as well. Can this game succeed where The Conduit failed?
