The downloadable content that hit the PC version of Dungeon Defenders won’t be coming to the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions, according to developer Trendy Entertainment. The company cites various reasons for the decision, like patch size limitations and stacking requirements.
“This is for a variety of technical and business reasons including patch size limitations and patch stacking requirements, as well as the massive restructuring of the current console game that would have to take place, the QA processes necessary to prepare those changes for submission, and the opportunity cost of pursuing other projects,” the company said on its forums (via Eurogamer). They cite one example, in that the patch stacking on Xbox Live Arcade would force everyone who bought the game to download an very large set of updates whether they had the DLC or not.
That means that PC-only content (the Holiday DLC, New Heroes Pack, Barbarian, Assault Mission Pack, Nightmare Mode, Shops, etc) will stay that way. Console players will still get access to parts I-IV of the Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards pack, plus the associated weapons and pets. The team will also submit a console patch this month, which will include bug fixes and balancing changes, and maybe even a few weapons and pets. But again, Trendy feels hamstrung by low RAM limitations.
