The heavily-anticipated, well-received, and generally loved Batman: Arkham City had DLC issues at launch that should have been more carefully tested and fixed before it was released to the masses. Rocksteady’s Sara Wellock however has pointed the finger at Sony and Microsoft.
Wellock admitted that they were getting reports from a small amount of people, and that the problem is being looked into. Users who downloaded the DLC provided with the game were met with a message saying “downloadable content is corrupt”, and being unable to progress. The recommended solution if you are struck by this is to completely reinstall the DLC altogether.
When someone suggested this was a developer problem, Wellock stated that the game was released because it went through extensive testing and problem solving, and that the problem is on the side of Sony and Microsoft. Because the game has not been fully developed for PAL regions, only the US will get this testing.
I personally believe this is a developer issue, because two completely different companies with two completely different consoles having the same DLC problems? Sorry but that doesn’t fly with me. This is why I have a dislike for DLC, there are problems that can be run straight into and the company making them doesn’t fully control the distribution.
As long as deleting the content and re-downloading it solves the problem then this isn’t a huge deal.
True, but if it corrupts the first time, nothing stops subsequent corruptions. If there is an issue with the download file itself then there’s going to be a lot of highly frustrated people out there.
I agree, and if that is the case, then that is most certainly unacceptable, but if the download file itself was corrupt then everyone would be having this issue not just a small number.
There are often multiple servers with the same file in cases like this. There have been times where the mass download of content from a single server caused the entire thing to blow to smithereens locking out everyone. Having many servers with the same file resolves this and sharply increases the amount who can get it, but if one of them is corrupt then anyone who gets that server will be ruined.
So whats the answer? I tried to delete and re-install the content but it’s not working.
