DLC is such a vague term. I miss the days of full blown expansions, not shitty costume packs and in-game money. I hope that Sleeping Dogs' expansions are predominantly mission packs and not cars and outfits. We shall see!

6 months of DLC usually means around 4-5 months of meaningless cash grab cosmetic style DLC's like outfits, cars, characters, weapons, and around 1-2 months (meaning 1 or 2) mission packs or meaningful game content that expands the universe.

Exactly. Expansions aren't the norm they once were.

Are you serious? Extra little things that are now DLC was always present in form of Collector's Editions and Pre-Order bonuses. Thanks to digital marketplaces like Steam, PlayStation Network, and XBOX Live, they can now offer a greater variety of things that they used to be only able to offer in re-release versions or Collector's Editions.

Expansions are slowly fading out of view, yeah, so? There's no need to release a brand new campaign for games with online components because like it or not, the majority of people prefer online expansions in the form of maps because it extends the online experience, which is far better than the single-player because you can do it with friends. What can you do with the Skyrim expansion coming soon? Play it through a couple of different ways and then shelve it because there's no online component. What can I do with virtually any Call of Duty map pack? Enjoy the maps repeatedly while playing against people in many different hours. I'll guarantee you I'll have ten times more fun on a map pack for an online game than any single-player expansion.

All DLC is a "cash-grab", that's the *bleep*ing point of DLC. Expansions and the way post-release content is handled has evolved. Deal with it.
