Thunderpizza I like this logic,
Ubi Boss: PC HAS MOAR EXCLUSIVES. MAKE MOAR CONSOLE STUFF.

Console specific DLC is just messed up, not only do others miss the content but the company as a hole misses that opportunity to get the extra money out of it. I'm ok with timed dlc but not holding out from giving it to everyone.
Did you do that on purpose?
Do what? Misspell whole?
Yep,

must admit after the whole Skyrim DLC crap on the PS3 this made me happy.

It's a bit of a weird decision by Ubisoft though!

Well i guess it aint so bad that the co-op is pretty boring then.

Hate format specific DLC wither its for or against me. Its just a completely terrible idea.

I'll be buying used ubisoft games from now on.

FFS Ubisoft. PS3 Exclusive. Stop letting sony milk you. Id say the same thing to EA for the PS3 timed exclusive maps and Activision for Xbox 360 exclusive timed maps (even though thats my primary console).

Ouch, I'm on PS3 but I feels for you people. I hate Exclusive DLC when it's against me, and this is messed up when you consider Far Cry was pretty PC-centric with the first 2 entries. Same with EA and the Battlefield 3 stuff.

Hope you guys get this in time.

I'm wondering if the money Sony pays Ubisoft to make it an exclusive, pays more than what they would get if Xbox and PC got the dlc. Wouldn't they get more profit?

Ubisoft got back to us about exclusivity. It's definitely exclusive (not timed). Article updated to reflect this.

Ubisoft is getting larger and larger. At the same time some of their actions are getting less and less self-explanitory.
I remember liking them when it was just the original rayman (platforming masterpiece) and tomb raider (exploring, tiger shootan, shirt ballonan masterpiece). Since then Ubisoft has been more or less picking the right developers and pushing them in the right direction. Ever since they decided to touch assasins creed beyond the first game, blowing up tom clancy, and letting rabbids exist they have become a very questionable developer in my eyes. The chaotic neutral so to speak. That doesnt stop them from being the HUGE publisher that they are today. I mean, just look at the sales figures for Far Cry 3, AC3, and Just Dance 4. Just astronomical. Still, they have made me raise an eyebrow more than once over the past week or so.
If you are going to bother developing a game for 3 consoles, you might as well release dlc for them all as well. More money right? I mean seriously, I have my money pinned that a majority portion of the FC3 community is rooted on the xbox. Maybe this is a sign that the ps3 has a lot still going for it? After all, Sony is most likely going to be the 'third child' of the next generation, so to speak. With the wii u out and some vague details regarding microsoft splitting the new xbox, the current iteration of the playstation has a lot more time to kill before it is phased out. Perhaps this randomly exclusive dlc, along with a strong 2012-2013 exclusives list is any indication.
