The DLC for FFXIII-2

he landscape of the modern console video game has changed so much in the last ten years, with the revenue stream of games also changing.  It used to be the box price that represented the sole income for game publishers, but the introduction of Downloadable Content (DLC) changed the basic equation.  That addition to gaming has some controversy associated with it, particularly when a game developer includes DLC content in the main release and then sells the DLC in the form of codes that unlock the content already on the game disc, a development that has been met with hostility by many gamers who do not feel that it is a fair way to sell added game content, but most gamers agree that expanding games via DLC is still a good thing.

In the case of Final Fantasy XIII-2 the types of DLC available spans the entire spectrum, with the traditional expansion content, plus new special weapons, armor and outfits, accessories, and added battles for the arena.  As of press time the following DLC has been released for the game (some of which was originally released as pre-order bonus content):
