Kaos: 360 getting Homefront DLC first due to strong support from Microsoft

Homefront’s senior level designer Rex Dickson has said the reason Kaos Studios and THQ are releasing DLC for the game on Xbox 360 first is due to the support Microsoft showed for the game.

Speaking with Eurogamer during THQ’s Gamer’s Week in New York, Dickson said the deal came about because Microsoft seemed more interested in getting involved with Homefront than Sony.

“It’s really just about them coming to us and saying they want to get involved,” he said. “You know, the PlayStation version is great, but Sony really didn’t come to us and say, ‘We want to support you and get behind you.’

“I think their focus right now is on Killzone. So that’s really how it all happened.”

THQ announced last week that all DLC for Homefront will arrive on Xbox 360 first and the console will also be getting an exclusive map called Suburbs.

Homefront hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 March 8 in the US and March 11 in the UK.

Gamespot has lots of new screens for the game posted here.

    Well, MS have to put their support behind something, seeing as they have very few first party games this year…

    First party games don’t mean anything. Looking at the list on the PS3, there are only 2 or 3 on the whole list worth my money, which is about the same as 360 exclusives. Exclusives are lame and mean nothing when you have all systems. Single system kiddies are the ones that seem to care most. Blind following sheep.

    I think this is one of the reasons why developers prefer MS to Sony. When devs get support from big guys, it makes their games better. Maybe that’s why the majority of cross-platform titles are better on the 360.

    ^ yea the rest you’ll pirate. STFU XBOT! This is another desperation move by M$. Secure timed exclusive DLC….LMAO pathetic and this is going to flop like no tomorrow. if I’m not excited about or for that matter never even bothered to research more about, 9 out of 10 its shit. This is a $30 game at best.

    @3 I was under the impression the 360 got better looking multi-format titles, due to it basically being a pc in console clothing & therefore easier to program for? Disagree somewhat about exclusives too. It’s not about fanboy bragging rights, its just good that a game has been built from the ground up for your console.

    Recent videos of Homefront has piqued my interest and I like the premise of the single player campaign. Let’s be honest with the success of Call of Duty, it’s hard for any other online multiplayer shooter to find much of a community on either console. PS3 gamers may be excited for Killzone 3 but they were just as excited for Killzone 2 and by April the game had no community. There were a handful of game even when you changed you search preference to worldwide. The game will find a small community and hopefully that’s enough for a great experience. Dedicated servers are a huge plus.
