I had no idea they hadn't released the disc & DLC version simultaneously.

That one's easy: $$$

What would you rather sell - separate DLC components who's sum cost is far greater than the cost of an expansion disk… or a traditional expansion through the traditional retail route which comes complete with all the usual overheads and people taking their share of the final retail price?

Still, good to see the traditional route is finally getting some attention.

Not only that, you can be sure that MS is pushing (possibly incentivizing) going DLC for a time period.

It's also interesting to note, that they are only sending out review copies of the 360 version. NOTHING is forthcoming for the PC release. Shows where their priorities lie, doesn't it!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!
