Submission + - Why Blu-ray and DLC don’t see eye to eye in (

BanjoTed writes: Are you enjoying Dragon Age: Origins Awakening on PS3 in America? Well in Europe we're not. Sony has told MCV that the cost of producing Blu-ray SKUs is the reason behind why many of the boxed expansion packs that get released on Xbox 360 and PC only get a PSN release on PS3 on this side of the Atlantic. A number of games — including Dragon Age, Borderlands and Fallout 3 — have seen their post-release DLC get bundled onto disc and sold at retail on Microsoft's machines, but the exact reason behind their failure to do the same on PS3 has until now been a bit of a mystery. The truth? It all boils down to the cost of producing Blu-ray discs.
