How do you get lost and the damned?

Recommended Posts

Ok, now I know this question may sound stupid, but I'm kind of new to this whole Xbox 360 world, since I just got it for christmas. So, apparently, I've heard that this new Lost and the Damned game is supposed to be "downloaded" or something, like I've heard it's downloadable content for the Xbox 360, because at first, I thought it was just a game you can just go to the store and buy, but where and how exactly do I find the "download" at for this game?

I'm not exactly sure how they will be selling Lost and Damned to the Xbox Live public, but seeing how it's considered 'exclusive content' and "DLC" (Downloadable Content), they will probably market it in the Xbox Live Marketplace. You could just go there, pay the price of Microsoft points the DLC will be, and continue to download it. Like, how some games market their new map packs, such as Halo 3 and Gears of War.

Hook your 360 up to a broadband internet connection, sign up for Xbox Live, and you'll figure it out soon enough.

How would/will one go about getting L&D if he does not have Live?

Well, right now i would say you're pretty screwed if you don't have Live.

I doubt it will be released on disc.

They might release it on a special edition GTAIV disc like what was done with Oblivion and shivering isles. But I doubt they'll sell it alone, outside of XBL.

Well that just sucks. mad.gif

 

Would it perhaps be possible to download L&D from a computer to a flash drive or disc and then copy it to the 360 HD? Or would it be possible to take my HD to another 360 and copy that way?

Nice edit, asshole.

 

Here's what you originally wrote before you realized YOU didn't have YOUR fact straight:

 

 

They WILL release it on disk. Get your facts right before disappointing innocent users.

 

f*ck, morons correcting people with incorrect information is one of my biggest pet peeves. Now your stupidity is preserved for everyone to see.

Yes, I edited, because I noticed that I made a mistake. I made a mistake, and I admit it. And if you get aroused by 'revealing' this, or think it will somehow benefit to this discussion, then go ahead. If want to make a fool out of me because of that, then I'm just gonna sit here and take it like a man.

I heard you buy a Lost and Damned game box which has a code, then you use that code to download. This will probably make people who don't know about the exclusive DLC see it.

 

Anyway, I was hoping they bring it to a disc, but seeing as its the same city they may as well just make it downloadable only.

I don't think you can download it on PC and then copy it to the 360.

But you should be able to take your HDD to another 360 and download it, but i'm not sure if it will cause problems if you download the DLC using someone else's 360 and/or gamertag?

I think the safest way is probably if you take your whole 360 to someone with an internet connection, make a Live account (Xbox Live Silver is free) with your own gamertag, and then download the DLC.

That way the DLC is associated with your 360 and gamertag (wheter it actually matters or not, i don't know...but better safe then sorrow tounge2.gif ).

I think using your hard drive on a someone else's machine would be fine.

Since your gamertag is stored on the hard drive, you could just switch it with a friends HDD and sign into your own account. Then turn it into an XBL sliver account, and download L&D.

But Xbox 360 DRM goes by both gamertag AND console information.

 

If you take your hard drive to your friend's house, sign on under your gamertag and download the content you can take the hard drive back to your house and never have a problem playing under your gamertag. However, if you share your 360 with somebody they won't be able to play it because it will be associated with your friend's Xbox 360.

 

This goes for all DLC, not just "The Lost and Damned" and it's been a major problem for people getting their 360's replaced. Microsoft has been known to give points to RRoD victims with this problem since it's their fault but I doubt they'd be as sympathetic in this situation, especially since points aren't going to solve the problem in this case.

 

So yeah, if you're going to do it bring the whole console over to your friend's. That way the content is associated to your gamertag AND your console, not your gamertag and your friend's console.

You can't move around your hard drive to another Xbox then expect it to work on your Xbox.

 

People would have exploited this easily, this is why hackers can't pirate DLC.

 

But they should allow something in between so people could take it to their friends to purchase the DLC.
