    Hey Console players, would you pay for a DLC update? I sure would.

    I keep hearing about all the updates and mods for the PC version of 7 days to die, and I know consoles will always be way behind.
    I suppose it'll be up to whomever owns the rights to this game, but I have to wonder, would anybody else be willing to purchase a DLC update?
    I would.

    They've actually been very generous in providing all of the PC updates for console. The reason we haven't seen them in a while is because of the situation with Telltale. TFP would love to be going strong if they had the option.

    no, DLC wont fix the overwriting of my game saves.

    if they released an actual working game for the next, next generation consoles I might consider buying that but would be very wary of another broken game being released as a finished product. sadly this stigma will always be associated with TFP.

    That boat came and gone. They bvb hadvtheir chances to make more money. Their baby is the pc. The only thing they care about.

    One thing I would pay for though is for TFP to keep their unfinished alpha games on pc where they belong.

    Who wants unfinished games,that are marketed as complete. Not me

    They got my money on. This one. Never again. Rather flush $30 down the toilet then give to TFP and help support them to make more. Broken games

    I haven't suggested "they" haven't been generous with the updates. I realize there have been a number of fixes for console, and I'm generally very pleased with this.
    My question was and is, would you pay for an updated and perhaps expanded version?

    Of course the PC is their baby. That was the goal all along. They had support for kickstarter to start PC. So not sure what the problem is? They sold the rights to TT for console when TT seen a good enough game to call it a finished game. Like I said before you seen the PC version and assumed console was the same. That is like me seeing minecraft java edition and assuming console version was the same and get made that it wasn't. But guess it is someone else's fault you didn't look into something before buying. But they sold the rights so they didn't handle console the company that went bankrupt that bought the console rights handled it. Now TFP are trying to work out the legal stuff to be able to continue console the best it can be. Right now nobody not one soul can touch the console version due to legal issues. TFP could and they still might who knows but they could decide ok console is what it is. But last they said they still working on things so they haven't as of yet given up.

    Seems like someone don't even know what is actually goin on because they don't do research before talking. But hey like I said on the last post you made we all need a good laugh every now and then. Lol

    So, if a paid DLC came out, perhaps fixing some of the known issues, you wouldn't buy it?

    So, the question remains, would you pay for a DLC update to the console version?

    As for me, this is "yes" without hesitation.
    I bought previous toons DLC skins even as I didn't liked them, so developers could eat.

    [Cynical point of view]
    My two cents "super money maker" proposal : a paying DLC with full toon nudity (sex == sales) rated "AO" so the base game can stay "Mature" rated.
    Of course with third person view enabled even in single play like in Conan Exiles.
    Don't be fooled, the ones who will be crying "scandal" will be the first ones to buy the DLC.
    On the other hand, it wouldn't be off-lore in this game as in the introduction movie the man starts naked and also your toon in (censored for no AO rating) the start of a new game.

    Depends on exactly how you are saying it. As of now why would I? A paid DLC isn't going to happen no faster then a free DLC. Updates are not happening right now regardless while the legal stuff is goin on.

    I don't see anyone making a paid DLC for the game. If they needed money sure I would pay for it. I have bought several console copies and several PC copies for friends to play and also some stream to do giveaways. So yeah if they wanted money I help more i have no issue with that right now. But like I said charging for DLC or not isn't the reason console isn't getting updated right now. I just personally don't see then charging. I could be wrong but don't think they are hurting for money. Not sure how much profit they got from console sales but they have sold loads of PC copies.

    no, 3 years+ later, I shouldn't have to pay for them to fix a game that was broken on launch.

    we buy multiple copies for multiple platforms and I have no problem buying DLC. more often than not we order the premium /season pass versions of games. I just dont see myself doing that for the only game I own that has overwritten my game saves for 3 years running with no fix / work around.

    That's not the first thing I would have thought of, but neat idea.

    The current console version is locked in limbo because of legal mumbo-jumbo that I'm sure I don't understand.
    The fact that all of the official replies specific to console are basically "no comment" leads me to believe that the creators of the game are not allowed to say anything until the legal snafu is sorted out.
    I'm wondering if having a large segment of the console community clamouring for a paid update would help break the deadlock.

    It won’t break the deadlock. As some have said I don’t think TFP want to play in the console arena.

    Sorry don’t believe the legal mumble-jumbo excuse. Maybe if they mentioned anything of what kind of legal action is happening then maybe, but total silence to me means nothing legal is going on at this point. TFP said they terminated the rights they sold to TTG. That agreement assuming both sides were smart covered this type of incident.

    The Console code is owned by someone. TTG wouldn’t have been allowed to sell the asset in the auction by Sherwood Partners if someone had a legal case on it.

    My best guess and we are all guessing at this point is TFP don’t want to mess with the costs of moving the console version forward. Plus it is doubtful that console could be updated to alpha 18 do to hardware limits. So TFP would be required to support two different versions of the game on different systems. Unless TFP have a money tree growing somewhere the costs far out weight the rewards for a free or at this point even paid DLC. Best guess is the next generation of console will get a new 7 days to die release and maybe even be on par with PC.

    You can put me in the update is not going to happen. 8-2-2019 mark it down. If we are lucky TFP will say something at some point, but it is possible they might pull a TTG and just not say anything at all. Watching the video about alpha 18 for the PC and seeing how TFP body language, voices, and even talking 6 seconds about console seemed awkward. Thank goodness for the well buy a PC copy to break the tension. I own both and sorry but gameplay I prefer the console solo mode. Graphics, and pvp is a no brained PC.

    I hope I am wrong and people re-post my post when the update happens. I will gladly eat crow and apologize for being wrong and an idiot. Unfortunately I think I am right, and we are just waiting for TFP to come out and say it.
