Eurogamer reports that Microsoft is charging $7 for the downloadable Crash Course add-on, due this month, to the zombie-splattering Xbox 360 game Left 4 Dead. Crash Course will be free on the PC version of the game via Steam, but the Destructoid story cites a Eurogamer interview with Chet Faliszek of Valve, the game’s developer. He tells Eurogamer:
“We own our platform, Steam. Microsoft owns their platform. They wanted to make sure there’s an economy of value there.”
You go, Microsoft, with your bad “economy of value” selves.
