Hello Zenimax and fellow adventurers,
I'd just like to start off by saying me and my wife are huge fans of ESO. We bought 2 copies of the game for PC and one Imperial edition for XBox one. We've also managed to convince lots of our friends to buy this in our opinion, best MMO on the market as of this moment.
Due to life, he had to stop playing the game for few months and wanted to jump back in on Xbox One. To continue our adventure in Cyrodill, it's obvious we have to purchase all the DLC. It was a pleasant surprise seeing all the new content out there ready to be grabbed! Thankfully, just before purchasing new content my friend told me - DON'T DO IT, You'll have to buy it separately for every account on same Xbox! He purchased all the DLC's just to learn he'd have to buy it 3 times so two of his brothers using same Xbox can use it as well. That's rubbish! I really wanted to support ESO by buying every single DLC out there for years to come, but If I'm supposed to buy it all twice, it's out of the question.
Now I've read some PC players saying - "but on PC, it's normal! You have to buy DLC for every account as well!" Wel,l guess what ? This is Xbox One, not a PC! I've purchased few copies of PC version, I've played it, I switched to XBox One. If you're releasing a game on console, some standards have to be met. Devs need to make compromises. Every single game on Xbox allow to share DLC to every account that uses the same unit. Besides, wasn't special edition on Xbox priced at around 90 EURO while PC version can be bought for 20 EURO?? If PC players want "equality" then be ready to pay 4x more for the basic game.
I understand that Zenimax are a bit greedy. They've proven that with imperial edition, by blocking away imperials behind a paywall. It's ok...I went with it and bought the expensive copy. But hiding DLC in crown store is just too much. You're on a console market, YOU need to adjust to the market, not the other way around. IMe, my wife and group of my friends gave up on ESO until this issue is adressed. I know ZENIMAX couldn't care less about few players, but I can assure you we are not the only ones who stopped supporting ESO due to problem I've described.
So the question is. Are there even plans to put up just the big DLC expansions on marketplace so it can be shared on same Xbox? Is there hope for us to adventure in ESO once more or we can just start looking for another online game?
