Tecmo to update DOA3

US fans get Japanese perks

Source - ConsoleWire

We had expected to see updates (read: patches) for Xbox games in one form or another, but Tecmo's announcement concerning Dead or Alive 3 updates is peculiar. Tecmo plans to add all sorts of extras to the Japanese version of the game, including additional costumes for existing characters and perhaps even additional fighting stages, and it wants to offer these to US gamers as well. The thing is, instead of offering them as a download to be stored on the Xbox hard disk, Tecmo is planning to release them in the form of an add-on disk. Whether this is in addition to an Internet download is unknown, but it seems odd because surely all an add-on disk would do is foist them onto the hard disk anyway. We shall see.
