South Park Creators Wouldn't Cut Content For The Sake Of DLC
Gamers really don't like the idea of developers removing original content and selling it later as downloadable content.
Which isn't to say that we have any idea which extra content was supposed to be "original." But when the idea was proposed to "South Park" co-creator Trey Parker, he answered simply:
During a Comic-Con panel, as attended by Polygon, Parker and Matt Stone spoke about the size of the script for South Park: The Stick of Truth. It went as high as 850 pages, which was simply too large. So they were asked to "cut it down, cut it down, cut it down," and use the cut content as DLC. This drew jeers from the panel audience and Parker responded appropriately-
"And I agree…f**k that."
So, we just won't get the content, although Parker added that it would be seen somehow, perhaps as part of an upcoming TV episode. Interestingly enough, Parker and Stone told us that their inspirations for The Stick of Truth included a wide variety of games, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Paper Mario and even classics like Earthbound and The Legend of Zelda. Some seriously diverse inspiration there!
The anticipated South Park game will be out later this year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
