South Park Season 11 DVD to include XBox goodies

by Brad Trechak, posted May 6th 2008 7:03PM

South Park Season 11It looks like some extra goodies are being included with the South Park Season 11 DVD set. Not only do you get great episodes such as "Cartman Sucks", "More Crap" and the immortal "Imaginationland" story arc (I pray the season DVD includes the full commentary of the "Imaginationland" one), but the DVD also includes a 3-song download for the XBox version of the video game Rock Band.

This marketing move makes sense on a couple of levels. First, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are big gamers so they probably got some cool stuff that other gamers only wish they had access to. They even confess their hobby on one of their DVD mini-commentaries. Second, the season includes the episode "Guitar Queer-o", which uses the predecessor game Guitar Hero as central to the plot.

Comedy Central has done video-game cross promotion with South Park before. After all, the Season 10 episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" centered around the World of Warcraft online mutli-player game and the DVD set included a 14-day free trial for that. I'm sure this new cross-promotion will be good for both brands.

I'm not sure why I can't reply to other people's comments.

My point is that the author of this blog entry made an assumption that it was gonna be for the Xbox.

The article that he used as his source which was referenced at the bottom of his article (http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/2008/05/06/south-park-dvd-includes-mystery-rock-band-dlc/) said that it is not known which consoles it will be released for.

I quoted it before and I will quote it again. "Details on the included downloadable content are unknown, including what songs are included and which consoles the DLC is for. " That is pretty clear that it is NOT known that it will be for the Xbox.

All of this is moot anyways since they will not be any rock band tracks on there after all.

It does not say it is for the Xbox. Can you not read?

And I quote, "Details on the included downloadable content are unknown, including what songs are included and which consoles the DLC is for."

I'm guessing the South Park theme, possibly.

Just so you know, it doesn't say which console it will be for. It could be PS3, Xbox 360, or both. It better not only be for the Xbox 360.

How about "America, F**k Yeah!" for Rock Band?

Amazing!!! Second half of the season was kinda disappointing though.
