No, Microsoft won't allow them to give away the free content they want, nor will they allow them to update/patch the games as much as they want. You can only give away certain amounts of content on XBL, and if you want to do more after meeting the "free quota", the developers have to pay out of pocket for each update/patch/free content. They're also are constrained to a time window, which is why some games like Left 4 Dead 2 would have an important patch on PC day 1, but it takes around a month to arrive on Xbox360. Valve is a very supportive of their games, and services like XBL do not allow them to fully support their releases. PC = Free DLC, Xbox360 = Payed DLC, in Valve's case.

How many free updates could they give? I mean maybe instead of a patch or install every 5 days they could make 1 large one every few months or so.

About that paid DLC...

There is a difference between Super Meat Boy, and games like TF2 & L4D. Super Meat Boy has a level editor in it, and I'm pretty sure these free levels are just something similar to TXT files being read from the server and the game rebuilding it. If they want to add new audio or other aspects, they can release it in their REAL DLC packs on XBL. Its a nice system they have, but other developers can't utilize this, especially games like L4D.

Well I think most console owners should buy Portal 2 on PS3 now because of this (if they do not have a gaming PC). As for me I just got Left 4 Dead. Wink, but my Xbox is fucking up on me... multiple times.
