Aliens Vs. Predator Console Patches Cancelled

Game over, man, game over! Sega revealed today that upcoming patches for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for Aliens vs. Predator have been tossed out.

"I've just received a mail this AM regarding patches for the console versions of AVP and I regret to inform everyone that these have sadly been scrapped," community manager Clumsyorchid said on the company's forums. "I had previously made a claim that these were coming and at the time, this was very much on the table. For the console community, I apologize, as I know there are many features and updates that you'd like to see."

"I'll keep fighting internally for this to happen, but until I hear otherwise, there will not be a console patch for either Xbox or PS3."

This is a bit surprising as the game has received plenty of post-release support. Two map packs have been released for the game since its early 2010 launch. Why provide DLC and not patches? I'm sure it's a complete coincidence that DLC earns money and patches don't.
