FINALLY: Scott Pilgrim DLC is Out and Properly Working!
Earlier today the DLC achievements were finally added to Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. You can now feel safe to purchase the DLC pack, which sells for 160MS Points ($2), if you were holding out. If you do ever find yourself having issues with DLC achievements in the future, the solution listed in the first UPDATE works every time for correcting conflicting gamerscore.
** END OF LAST UPDATE**
The title update for Scott Pilgrim has now been released allowing gamers to actually access the new content but there is still one minor problem. The achievements are still not showing on xbox.com. If you do manage to unlock any achievement for any game while the achievements aren’t showing on xbox.com, they will not count towards your total gamerscore when those achievements do finally appear on xbox.com.
If you do manage to unlock an achievement under these circumstances, I’ve got you covered. Once the achievements do finally appear on xbox.com (could be weeks), you will need to recover your gamertag. This should delete unlocked DLC achievements from your gamertag that were unlocked under these circumstances. Don’t worry, it will not delete any other achievements that were properly earned. Then you’ll need to fire up the game that was having the issues and re-earn the achievements.
It may be a pain having to unlock the harder achievements again, but this is the only way to get the gamerscore on your dashboard and the gamerscore on xbox.com to show the same number. And at the end of the day, the amount of gamerscore on xbox.com is the amount that matters. As a precaution, you should always check xbox.com before starting any DLC with achievements because this is a growing issue that happens frequently.
**END OF UPDATE**
Today the much anticipated Scott Pilgrim DLC finally released on the Xbox marketplace. The downside is that it currently doesn’t work. The 3 new achievements have yet to be added to Xbox.com meaning they will not add to your total gamerscore if unlocked. But unlocking them is currently impossible due to the actual content not being accessible.
The DLC is currently listed on the marketplace and able to be purchased for 160MS Points ($2). But after purchasing the content, no new game modes, songs or characters will be added to the game menus or options. It seems that a title update could potentially fix this issue, but as of right now, there is no title update available. When the issue is resolved, XBLA Fans will be sure to let you know. Hopefully this issue will quickly be resolved as most Scott Pilgrim fans have been patiently waiting for this DLC pack for months. For those who are unaware, here’s the official description of all that is to be included in the DLC when it does work properly:
