From Gameplayer... "Microsoft has created an added incentive to pre-order Lost Odyssey: if you don't pre-order, you don't get the full game."
this is not incentive. This is threatening already.
LOL...yes it is...sad but true
Agreed. That is a terrible way of doing business. I hope this isn't true because they are just oing to pi$$ off potential buyers.
Just don't fight it and preorder so we can help MS take over as the one and only console giant that it is quickly becoming! All hail Microsoft!
i don't know about you, but i only had xbox 1 last gen and when MS dropped us like a piece of sh*t it made me think twice to buy their product again.. and this news just makes me want to rush out and get that 360 /sarcasm
Oohh let me put the option 1. Upgrade to superior system 2. Continue to play only old games. 3. Stop playing games. LOL Zhuk is officially Microsoft Missionary. It's more than a salesman because everything Microsoft did is GOD like action.
here is a link: http://www.ebgames.com/prod... Final Fantasy 13 Will blow the water out of this game any day nuff said.
This is more like shooting yourself in the foot before you even get into the fight, even if this game were to have high scores, people would still avoid it knowing that if they didn't intend on getting it before, they'll never be able to play the full game. Idiots.
Dude, this is their fanbase and they know them well. They'll only say things they know will work on them. They're a different type of demographic cause that crap would not fly at all if used on the PS fanbase - AT ALL.
Zuhk - They screw you over and you thank them for it. This is incredible, who the hell at MS thought this was a good idea. Forcing people to preorder the game by threatening with withhold part of the story is not customer service. I wasn't even going to get this game, but this make me mad!
They do this because they know the blind xflops would buy anything. Just look at the attach ratio.
This being a Pro Sony site we all know the score. " two slivers of in-game content" A SLIVER is not the whole game. Flame bait at best, get a life.
If gaming becames a religion Zuhk will be the antichrist
wow, either preorder the game or just don't bother getting it, this really isn't a good move.
you get half the game!! jk lol
I don't understand the beweilderment. This isn't like it's the first time they've done something like this. I mean, it's their business module. I can't remember the exact game but they'd said if you don't purchase it's 1st installment then you can't DL certain things for the game. I mean, that's jsut how MS roll and their fanbase are fine with that so let them be.
I may not be an MS fan, but I do have an Xbox 360 and I should have to right to buy the game, in full, when I want! paying for optional extras is one thing, but cutting part of the story out is something else. if they did something like give an odd-on as an incentive then I'd see this thing differently, but I can't get over the stunt that they are pulling here.
im going to call bs on this one
a very, very slow month. Oh well.
Didn't mean to butt in on your post, but I have to say something! This is all just a way to try to boost sales for the game. This content will be available on XBL shortly afterwords. They are just using this to try to get more people to buy it on day one! You will still get a good game, but the content they are referring to is more like the GTA 4 DLC in my opinion! This won't bother alot of gamers, because they may never learn of this incident. It only affects us gamers with nothing to do but read BS information to form an opinion on something we have no control over! I preordered it 2 days ago, so I didn't know about this. But when it's time to pick it up, if I don't like what I see, or the reviews I read, I will just switch it over to something else! It's just a game... no need to treat it as much more than that! It's just entertainment to enjoy, until something new comes out!
heh, not exactly MS smartest move now is it?
we will see about that, the full game will definitely appear on torrent sites, so up yours MS! :p
So you get 2 pieces of exclusive content if you pre-order the game. How is this different from getting an extra map or car with your pre-order?
When DLC and extra content is available prior to release it suggests it was removed from the original game. Like when Ace Combat 6 had downloadable aircraft on the marketplace before the game was even releases (in Oz anyway) suggesting that they took it out of the final game.
Because the "EXTRA" maps and stuff you refer to are not a part of the original game, they are extra...grab a dictionary to figure that one out. The bad part is that once they game hits the market you can't pre-order it so if its true you can only get the full game now, buy it later on the shelf and you will never have the full game, unless you do the torrent suggestion I saw up there lol.
Just more FUD.
Law Suit (there will be a class action suit one day against Microsoft and certain publishers like EA, and Bandai Namco for not only monopolizing the market, but for deceiving the consumers of their products) F-U Microsoft once again I'm getting sick of "DLC,' 'Exclusive Content,' and 'Patches" Stop trying to coerce us into buying your product and stop trying to nickel and dime the customer into buying "downloadable" content that's already or was originally on the disc (Beautiful Katamari being an excellent example) Also, get rid of the "we'll fix it later" mentality *cough* Mass Effect Developers are abusing the whole patch concept like cops with tasers
This is a STUPID IDEA. Seriously. Saying something like this is just despicable! It is UNHEARD OF. In a Gamers eyes they will AVOID this game if they didn't pre-order it. Its bad enough that the game itself pretty much copied another game (See the other article pertaining to this game to get the hint of what game I am talking about.) in 2 aspects. 1 the combat, and 2. the story. They may happen in two different time frames but STILL. Microsoft... I am invigorated by this!
Blah... why?! Like... i'll gladly pre-order it, but why not put this stuff on XBL or something like Capcom did with Lost Planet CE's exclusive map. Does M$ realize that this isn't exactly making them money, maybe turning people off from the game.
smell a two worlds clone or a Blue Dragon. Ms, stick to FPS, it's what you're crowd buys. anything that has to do with shooting is good, but fantasy rpgs with swords really don't help out much now do they. I really wanted to check this game out but I'm not gonna do it anymore. I'm gonna go tell my freind to not pre order this junk and go over to my house when I buy haze on Ps3.
Wow, seriously lame if true. I hated how some in-game items like weapons and cars in other games were pre-order only for but this one goes beyond it. Hopefully there isn't much story on that dream chapter.
Looks like preorder bonuses to me, they'll more than likely be put up on Live for download anyway. It'll be really shady if that stuff is on the disc. If so then just wait for whatever is required to unlock it to be on GameFaqs if it's not some unique code.
I hope these release later anyway
