£50,000 DLC experiment ‘Curiosity’

Peter Molyneux’s upcoming game has DLC that costs £50,000. The former Microsoft and Lionhead man told New Scientist that it forms part of an experiment to explore the minds of social media users, he told New Scientist. (22 Cans, Android, Dev, iPhone, PS3, Xbox 360)

Every time I turn around this guy does or says something even dumber...

In this case I'm not so sure that he's being dumb, but actually trying to prove a point that no matter how much or what kind of DLC is released, people will buy it.

and he will get even more pissed off hackers targeting the game in retaliation

Who is willing to bet that when that final person breaks open the black cube to reveal its contents, it'll be a diamond chisel?

Peter Molyneux, screwing with your head because he damn well can! :D

this guy is a tit, end of he thinks he is clever or some kind of visionary like steve jobs or something and he is far from it.

I find it funny that you cited Steve Jobs as a Visionary.

There is a line between sanity and insanity..

Peter crossed into insanity.
What he calls a "psychological test" is really a silly ploy to trick one stupid child in the world to max their parents credit card..

Note the last statement, "would one individual buy it? or would gamers club in the money to "share its power" "

That is manipulation.

Sorry, Peter. But you're asking for trouble and lawsuits.

P.S, Peter, if the "contents" of the "cube" was so important, you can bet they'll be a video of it on Youtube and another saying you're mad.

I'm going to make another experiment. Completely ignore everything he's saying. Wanna rape gamers in the name of experimentation? No thanks, we got all we need with present dlc habits already.

Wouldn't it also depend on what the DLC was exactly? Say that the DLC in question had every game of every system that's ever been, including all releases for the next two generations of consoles over a 10-20 year period; would people be interested in buying it?

Probably not, but it's nice to think about.
