DICE: Questioning David Cage | IGN

Casey Lynch: ''As the sun set on the rusted haze of the Las Vegas skyline, the first day of DICE 2013 came to a close. All day long, leaders, pioneers and mavericks from the interactive entertainment industry took to the stage – then to the barstools – to discuss what’s next in video games.

We sat down with David Cage, CEO of Quantic Dream, to talk about the future of the business and more. Here’s what he told IGN.'' (Beyond: Two Souls, Casual games, Culture, David Cage, Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

- On rumors that next-gen consoles won’t play used games

'Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s more about explaining and about telling people who really love games that if they buy used games, there will be a day where there won’t be any new games at all.'

Boo hoo. You won't get to spend all day motion capturing your 'actors' instead of actually making a game. Well, that's really sad.

-On how much games cost

'Games are probably too expensive right now. I hope to see the price points decrease quickly on the next gen cycle. This is also a difficult situation because I see the game budgets get higher and higher because we’re trying to make better games, and the production value gets higher and higher. This is why they take more money to be made.'

More like you're trying to make games that aren't games. You want to make a game that is like a film, but don't have the expertise to do either. That's why it's so expensive, and also why the gaming industry is suffering in some areas, trying to be something you are not.

That's how I read it. Let me know how you read it. I will get disagreed with to high heaven, but that's how I feel on David Cage.

Is there a release date on Beyond yet?
Seems like a Halloween type game release to me.

You and me both brother. I cannot stand people wanting to push their agenda onto the rest of us. You like interactive movies, great for you, but don't try shove it down all our throats and complain the game industry needs to be more like you and make point and click games only.
You do you David Cage. I'll stick to my "childish" Rayman/Mario games and violent Bad Company 2

Well you guys went to pretty extreme lengths to bash the guy. He has no say in whether or not newer systems would block used games sales.
SAE  +   969d ago
You don't like what he made because it's not your type of games. It is a game because you controle it. It just focus on story more then gameplay. He is good at what he is making so i wouldn't bash that ^^ .

I hate cars and i don't see why people play them but i would never say GT5/Forza..etc sucks. They work on these games really hard so i respect them . I hope you do the same for heavy rain developers . It's not like they are doing something wrong..
