E3 might be all the rage for consumers, but investors are also keeping a close eye on everything that’s happening at the show. - PSLS
Well that's just dandy
$30 worth of horse armor... yay
Well you can say goodbye to a complete game, enjoy the cut content label as dlc.
EA and M$--a match made in hell (for gamers).
Shouldn't it be, €A?
I've got an idea for getting more money from customers: make better games that have content worth its price. People will buy those in droves.
EA: Making better games is too hard and requires more work. EA: Worst games with less work and dlc with microtransaction........PROFIT !!!! Then they wondering why they are down compared to the year before.
I don't care so long as they don't cut content from the original game like they did with Mass Effect 3. Other than that, that means some people will be paying more on average, since I think less than half of players consume DLC or MT. Unless they force that stuff into the experience, in which case I'll take my money somewhere else. guess I'm saying I agree with CG
Selling a consumer a complete experience at 60 dollars is fine. I look at bf3 and said that was a complete game. When you release dlc such as the endgame dlc, I have no problem with that. What is the problem is situations like capcom. Where the dlc is already on the disc but locked away. The game should come to consumer s ready. Point blank simple
They can aim, but I'm really good at dodging.
sooner or later I'm going to quit gaming. Microtrans my ass.
I'm pretty sure your going to get $0.00 from me.
there was an article before saying they wanted to clear their bad reputation. then they go and do this.
You never know, this could go two ways. They could be planning on giving us some impressive add ons, downloadable side stories/quest, and some nice DLC outfits that will be worth the buck. Or they could be dicks like Capcom and lock content like characters and story levels away on the disc and make you pay for them twice. I hope it's the first.
Most publishers make at least 30$ dlc from each consumer anyways
Not from me they don't.
There is the EA we all know and despise. I was already starting to think they were sick not trying to screw the consumer.
So that means at least 2 DLC packs, etc for upcoming games I guess.
this has me worried for mirror edge and especially battlefront 3, two games i only care for from them at the moment i may not end up getting or will just wait till its dirt cheap new for the ps4
well f*** i was thinking they want to fix there bad reputation now they can f*** off
Luckily EA, you have nothing that interests me anymore...
Yup they have pretty much destroyed every single company they have purchased.
So in short EA's games would be all start up Menu on the first then have to buy the access to it and pay to play the first part, then pay so on....
I fear what they may be plotting with Star Wars Battle Front 3 or what ever name they settle on. I don't want to have to pay to unlock classes and weapons in order to compete.
This is the trouble with gaming becoming so big. The more money they make, the more they want - sheer greed. It makes me sick really. I understand that it is a business for the guys at the top, but they forget that they are supposed to be making a product for a consumer that should be top quality, and be good value for money. EA and Activision are getting worse and worse as the years go on.
EA & M$ are evil companies that like to steal money from gamers. The only thing keeping them up is DICE & Halo.
DICE aren't keeping EA alive, there is plenty more to EA than just Battlefield. There is a reason they continue to make Mass Effect, Crysis, Dead Space, Need for Speed, Dragon Age, ALL of their sports games, Sims, and many other games. Because they all make money.
What a shock. I would be ok with this if it meant lowering the initial cost of games. But don't nickel and dime me for every last damn item that should have been included at ship date when you're expecting to receive sixty dollars for your new game.
That's why they ended online passes: fewer people available to buy dlc and microtrans.
