Last week Amazon announced their launch of their new game download service with games starting at only $9.99 which is an extremely good deal, unfortunately the game publishers certainly did not agree.
Recession apparently doesn't hit the gaming market as hard as any other. Also considering the fact that games provide a good amount of entertainment for the price. MMOs, online shooters and rts especially.
and still make a profit when someone else owns the game, then at least $10 of the 19.99 sale of the game is pure profit. What a rip off!!!!!!!
Yeah, all these are practically tiny little games made by a 2-3 man show. I think gamers should boycott the publishers and let the market decide if the games are worth more than $10.
ROFL the games they offer to download suck balls.
they should drop the price of those games to $1.99. LOL
Agreed. Publishers need to take their head out their ass. Jewel Quest is not worth $20.
Jewel Quest worth $19.99? My ass.
The publishers. As if Amazon cares..pull the game from the catalog if you have a problem with it. $20 for jewel quest in this economy? GTFO of my
This seems odd to me. All of these games have been available for a long time on BigFishGames for as little as $6.99 if you are a game club member. And Bejeweled (or Jewel Quest.. whatever it is) isn't even worth that much.
I would never pay for any of those games. The only people who buy those games are "softcore" gamers, i.e. soccer moms, little kids, and dumbasses. I wouldn't spend a penny on any of those crappy games. give 'em away for free and I would still turn my head, what a crappy article.
hey if my game was selling for $20 and people were still buying it. I would be pissed to cause amazon is cutting my profit in half without even asking me. To hell with that... dont mess with my money! Seriously... talk about recession all u want but people still buy the stuff... and has the recession effected u yet personally? i mean seriously... if you still have a job your good. I cant stand people who are still working complaining about the recession. Start complaining when you lose your job.
Don't comment on something you know nothing about. Recession affects everything, not just people who lose their jobs because of it. Moron. If you're a little confused i can elaborate on my point a little further.
The only bad thing that will happen to you is you cannot retire. How horrible you have to work for a couple more years. Meanwhile enjoy the great money saving deals everywhere.
What will we do? How will we buy Bejeweled now? I propose we make Bejeweled a swear word on this site. Then mod me for this message.
