The problem: as the cost of games development balloons higher, bumping up the retail price, consumers demand more value with each and every shiny disc they intend to purchase. The likes of Modern Warfare, Gears of War and Halo have set a precedent of games sporting fully-fledged (and fleshed out) multiplayer modes alongside their gripping single-player adventures. It's all one big Catch-22 situation. And you just try and get the money for all that from the suits holding the money briefcases."
