Typical Nintendo marketing ploy to keep the prices high, thought they might have grown out of this.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that questions this.

It baffles me that Activision spend more on marketing than developing the games that need no marketing at all.

They could easily slash the marketing budget, introduce dedicated servers and still guarantee more sales.

Just my opinion, but I will address all three points.

1. Mobile market domination......3DS! nothing more needs to be said.

2. High cost, high spec. I'm sorry, but when the Vita price and specs were announced it was praised by the majority of gamers and media outlets. What became apparent to me shortly after release of the device was that the media undertook a witch hunt to downplay the previously accepted price and abilities to the point that the Vita had...

Yes, I do believe it deserved to be criticised. There's no hiding from the popular belief that the launch game was woefully short of what we were led to believe the game to be, and the story was so disjointed that it had to have been chopped up.

But, as others have said, it must have done something right for millions of gamers to have sunk many hours into it. It has to be said though that free to play mobile games can and have achieved the same level of addiction with mor...

Cliffy B had been a resident of his own backside in recent years and he's also a supporter of fleecing the customer so I suppose we'll have to wait and see.

Sorry Cliffy, I don't see you doing spectacularly well on Pc so I think it's you who should be hitting up Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.

Has to be said I enjoyed it too, and I'll be giving this one a try....albeit with low expectations.

It's a shame because Hitman is perfect movie material.

Get off your high horse there chief, the disdain for Cliffy has very little to do with Xbox or Playstation. If you've been around games as long as some of your comment history suggest and not since June this year as your profile suggests then you would know he is a compulsive defender of the corporate shill and customer fleecing.

Surely that says more about Titanfall than PC?

Because it's running the map on dedicated servers in multiplayer and running it locally on single player.

I suspect that "cloud compute" (dedicated servers) will likely be utilized in this manner due to there cost to run. Multiple players on one server or everybody needing one server each, the latter required for full destruction in single player.

@I-Hate-usernames
I would happily agree with your reasoning completely, except with Gta of course. For sheer content alone, nevermind everything else it does beyond your average mainstream game it deserves the sales it has received. We'll have to agree to disagree.

Care to furnish us with an example?

We accept this now in any form or by any excuse and it becomes the norm, then what?...Publishers are always looking for more ways to fleece the consumer, so we have to stop this now.

Fine, it helps fund free maps, but my issue with unlockables being available for cash is that the said unlockables are usually made more irritating gain than normal to incentivize the player to pay...something that will get worse if not stopped.

The Championship reason I don'...

Well said, It's getting increasingly unbearable contstantly reading misandrist opinions thinly disguised as equality championing.
