Just like there are people that don't realise that Dark Souls and especially Dark Souls 2 are, compared to King's Field, casual games designed to appeal to the masses, rather than the pure vision of the original games. #1.2

The manufacturer is meant to support the third parties, though. So, you know, they don't go elsewhere. #6.1

It's always so easy to tell when someone hasn't read beyond the headline. #1.2

I wonder how many major development studios this author has run, to understand how business at major development studios works, how pricing works, and so on and so forth?

I suspect none. In fact, I would bet my house on the answer being "none"

Anyone want to bet against me? Didn't think so. #2

"It *devalues* video games to call them something as *simple* as art. They are *much much more* than that."

Your words, not mine. You're the one prescribing a value to the word "art," and then assuming some objective truth that your preferences and tastes alone are what determines what is "mere" art and what is something so special to be "more than art."

It's a childish argument born... #1.1.3

Art isn't a quality, therefore you can't have something that is "more than" art. It's either art, or not art. The quality is in determining whether it's good art, or bad art.

What you're trying to do is say an apple is "more than a fruit" because you happen to really like apples. Except that an apple is a fruit. It might be the best fruit in the world, but "fruit" itself is not a quality. It's a description.

I loved the Xbox game and its sequel with a passion. Those were difficult, challenging strategy/ Warriors-style action hybrids, with charmingly terrible localisation.

I don't know about this game. I just want another Kingdoms Under Fire game. As those earlier games were. #7

Not if you consider games to be a form of art.

Because the censorship of art is something to be VERY concerned about. At a community, academic, moral and political level. #4.1

Because XCOM is a cheap, simplistic game that is nothing more than an experience, right?

And because 2K Games released XCOM on mobile they are now just another dirty mobile developer that doesn't make real games, right? #13.1

Stupid people don't read articles before commenting on them. #9.2

Sony and Microsoft both have mobile businesses. Given that both produce their own line of phones (and games for those phones) there IS a reason not to support iOS for them; direct competition.

Nintendo doesn't have a phone business, ergo it's not a reason. #5.1

And I can guarantee 100% you didn't read the article before making that comment.

The idea that there can't be buttons for iOS games is completely, factually incorrect. #1.1

Not that Resogun is a bad game - it's shedloads of fun - but you clearly didn't go into Contrast with the right frame of mind. Nor did you understand what it's about.

It's an art game. Deal with it as such and don't focus on superficial stuff like minor bugs. #4.1

So, according to you, the quality of a game is in part based on its price? You would actually have more fun playing the game if it was cheaper?

What a load of nonsense. The amount of fun you have with a game has nothing to do with its price. Whether you buy it or not is in part dependent on price, of course, but not whether it's an enjoyable game or not. #1.1.2

As far as I can tell Straight Right doesn't release its financial results - it's not a public company.

So how do you come to the conclusion that it's "making a fortune?" Do you work there? Do you have inside access?

Or are you just making an assumption? #2.1

That has absolutely nothing to do with anything that was written here.

Just thought you might want to know. #2.2

How to be sure someone didn't even read the article before throwing a tantrum:

Author write article about Nintendo needing change in its approach to business.

Fanboy writes whiny comment pointing out that Nintendo made some changes in its hardware for the new gen.

Dear fanboy: business change isn't the same thing as releasing a new console. lol. Just lol. #5.1

My suggestion to you is to do some research into commoditisation and discounting, and the economic criticisms of both.

It'll help balance your next opinion piece. #1.2.1

Oh, well then. Since you have a degree in business management, I'm even more surprised that you would write this piece, and I would have thought you would have a basic understanding of the dangers of commoditisation in luxury goods categories. #1.1.1
