It's a shame Joe wasn't able to catch the Capcom guy off guard (though he's probably used to these questions by now). He had the same generic answer for everything. :/
When you start making your own money and start paying to live off it (rent, groceries, gas, bills, etc) you'll soon realize why many people choose not to (or simply cannot) buy all their games brand new.
Yes, but the $1 million loss was only an assumption on Quantum Theory's behalf. They are assuming that everybody who bought second-hand, rented, or borrowed the game would have bought the game brand new if that was the only option. But not everybody can afford to do that (I should know. I live in Australia and the average brand new PS3 game can cost around $100-$120 here), when those gamers might not have even considered buying the game if their only option was to buy it brand new.
I can definitely see where this article is coming from. Like I said in an article from the other day....I was thinking about why women don't seem to be all that interested in video games (and why many of my female friends don't "get" why I like gaming), and I think that a lot of women probably don't realize just how social or story-oriented games have become nowadays. Hell, my own friends are still convinced games are only about shooting and aliens, and that I'm &quo...
If Bodycount's reviews are anything to go by, it's pretty awful.
"They still lost sales." But who's to say the people who bought/borrowed it second-hand would have bought the game brand new if that was the only option? For all the devs know, those gamers might not have even considered buying the game if their only option was to buy it brand new.
I see it as being similar to a scratched DVD disc. The movie on the disc might be amazing, but if you have to sit through multiple jumps, freezes and audio issues, it really puts a damper on your enjoyment.
Out of all the questionable things in video games to complain about, people are still talking about the "feminist whore" thing? I mean, I could understand the controversy if the game makers had called Purna a "feminist whore" in the actual game just because she's a woman, but they didn't. It was probably some random designer being a dick with the codes. I don't think it's quite as comparable to, for example, a female character existing for the sole purpose...
I don't know why, but my first thought was that this meant we could download it on either PSP or PS3. That's what I get for assuming :(
Am I the only one a little wary of KH3? I mean, I'm looking forward to it too. But at the same time, I hope its plot doesn't rely too heavily on the spinoff titles, because if it does, I'm going to be completely lost. Hell, I got confused while playing KH2 because I didn't played Chain of Memories first. :(
I'm more excited for FFvsXIII. Even though very little info has been released, I like what I've seen so far (especially the videos and screenshots we have seen). I'm just hoping it will live up to the hype. I don't know how much more Square-disappointment I can take.
Is anyone really surprised?
More games need to bring back unlockables, imo. There needs to be more "complete Story Mode to unlock new characters" And less "pay us more money, and we'll give you more characters"
But will be it 2x the quality of Tekken 6?
So because he complains and overreacts to things, he must be a woman? Hooray for sexism against your own gender?
I'm still waiting for a 'proper' DK64 sequel. Easily one of my favorite games from the N64.
A Pokemon Snap sequel would be amazing. With heaps more chapters and Pokemon to take photos of!
@forevercloud3000: I don't know...maybe I'm just really pessimistic towards Square. I mean, I HOPE they had a bunch of amazing ideas that are being implemented in FFXIII-2. Because it would be great to see what the game could have been if that is true. But I'm not holding my breath. This is the company that has come up with some pretty awful games this gen...hell, even last gen they made some pretty awful games. And they had no excuse for those ones (they couldn't really blame...
"At least Final Fantasy XIII-2 cant be any worse than FFX-2." I don't know...Have you played FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus? Square must have been high when they came up with some of that game's awful ideas. D:
@WhiteLightning: I wouldn't be surprised if Square had plans for FFXIII-2 all along. They would have come up with something for a sequel, even if it made no sense in context of the original game (*cough*just like FFX-2 and FFVII:DoC*cough*)
