Blame technology, not Microsoft.
I had no problem downloading R&C:UYA this morning on the PS3. Or J&D:TPL this past Christmas. Aside from the jerky controls, I had no problem playing them.
In alphabetical order.
Sounds like something some naive leftist would say.
@ JackBNimble We're just paying whatever's the equivalent of $60 USD here. The late 2000's-early 2010's are not coming back for us.
If they stopped spending so much on advertising, how else are they gonna be able to reach millions of potential buyers? The industry isn't niche anymore. It has a much bigger audience to cater to, not just the (stereotypical) gamer. With the amount of resources and manpower needed to make today's AAA game alongside the extras, it's amazing that games are even $60 at all.
Games were overpriced back then to compensate for the smaller userbase.
Activision has been killing it in 2017.
Pick your poison. Nazi German or Soviet Russian.
They have an image and a bottom line to protect.
Like what? So far, the only headache I had with digital is the 2-5 hour downloading time plus the 20-minute installation time.
It's easy for EA to say that when it's been some 5.5 years since they last made/published an SP game that sold well.
But can you name the last Visceral-made game that sold well?
So you much rather have the government regulate the industry?
That's funny. I had no problem redownloading Prototype (PS3), a game I bought digitally only to delete it, because I found it too hard and unenjoyable.
Most of the games I bought since Christmas 2016 have been digital. The only problem I have is thinking the game finished downloading only to wait another 2 hours to download whatever additional content it came with.
The name thexboxhub.com says all that it needs be said. MS gamers mad, because they backed the wrong horse this generation.
Rest in peace.
And that's because of the large amounts of money, resources and manpower put into it.
Exactly. $60 is too low for companies to charge for a video game in this day and age, with all the perks and features the average modern AAA game offers to make up "the full experience."
