Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford fights fires over lack of Bulletstorm upgrade discount

During The Game Awards, Gearbox announced it was behind the Bulletstorm remaster. Bulletstorm is a superb first-person shooter, as our Christian Donlan insists, so news of the Full Clip Edition was welcome. But shortly after the reveal, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford battled calls on Twitter for an upgrade discount programme that - it seems - is not going to happen.

Who in his right mind will pay 60$ for Bulletstorm Remaster?

Seriously Gearbox, get your head out of your @ss. This should have been 20$ max.

georeo2778d ago

I was like "hell yeah I'll get it for 20 maybe even 30". Then I saw 60 Bone's lol. The question is... Does it even look better?

DarkOcelet2778d ago

Its your average remaster,1080/60fps. Not much of a difference really.

DemonChicken2778d ago

Compare it to something like crash which is a full remake and for $40!

Like Bethesda, maybe Gearbox didn't get the memo?

I wouldn't and I got it for $60 the first time around. $40 max for me because I do really want this.

DarkOcelet2778d ago (Edited 2778d ago )

I enjoyed Bulletstorm but this price tag is just pure greed.

Relientk772778d ago

I hope it sells like a lead balloon.

Mediocre game for $60, yeah that's not happening

Lol, Bethesda had the audacity to charge $60 for a 5 year old game as well, but at least they offered a free upgrade. Gearbox is complete garbage.

Pitchford should have been canned after the Aliens colonial Marines fiasco!!!

This guy is a dirt bag!

CorndogBurglar2778d ago

I diet bag? Interesting.

I assume that means he's a raging piece of crap? Because that would be accurate.

"If that is a deal breaker for you, you should skip it." - Randy Pitchford

Randy! What are you doing? Don't pull a Microsoft circa 2013 here and tell people to just deal with it, you're going to end up ruining this franchise's chances of being recognized once again. You're supposed to be selling the damn game!

CorndogBurglar2778d ago (Edited 2778d ago )

Yeah man. What kind of business man says don't buy their product? You NEVER say that. Instead you come up with reasons why people SHOULD pay the $60.

This guy is ridiculous.

OMGitzThatGuy2778d ago

What he said was correct though. If you're buying the game and want a discount then that means you already have it and you probably should just skip this. He can't win this, if he would have given reasons to buy it then people would say that it is normal PR responses.

Onness2777d ago

Like, I totally get OMGGitzThatGuy's point, Randy's just being straight up about the Full Clip Edition, and how owners of the original Bulletstorm got the experience back then, but that's the problem. This Remaster seems so pointless, considering the only real improvements or significant additions are pre-order bonuses and the typical technical upgrades we come to expect this generation. There's nothing to offer unless you take the risk and buy it before info is out for Duke Nukem. I don't know about you, but I'm not pre-ordering a game that has the guy who lead the whole Aliens: Colonial Marines controversy, let alone for close to $60. If it's meant for people who haven't played the original, then it wouldn't be $60. I feel like they should've sold it as a budget title to grow the franchise, not milk it.

Name Last Name2778d ago

Did this guy even study anything about business?
