Pay-To-Play Coming to Lumines Live

The PSP has had something of a rocky first year, but one game that has managed to live longer than most is Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi's puzzle game Lumines. Now the series is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade, and it's bringing a load of new stuff with it.

Why is it that Sony system ports are pay to play? That is Bu11$h1t. FFOnline, Lumines, .......................What's next?

If they do play to play for versus that does kinda suck but this game is awesome either way id just play single player thats fine with me....oh and FFonline is pay-to-play on every system

why should i have to pay? what does it cost then to include vs mode? you pay to play WoW because they keep your char. paying to play other people(sometihing most arcade games let you do for free)?

They're making a big mistake by waisting their time developing the extra Versus content if they think anybody will pay to play. Xbox 360 owners have to pay a fee for XLIVE plus the fee to download the arcade game. Now them blood suckers want to charge another fee to play versus mode? You've got to be dry f**king me? Nobody will do it! I mean, Lumines is a good game, but it's not that good.

The best way way to teach them to stop doing the Pay To Play is to not buy them. After they start losing money from developing the game they will probably lose that greediness & realized they could have made more money by selling it. We will teach them that Money Talks & Bullsh*t walks.

....Lets examine this shall we? Lets say, they are going to charge 400 points for the single player version and 200 more points to access the versus mode. Do you think that if they "weren't going to charge for versus play" you would get the whole package for 400 points? Well, if you do, you're an idiot. Then there would be only on version and it would be 600 points!!! This way they are giving you options, they are recognizing that alot of people (probably the vast majority) play puzzle games by themselves - they don't need the versus. The whole point of puzzle games has historically been "you versus the puzzle" not "you versus another player" - Take for example one of the most popular "puzzle games" of all time, Solitaire - Sheesh, its right there in the name: "Solitary".

Oh, and by the way, he's not saying you pay each time you play versus or even a subscription. He's saying it will be a one time additional cost to by the multiplayer content.

Do the retards that write these articles know what pay to play is? I didn’t read it because I thought when they said pay to play I thought they meant , like WoW now I when I read it I see that’s not the case

Now what you say about the versus mode makes you look like an idiot how many live arcade games do you have to pay extra to get multi player? I can’t think of any. Why should this game be any different?

Next time before you call some one else an idiot take a look in the mirror first…

Ben 10 Omniverse 2 - One Good Game Doesn't Deserve Another

Ben 10 Omniverse 2 followed the commendable original title with a lacklustre cash-in. Such a shame for the kids.

I tossed 3 grenades at cops on the PS5 version and the game crashed. 😂

The set up to this is so dumb in/a forgettable, who gives a f moment. Nice focus on what’s really broken with this game.

This game is now almost as broken as the launch version.

I literally saw a blown up police car just "driving" (floating) down the street. What the heck is going on? The CDPR official site has a post about all the new bugs that is 11 pages long.

Stuttering. Crashes. Glitches like Jackie sticking a gun in his head. NPCs floating around with their arms oustretched.

Headless NPCs talking to you after they were killed.

Yeah, the PR stunt didn't work, liars.
