Well, you can't expect people to pay a monthly fee for a GTA game

They spent $50 million, one of the highest game budgets (#7, http://www.digitalbattle.co... ), on APB.

They should have known better than to spend all that on something that wasn't a sure thing.

Rest in Peace, RealTime.
I was REALLY hoping you'd make Crackdown 3.

they actually could charge for it , if it was any good . It's pretty and got cutomisations , but the gameplay is meh and repetitive ...
Might as well just have done Home or the 360 avatars

Their clothing is ok, customs on that is fine. Their hair tho, there's only 30 or something and many aren't too great.

I won't even go into the cheaters that ruin the game cause of lack of anti cheat. I wasted my money on this crap, but I still have my basic free hours that came with the game, I'm sure many more would be crapin themselves for having to pay for more hours.

They would of made it Free-2-Play upon purchase, then have it so if u want you can pay for extra stuff. Forcing people to pay for more hours made many steer away from this.

but I'm not, but I'm still piss on the fact that a developer studio flop big time.

terrible choices will ruin the studio

How could they not see it coming? They refused to listen to advice from the very beginning of beta stressing the need for basics like decent driving, shooting and being actually able to PLAY the game as a crim without cops being dispatched on you every other minute.
