Bulletstorm Sequel Cancelled; PC Piracy Mentioned

In spite of EA saying the original "under-performed," a sequel to Bulletstorm was in the works at People Can Fly before being cancelled by parent company Epic Games reports GameSpot, who hear from Epic president Mike Capps on the topic. Mike indicates they have put the Polish developer on a different project they will "be announcing pretty soon," though there is no clue if this is the recently revealed PC game Epic is planning. "We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," he said. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon." He goes on to praise Bulletstorm and says he'd love to go back to the property, "but right now we don't have anything to talk about." Just to stir the pot a little, the story concludes with Capps' comment that sales of the PC version may have been harmed by piracy: "We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

I don't agree with over use of pesticides yet my food is often prepared from foods that have been sprayed or treated.

I don't agree with using antibiotics in every circumstance, but I still take them when the doctor prescribes them to me.

I don't like having to take steroids or inhaled medications for my asthma, but I still do.

I don't like the idea of polluting the environment, but I drive a car.

I don't like the idea of scrapping perfectly good used vehicles for a credit on a new vehicle through cash for clunkers, but it happened.

I don't like having our troops in an open ended war that began on lies, but we're still there. Despite many people not supporting it after the truth came out.

People do lots of things they'd like to have an alternative to, but lacking an alternative they are stuck with what's there. If you pass laws to reinforce the status quo you will never get change. If you never get change, you are stuck with what's offered.

Your point is reinforcing something that there is no alternative to, simply because you reinforce it by claiming that only a minority cares or considers them wrong. Lots of people care, they might care LESS about them than say having clean drinking water but they care. It doesn't mean they have the time to post on this board to disagree with you. But claiming they don't care is ignoring the evidence that people have put out there in their choice of not purchasing or complaining about SOPA/PIPA and other laws. Or when they complain about movie quality or rehashes of the same old stuff every other year.

You may choose to not believe they care, but that's not going to actually solve a problem and will only create more by creating a false stance. If you are unwilling to even broach the subject with your consumer base and instead force it upon them, you are not giving a chance for people to be heard or represented.

Your point is predicated on a falsehood.

But you are in the minority caring about such things, or even considering them wrong.

Repeating your same complaints doesn't change my point.
