Your point about money up front business model carries an expectation that a products not faulty. Define "faulty." Bug free? Then stop buying software. "Manageable bugs?" That's a fair expectation. Did you ever see a movie you didn't like? Is that "faulty" entertainment? Can you get your money back? No, you can't.

You, sir, need to have realistic expectations, or expect to see gaming go away.

Hollywood is another of those corporate scam artists who have lost sight of who the customer really is(even more so than the gaming industry)and no, I rarely go to the cinema at all and I don't buy dvd's or blu-ray's.

Gaming will NOT go away. Hyperbole there.

However I would not bat one eyelid if 90% of current publishers went bust because people stopped buying their bullshit. EA, Ubisoft and even Zenimax I'd like to see go bust so the message would go out that WE are the customers and if you piss on us then you lose.
I do not however hold any hope that this will happen as stupid kids will still wet themselves like over excited puppies for Modern Warfare 2,3,4,.....50,000.
Let's take Zenimax,Bethesda & Skyrim as an example......
Skyrim through Steam in Australia is STILL $90 USD!!!
Whereas it is only $60 USD if you live in the USA.
The AUD is ahead of the USD in value. There is NO shipping costs to speak of so, this is a blatant and deliberate RIP-OFF!!
I have NO sympathy for any company who does this and dies.
Let's hear how you justify that sort of shit Mr.Devinoch.
This is only one example, you need to take your head out of your arse and take off your rose colored glasses.
