2. Re: STEAM May 30, 2008, 21:03 Trashy
 
Well they never seem to link real sales figures from steam, This article been thrown around a lot.

I tend to believe it, no one I know wants the Console version of Orange box and the guy at my local Gamestop says he only sold a half dozen copies of the it for the 360 and hasn't seen anyone get the PS3 version.. Not that I live in the biggest community.


http://www.tomsgames.com/us/2008/02/21/gdc_will_steam_add_movies_music/

Doug Lombari: We were very happy with both the Xbox 360 and PS3 sales. I think the Xbox 360 version did just over a million, while the PS3 [released later in December] version did a few hundred thousand copies. So I think when all is said and done, The Orange Box will have sold about 1.5 million copies on the console, which is great. But the game's PC sales were much stronger.

Rob Wright: How much stronger, exactly?

Doug Lombari: I'd say significantly stronger, at least a two-digit percentage increase over the console sales. And that includes Steam sales, retail sales, and now individual sales of Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Half-Life 2: Episode 2. So when you take the PC numbers for The Orange Box a la carte, they're significantly higher.

Regarding your claim of Steam's ability to prevent unauthorized use and distribution, actually Steam is less effective than other DRM systems at that because it is uniform. Since Steam's DRM is built into its client software and is uniform for all games on Steam, simply cracking the client itself cracks all of the games so they can be played without authenticating. So, the pirates actually love Steam because it provides virtually a one-stop shop for all of their free gaming needs.

Sure if we're talking about hardcore crackers and such, however Steam effectively shuts the general PC user from pirating the game easily. Forcing them to look in the more shady areas of the internet or paying for the game through an easy interface. most people choose the latter.

You must not read much then because his post is the usual bullshit smear seen from the RIAA and MPAA lobbies and their apologists.


LOL and your just as guilty when it comes to reading, since your bold statement just plays into my point exactly.

The only reason why people are bitter over anything relating to Steam is that it actually forces people to actually buy the games.

When you guys mention, privacy issues or DRM it's just a cover / easy excuse for what really bugs you and that is you can't steal games easily.

I would complain about steam if I had to buy the game each time I got a new computer or re-installed the OS, but seeing how I can re-install the game over and over and even on different computers the point is moot. This save feature will be welcomed in my opinion.

It seems that Asus has few a Motherboards with this out already... luckly it can be disabled in the BIOS. I just hope game developers are smart enough to know this is a bad idea that will make them loose business.

Ah they fixed my favorite bug, liked seeing my friend killing low level characters when logging out. the totems would go hostile even on allies after logging out.. good for a laugh.

You think ad hominem is a vague Latin reference? Go to school, child.

I'm no child and I've been through college and been in the work force for well over a decade now. I must say your response, dare I say is kind of Childish.

Also by the way it is a vague reference, I'm pretty sure most people hit up Wikipedia like I did.

So basically you have no real counter to his argument, and you have to resort to ad hominem attacks and appeals to popularity.

And your resorting to vague Latin references against my argument, What's your point? I did write more than what you quoted. Plus I had no issue with the rest of his argument except for what I put in quotes.

Also what I read of ad hominem doesn't your response to my message seem to fit along these lines as well? I'm not a Latin major so I'm curious.

Swearing is for the ignorant or depraved.

You lived a truly sheltered life if you truly believe that, You said that statement just to project yourself higher than everyone else.

Swear words are only as depraved as society makes them out to be, look at what swear words used to make our grandparents cringe 10-20 years ago, now a days they're use by the mass media, even by news anchors. I don't swear much I see no need to, but that statement is just off base.

Gabe and Tycho know that if they want to be fairly popular they need to be kind of edgy and compared to VGCats and ctrlaltdelete, they're fairly tame.

I'm pretty sure Troika would of bombed even if they released Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines when they wanted too. The game play wasn't that good and it's graphics where poor even with the source engine and was rated poorly by many critics..

Not saying Valve didn't do something wrong.. just saying Troika had many things against them

Is DirectX 11 going to be Windows 7 exclusive, or they're going to allow Vista to use it?

My first computer I used at home was a Timex Sinclair. My first PC was a Tandy 1000HX with only 256k of Ram and an 8088 processor. Then upgraded to and an Amstrad640 laptop 640k 8086 that thing must of weighted 25 pounds easily.. After Many years behind the times,I built an AMD 386sx 40mhz system with 4 megs of Ram, 260meg hard drive, SoundBlaster 2.0 and a 2x CD-ROM.

I have an original IBM PC case, I stuck a AMD K6-3 system in it, It Barely fit and had replace the Innards of the Power supply to a modern one. I still use it as a Windows 98 machine, to run DOS games and such.

It's most likely a countdown for a book release, you know those things made from sheets of flattened tree pulp and letters marked on it.
