It's irrational, it's paying to be raped up the ass and claiming to enjoy it.
People are emotionally addicted to some games. They KNOW the company assfucks them with a bloddy nail stick. They KNOW they are being constantly raped and treated like shit. Their reasoning is intact, but still ... they are not able to do anything about it. Because they are addicted. And more and more gaming companies exploit this addiction to the extreme.

Does anyone know how well it sold, on different platforms?
According to VGChartz, around 2.5 Mio on 360 and PS3. And i guess about 1 Mio. on the PC through Steam and other digital outlets. Which isn't THAT bad at all. But considering that EA isn't interested in a successor to Bulletstorm with roughly the same numbers, Beth is probably not very pleased.

Oh my stars and garters, people! Marketing speak in gaming should be a second language for you by now.
It sure is. But we will see. And we will pat you on the shoulder, saying Cutter was right as usual ... when Cyberpunk becomes the typical CoD for people, who dont like those complicated ArrrPeeGees, when Cyberpunk becomes a game like Dragon Age 2.

Only then ...

Personally, i expect nothing. I don't even wait. When its released i will play it and if its good i will buy it. Until then, i just ignore it.

So in other words they're dumbing it down for the masses for more sales.
There is a difference between "Explaining something better, to keep complexity high" and "Making everything dumber, so you dont have to explain that much."

News Comments > Max Payne 3 Sales Pale Versus L.A. Noire

Max Payne 2 was a commercial failure, the franchise is not popular enough to be a revenue top dog, unlike Hitman or Tomb Raider. Rockstar should be glad if MP3 makes enough money to cover development and marketing costs.

"Max Payne" would be a perfect example for a Kickstarter campaign. A low profile, dirty, gritty, not mass compatible re-imagination of the first game. A small team, low dev costs and a dedicated fan niche. This would be successful. Making a blown out AAA monster for a franchise which was nearly forgotten by the majority of customers? Stupid idea.

You mean crowdfunding. Crowdsourcing is entirely different and I'll say flat-out it will never work for anything artistic that needs coherency.

Heck, they might just re-activate the Neverwinter or Baldurs Gate franchise to make a good buck with mass appeal fantasy action games for the console market.

Uh... I don't think they can. BG was Published under Interplay, which had the D&D license, and NWN was published under Atari, who still has the D&D license. Since EA absorbed Bioware, that was all she wrote for any D&D IP made by Bioware.

As for the "Neverwinter MMO" by Cryptic / Perfect World... Cryptic was under Atari before being sold off to Perfect World... so apparently the license for that game was part of the deal.
Ahh, you're right. Then Bioware is DOOOOOOOMED!! *muhahahahaha* *cape swinging* *fist shaking*

So predictable, yet so old and tired.
Yepp. There is a reason that crowdsourcing for games is establishing itself as a viable alternative. There are a lot of people the industry doesn't cater anymore, because their tastes and preferences don't fit in the mass market or isn't part of the annual "THE NEXT BIG SHIT" hype.

Let the traditional gaming industry prosper or burn. Let the hypes come and go. I dont care anymore. Now i have to opportunity to directly finance the games i want to play. I am content and at peace.

I'd personally prefer it if they stripped the MMO shit out, repackaged it as a singleplayer game with co-op and sold mini expansions.
There is the possibility that EA closes Bioware, making an EA Edmonton with the remaining staff and just do Dragon Ages, Mass Effect-Prequels and KOTORs till the end of time. Heck, they might just re-activate the Neverwinter or Baldurs Gate franchise to make a good buck with mass appeal fantasy action games for the console market.

It's free of risk, people will buy that. Even a Dragon Age 2 wasn't a commercial flop, it made its fair share of money.

At what point did this become "cool"? Or even tolerable?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You%27re_Getting_Old

Its not about those specific things, its about how we percieve them. When i was at school, we played games on the C64 like "Beachhead" (where you could maul some enemies with the tracks of your tank). HILARIOUS! Or the infamous "KZ Manager", a simple Wi-Sim, but not with zoo animals but with jews and poison chambers. HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!

When you get older, you mature (sometimes) mentally. Things, which were fun and entertaining in your youth, are now nothing more than crap. Boring crap, horrible crap, disgusting crap. The society hasn't changed much, you changed. A lot!

I just wish the AAA industry could understand that.
As long as the majors sell games for immature jerks like hotcakes ... never gonna happen. The "AAA industry" does the equivalent of a Transformer movie. Expensive, polished to the extreme. And made for people, who give a damn about subtext, subtlety and maturity. Who just want "SPLOSIONS!!" and tits.

First thing every Tomb Raider game gets after release? A nude mod. How many young boys and adults tried desperately to activate the infamous "nude cheat" for TR1? AAA games are made for those people.

I really don't understand what they're trying to do with this game, aside from making assloads of money. Maybe that's the only point to the whole thing?
Thats the whole thing of every game published. To make the devs and/or investors money. Which isn't a bad thing per se.

But there are different levels of making money. You can pursue a fair trade, where everyone profits or you are just greedy, fucking everyone left and right in the pursuit of making as much money as humanly possible. Guess, what strategy Blizzard is apparently following with Diablo 3 ...

Last time i heard that, it came from desperate Hellgate-London fans

On the other hand F2P games are also good for people who do not have much time to play.
Sure. But the company does not need people like you. It needs customers to make money. Which is only possible with people who spend money.

Morally corrupt business model.
It is. F2P is a scam. To be profitable, the game has to trick you, lure you into spending money. Its completely intransparent, how much money this game will cost you. This business model feeds on weak minded gamers. Yes, its morally corrupt.

And therefore fits to Crytek like a glove!
