My guess is EA got greedy and figured they can make more money with Origin.
EA wants to control the way people play their games to monetize the whole gaming experience. They cannot do that with Steam.

Well this is going to give people who pirate another reason to rationalize their piracy.
No, this benefits only people who want to justify their actions. The "standard" downloader just downloads because he or she wants to.

Higher income will solve piracy exactly as much as clean tap water eradicated the business of selling bottled water with inferior quality....
The trick here is ... do not think that higher income will "solve" piracy. It doesnt make piracy go away. Higher income leads only to more potential customers. Make them an attractive offer and MORE people will buy your products because more people can afford to buy them.

It's not that they don't care, it's that they don't want to say anything that could possibly lead to a lawsuit.
How does "We are sorry, but we have to let go some folks. We thank them for their hard work and wish them all the best!" lead to a lawsuit?

This bullshit speak is targeted at the investors. Make them believe that everything is under control, that the company is on track and YES, WE ARE TOTALLY FINE!!!! DONT PULL YOUR INVESTMENT!!!!

SOPA is a complete clusterfuck. It seeks to give power to those that will abuse it and will have no effect upon piracy.
Yes, SOPA is a complete clusterfuck, but ... if you want to "fight" a problem, first make sure that IT IS a problem.

Is it the casual, non-commercial motivated content piracy?
Is it the usual commercial content piracy in countries with a low per capita income?

The first cannot be undone, you have to live with it. If you want to make money with digital goods, you better learn to let go after you release this content. The easy-to-copy nature of digital information cannot be separated from digital nature of digital information. If you dont like this, change your business model, sell physical objects like apples or fridges.

The latter ... easy solution. Raise the per capita income and these people will gladly start to buy more and more content from you, the official distributor. Or lower the prices.

What we got was a beautiful tech demo.
Which would be awesome in the days of Quake and Unreal, but nowadays texture sharpness and detail has evolved and increased tenfold. Rage looks sometimes like a fifteen year old game for the Diamond Monster 3D.

1. Re: SOPA Isnít the Solution, But Can We At Least Agree Thereís A Problem Jan 11, 2012, 09:50 Kajetan
 
No. Because there is no actual problem. Only a percieved problem.

"If they do nothing, they are essentially ceding a good portion of their sales to pirates who have no intention of ever paying them a dime."

There is no proof that DRM increases sales, there is no proof that the lack of DRM decreases sales. For DECADES, since the early days of tapes and video cassettes the fear of loosing sales is based on assumptions, not actual, proven facts.

Do we know for certain that Rage tanked sales-wise?
http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales-data/25458/rage/

Ten weeks after release, 1.15 mio. 360, 0.8 mio. PS3, 0.2 mio PC (only retail, no Steam and other digital numbers), perhaps 3 Mio. units all together?

Not a failure, but nothing to write home about for a multiplattform release either. I guess Beth was expecting MUCH more.

You are all forgetting one important thing, there are more people unemployed now and that sucks.
These people are not unemployed. They are given the chance to get more lucrative und fulfilling jobs, because at id Software they care SO MUCH for their employees that these people are set free that they can pursue higher goals.

We love you, we really do!!!

Simple solution. Do not buy it.
That's pretty much my solution nowadays.
Heh. Mine too
I used to buy CEs on a regular basis (i still adore this mighty and heavy black brick named "Warcraft 3 CE"), but lost interest after digital items became more and more the standard ingredient of a CE. An ingredient i can torrent for free a few days later after the release. How "special" is that shit?

I'm honestly getting tired of the fact that collector's editions for every game now always involve putting statues in the box. No matter how much I'd like the other stuff given in various games CEs, I just don't want the junk cluttering up my house.
Simple solution. Do not buy it.

I prefer this stuff over any of these useless digital "extra items", which are anything but special (a few days after the game release anyone can download them) and they cannot be owned (!), espcially when they are "collectors items" in an MMO, connected to an account.

There's an entire generation that cannot devise it's own humor and instead relies on pictures of cats, random gifs and howling "cheater".
You are getting old and bitter. May be it's a good idea for you to retire from the internet.

Judging by the buzzwords in that listing it's probably a little game for xbox live avatars that you can control with your hands and feet.

Which version should reviewers review? The shipping version or after some patches?
Sad thing is, even with hundreds of pachtes this game is still a cheap ripoff to lure the uninformed gamer into buying a "Flatout" racing game.

The point again is that this was a design problem that should be addressed as such.
It should, but it can't.

Blizzard has done this in the past in WoW (remember the guy who discovered a freaky but legit way to reach a closed area?), Bioware does it now, other devs have done it. These companies are not able to admit mistakes because their company culture thrives on blaming others for mistakes.
