yea I've heard this all before
only it was 10 years ago

the next consoles won't be physical devices blah blah blah

maybe it'll happen if internet service becomes reliable and fast everywhere in the world where they sell their consoles and the games
US/UK aren't the only markets

65 million to develop the game over 4 years doesn't seem like a lot unless the employees get shit pay

R* with 100 employees getting an average of 150k would mean 60mil over 4 years. that leaves no room for licences. Which means they probably got paid like 60-80k averaged out

edit: checked and it seems 80k is the industry average for game devs, with programmers getting the highest pay and QA getting the lowest (90 and 50k)

Do a proper KotOR which features Revan

They've totally forgotten about the original KotOR, do they even remember why they named the MMO ToR

Yeah and we all know how WoW clones fare...

You'd think that people would get the hint by now

I found these charts showing the subs for popular mmos

They do this every time

oh do they?
got my hopes up for a second there coz I don't have a PS3 any more and this was pretty much the only game I wanted to play on it.

hopefully the PC version won't be delayed too much

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online to Use Subscriptions

EVE and WoW are the only real subs based MMOs that are successful right now.
With WoW rumored to go F2P very soon and EVE having its Plex based hybrid subscription model this will be the only subscription based MMO around by the time it launches.

If its another WoW clone set in the Elder Scrolls its doomed to fail just like SW:TOR

I never liked how time was managed in the Sims 3.
Maybe its changed but I used to get my sim up at 5am to take a shower, eat get ready for work but that used to get them ready by 9am.

Time wasn't done properly or the animations for the tasks needs to be faster.

It seems that its not just about publishing but also about licencing, even with kickstarter a licence holder can still screw you over

I believe MS announced more exclusives that Sony has so far.
What MS has is their recent partnership with EA which will probably be MS throwing money at the big publishers to get some sort of a deal to make their console more appealing as far as games go.

You'd think retailers would push the PS4's onto the consumer when selling but I think they are also waiting to figure out how the xbox used game system will work for them.

In Australia the pricing has been announced: PS4 $550 and XB1 $600 on launch day

Thief 3 was brilliant, some ppl can never be happy, however this looks like thief's creed coz AC doesn't have a good enough competitor ATM and ubi is just milking it as fast as they can. Eidos just wants a slice. I'll probably buy it.

The way EA and like think is that sure we got an always on feature and micro transactions, people will whine and complain but after a month they'll still be playing the game, and they will buy future games as well.
In the long term EA doesn't care unless a very large majority decide to petition with their wallets, which will never happen.

They already got your sim city money, some time down the line they'll get your BF and sim city expansion money as well

The director is like the driver of a car, there are many different components working to make the car move but its the driver who chooses which way to go.

So yup, he's the guy who had the final say on the RMAH and making it all core and central

When he saw the stats for item drops after first 2 weeks he chose to modify it.
Ofcourse he didn't program it in, but he was the one who decided that it should go down by x %

News Comments > Diablo III 1.07 on PTR

Since you lot wanted to share old war stories...

I got this D3 on day one and had a blast playing it solo, then I played it with friends. I even didn't mind the hours of replaying an area with a friend coz it was a lot of fun

Then after some random patch, I wasn't really having fun...actually the game became quite a pain. So I logged on to the general chat room and asked wtf happened....apparently repair costs went through the roof and IAS was uber nerfed

stuck around for a few weeks, even visited their forums and did all the "like" bullshit to support a feature people wanted, but it just was never the same.

Now I play XCOM coz its fun to play.
