Net revenue went up. Profits went way down.

And people say publisher's will be able to sustain itself for much longer. This is a fucked up business model that's already bringing the biggest down.

The only game I know does F2P damn well is Path of Exile. If all F2P adopted that model all would be good. Instead, PoE is an island in a sea of fucking freemium greed.

When quotes like this comes from developers is what scares me the most. Out of all people they should know better.

They need to hype the platform so they'll throw every other platform under the bus, facts be damned!

PS4 version is 99.99...WTH? Will that be the new standard price for next gen console games?

Check it out on Amazon

Placeholder, but do expect a price increase with this new generation, all generations brought a price increase to games.

Good links here thanks! Loved the Amiga demos, too.

Anyone remember the one short Amiga demo, I think by Silents or by Crystal (?) where it just had a bunch of balls with piano music going? You could set all sorts of parameters for the balls as they animated and make lots of very cool patterns. Been trying to find it for years and haven't yet. I loved the music, oddly, and it was fun and rewarding to see all the different animations by changing the values..


That demo is likely to be found in this FTP:

ftp.amigascne.org

In fact pretty much every demo ever made on the Amiga can be found there. I recommend using WinUAE as the emulator.

I'm leery about the inter-connected / social thing. I don't want to be constantly online, nor have some random asshat in my game. So I hope you can play the game entirely offline, if you wish, otherwise it is a no-sale for me.

Same here, but I'm pretty excited about this game. Let's hope that they haven't turned into full retards at Ubi, and are not going the Sim City route.

History, unfortunately, proves that Ubisoft can go full retard too many times. I have an eye on this game but I'll get it only if it can be played offline.

I was part of the C64 and later Amiga scene and was a legal trader. Damn, those were the days, sending and receiving huge packets filled with diskettes that contained only demos. Didn't stop the police from opening them in search of piracy or even seizing some of them mistakenly thinking it was pirated goods. Always get a laugh remembering the police in those days usually had no idea on how to operate an Amiga.

I miss these days. I met most of the guys that went on to form DICE when they were part of The Silents group, and met a ton more people that are pretty much legends in the gaming industry today. It was fun being a trader back then, using mail and/or BBS to distribute and spread demos and intros and megademos and dentros.

You can't hate one company for being monopolistic, while praising or being ok with Valve doing the same thing pretty much.

If you really think people only hate on EA because they are being 'monopolistic' then you have your head in the clouds... or up somewhere a little closer and smellier.

Your continued attempts to draw parallels between how Steam and EA do business and treat their customers when in truth there is no comparison at all serves to prove you are either an EA Fanboy or a Valve hater - and in either case, easily ignored.
The easiest and most recent example (and not even the biggest crapfest they've been involved in), would be simcity. Not just the initial problems, but the totally incompetent way they handled dealing with it.

If you look at my comments on threads about that fiasco, I was initially willing to give EA (yes even EA) some benefit of the doubt. But noooo. Everytime I thought they couldn't get any stupider or screw it up more, they went and did something even worse.

Hell, the new Simcity 2.0 patch has broken more stuff than it fixed!

A nice article from some stock brokers that pretty much share my view on EA. They're heading for extinction if nothing is done soon.

Nice article.

They also pretty much spell what I've been saying about the gaming industry for a while, if nothing is done it's heading for a crash, though thankfully this crash, if it happens, will only affect publishers. Indies may save the industry and gamers in more ways than one.

I do feel terrible for anyone who loses a job in this economy. I'm sure the vast majority of the people who got let go have nothing to do with the EA policies we've all come to love to hate.

It all sounds, and feels, like blindly cutting costs. Seen this happen too many times and often the corporation that starts doing this ends up on a downward spiral that often cannot be stopped.

It's the people who are now out of a job who get to carry the weight of EA's failure.

You know Creston, I now share your pain that the idiots we put on ignore should not have their quotes shown up for us.
