QuakeCon Pre-Registration Tomorrow

The Bethesda Blog announces the lengthy pre-pre-registration period for QuakeCon 2012 is nearly over, and pre-registration for the Zenimax media game event will commence tomorrow evening. While the event remains free to general admission and BYOC attendees, they are also offering premium packages for sale which include SWAG and reserved seating. These packages will be offered on a first-come/first-served basis beginning at 8:00 pm EDT tomorrow.

Its not a bad thing, and it sure isn't as simple as "being good" to your customers. You can't make everyone happy, and it's hard to know what consumers want. When business is good and you can financially afford it, you don't have to make hard decisions or compromises that potentially screw over part of your consumer base in order to keep your company afloat.

Ironically, it's the most successful companies that end up screwing customers over the most. Just look at Activision, Ubisoft, EA, Microsoft, etc. Those companies aren't exactly struggling to stay afloat but they have no problem nickel & diming customers or resorting to anti-competitive business practices.

Microsoft has mountains of money but that doesn't stop them from shelling out millions of dollars for timed exclusivity in order to hurt anyone that doesn't have an Xbox. Take CoD DLC, for example. CoD is a multiplatform game, yet MS and Activision agreed that it would be fine to screw PS3 and PC customers by making the DLC exclusive to Xbox for a month.
