While I generally dislike EA and David DeMartini came off as a bit of an ass in the interview. I do think steam sales cause people to devalue games much like piracy does. One can argue the sales try to profit on the fact that the value of games are already devalued due to piracy but I believe it also perpetuates a lower value. The cost of making games risen but the prices haven't, contrary to most other industries. I recall being a child and buying a new copy of Secret of Evermore for the SNES for 74.99$. That was just the plain game, no collectors edition. Using a simple inflation calculator I could expect to pay 113.05$ for the game assuming inflation of 2.44%. If the average price of a big company game was 50$ in 1995 then it would be 75.37$ now.

I'm really interested in this but I'm taking a stand to draconian drm so I hope they don't have garbage drm in it. Since however EA owns them, they probably will.

Wow, people are idiots. Hitman 2 is one of the best games I have played in awhile. I enjoyed playing it. Not once did I think it was racist. Does it really matter anyway. I am sure someone would be pissed off if the game had all caucasions or something.
