So the idea that PUBG "invented" the BR genre is just poppycock.

This is the strawman that fuels the thread.

It's not a strawman argument because I'm not quoting anyone in this thread. I'm piggybacking off of Jim's comments in his video about BlueHole's perception that they invented the genre. (The exceedingly British "poppycock" should be a clue.)

Bluehole is not claiming to have invented the BR genre.
I don't care if it's you, Jim, or anyone else. It's a strawman.
A strawman being a "form of argument and an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent."

That's your perception. I wasn't refuting or giving the impression of refuting anyone's comment in this thread. So you can stop insisting that it is.

Technically, Epic software could sue BlueHole for copyright infringement. They created one of the first Battle Royales called Unreal Tournament.

Also, decades ago Red Storm Entertainment created Rainbow Six. A true BR where when you died you had to wait until the end of the map's round.

There's also Valve's Counter Strike that follows a similar BR style.

GW2's Beta Weekend Event 3 on July 20-22, 2012 concluded with a finale of "Hunger Royale" in which players were split into teams. They were given supplies and food, but after the food ran out, they were left with a debuff that slowly killed them of hunger. That finale went on to appear in a mini-game in the Southsun Cove update on November 18, 2012, called "Southsun Survival."

All of these appeared YEARS before PUBG or Fortnite. So the idea that PUBG "invented" the BR genre is just poppycock. All they did is the same as what Blizzard did with MMOs, or Facebook did with MySpace. They just made it popular. Epic, with all their decades of experience, and the fact that they made Unreal Tournament, just made BR better (according to Jim Stirling).

Regarding frivolous boneheaded law suits:

Joshua: A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of Minecraft?

They bring such a lawsuit, they better know they're opening a Pandora's Box of negative vibes towards their property.

Maybe they'll use the Chewbacca defense.

Cochran: ...ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider. (pause for effect) Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!

Gerald Broflovski: Damn it! ... He's using the Chewbacca defense!

Cochran: Why would a Wookiee, an 8-foot-tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of 2-foot-tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself: What does this have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm a lawyer defending a major record company, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're in that jury room deliberatin' and conjugatin' the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.

An open and shut case.

Steam, uPlay, Origin, Battle.net etc. etc. are all video game rental shops. The only (big) digital download platform that allows you to assume ownership of your games is GOG.

If you want to get technical, we could say you don't buy software. You buy the licensing agreement that permits you to use the software. Semantics aside, those are distribution services. In other words, you don't rent software from them. You buy software. Please don't confuse the definition of what they are.

GameFly: "Rent Over 9000 Games & Movies." It looks like EA is going all-in for their Software-as-a-Service plan. I do know that SAAS works for apps like Adobe Cloud. Maybe it'll work for video games. My personal opinion is "renting" video games feels wrong; I prefer ownership. Not sure how EA is going to change a decade's old mindset. Maybe that's it. They're targeting the younger generation who can be conditioned to be more accepting of renting video games.
We've had subscription based games for years. That's similar.

Sure with console games. Not with PC games. At least not at the same level as renting console games.

Just bought Morrowind last night. Maybe I should have waited a day.

The Summerset pre-order promotion had a constant advertisement for the past three months. Both the launcher and the in-game store show it every time. Repeatedly, the ad stated if you preordered Summerset you get instant access to Morrowind. If you missed it, you either haven't been playing ESO, or you weren't paying attention. In either case, this isn't Bethesda's fault.

TL;DR If you waited a day you still wouldn't get Morrowind. You can't preorder after launch.

So salty! Bring back gentle KxMode please.

Common sense is never salty.

Amazon. Zenimax has a process to get mne a key to login, but their support hasn't sent it to me yet.

That's good. Hopefully, Amazon doesn't wait until your package arrives. That would negate the whole day-one pre-order thing.

And a bunch of us who sprung for the Collector's Edition got notifications that our packages were delayed. Whatever At least there is a proces to give us access until our boxes come in.

Never expect anything with tangible products to be delivered by the launch date. Most online stores don't know how to pre-ship these products so that you get them on launch date. The best thing to do is buy Collector's Editions in a store where you have it in hand on launch day. That said, I think you should get the key from the Collector's Editions so that you can at least play while you wait for the hard goods to arrive.

It’s a moment to reflect on the peculiarities of video game fame, its value and its costs.

What in the world is Polygon talking about? Cliff Bleszinski created his "fame" by being a bombastic dude-bro and then later alienating the demographic who helped him achieve his success. There are plenty of other developers who haven't gone this route, and their renown is based on merits so that even when they fail, they still succeed.
