This is amazing.. could refund system on Steam actually hurt WB enough?
What else? Before that, customers got angry but were not able to do much about it. The publisher already had their money. Now?

Customer:
"This game sucks!" *presses refund button* "Sweet! Got my money back!"

Publisher:
"Dammit!"

All though they will probably go the easy route and just go with the console market.
The console market is anything but "easy". Lot of devs and middle class publishers burned their hands, when consoles were all the hype 10 years ago. Either you are already a major publisher, shelling out millions and millions of marketing dollars to create demand in a saturated market (making more money in the process, because there isnt a lot of variety left) or you simply bust.

But still many companies and execs are blinded by Activision: "If only we could make 10-20% of what Bobby is doing with CoD or Skylanders, we will be rich!".

I'm glad Epic just didnt shut them down after EA was not very impressed with Bulletstorms sales performance, canceling all plans for Bulletstorm 2.

The premise behind the game doesn't grab. For an adventure ...
This was no ordinary "adventure". Games from Tale of Tales were always experiments in interactive narration and story telling. Artsy? Yes! Fascinating? Depends on your taste and what you want from a game.

Pretty sure Slick is an EA shill - just a really really terrible one.
No. He's just a sad troll. BluesNews may be around for a long time, but its too small to be relevant for majors like EA. If you want guerilla marketeers, just visit Kotaku. Or sites like 9gag.com, where posts for marketing purposes are indiscernible from genuine user posts.

You've got to remember that ms has all new upper management. The company is completely different now.
No, it isnt. Promoting Windows as a gaming plattform still is stupid when you pour millions and millions of dollar every year in the XBOX division to improve hardware & software and producing exclusive games. DirectX12 is only a marketing tool for Windows 10.

And to be honest, i like it that way. Windows is good plattform for a multitude of games from indies and majors, GfWL is vanishing into obscurity. I really do not miss anything MS could possibly offer besides providing a stable and solid OS.

Which is why we never saw another GOW on the PC after that. and why I hate that bastard.
Gears of War is Microsoft and only Microsoft decides, if and when a XBOX exclusive finds its way to another plattform. His Fullofhimselfness had nothing to decide on that matter.

So this is a PC exclusive title?
The ANNO series was always PC exclusive. This genre does not translate very well on consoles & controller. They have to make a different game, like Take2 did with Civ Revolutions.

What I find interesting is that a High school kid in the 80's not only understood wireless communication between various primitive devices and their control but could also code the whole thing on a relatively new system architecture and language.
What i find interesting is the estimated costs of replacing this old system. Between $1.5 and 2 million? Wtf? They just have to replace the control system, not the entire AC in every building!

When are developers going to stop expecting the worst from their customers? First piracy, and now this.
Sometimes because they absolutely would do the same. Expecting the worst from all of your customers mostly has its roots in a paranoic state of mind, assuming that everyone is out to get you! EVERYONE!! ONLY YOU!!!! ARGHLLLLL!

It almost looks too good to the point that I worry about their budget supporting it.
They are not making an open world game. Confined, small levels and dungeons. Not vast areas which have to be filled to be at least slightly interesting. They could use all the power modern graphic engines give them and still use only a fraction of the budget a game like Fallout 4 needs. Just look at Hawken. Gorgeous, stunning levels and art design, created by a small team with the UDK3 on a small budget in only a year.

So, 11 mio. unit sold of Bioshock Infinite.

How expensive was that game, when 11 mio. units are not enough to prevent the closure of Irrational?

There are a few exceptions, like the Borg ships or maybe the Sulaco, but usually space ships are designs that don't take the 3D nature of space in mind.
Its because the designers of those ship think only in two dimensions. How many shooters do you know with explicit vertical level design? Not many, because most gamers do not like levels, where they are forced to look up or down.

We are children of the savanna. Our ancestors developed in the vast planes of ancient africa. We humans prefer flat

How do you "reboot" a game series, which has no storyline, no narration, no "lore" and no tradition whatsoever? Everything you can do with arcade racing games has already been done with NfS over the years. What's there to reboot i wonder?

Or, silly me, maybe i took some stupid marketing blurb too serious

50/50? 0/100 concerning Take2 wishes. They cannot prevent a movie about GTA. They cannot prevent the movie using footage from the game. They cannot even prevent a movie about GTA, if GTA would have never been released. They just cant. They do not have the right to do so.

Nope. Wrong. I don't understand. Plenty of games out there that are PC only and do/did extremely well. Wasteland 2 for example. And tons of other indie games.
No, you are right. You dont have to understand. But ...

inXile is a privately held indie studio. They do not need to go BIG. They are, like Larian, just fine in making a decent profit. CDP on the other hand, is publicly traded company. They have to report to investors who are only interested in a fast return of their investment. Therefore CDP has to produce a big multi-platform AAA game, because thats the way to make big money in a short term. CDP was (!) an indie game developer.
