Does this mean It will finally remove that damn box from the corner of the screen without hacking your own ini's. Oh wait it means they're just going to force upgrade everyone that hasn't.

Houston we got a problem forced upgrade
No problem from MS's view. They will force the upgrade then after upgrade will prompt you to pay or else it will go into limited time trial, then expired mode.

They've done all sorts of other douche moves around win 10, I'm expecting them to do a few more.

This is one of my favorite games. I've played since 2007, when it wasn't free, and you got it in the Orange Box. I have almost 1500 hours in it. I swear I'd have more, but I think I reset my stats at some point.
Do you mean in game time or steam shown time? Steam didn't start tracking time for the first few years, which can't be reset. TF2 had an internal time tracking mechanism before that as I recall (the one that shows on map loading screens) which is the one you can reset.

Regardless, they got $131,000 in 3 days. If they ramped like Wasteland 2 or Shadowruns Returns, they'd be around $700-$800k. Barely making it. Late pushes as they were close, though, could probably nearly guarantee it.
Probably they didn't want to get just minimum, one of those projects where minimum wouldn't actually cover making the game and would fail 2 years later when they ran out of money.

Finally, someone with some reading comprehension skills!
Reading more than the blurb; it's like a cheat code for the Internet.
Wait what? There's someone who actually RTFA?

Even if they do a PC version it will be a couple years after milking the money from consoles, like they do with GTA.

So yawn, wake me when they release the game and POSSIBLY put out a PC version in a few years. Maybe 2020 there will be more info on a PC version of RDR2.

Or maybe they will screw all their PC fans again (even though they started as a PC game company).

I don't get how others even notice other people texting, it's silent and the light is inconsequential.
But it's not. Lots of people leave the "beep at every letter pressed on keyboard" option on. And lots of people leave cellphone background set to maximum to see it during the day, without thinking about battery usage.

Awesome story!

Sadly, the worker is liable to get in trouble, because he said he did it on his own time (not on behalf of Sony!), and the electronic communication he sent said that he couldn't modify it but was sending him a goody box. Only in the goodie box was the handwritten note.

Those are both hints that "hey dude, don't tell anyone, here's the official line, but on the down low I did this for you"

He should have never posted this on facebook unless he had permission from the worker to post it. Looking at the facebook posts, you can already see that people are thinking the company did it, not the worker on his own time. And the ignorant people posting things like that are just handing Sony more ammo to fire the guy. And that's why Sony wouldn't support a one off like this. Lots more people will expect it, and it hasn't gone through their Q&A.

I bet Sony will fire this guy, rather than take this work that was done and offer alternative controllers. Plus, if the guy used company funds and parts, that would make it worse.

Edit: Even nin's post below attributes it to "them" rather than "him"

So idiots hit Mic Drop instead of Send and cry about it. Typical blame something else besides themselves society.
When they replace buttons on the normal interface that usually do something else... and there's no feedback telling them they just blocked people from replying back to them so no one can email them to tell them what they did... yeah I'd say that's a reason to cry. That guy who lost a job, he'd probably have a legitimate court case.

School districts here in the states don't pay teachers well enough
The unions have been largely unable to do anything about it.
Oh I definitely agree with that first point, it goes to administration etc instead of teachers. Teachers are way underpaid. IT IS REDICULOUS THAT ANY TEACHERS SHOULD EVER BUY SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR KIDS.

But the second point depends on state. In California the teachers union is one of largest and strongest in nation. Here we have the problem that we can't get rid of the worst teachers.

I don't give a flying fuck how long it takes for them to belt out a "finished" product. Just because they have 100 million really only means that they have a long time to work on creating something excellent. And from this early alpha - I'd say they're doing fine.
$100 million would be a long time for many sensible studios. This one? Not so much the way they are throwing it away (such as the sub studios/offices they opened in other locations, and then closed again), or the expensive voice acting, etc.

Not a farmville clone, much much more in that game to do than farmville. I find it a fun, relaxing game with a lot of hidden depth and content to unlock as you and the seasons advance.
Plus as I understand it (haven't tried it yet) it's also mod friendly.

Seriously, Stardew Valley? Oh, PC Master Race, how you have fallen! A Farmville clone as the top seller? I'm so disappointed in you...
But hey, the highest rated game on steam right now is actually Factorio
PC game all the way

They're not fine with publishing child porn, he was obviously being flippant. I'm pretty sure this is an imaginary line because the real line is 18.

(Tipsy McStagger, wut? ...why?)
If he's being flippant, is that really a good choice to do in front of a JURY AND SWORN TESTIMONY?
I give it 50/50 he was being honest.
In either case, it just shows how big of a pile of crap he is.

And if they are morons like other past barely made it KS projects, they did something stupid like only set the goal to 50% of what they actually needed figuring that people would way overshoot it, and now go bankrupt trying to make the game.
Yes, that's happened... multiple times.

GMG has this for 25% off with code HIT25, so I figured why not drop less than $12 on the intro pack.
If I hate it, didn't waste much. If I love it, it will be a good start.
Incidentally that's a possible fail for Square Enix, if too many people get the intro pack and don't upgrade.
