News Comments > Ubisoft and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Draw Fire for Game Music Solicitation
1. Re: Ubisoft and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Draw Fire for Game Music Solicitation Jul 15, 2019, 18:03 Rilcon
 
Spec work is fairly common... it's basically like doing an interview, asking for an artist to produce a portfolio, or a programmer to do a code test.

That's assuming Ubi's asking for 30 second samples or mood documents or the like, not original full 3.5 minute pieces they magically own the license for on submission.

Who cares? This dumb thing still exists? lul.
It's one of Steam's most played games and regularly has over 50k concurrent players.

So, a lot of people care.

lul.

12 year olds are people now? 'K

Yes, 12 year olds, both physically and, thankfully for your sake, mentally, are indeed counted as being people.

Ahh, thanks for the clarification. Anyway, if software companies can engage in regional pricing than consumers should be allowed to play those reindeer games as well. Don't tell me you're selling a game for 50% less in Timbuktu and I can't buy a key from them.
Regional pricing exists because publishers are aware that wages in certain regions are far lower than in others, so to get any sales at all they lower the price to a point people in the region deem acceptable for the entertainment/money ratio. In the end, they try to go by "x hours of work = game"

People outside that region, despite earning ten or more times more money for doing less actual work, jumping virtual fences in order to pay less, is kind of a spit in the face to the people in those regions who will be the ultimate victims when publishers decide to just pull out. Because in the end, you're saying "55 hours of work for a Moroccan equals a game, but since I can pretend to be a Moroccan, 2 hours of work for me equals a game for me".


Obviously you, and a vast majority of consumers, don't care about these things. You care about getting what you want for the least amount of money/work possible, and screw whoever worked on the product or who's affect by your market adulterating actions. And so the wheel turns.

And of course, the same people that will complain about regional pricing and will abuse it are the same people that will complain that EGS doesn't have full regional pricing.

I wonder if there are any other product categories in which grown men dogpile on top of each other to demonstrate who cares least about a new release not necessarily aimed at them.

I'm about as interested in this as I am in a bowl of goat head soup.
Thanks for putting the effort into stating you don't like a thing. Do you often go into news articles about things you don't care about to let everyone know you don't care about them

It'll be fun in coop, but the price better be right.

Although will I have time if I'll be playing the new Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which is a much more deep and grand experience in every way? Probably not.

Reach is one of 4 or 5 (6?) games in the Master Chief Collection, which I assume will be $60.

Reach alone will be $10.

Anyway, I liked these games, they're straight forward fun. The rancid "PC elitism" was funny as a meme 10 years ago, sort of lame when it's taken seriously still today.

We've already seen one Steam change: increased revenue sharing by sales numbers. That change doesn't happen without EGS. As EGS improves and gains market share, we'll see further changes. The exclusive thing won't last forever, but will get EGS strong enough so they can compete.

So as a consumer, how are you benefiting from this?
As a consumer, you get game companies able to reinvest more money into more and/or better games.

Now queue the cynic that's quick to state that the increased revenue will exclusively go to CEO bonuses.

Is it by underhandedly writing up a project contract that diverts a studios milestone bonuses to your private account to pay for fetish porn and strip shows, aka, "Pulling a Randy?".

Back, with at least one video removed. Guess we don't have to teach people about nazis, we can just erase their existence off the internet and hope that has no negative consequences down the line /s

God bless moderation by algorithm.

The "security" thing is just script-kid "hackers" running leaked email/password pairs through their login. They're a big target (Fortnite/v-bucks), and people tend to use the same email to register on multiple services, and too many also use the same password. The same email/password combos getting leaked/hacked this very site's been reporting about happening every other day for the last five years.

Of course, people using the same email/PW combo as they did on PSN or whatever hacked service is clearly Epic's fault. Epic's sin here is that they actually notify you that someone tried to log in with your account; most sites/services won't at all, or unless they go over a certain number of attempts.

Are you possibly implying that increased revenue could lead to better/more games for consumers to enjoy, or even better work conditions?

Nah, everyone knows the 18% goes straight to the CEO's next yacht.

That's sarcasm, but tbh most people believe it works like that for every company on the planet.
