Yup, nailed it on the head, the aftermarket kills them, because it reflects the true price of the product... PC games today hold the attention span of the gamer for about 15 minutes. They soon realize the game is not fun because it has zero playability and are more annoyed than entertained...

Problem is definitely in the product and not the pirates.

The consoles are younger generation and more geek than gamer, so they RUN (not play) the game through the story, usually with cheats on to get past the battles and whatnot to get to the end story, then send flowers and emotes to the devs on what a great GAME (heh) it was. But in truth it was nothing more than a interactive story.

I'd say they don't even need cheats, because the average difficulty level in nowadays games is lower than used to be in the 80's and 90's games.

Got a hat(!!!) and another eyelander in a couple hours of gameplay. Should be this way since the start IMO. Can't wait for trading.

Not from what I've read

Where did you read that? The only thing I've ever heard Valve say on the topic was that they were undecided.

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1232729

Valve has never charged for extra content for the PC, and IMO they probaly woudnt for the XBOX either if not for M$... a dieing breed in the industry that are content to make a profit and not soak thier customers for every last dime they can (all hail Valve)

EDIT, You would think other people in the industry would take notice. All the free content Valve keeps adding to thier games just drives up the games value thus increasing sales. Not to mention the dedicated fan base they keep building, Valve has long term vision that the rest of the industry just cant see, all they can see is the short term money grab.

Yeah Blizzard, we are looking at you!

I'd like to propose a toast to Valve, for giving us periodically free TF2 stuff (weapons, maps, new gameplay and, of course, hats!) without charging NOTHING for that. Cheers!

At a most basic level no one really considers a used car over a new. They're very different markets. A used car has significantly less value and significantly more concerns. A used video game is identical to a new one.

Let's say I have a perfect copy of <insert the name of a game you bought and finished a couple months ago>, up to the last byte. Would you pay me the original price for that today ? No ? Why not ? It's identical to a brand new copy collecting dust in some shelf elsewhere!

No surprise here.Check Valve's numbers and you'll see more people playing soldiers than demomen. Yet, it was really close.

Tomorrow Valve will announce epic mounts.
Seriously now... Crafting was something already expected for months, I don't think it's a big deal as long you can earn the crafted equipment without grinding or farming.

I have XP on my notebook, and TBH I never had to reinstall it in almost 3 years of every day use. Now, I just built a new game box to me. Only for fun, I got my dusty Windows 2000 CD, slapped on it and... Guess what ? Every piece of my hardware worked just fine. I can play Doom 3 and Quake 4 on it flawlessly, no hiccups or crashes. And it uses nearly 60Mb less RAM than XP when just sitting idle. So, although I have enough RAM, CPU power and a good OpenGL video card to run Vista right now, I prefer to use it in something more productive, like playing games.
