Other than, maybe, CoD maps, who gives a rats ass about getting DLC a month earlier?
Joey, have you ever been to a Turkish prison?
United Front Games would "love to make another Sleeping Dogs", the game's executive producer Stephen van Der Mescht has said, adding that the team is "really happy" that the title ended up as a new IP, rather than a True Crime game.
Discussing the story of Sleeping Dogs' resurrection in the latest issue of Game Informer, van Der Mescht stated that separating the project from the True Crime brand "was a huge relief".
"We never viewed the game as a True Crime game (although it shared similar features), but the tone we were trying to achieve was quite different," he said.
"All in all, we are really happy that we ended up back where we started with a new IP."
As part of its PlayStation 4 unveiling last week, Sony confirmed that its next-gen console wasn't going to block pre-owned software. Microsoft, on the other hand, has "gone halfway” between physical and digital distribution with the new Xbox, blocking pre-owned in the process according to Livingstone.
“With the next Xbox, you supposedly have to have an Internet connection, and the discs are watermarked, whereby once played on one console it won’t play on another," said Livingstone.

It's a good thing Gearbox stole art assets to help make such a successful game for Randy to hide behind.
"You can have four people on the same screen - no split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or if you're offline..."
While Hight didn't elaborate, the mention of offline play suggests the always-online nature of the PC and Mac versions of Diablo 3 may not apply to the console versions.

These guys are nothing like former Westwood, not even close -- I wouldn't give them a dime.
