Bulletstorm Sequel Cancelled; PC Piracy Mentioned

In spite of EA saying the original "under-performed," a sequel to Bulletstorm was in the works at People Can Fly before being cancelled by parent company Epic Games reports GameSpot, who hear from Epic president Mike Capps on the topic. Mike indicates they have put the Polish developer on a different project they will "be announcing pretty soon," though there is no clue if this is the recently revealed PC game Epic is planning. "We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," he said. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon." He goes on to praise Bulletstorm and says he'd love to go back to the property, "but right now we don't have anything to talk about." Just to stir the pot a little, the story concludes with Capps' comment that sales of the PC version may have been harmed by piracy: "We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

I admit it doesn't prove anything, and I remain strongly against the practice of taking others' hard work and not paying for it, but it certainly debunks a lot of the shit spewed by industry suits who use piracy as a crutch as to why their businesses are sagging.

Well my point from the start has been that I see WAY too much piracy all around me to think it has no negative impact. Every time my girl and I go to someone's house they are watching pirated movies, playing pirated music or playing pirated games. Everyone my age brags about it, they laugh at me for spending money on this stuff. It's SOOO pervasive.

On the other hand so it Netflix... so I guess the point really is that no one knows. For rights holders though, one pirated copy is too much. They are not going to just deal with a world where their shit is available for free everywhere. Expecting them to just swallow that is naive... abuses mean regulation.

If they stopped your friends from pirating, would they buy stuff? Would they buy as much stuff as they had downloaded? Could they buy as much stuff as they downloaded? Could they afford to buy half? A fourth? A tenth?

Plus we have people growing up trying to find what they like, and if they can't afford to buy something to try out other options......you're going to have a hard time getting anything but the most popular and most advertised things to these people.

I just don't see people buying things in these circumstances, only once they really know that they want something whether based on past experience with the products from artist/producer/whomever or because they've actually played/heard/saw this stuff and know they liked it. I mean it's literally just pissing money away buying things you're not sure you'll even like..... And later in life you realize you don't want a bunch of shit laying around that you never use....so you stop buying stuff you can't try first.

Just look at the process like buying shoes...they got some cheap ass shoes out there and some really expensive shoes out there. If they make you want to chop off your feet because they are so uncomfortable, it doesn't really matter how inexpensive/expensive they were...you got robbed. Imagine trying to find out what shoes fit the best without being able to try them on, and they came with no helpful sizing or other information to make a decision on.

This is pretty much how they want you to buy everything, unseen, untested, etc. No reviews, no nothing. You buy it the first week it comes out, pay maximum price and never say a bad thing about it. Because if you say something bad about it, you probably didn't get the true "retail" copy and are complaining about the inferior "pirate" version. Hell if it causes your house to burn down because it made your computer catch fire, you keep your pirate mouth shut....never mind you have a receipt and other people complained about the issues who also have receipts. Pirates will say or do anything.
