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 am simply pointing out that what they say in regards to consumer "rights" and offerings they provide end up being more deception than actual need or desire.

No matter how much they get to "combat" <flavor of the decade> it will never be enough and it just ends up costing the consumer more due to all the doodads and verifications that are now installed in your hardware, software, and monitoring being paid for out of your fees on ISPs and what not.

You don't have a choice to opt out of any of this if ever want to own any kind of entertainment hardware like a television, dvd player or blu ray player. Or plan on using the internet, you're still paying for the privilege of being monitored because it ain't free and the conglomerates are not paying for it.

You might win on one front, but they are hammering at the doors, windows, roof, supports, and every other aspect of your consumer rights "house".

Think of it like the zombie invasion, they may be slow and stupid but eventually you'll tire and then you're done.

No one wants to live constantly berated by these companies, and yet they gain more and more access to your life through monitoring and taking over your alternative channels for entertainment.

The fact that it's taking place is the failing, it shouldn't even be up for debate because common sense says that meeting consumer needs is the best way to do business. Not passing laws and restricting access to the very thing you are trying to sell.

People care about this stuff, they just get presented these things in pretty packages and outright lied to...and then find out about the deception after the damage is done. They specifically target younger generations for their goods because they don't know enough to be skeptical when it comes to media conglomerates. And they target younger artists so they can lock them into contracts before they know enough to question. It's how they rested the rights to artist's works out of their hands for 50-80 years now. Look at Stan Lee and the creators of Superman. Or the guy who came up with V for Vendetta or the Watchmen.

The industry of entertainment has no integrity, they have literally been screwing people over for decades for their gain. Today is no different. Piracy is just their new mantra.

Sorry it took a while to respond, but there's not much to say really.

All the stuff you are angry at them for is stuff most people don't care about. If they agreed with you they would fight or vote with their wallet, but they don't. You seem like you're more mad at consumers for not agreeing with you than the companies selling shit that sells.
