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."

So you are saying Veterator, that PC games are like the same as anit-aids drugs?

I've never meet a person who would die if they cant get there PC games.

I've meet two who would die sooner if they could not get there anit-aids drugs (which in this country , NZ, and paid for by the goverment)

ENTERTANTMENT is not a right of life.

To steal it is to steal it, not a 'I only stole the beard so my family could eat' type of stealing.

The funny side being that those stealing only help to make less of it in the future.

I am saying that people tolerating something is not the same as them not caring.

If that's the only way they can get their entertainment, that's what they have to tolerate. It does not mean they don't care that many things are being forced upon them in the name of something they have no part in (piracy), assuming they are even told of them.

If the only way you can treat aids is with pills, you take pills or die of aids sooner. Here in the states, medical treatment is not a right of life...so it's vastly more comparable. If I want to breath, I have to take albuterol or some equivalent.

They deemed Albuterol based on CFCs about 5-6 years ago against the environmental laws due to CFCs, so they eliminated the CFC and came up with a new concoction that barely delivers the medication to your lungs during a full blown attack and I find it vastly inferior. So now on top of having an inhaler that doesn't work as well, I also take inhaled steroids to prevent the attacks from happening because the inhalers are no longer effective enough to treat it. I'd love to go back to a more effective AND cheaper CFC based albuterol....it'd save me about 40-60 bucks every 2-3 months and lower my insurance rates because I'd be on less medication to simply breath. I know something else better exists and is cheaper, yet I am not able to get it due to the CFC laws in the US pertaining to medication you mostly suck into your lungs. It also gave rise to a new bunch of drugs that had no generics because albuterol was now a different formula AND less effective so they put a bunch of new stuff on the market that was insanely expensive and not covered by my insurance company. It's a pretty awesome business when you can get your old drugs banned for sale and put out a new non-generic to replace it.


Much like I am sure your friends would be upset to find out that a cure for aids had been discovered and possible for some time (Hypothetical, I am not saying there's a cure), but they passed a law to keep people on drug regiments because they view aids as an effective deterrent to prevent growth in prostitution (excuse) and it also just happens to be hugely profitable for the companies to treat instead of cure (true reason).

Or even if there was a drug that was vastly cheaper to make, had less side effects and the same or better results. But it was from a non-authorized drug company in NZ and the law says that unless the drug company has <arbitrary barrier to entry> beyond drug trials to prove the pills are safe, they can not sell them to NZ people. Getting them would then be "black market", but there's no good explanation as to why they can't sell the drugs in NZ except for <arbitrary barrier to entry> that all the big companies have. Maybe the drug companies go on and on about how black market pills like <miracle cure A> are hurting their business and it's illegal, plus it's possibly detrimental to patient health and will make all future medical costs from these authorized companies to be more expensive and restricted, so now they want to be informed on all blood tests done by these AIDS patients for these black market pills. And all of the cost of the more costly drugs, the tests and anything else they need to "combat black market pills" will be on the government's dime or the patient's dime.




Passing laws to prevent adaptation to changing markets and implementing controls in the hardware, software, and at the ISP level just reinforces their current model. They kill or cripple anything "new" that comes out with licensing fees and increasing subscription fees to catch up to it, at the same time many of the same companies own ISPs that are trying to limit broadband usage EXCEPT for their offerings don't count against it. Reinforcing their traditional model, they can't just produce content and let others distribute, they have to keep it in their hands so they can control and leverage it against other markets they dabble in.

None of this is to say that there are not common sense laws, like FDA approval on things to be sold for use. But we're getting into territory in the entertainment field where they control the policy makers, the investigation arm, distribution, creation, hardware, software, and want to control the task forces formed to investigate the very thing they are convinced it happening. It like the FDA belonging to a Healthcare(IAA) group and they can choose who stays and who goes, because they make the rules.
