Blues News isn't the whole gaming community. It is not the one and only place for opinions on games. I don't know what word to use, but it feels it's almost ignorant to go by a single forum as the status-quo on gaming. Ignorant is too strong a word, but it's like that.
In response about a developer having total control over the use, distribution and price of its game i have this to say: So what? Publishers have that total control over games, their prices and the distribution of games at the moment. Is it bad for the consumer? Doesn't seem to be. People are still willing to spend £35 for a PC game and £40 for a console game.
If publishers were cut out from the equation the chances are that prices of games would be reduced, simply because there would be no "middle man" charge.
Edit: Doom 3 maybe bashed, but that doesnt mean that id dont still have the respect and reputation they deserve. They've had 1 hiccough in their long line of releases and that is not bad. Valve had have 2 releases and cocked up one majorly. Thats bad.This comment was edited on Feb 9, 14:38.
