Watch Dogs set the example for an all new low on a multitude of things. Versions being one of them. That chart is truly ridiculous and the developer should feel ashamed and the publisher just as guilty.
This is absurd. I think I'm going to stop preordering any new games after Destiny. Even then, I've only preordered Destiny through Amazon.
All this exclusive stuff and companies willing to work with Gamestop for exclusive stuff like missions...I honestly am just going to forego any new content that is given to Gamestop. I hate their business model.
This trend sucks........
Die Videos sind OFT gut... die VideoÃ¼berschriften aber OFT Ã¼ erzogen und Theatralisch...
Ein wenig mehr info zum Vid und dafÃ¼r weniger gehabe tÃ¤te der seite GUT denke ich...! :-)
That's been around for years online...
Game stope will be out of business in 5 years. No need for them no more. You can download games. Same happen to blockbuster. If you have any stock sell now. Before its to late
And this is why a) I've stopped buying physical copies of games and b) why I tend to game less and less on console and more and more on PC. And I will NOT be renewing my GameStop discount card membership.
I actually have a feeling Gamestop won't be out of business because of gamers AND the gaming companies working WITH them. Why I say gamers is because there doesn't seem to be much of a movement large enough boycotting or monetarily being against exclusive content/preorders. Also, if Gamestop gets cooperation with businesses to sell exclusive stuff through Gamestop and gamers keep getting suckered in (as in, buying the stupid exclusives/preorders/dlcs), it only helps Gamestop do better.
Um... I love video games, so this is very hard for me to say... but necessary. It's time we start boycotting every last bit of this micro-transaction bullshit.
You are just about 5 years late.
More than that lol... I'm sure the first "expansion pack" is what inspired the DLC and micro transaction flood we're drowning in now =/
I have never bought any DLC for any game.
That said, I stopped buying ~anything~ from GameStop long ago.
They have tried to get away with sneaky sh*t before and that was reported here at HotHardware.
Their tendency to piss off the customers that support them is going to kill them off.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
More reasons not to shop at GameStop or to support Ubisofts and other publishers business practices.
This is why I love how they cant apply their bullshit business practices to PC gaming.
The greed is strong in GameStop.
People still shop at GameStop? Who knew?
Gamestop is still around?
I think things like this are reasons why I agree with a recent Polygon columnist to not preorder games (http://www.polygon.com/2014/7/10/5887425/aliens-isolation-ripley-preorder-exclusive-no).
The sole exceptions are preorders executed similar to what CDRedProjeckt has done for Witcher 3, preorders to play an earlier state of the game during a period of time feedback given would be useful, and for games underrepresented in how they are executed.
CDRedProjekt gives you a significant discount on preordering Witcher 3 if you bought previous games, even if it was outside of their platform (Steam, Amazon, retail, etc). In addition to that you get beta access to another game in the Witcher Universe for free.
In addition to that you get exclusive/early access on material towards promoting Witcher 3 and understanding what's to come with the final game.
This is totally a beneficial preorder package without it punishing release-day purchasers of Witcher 3 of the core game they delivering next year, nor does it have content that'll augment the game to be a different, easier experience directly through gameplay like Dark Soul 2's preorder DLC arguably (while most don't engage in the multiplayer portion for a while into the game, the DLC gives preorder buyers such as myself an unfair advantage vs. other new game players).
Speaking of Dark Souls 2, as well as games such as Divinity, Child of Light, and so on, these games I feel should be preordered to in fact help towards them being validated of being warrantable games to produce that'll hopefully result in similar games be produced in the future and additional content after they're released.
I guess I'm one of the few who like preordering. I've never ran into an issue where the game I wanted wasn't there when it came out. I also enjoy the special content I get when I preorder, specifically Call of Duty. The ability to get the game you want guaranteed with the added bonus of bonus content, sounds like an awesome idea. However, if I'm not preordering a game, mostly due to it being a brand new IP I haven't played, then I'll wait for reviews and buy it from somewhere other than Gamestop. I guess there's a lot of gamers that aren't committed to getting a game. My preorder list if you cared: Destiny, COD: AW, Halo: Master Chief Collection
