There are no signs of intelligent life here. Should we move on Captain?

Let's try one last time, this time, I'll use basic stuff so you can understand.

We're using 3000 as a number of people who we assume WILL IN FACT buy the game. Got it? Greaaaaat.

So we have appx 150k dollars in profit that can be earned by not including a number.

Now, we have the rest of the people, who don't care either way. They will buy the game regardless.

It will cost our company zero dollars to simply, NOT put a number in the title.

Do you see where were headed? lol yaaah you do

So we just drop the number, add a couple hundred thousand bones to the pile and wambabalam, we've paid some bills!

We're a great team you and I!

It's OK to admit you were wrong. because you are. You prove it even further here. You don't even know how the profit of a sold game works. Squarenix doesn't just sell 3k copies and make $150k. Of course if you had clue one about how business worked you'd know that. But I don't expect you to, so go one, throw another tired petty insult my way and blabber on more.

It'ssssss MATH TIME! na na na nan na nan na MATH TIME!

So, we have 30% Publisher Fee, 15% Developer Fee, 15% Marketing, 20% Hardware Maker, 20% Retailer! That's 100% THE WHOLE PIE!

Alright moving on, Square Enix both develops AND Publishes Dragon Quest! SWEET DEAL!

So that means they make 45% on each game sold! Holy canoodles!

Now we also have to take into account that digital distribution is a bigger factor now than it was in 2011, so lets bump 5% off of that retailer and into the hands of the publisher!

So we're at 50% profit PER UNIT! Dayyyum, lots of sweet, sweet moolah!

So, Dragon Quest X is probably going to be 50.00, that's fair? Right? Yah dats fair!

So 25 bucks per game sold!

We're using a base 3000 as people like me who can't stand playing sequels.

Basic, basic, super basic math time! Nana nanananana BASIC BASIC SUPER BASIC MATH TIME!!!!

3000 x 25.00 = 75,000.00

Well crap, not quite the mountain of cash that is 100k, but still, enough to pay for the entire Art and Animation side of the development!

Are we there yet? Do we need to go further into this rabbit hole of mystery?
