I would say Always Online, but I guess that files under DRM. See also:
Shutting down servers intentionally leaving no alternative. Censoring footage, streams, images, even discussion of their games. Disc-locked content that never gets made/released because people didn't buy "enough."
Haseo: C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, I'm right here...TAAAAXIIIIIII!!!!!
How about releasing a game with 4 preplanned expansion DLC missions - but not bothering to port the final one over to the EU PS3 users because of $$.
Of course this final DLC level also happens to include an update with a new difficulty and level cap increase, item cap increase and some bug updates (one of which fixes the experience point glitch on the third DLC level which we paid for!).
Who done this you ask? the evil Capcom, NO - the diabolical EA, NO
The answer is sweet and innocent TRENDY with Dungeon Defenders and the only game maker I am boycotting due to their big FU to PS3 EU gamers.
At least Capcom and EA actually give you the option to buy any of their additional content and that final choice is up to you as a consumer.
We know exactly what they are. They are anti-consumer if the consumers says they are. We suffer because of it and we hate it. The corporations know this but they don't care. This is what anti-consumer means.
Just because you label something, doesn't mean that label is the truth. Most of this "suffering" is following the flock of complaining about it. You say the corporations don't care, yet that's your own words, and not theirs. What you call "anti consumer" is mostly "It's not what I want, so I'm going to complain!".
My second choice was DRM. That and the micro transactions are the only things with flipping out over. The rest you (and most people) clearly have no understanding of.
Wow talk about ego-centrism. "Only the stuff I don't like is anti-consumer!" You are guilty of the exact same things you're accusing others of LOL. I don't think you understand any of the stuff listed here.
