sony doesn't care about game-developing people

if they did, they would ban used games on the ps4 so the scum from gamestop stop taking their money away

and then maybe the prices of games would even go down because retailers wouldn't leech from them anymore

this is why all the game developers are going to go xbox exclusive and make much better, more creative games than what the ps4 will have

Everyone keeps telling me that they can't ban used games, because certain regions and countries have laws preventing them from doing so.

Plus, all of those ideas sound incredibly anti-consumer. Doesn't matter where they go, if developers start adopting those ideas they're going to lose sales to the people that don't restrict their customers. People don't like restrictions.

If you're not going to share with the entire class, then don't bother sharing at all.
Online is the worst thing to happen to gaming.

No, they don't. At all.

Since you brought it up, YOU get to prove that they do.

this guy is probably more of an authority on the subject than you are, being an actual game dev, so here you go:

LMFAO @ Silicon Knights.

So tell me one thing -

A Triple-A game costs 9 digits to make. 9 digits to advertise.

They cost $60 for about the first week of their launch.

So, lets say the game ran the publisher $200 million to have made and advertised.

They would need what, 3 million to get anywhere near?

Odd. A lot of the triple AAA games DO get near that.

The ACTUAL problem of the industry is the fact that everyone puts out things THEY think are gold, but what everyone else sees as a lump of coal.

And they all expect CoD sales on that garbage.

USED GAMES hurt NOTHING. The developers are paid to DEVELOP the game. The Publisher is paid by retail stores to get copies shipped. Retail gets paid by us.
