I started playing Ark during the preview stage and since then they have done nothing to fix or optimize the game. Literally the only thing that has changed is they've added more dinos and items.
I'm not sure if what you're saying is true, but I have been playing Ark since it launched on console, and in fact was playing it a little yesterday and today. A lot has changed aside from just "adding more dinos" and compared to how it ran at launch there has been a lot of improvement. Needless to say though the gameplay far outweighed the technical issues
Mr_arizona posted...What does it say about the state of these games that we can get refunds for them?
Don't mind the SL1Club guy he doesn't even have an Xbox he's just taking shots here as payback for Street Fighter V flopping hard and selling poorly. The same game he worships launched at full price a broken and incomplete mess (still is to this day) but here he is being a good Sony hypocrite it's almost like naturally runs in that fanbase to be a hypocrite.
Nothing comes out as you plan it out to be.
Then explain why Ark still has all these issues like crappy AI and collision detection despite being long out of the "preview" stage. I started playing Ark during the preview stage and since then they have done nothing to fix or optimize the game. Literally the only thing that has changed is they've added more dinos and items.
...and? none of that means there's "half a game". there was pretty much always an entire gaming experience in ark.
but i'm not sure you'd really know that, since it doesn't seem like you ever really played it. the game runs a million times better now than it did, and they didn't just add dinos and items.
Purchasing unfinished games largely reduces any impetus the dev has to actually finish the game; most of which will never be truly finished games.

You said "MS needs refund in case you accidentally buy something". MS doesn't need refunds for that reason that's your own fault not MS fault.
"Why do people buy unfinished games"
Why do people pre-order new consoles?
Why are people pre-ordering Teslas?
Why are companies ordering Tesla Semis?
Why is Kickstarter a thing?
Why do banks give out loans for renovations?

There should definitely be a refund option. So many times I've bought a game only to discover it's a piece of s***. The trailers are misleading, don't trust them.
...especially when the game doesn't have a free trial available...but they see fit to charge for it...
Q: "I presume there will never be an Xbox One sold without it...Would that be correct?"
A: "Correct. Xbox One is Kinect." Microsoft VP
It’s a game preview for $30 so you should know that going in. The con is it isn’t a finished product and should improve as they update it. It’s also not guaranteed to improve and can have support dropped at anytime. The pro is as it improves you keep getting updates and never pay more. So in the end you have complete game for $30 while someone buying it at that point may pay more as they can and most likely will increase purchase price like ARK did. It’s not rocket science you bought a preview game and there are pros and cons to it. Know what you guys are buying and take responsibility for yourself. The game is fun! It’s a win so far in my book.
I am changing everything that depresses me when I look at it. Try not to be one of those things. GT: Net Sh4rk
