I dont know, look at games in farm-vile where the poor people are spending hundreds of dollars a month
The problem is even if the majority dont "buy" so many would still buy used because it would be a "deal" (new game price will rise because its "new" and can be played with out "extra cost", and so they make more money then they would if they kept it the old way
people said they would never make money with DLC, they did and then some, they counter what ever amoutn dont buy it, and incress the price and know there is always going to be a % that will
Yeah well, then, you can just go ahead and, block my dick.
Okay that didn't make any sense but fuck these guys if they go through with it. The amount of greed in the gaming industry is beyond ridiculous and I have no problems refraining from purchasing any next gen console if this is the kind of shit they're going to pull. Things like online passes and paying extra for used games and important features removed from games only to be released as DLC later are getting overwhelming here. Just trying to squeeze every last drop out of gamers, as they know fanboys will continue lapping this garbage up. I've just about had enough with the video game industry in general, think I might just let myself off and be left behind soon.
They would kill their own business by doing this. Can you imagine how many casual gamers and people simply wont upgrade if they couldnt rent, buy second hand or swap games between friends. I would still eventually buy the next xbox but I wouldnt end up playing most the games available.
They have also likely tracked this by looking at the amount of online profiles with achievements on a game and then the sales numbers. I bet they have double or triple the amount of " users " than sales.
