@Shahada1976 This is the United States dude. It is about making money. Nobody is making you a game console to give you a way to pass time because they feel sorry for you. Nobody is feeling charitable. Expressing disdain because someone is offering you a new and improved product or experience in exchange for a dollar value is extremely...dumb.

@jd7904 @AggrandizedUser

That is idiotic. There is no basis for such a foolish exaggeration.

@EL_Bomberdor I think that not enough is currently understood about what Microsoft's real intentions are. How much are we going to pay? Will it be a flat fee? Will it depend on the particular title? These are the things we need to know before we leap to conclusions. However, I think that people may be less inclined to trade games in, because people are going to be less likely to pick up used games. I think there is a strong possibility that developers will be put into a position where they will actually have to really try to put out a killer product. For Rockstar, this is a given, as they usually do amazing work. Other studios with less talented individuals may have a harder time staying afloat.


There are ups and downs to both sides of this debate. The upside for the gamer? This could be similar to skimming the muck off the top of a pond.


Microsoft needs to make sure if they are going to take a cut for used games that the developers also get a cut, as it is ultimately their product. I am sure that Microsoft knows this, and will probably find a good way to make it work. However, if they don't, it could really bite them in the ass.

@rising_k Because it's about money. There would be no incentive for people to produce anything otherwise. Nobody wants to toil away for hours and hours over years and years to simply hand you something you can entertain yourself with, without any type of compensation.


And games were expensive in the 90's too. People always forget to factor in the inflation.

@Rickchavis49 There's probably a lot of influence coming down from activision too.

mp looks familiar...oh yeah been there done that. And the SP is the same shitty formula as the last one. How disheartening. Was such a great series until the last one came out and ruined it all. More garbage with a sixty dollar price tag.

Nope. Looks terrible. Splinter Cell fell by the wayside with the release of the last one, which was absolutely terrible. It is a stealth game, and we should be able to play it stealthily. Being forced to take people on head on is not the splinter cell I loved. It really is too bad. I know games have to evolve, but they didn't have to keep the same formula as the last one, considering this one appears to be a prequel.
