Why are people so update they need a controller?

 

Developers basically stated this was going to be a straight port MONTHS prior to the PC release. As soon as I heard that, I went to my local store to buy Logitech F310 for $25. 

 

It's not like the developers mislead you in any way... they specially said it was going to be a straight port.

This game busted a quicky. It blew up quick and its already dead.

 

Server lists are going down. Population is going down. I guess everyone figured out how to survive and got tired of all their deaths coming from bugs. I guess it was fun for the first month and we could overlook all the bugs, clunky engine, and even a 500ms+ lag feeling while pinging 25ms. After a while, the game has nothing left. Theres nothing to do in the game once you master survival other than try to find other players only to engage in the worst FPS experience of any game... might as well play another FPS if you want that. What else is there to do?? Wait around until your next bugged out death or see how many times you can log in and out before you load up naked with no backup or weapons?

 

great potential.. i'll wait for a clone that can maybe execute it better.

Hackers... can't go a day in a popular server without dealing with at least one or two hackers a day.

Lag.. I ping 40 but somehow it feels like I'm pinging 600ms....

Clunky.. probably the worst gaming engine I have ever seen... everything is clunky and chunky.

Developer... while I admire Rocket for sticking to his guns, he makes some god aweful decisions and his lack of experience for coding really shows.

it is still a fun game to play for a bit, but once you have max gear there isn't really anything left else to do. all the great items in the game have been taken out so theres nothing to strive for. helicopters? also taken out. cars? they're all boring as the "fun" ones were also taken out. the game got boring quickly.

i just hope some developer out there is is willing and has the funds to make this a stand-alone game... it needs its own engine and a skilled developer team.

Killzone is only available on console and for that reason alone it doesn't even come close.

LoL for me. Both games are pretty much the same and LoL is pretty competitive near the top of the ladder.

HoN for me doesn't have any issues besides that its not free, but I just found myself never playing it after a while.

Even if only 10% of them were lost sales, thats still $100M in lost sales that publishers will definitely chase. Lets low-ball it here, even if we assume the downloads only add up to $500M and only 10% were lost sales, you really think publishers won't try to gain some of that $50M in sales?

I believe some games are hurt more than others. With Black Ops, I would only say 5-10% of the downloads were lost sales because most people want the game for its multiplayer which is not available from pirate copies. However, games that are purely single-player such as Fallout, Mass Effect, or Dragon Age would probably lose well over 50,60,70, maybe 80% of their sales to downloads simply because the downloader can get the very same product and content as the paid consumer.

Lets face the facts. It's the people who forced publishers to take extra measurements to ensure people buy their products. From connecting online for a single player game to passkeys.. they are trying to find a way to get some of those lost sales back.

Do you have any proof to back up your claim that piracy is costing the game industry billions of dollars a year in lost sales? Keep in mind that video games are more profitable now then at any point in their history.reason58

Information frome ONE site. These are the top 11 games with their total downloads. Keep in mind this is a SMALL site, there are much larger sites out there.To give you an idea how small this website is compared to a larger one. The larger website has12,889 downloads for Fallout:NV. Thats an estimate of $773,340 on one game alone. However, the larger site was much harder to derive this information. So I used the small site since it was much easier to extract the data. Keep in mind that some of these games are older than one year, but its impossible to tell when they were downloaded. I also didn't feel like searching for each individual game that was released within the past 12 months. But you should get an idea.

1.Fallout 3-7,722

2.COD:MW2-6,947

3.Dragon Age-6,945

4.COD:WAW-5,714

5.ME2-5,480

6.Sims3-5,361

7.Crysis-5,326

8.Batman Arkahm Asylum-5,275

9.Resident Evil 5-4,917

10.AC2-4,774

11.COD:BO-4,680

This is 63,141 downloads and an estimate of $3,788,460. Thats $3.7M on just the top 11 games from a very very small private site. If you want to compare to a larger site, COD:BO alone has74,533 downloads ($4,471,980). So between the two sites, Activision lost $4,752,780 on Black Ops. If you were a publisher, you would go to extreme measurements to try and get some of that money considering you're losing a lot of money per year.

If anyone is interested, Lego Star Wars II: Original Trilogy is the most downloaded game of all-time on the largest site with386,225 downloads ($23,173,500).

Keep in mind that there are dozens of private sites that all track their own download statistics and their downloads are unique to themselves. Also, there are a lot of public sites but they do not have good statistics when it comes to downloads. Basically, piracy is definitely taking billions away from the gaming industry.

edit: dont know why my text turned blue :)

Its a suit against their attempts to monopolized football video games.

The law suit will claim that when 2K5 was out. EA lowered the price to match 2K. The following year, with no competition and the release of next-gen consoles EA raised the prices of Madden across all platforms.

This will not be an easy case for the plantiffs to win. However, if they do, since it is a ****action, rewards will go to everyone who has bought a EA football game since 2005. So this basically turns into The Gamers v. EA

Normally EA gets sued a couple times a year, and every time it normally gets dismissed or EA just settles. This one was a little interesting considering a judge certified this into a class-action lawsuit. I highly doubt EA will be able to settle/silence with the millions of people who bought any football title from 2005 to present.

I hope EA loses... a lot.
