FIFA 12 video reveals Man City kit

Ahhh so this is how City plan on complying to the FFP rules! Step one: Dodgy, over inflated sponsorship deals from related parties. Step 2: Market themselves mercilessly to the rest of the world through FIFA to increase revenues legitimately.

EA Sports reveals "Ten Dollar"-like plans

jambolio

8 years ago

Ah the second hand market, as consumers we all know that it makes sense to wait for a few months and pick up some bargains. You pay full price for the priviledge of playing it at release and being part of the hype machine.

Second hand sales allow people to experiment and play the games that are initially gambles, a lower price point after all is a lower risk. These plans are seriously going to hurt start up studios and talented development teams as Retailers will carry fewer second hand games.

As an Ex-Game employee, second hand sales are a massively important part of their buisness model. The regional manager on a visit to our store in West London claimed that 75% of the region's profits came from second hand sales after all.
While certainly no fan of Retailers, I think that the plurality of choice offers the consumer a much better deal than what we seem to be moving towards, where the publishers and the platform holders decide on a seemingly abritary price that they think they can get away with charging. If they can decrease the number of ways to acquire content, it's only going to increase the amount they feel they can charge us.

Pitchford "terrified" to launch Borderlands

@Jensonjet

If you can find ME somewhere in a bargain deal or pre-owned you could do a lot worse than it. It came out on the same day as COD:WaW and Banjo Kazooie nuts and Bolts, I bought all three first thing in the morning and I had finished both ME and WAW by tea time. I ignored WaW after that but played through ME many more times, it gets better and better as you improve your skills and adapt to its way of thinking.

It's on the pre-order list already, if it is even half way as compelling as Diablo was then that spells trouble.

I Am Alive due by end of March - Ubisoft

Maybe Ubisoft have learnt the lessons of over-hyping games, particular ones that aren't thus far part of an established franchise. This is brand spanking new IP after all and akin to Assasins Creed. I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised, Peter Molyneux should learn.

Fable 2 to ship without online co-op

@The BodyBuilder.

Fully aware of the fact that this is Fable 2, but I have my doubts that it will be significantly longer than the first one. Which is kind of a problem for me seeing as I like my RPG's to be lengthy and substantial (hurr hurr).

TF2 Heavy update next Tuesday

jambolio

10 years ago

The beautiful thing is, Valve make all their games massively scaleable thus increasing the size of the market available for their products. Low End Pc's can play TF2 happily and high end PC's get the last bit of graphical shine out of the games too.
TF2 is by far the best PC online FPS at the moment and will probably go from strength to strength over the next couple of years, it even stopped me from playing counter strike.

Diablo is still probably the franchise I have sunk most time into and I think this is likely to continue to be the case, 4 years of diablo 2 on Battlenet does that to you. It could work well as an RTS, a la Company of Heroes
