Value my ass, two maps are coming out for killzone 3 for 5 bucks! and Battlefield maps are usually Free!

By battlefield you mean recycled maps for new game modes? thats only if you buy the stupid online code, or buy the  game new.. Its not different than COD in my eyes.

Why would you argue in favor of the capitalists as compared to the lowly consumers. You sound like a guy who wants to pay $15 for a gallon of gas.?.

...seriously?

I'm for Activision selling a stupid map pack for whatever they want. $15 is an easily affordable luxary. Far more affordable than a tank of gas.

But maybe you were being sarcastic. I mean who would compare gaming crap and gas?

Easy now, remember no human needs gas to live so it is technoly in the same catagory as video games because we need neither for survival. And of course I was beiin some what sarcastic.

I think people do not want other companies to follow in Activision's footsteps and raise prices. Actiision makes themselves look arrogant by charging more than any other in the industry, I guess it is a luxary hen your sitting on top of the pile. Peace,bedtime.

Granted humans don't need gas per se. But we do rely on gas for transportation and it plays a vital role in our daily lives. Hypothetically, if all the gas disappeared you could imagine all the problems that would create. So no, I don't put gas and video games in the same category.

I don't care if other companies follow Activision's DLC foot steps because they still have to create a game that's great right out the box. If they don't you can expect sales to dwindle.

Activision looks arrogant? Don't you think they have the success to back up that arrogance? Those map packs sell extremely well.

That's cool about the gas thing as it is a big discussion of it's own.Just wanted a dramatic counter example. :p

I agree the are the top dogs so they can do what they want, I am saying power often creates arrogance. In this situation, it is by pricing your stuff higher than others. I really do not care as I shamefully bought the map pack, but the factthat Activision's actions at least convey arrogance.

And if more people cared about those games prices would go up.


So obviously, GTAIV and RED DEAD REDEMPTION (games that sold very well) have BOGT and Undead Nightmare, two full campaings for 10$!. Still cheaper. That a BS post.

The GTAIV expansions were $20 bucks each when they launched.

Eitherway, GTAIV and RDR don't sell DLC nearly as well as CoD games. And CoD games are released annually so they're selling shit tons of DLC every year.

Well these aren't free, get over it.

PC gaming is struggling because they want everything free or dirt cheap.


Blizzard and Valve called. They called you ignorant and uninformed. Minecraft just sent you a postcard, the guy was too busy to call.

Blizzard and Valve are some of few big budget developers that can rely on PC.

Valve though does get support from consoles. I wouldn't be surprised if Left 4 Dead has been more profitable on the 360.

There were rumors about Diablo III coming to consoles. I don't think Diablo 3 will sell as well as 2. Unless Diablo 3 has really great online play. Basically online play is the only thing that can save a PC game. Otherwise people will just steal it.

Maybe because they are the only ones who actually put in a good effort into making a good PC game? Also, they completely and utterly disprove your entire point.

Funny enough, Half-Life 2 is a single-player only game, made by Valve, who has a shitton of money. Same with Portal. Or Half-Life 1 before that.

I was was wrong on one thing in my last statement. You aren't ignorant and uninformed, because I had just informed you and provided you with information that completely defeats your argument. Ignorant/uninformed would then realize they are wrong. You are in a whole different league.

Your first statement... no your whole post is ridiculous.

Half-Life 1, 2, and Portal are old. Lets see how future games perform. Oh wait, we can't because Valve doesn't release their numbers. And why would they? It would show the decline in sales which is why their games launch on consoles now.

Anyway, nothing more to discuss. Good day.

The first post is very much valid. Go around any PC forum and you will notice that Valve and Blizzard (along with relic and the guys from Total War) are the only ones that are even bothering to make a PC game worth playing. It's ridiculous that you don't realize that. Last I checked both Valve and Blizzard were well off, so we don't even need to see their numbers.

Wait wait, did you just imply that HL2 and Portal are somehow old just because they are what? 3 and 6 years ago? I hate to break it to you, but up until about a year ago you wouldn't even be able to push off Starcraft as old. You try your best to justify your wrong point of view. It's kind of funny. I wonder how far I can push it for the lulz.

How do you justify Minecraft's success in your head? I eagerly await your reply.

When consoles have a hit... its no big deal. It happens every other week.

When PC gets a hit, even though its a budget title, its some how proof that industry isn't struggling.

What can I say?
