Why no choice of 499 USD console; 50 to 60 USD game ?
Give me hot or give me cold, don't give me warm =p
I see the poll is missing the option for "The idea Sony/MS make $20 from 3rd party games is BS, and the idea 3rd parties would pass on such savings to consumers is next level BS".
I guess you missed the part where the platform holder would determine/force the price difference due to no royalty.
Why not just leave it the way it is now?
That is an option you have on the pool. Basically asking if you would prefer paying more for the HW and less for the SW.
Nah, give me a cheaper console and keep game prices the way they are now. I’d take that option for a Nintendo console, because their games hold their value insanely long. MicroSony though, a month or two after launch you can find their games for $30-40. And the same for all third party games. It just isn’t a big enough deal imho to save money on games.
Especially when the publishers aren’t going to just charge less anyway. You think EA or Ubisoft or Activision are suddenly going to charge $40 just because MicroSony doesn’t want a cut? They’ll charge $60 because we’re used to paying $60.
Seems like you also missed the enforcement. And also that it isn't saying if it really is feasible or not, but if you would like it and how do you think it would affect sales.
