Sadly I got the same feeling.blur said:Watching that video from Simucon 2004 (?) I got the very real feeling that Simu wants to pull money from all sorts of areas... I expect a full price box, tiered monthly pricing and full price expansion packs. I get the feeling that no one will ride for free.

Some people say "I could charge extra for this, but wont.. I still make money" others say "If people will pay, I will charge, and If I can charge extra I will. Money is my only friend!"
Yes, but the point I think Dyngo is making is that some companies aren't as $$$-driven as others. That's just fact, you know? Some companies take a tidy profit and keep costs down because they know what it's like to be passionate fans of something, themselves. Other companies are run by board members who have never played a computer game in their life and just want to farm profits.Sylvado said:The purpose of a business is to make money. As long as you are honest in your dealings there is nothing wrong with charging whatever you think you can get. Customers control the market by what they are willing to pay.
Sadly, you are too close to the reality. The "dictatorship of the majority" force the minority to live after their conditions...

Zink said:Yes they're selling me, but that doesn't matter. People should join because they hear about it from a freind not because a huge corperation is spending millions of dollars to have themself advertised on every channel possible. It brings in millions of people, many of which are not the kinds of people who make a gaming experience goo. Sure that makes money for the company so they can, in turn, spend it on enhacing the game but the DON'T enhance the game. That means that we have to play with a bunch of retards in WoW and we don't get anything in return.[/whiney]
*looks up* OMG did I do that? Oh....
