Great comments, great nominations! Let's get into the Top 5!

Insomniac Twitter Response to Resistance 3 Boycotters

Comment by Icepick. Nominated by danielrbischoff.

It makes sense from a business standpoint. With how garbage the economy is, many gamers are preferring to forgo getting brand new titles and wait for a second hand copy. When a customer purchases a game second hand, the developers and publishers get 0% of that money, but are still expected to refine multiplayer with updates and adjustments, bug fixes, and what not.

Paying a online fee, for use of multiplayer on a second hand game, as unfortunate as it is for gamers is a direct result of gaming companies no longer getting the same value out of their products, and people expecting more and more quality stuffed into a game. Multi-million dollar, year+ long development cycles, and than 2 months after release you get an influx of people who have never paid that company a cent utilizing the same game features others paid $60 for.

It might be possible they're using it to help revenue, and I'm all for game companies staying in business (really, reflect on who's closed up shop in the last 19 years, kind of a sad list) And as long as it's kept sensible, I figure when you're buying used, you're purchasing it for what, 25-30 bucks, a $5 tip to the people who built and published the game is not "evil", and considering how this affects only multi-player, quit acting like the games gimped.

That being said, it raises the quality requirement for multiplayer, a company that tries this and delivers a DNF style multi-player will be **** out and passed by

"Video games are not baseball cards..." That explains why they don't sound right when I put them in my bike's spokes.



Comment by TurinAlexander. Nominated by tinymhg.

Hmm, what the is the point of spending a half million dollars on games if you're never going to play them? It can't be for future profits, most of those would only be worth a couple dollars on today's market. A few rare titles might be worth some money, but there's no way he's ever going to make his money back. Just seems silly.
