Once again another prime example of Kotick being a huge Dbag and trying to milk his consumers for all their money. I own almost all of Blizzards games and many of them came with what he is now planning to charge double to triple the going price for a movie ticket.
business assholes like kotick are ruining gaming. the gaming industry is becoming more and more like the movie industry... the big name studios produce hollywood crap while the indie studio are the ones producing movies worth watching. i find myself playing more indie games (and enjoying them more) now than big name dev games
[citation][nom]theholylancer[/nom]in short, feed me money for nothingwe just need swtor to knock wow out of the top and then SCII ignored by the pro leagues to knock blizzard down a little so they'd appreciate their customers.look at steam's meet the stuff, they are HQ and while not exactly a story, I can see if valve wanted to be greedy to charge for them by adding and reusing scenes to it and make it a "movie"[/citation]
It's not Blizzard. Star Craft 2 is a fantastic game. It's just that Bobby Kotick is a nut.
lol $20? I think it might sell if it was $2-$3 but $20 for something you probably already paid $50 for? Laughable. I'm sure there's folks right now writing scripts to just play the videos back to back outside of the game.
Oh you big babies, might as well invoke socialism to make you all happy right? Sounds like to me they would have to make these more complete full feature films where the clips are really put together to tell the whole story.
Plus why are you crying about it anyway? If you don't like it then don't buy it. That's the beauty of capitalism, you as a consumer have a choice. I love the comments about greed, if people buy the product then Blizzard is obviously is making a product consumers want.
So if you start a company and sell a product, is that greed? What if said product becomes a huge success and takes you from rags to riches? Is that greed? Oh your right I should only make middle class income then give the rest to the poor that didn't work hard to make it in this world. Get over it, just because you failed to get rich doesn't mean you have to be jealous at others who worked hard to obtain it.
and when they don't sell well... what they don't include the cutscenes and make us buy a seprate dvd and tell us when to press play.. offring an integration program to conveniently load the clips for another 10 bucks without the need to press play? ...
This is ridiculous. If this happens, they are going to hold back content for it to be exclusive to the movie and to sell more movies. I happen to like watching the story unfold and that's a big part of the enjoyment of a campaign mode.
This is like micro-transactions where things that used to be free are now being used to nickle and dime us. I refuse support the subscription pay model for video games and I will refuse to support any games that follow this model.
Well, would these cutscenes actually add up to a decent movie? Without holes in the story? If so, I'd see it. I know nothing of the SC franchise, and do not plan on playing the games. But $20-30 typically gets me two tickets, popcorn and drinks at a theater. Let's see how a movie critic reviews this ...
