When will you start to think EA?

EA really thinks that there are so many stupid people?
I mean cmon, think EA think.


EA considering charging for 'very long game demos' - Analyst


(Now imagine me giving a facepalm)


EA would release what he called "a very long game demo, along the lines of 2009's Battlefield 1943" through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network for $10 to $15.


Tell me what's the point of buying a demo? It doesn't matter how long it is, it's still a demo. And why would you want to buy a fucking demo? Demos are made so you would consider buying the game, so why would you buy a demo so you could consider buying the game? It makes no sense. Well maybe if you're a big fanboy...


"A full-blown packaged game would follow shortly after the release of the PDLC, bearing a full retail price," Pachter said.


Hey Pachter, now tell me, how doesn't THAT sound retarded? Who can't fucking wait some time, to get the full game, and if you can't, download the short and free Demo. If you know you're going to buy this game, why would you buy a fucking demo, that costs 1/4 of the game?
EA, come up with some good marketing ideas for once. A five-year-old could do a better job than you.
Also, if you buy a CD, you can sell it to someone, or give it to your fiends, or just break it and be satisfied. But that "very long demo" is worth nothing! You can't give it to your friends, you can't complete the game or use all the features and you can't sell it, and if you could, none would buy it, because they could just buy the full game by that time.
Conclusions:
WAIT, download a free demo, buy a full game, fuck EA.

That is bullshit Sony!

Someone told me today, that GTA IV Episodes from Liberty city have been delayed till April for both PC and PS3.
So I thought that there was a critical bug found in both versions..but I was wrong.
I went to gamestop.com and found some news about this..and the title..the title makes me mad.
Rockstar Games says last-minute request by Sony Europe has pushed Grand Theft Auto IV expansions' non-360 release to April 13

last-minute request by Sony.. WHAT THE FUCK? what does PC has to do with PS3? And why the fuck would Rockstar agree to do that FOR BOTH SYSTEMS.

So here's more info about that:

For Grand Theft Auto IV fans, March was set to go out like a lion with the release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. Previously exclusive to the Xbox 360, the two add-ons to the top-rated game-




Rockstar gave the following explanation: "Due to a last minute game submission request from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to edit some of the in-game Liberty City radio station, television, and internet content, we are forced to delay the worldwide release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for both PlayStation 3 and PC for an extra two weeks."

I'll say it again, what the fuck PC has to do with Sony?
Did Microsoft ask you to do the same for PC? No!
We, PC gamers, always get screwed in this situation.
But I have to say, Rockstar's marketing works, but it's still - bullshit.

Also the change wasn't requested by Sony Computer Entertainment America, so America gets screwed even more.

Fail of the year [in gaming industry]

God, when I first played CoD MW2, I thought it was fantastic, then I played multi-player and spec-ops - "OMG". Though I have to say that I didn't like CoD MW (aka CoD 4) multi-player mode, so this was truly the game of the year for me, I had respect for Activision and Infinity Ward (though I still didn't like the crappy match-making).
Near the release of BF: BC2 I didn't understand what was all the fuss about, I mean, I didn't like BF2, so I thought that I wouldn't like this either...and I was wrong. The game is great..as far as I could enjoy it.. but I can't say much about it because of my crappy Videocard.
What Activision and Infinity Ward (if it still exists) are doing is just stupid. I mean I don't get it, your marketing is bullshit. I still don't get why the fuck you can't lower prices for CoD 4, it's an old game now, so it must be cheaper by now, but no it isn't. But thats not the fail of the year. Let me quote gametrailers for it.
So up to this point all we knew about the new Modern Warfare 2 Map Pack was, well…the maps. We knew that the pack includes 2 reworked classic COD4 maps, Crash and Overgrown, along with the 3 new maps Bailout, Storm and Salvage. What we didn’t know was the price…and now that we know most of us probably wish we didn’t.

So ok, we get 5 maps, that's nothing unusual.
The voice of MW2, Robert Bowling, recently made a quick stop onto Major Nelson’s podcast to share some information about the Stimulus Map Pack which is coming to the Xbox 360 on March 30th. Apart from telling us what we already knew he finally dropped the officially price point of 1200 Microsoft Points…or $15 for those of you without a MP/Real Money converter. So, let’s see…that’s 25% of the entire game price and more/equal to the price of some XBL/PSN games.

What? 15$ for 5 maps? Are you fucking kidding me? Do you think it's raining money outside? Well maybe for you but cmon, you can't be serious. So wait, we have to pay for 2 converted maps, that's probably not even so hard to do, and 3 new maps.. So mainly you want us to pay 15$ for 3 maps you made? Do you know how much Borderlands DLCs cost? 10$, and they include new missions, new areas, new storyline, new modes and other cool shit. And you fucking want 15$ for 3 new maps? I don't have to say that I won't buy it. And here comes the best part. You know your closest competitors? Well they just fucked you in the arse, if you didn't feel it yet.
Interesting.

Indeed.
So there you have it, the Mapathy battlefield has been set. In one corner you have MW2 with its 5 maps for $15 and in the other corner you have BC2 with 2 maps for $0 (and an obvious love for showcasing this fact). Now, the ultimate question isn’t which one you’ll choose (who WOULDN’T download the free one?), but rather if MW2 players will fork over a relatively large amount of money to pick up the Stimulus Map Pack. Is it worth it? Is it not? Is this the gamer’s chance to speak with their wallets or a fairly priced bit of DLC that will truly enhance the core experience???

So basically I can pay nothing for something I know that has been hardly worked on, or play 15$ for a piece of shit 3 new maps and 2 converted. Hmm.. what to do, what to do.. Hell here's my 15$, coz  I'M RICH, BITCH!

When even GameTrailers.com are talking this bad about you, you have to know that shit has gone extremely wrong.

No but seriously, I want to see the idiot (and I'm sure that there will be many) who actually buys that mappack. I'm with Dice. Just got to get my PC fixed up.

Btw.. soon we will see MoH, so hopefully it will replace MW, and be much better at it. It uses the same game engine as BF: BC2 , so physically it will be good.
