New big titles are coming out at up to $70 per game which is a lot for the average player. A new DVD is less than half that.I'd buy more new games if the price was lower instead of waiting for sales. Why not drop the price and get more sales, make it hard to copy a disc and forget the DRM? Am I a simpleton?
Sadly DRM on games is going to be a big part. For movies it tends to be the sec coding on the blu ray or dvd that stops the copying of them. But of course with both drm n the sec code on movies these get broken/cracked/reverse engineered. Personally when I was in my teens a game cost me £30 tops on PC and roughly the same on console which was N64 at that time. Expansions/addons were about £20. So seeing a game going at £50 or £60 yeah its a jump but over 15 years to me that is not much at all.
In regards to having it removed. I can understand the frustrations and the points that users make in that its a waste because of what I previously said. We just going to have to eat our cookie, sit down, strap our selves in and ride the roller coaster.
Because of the heinous structure of typical contracts in the music industry, performers are only profiting by live concerts and rarely get anything from sales of records or other media. The MPAA has lobbied hard to make piracy in third world corrupt countries a life sentence offense. Pirating even the music from a commercial in Australia, carries a 20 year prison term. All because of lobbying by the MPAA in that country. Compare that to stealing the same CD at Wallmart in the US.
In the US there is a charge for every blank media sold. The justification passed was that there is no other reason to have blank media than to copy music to it. They got that passed, and it was supposed to compensate them for the supposed piracy that was going to happen. They get the millions every year from that, but they still come up with schemes to go after anyone they can to get even more money. It has become an ego issue for them anymore.
I'm not saying they can't do what they can to stop it, but bludgeoning the public in my opinion is worse than any piracy they ever feigned to have. They have no sympathy for the public, to even try to use nonintrusive methods, I have lost most all sympathy for them.
In my opinion at the end of the day the price or cost of a game is getting well out of hand,also you pay $60 for a game you load and run it for one hour and find you don't like the game (the reasons are endless) you cannot resell the game like you could a few years back the money is on a one way street that is business for you.
