Dude.....STFU....

Its technology, its going to advance, so OBVIOUSLY the prices of sh*t are gonna go up.

What, in 100 years you want the price of the PS10 games to still be chillin at 50 dollars?

Microsoft has lost nearly 1 BILLION dollars with the 360, 768 million I think the figure is, and your to broke to put up a measly 10 dollar investment to keep one of the best run BENEFITS in the video game world around.

sh*t, i'd pay more then 50 dollars for a year long subscription to the X-Box Live service. They're doin us a favor by keepin it that low.

Chill on the hatin son,

Just boycott Microsoft yourself since your to damn broke to reap the benefits that microsoft gives away.

That's one sh*tty "hustle".


They're not running a charity.
The gamers are supposed to feel sorry for Microsoft and empty their pockets?

You just made my point for me, the gamers are choosing to "empty their pockets".

Regardless...

You obviously had an agenda by posting this article and highlighting all the parts where it appears that Microsoft is making a k!lling while choosing not to highlight the portions of the article that show otherwise.

That dosen't prove anything.
"And about the price of that add-ons,do you have any idea of how much time, money, and effort it takes to create all that content?"

Thats what you said.


"Games such as UbiSoft's Rainbow Six Vegas and Activision's Call of Duty 3 can cost as much as $25 million to make, but extra game levels and maps are extremely cheap to produce, by comparison. Key said they required only about 10% of a game's development staff."




"The (downloadable maps) are very profitable for us," said Tony Key, vice president of marketing for UbiSoft Entertainment SA, whose Tom Clancy-themed shooters such as Rainbow Six and GRAW 2 are among the most popular games on Xbox Live.


Your own question was answered within the article. That's why I said it's important for you to read.

You asked how much time and money goes into it, and the answer is slim for both. Large returns after. Meaning you paid a lot more than what it was actually worth, a.k.a. being hustled.

Here, let me take out another quote.


"If you're a Rainbow guy and you don't have the maps, then you can't play a match," said Key, referring to online competitions. "I doubt there will ever be a Clancy game without the Xbox Live component any more. It's now a key part of the game's DNA."


They are forcing you to buy the maps. Yes you do have a choice, either to buy the maps or hit the highway.

Like I said, and the article states. There's not much of a choice when it comes to downloadable content.

With what I said about Crackdown and Halo 2, they "force" the downloadable content on to you.

Here's a broader example for you.

Now, the Matchmaking Playlist update will cause the same kind of growing pains as last time we updated the map selection – with some playlists unavailable to folks who don’t have the new maps (the reasons why are pretty self-evident) but here’s how the new Matchmaking playlists will break down when they go live next week:


· Rumble Pit – Unranked – FFA – New Maps Required!
· Double Team – Ranked – 2v2 Teams
· Team Slayer – Ranked – 3 / 4 vs. 3 /4 - New Maps Required!
· Team Skirmish – Ranked – 3 /4 vs. 3 /4 – New Maps Required!
· Team Training – Unranked – 3 /4 vs. 3 /4
· Team Snipers – Ranked – 3 / 4 vs. 3 / 4 – New Maps Required!
· Team Hardcore – Ranked – 3 /4 vs. 3 /4
· Team SWAT – Unranked – 3 /4 vs. 3 /4 – New Maps Required!
· Big Team Battle – Unranked – 5 / 6 vs. 5 /6
Microsoft's strategy is to allow gamers pay $50-$60 dollars for a game which allows you to play the game with all of its features for that retail price. Later on, they begin to cut out or subliminaly add features to the game, giving you the "Choice" to either pay for those features or play an incomplete game which was complete when you first purchased it.

Yes, and it's free. This isn't even about the PS3 though.

Epic didn't want to charge the new downloadable content, but Microsoft made them. The article even states that.

Jesus christ, Who fu*king cares? Dont buy the extra content then. Seems like you need to get out of the house or something. Go live.

People like you crack me up.

I'm not even out trying to promote purchase of a PS3, but Sony is losing just as much or even twice as much as Microsoft with their console and they clearly stated their service is free.

I know people never want to admit to being hustled.

**looks at his sig....**

If you want to have games that last and won't break on you, invest in a Wii or a Playstation 3.



I'm much happier paying for downloading extra content than I am sitting with the $500 paperweight of a PS3 that I have......a game console with no games? now THATS hustling.

Lol...
Microsoft and Sony both lose money with every console they sell,
So please tell me how we are "overpaying" for the systems?

God damn,
If you cant afford it, just realize that your a broke a.ss dude,
And let the real men who are doing something with there lives step up and enjoy the luxory that is being provided to us.

Luda,
You must REALLY be hurtin for some money to go on this big of a rant because you lost 130 dollars. Get a warranty for your system next time. Mine broke, I brought it to Best Buy and got a new one free of charge with no hastle. N i'ma do that like 3 or 4 more times before the warranty runs out, reguardless of whether or not the X-Box is in fact broken, why not grab a new one free of charge?
