This so ****ing much. I've been telling my friends for years that games aren't being made with customers in mind, they're mad for sucking as much money out of you until you're fed up, and they just blow me off. Just goes to show how some people don't mind the leeches stuck to their backs and assure everyone else they're supposed to be there.Steve said:
I think the problem with today's game developers is they are not creating a product that people are going to become a fan of. They are simply creating a sloppy game to generate some revenue by sucking in as many died hard gamers as they can. If I have purchased a lot of the games that we used for testing here at TechSpot for my own personal use I think I would have demand by money back.
The Angry Birds series and other quality games are well worth their weight in gold and people do become fans of these games. They provide endless hours of entertainment and because people enjoy them so much they can easily justify purchasing them.
So the company who's in the business of selling ads doesn't mind if people 'pirate' the software that they use to distribute ads? And if they steal the $.99 one, how much does that cost them? How much goes to the app store and the carrier?kezgao said:
There are two versions, a FREE version where you run into advertisements and a paid version that's ad-free.
You know those ads are there for a reason right?milwaukeemike said:
$.99 for Angry birds? what? It's free on my phone. Just checked again now. FREE. In big capital letters. Does Apple make you pay? I have an android phone.
So.... I don't get it. What the heck are you guys talking about.
Actually a few years back Microsoft even said that " if you are going to pirate software, we prefer you pirate ours" ...because that guy got it as well.Guest said:
IF they are to stop all piracy then they will find themselves in more trouble than they are think they are now.Lets say Microsoft stops all piracy of its Windows operating system then in no time Linux will take its place. So its favorable for microsoft to keep things as it is and they really do keep the things they are.
For music and movie industry, lets say if they stop piracy in online world then this will give tremendous increase in real world piracy. Piracy would be a good business and extremely profitable.In terms of quality users may get very bad quality of music and movie content.If they stop all forms of piracy then I assume most people will not be able to buy enough. then there is the problem of the copying of these digital contents as anyone with a comp can copy it.It is getting too much complicated. then there is radios both terrestrial and internet that can be alternative to music.
