With games getting larger and larger in terms of file size, and all our games heading in a digital future, are their game companies who have lobbyists trying to get data cap limits lifted?
1.) It seems odd to me that for the past few years game companies have been touting a "digital future" fully knowing that data rate limits are in place. It's actually like the worst possible time for games to go all digital. Do you guys see this being changed ever?
2.) As a person with slow internet speed (I am not giving up living in the mountains for games (Nature>Games) but I still love games. It was a shocking revelation when I purchased Shogun 2: Total War and then could NOT install the files from the disc. I had to download the game from Steam even though I had a physical copy. This really is just a side effect of the issue. It's an issue nonetheless.
3.) Do you guys know of any game companies or console manufacturers that are actively lobbying to have data caps removed? My internet has no data cap thankfully, but I see this as a real issue going forward with the new console generation and also with Steam, GOG, Origin etc. If you have any links to game companies that do have lobbyists in their corner I would love to have them.
It seems to me that a lot of gamers are going to have issues playing multiple games in a month going forward. Once this generation is in full swing and there are multiple 40GB+ games per month to be played.
What are your thoughts? Thanks, Duders!
