I was off the site for a few days and I feel out of the loop. What is the 9/9 announcement mentioned din this weeks mailbag?
That's the day I will finally get laid.
" @lizcav said:Oh you know, the usual... Top hat, bow tie, feeze..." @mrfizzy said:Any pre-order bonuses? "" @Hailinel said:Woot! "" It's the date Whiskey Media will announce that they've bought Sega and will bring back the Dreamcast. "hot tip: Lincoln Force CONFIRMED as a launch title. "
While I wish it was the grand opening of a Giant Bomb store with shirts and what not, (YES I KNOW ABOUT THE OSCAR MIKE INCIDENT) it's probably a sub service. However, I don't think it'll JUST be a pro account thing if it didn't off some really cool stuff. If it was something like $5/month and unlocked some really cool features but free users still get the current GB experience, that'd be great. I bet they've got some very interesting stuff in store for those willing to pay. I sure want to give something back to the Bomb Squad.
To be fair, that guy was bein' kind of a dick.
" There was a thread about this yesterday, it was locked at the OP's request but it was pretty much concluded that nobody knows. I think it's most likely going to be about the subscription service. "
I don't know what they could offer in a subscription service. It's be like the PSN+, I mean all the best stuff is already free and I think they'd have to firewall some stuff to make it worth subscribing. Unless Jeff comes to your house once a month or so to cut your lawn or something what would make a subscription worth subscribing to?
" I doubt it would be subscription models what else can the site offer? There's very few adds and the videos are high quality. What could they charge for that would be worth it? "It's not really about it being worth it, for a lot of people. It's about supporting the site and Whiskey Media in general, as some of us just want a chance to give back the guys who do so much for no cost to us (I mean, technically we absorb ads, but that doesn't happen too often).
