No community is fan boy free.

Also welcome to Giant bomb, it's a videogame, about websites!

WTF? Hell no this isn't fanboy free. Because I love all the things and fuck everything else.

Wait. There's going to be an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom? What makes this any different than the first one? And why are people falling for this pre-order crap?

I should attend these events. Not because of the crappy booth chics, but because I miss LAN parties.

We can't tell for ourselves if the single player is like Black Ops, but the article doesn't mention a thing about the multiplayer. And from what I can tell from what people are saying, the multiplayer is no where near Black Ops or any Call of Duty game.

The article is three pages long and it looks like you've only read the first.

Woops. I thought the OP posted the whole article in that quote.

Good. Give your money to DICE, not gamestop. Paying them's not going to make games better

Exactly this.

But they already got their money. *Sigh*... I'm lost. What exactly are we arguing about?

I wouldn't worry about it. People are mad because Gamestop made over $3 billion one year. I mean everyone has to realize that not everyone can afford a new game. They look for the cheap way possible like I do. Go onto Craigslist and you'll see people selling all kinds of new games anywhere between $40-50. I'm dead serious. I like my games as cheap as possible.

What I don't like is the fact that Gamestop/whoever don't deserve to make £30/$50 whatever on a game that they had no part in. And if you do buy the game preowned and have to pay a tenner to EA/Dice, what of it? If you play multiplayer you are using their resources to do so, and they need money to keep those services going, especially if they provide servers for players.

And you may like to pay less money for videogames, whatever, just wait 'til they are in the sale.

I have no problem with games being sold as a non-transferable service if that's what the industry wants to do and is going to be up front about it, but I don't think they get to sell as a product, take money in exchange for a copy of their game and then act like they still have some moral claim on that copy. They don't. They can own the copy or they can sell it; they can't sell it and still own it.

Exactly what happened with the case between Sony and Hotz. I was on Hotz side the whole time because I knew when I payed $600 for my PS3 that it belonged to me.

@pw2566ch: Private servers exist in PC games though, we aren't talking about PC games, the online passes are never for PC games due the fact that you can't have a used PC game. And even so, in the case of BF3, EA will store all of our character data and stats on their servers. Personally, I don't care for this anyway, and I don't really think these passes should exist; but I would sooner them exist and developers earn the money they deserve, than used game sales stay as rampant as they are and developers lose out on money they deserve.

It sounds like this is the kind of argument that will always have two sides. Either way, I will always continue to buy discounted games or used games. Whichever comes first. Unfortunately, I hate to say this, but I'm not in the service of the publishers or developers. Despite them making great games. I'm in the service of my budget. If publishers decide to go the way of strictly new games via online activation's, then they either need to offer sales and deals like Steam and other digital distributors does or I'm just going to have to stick to PC gaming.

Yeah, Gamestop does rip people off there, but blame the people falling for it. If no one doesn't like the way Gamestop does business then they shouldn't sell their games there. And what resources are we talking about? Are you talking about running servers and such? You understand that people rent servers, right? Other than that, there's plenty of companies that run servers without even asking for a return. Take a look at Valve. They built Team Fortress 2, a few years later offering it for free, and not even asking for an online pass.
