Some of these sales have allowed me to take a chance on a game I otherwise might not have played. I bought Just Cause 2 and Jamestown for 5 bucks each and played both extensively. I also bought Sanctum for the same price and decided I was done after two levels. I was happy having purchased all three games, even though I didn't like one of them.
For me, price drops affect how likely I am to take a chance on a game that I'm interested in, but not quite sold on. I currently have 30 games on my wishlist, so I can keep an eye on them. I still buy games at the 60 dollar price point, but I have to be sure that I'll really like the game to invest that much in it.
I'm still mulling around a few of the points he made. My gut says that while some of the people who buy a game on impulse won't play it, all of the people who don't buy the game won't play it. I also think that there's a flaw in never lowering the price of the game. All items depreciate in value, even digital ones. Movies, music, shows, and the like all eventually become at least a little cheaper down the line because the distributors realize that the original price is no longer one that the market will bear. I also have trouble with the idea that the industry is being hurt by the sales. I understand the desire for your game to be played and enjoyed, but I also see the desire to have your work financially compensated. Video games are art, like movies, but also like movies, they are a business, with a goal of making money. Also, I understand that the game on his site had higher baseline sales than the one on Steam, but which one generated more total revenue? Maybe I missed it when I read the article.
I think that there are flaws in his reasoning, but only time will tell.
I slept terribly last night, and every time I woke up, "Power" would be stuck in my head. I've been kind of messed up for the past day. There have been people who've died that I was personally acquainted with that didn't have this much of an effect on me.
I just noticed the CBS watermark on all of the videos. Something about that makes them even funnier.
I've been laptop gaming for a few years now. The original system you posted is definitely viable, and will be at least until the new consoles come out. It's much better than mine, and I can still run all the games currently coming out on high settings.
Yep, both of these games are sitting on my hard drive right now.
And yet we can't play them yet :(
This sums it up better than I ever could: http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/05/09 I did have shit to do this weekend, so it was probably for the best in my case.
