This is something that I think about somewhat frequently, personally I don't think it's a bad thing or anything it just means that people can get their hands on video games more easily. I think the value going down in video games is pretty funny though considering the initial value of games has skyrocketed but the longevity of that price always drops (sometimes dramatically and instantly. E.G. Fallout 76)

I'ts crazy how fast it decreased with fallout 76.

@acharlie1377 I can see some vita games being fairly valuable as time goes on. But you are right about neogeo games. They are thousands of dollars each its nuts.

(sorry about the lack of grammar I'm very dyslexic)

I have always been a bit of a collector of videogames. I have a nice collection of Gamecube games that can reach almost hundreds of dollars through the years.

However with the current online digital stores and publishers opting to include download codes in boxes instead of a physical disc I feel like modern games will never really have value apart from sentimental.

Each year my copy of skies of skies of Arcadia will increase in value as the number of copies gradually are snapped up by collectors. But my copy of read dead redemption 2 for example will most likely never increase in value. (unless the digital stores are shutoff)

I'm not really too bothered about the "value" of my games. I collect what i love to play.

I just wanted to ask you guys if you collect games how you felt about this.

I really prefer watching them talk over the press conferences. What I miss from the early years is the rickety late night shows from some dude's weird house, but Waypoint's giving me that fix now.

do you have a link?

Every year when E3 starts I always go back to Giantbomb's archives and look at all the coverage that the guys used to pump out and I got to say i really miss it. They were on the floor interviewing each other about what they saw and we got to see some great interactions between the guys. I'll post a video to one of my favourites in case you haven't seen how they used to cover E3

I love this style of content and really miss it. Just wanted to ask if you guys felt the same.

Both Square Enix and Capcom doesn't seem to have the slightest clue on how to market or probably budget their games these days, so handing the keys over to someone who is at least A BIT more capable seems like a sad but obvious choice.

This

it makes me quite sad

Street fighter has always been a multi platform game. I'm just not convinced this is the direction capcom should be heading. But if cash is tight then i understand the deal.

I don't have to like it however.

The question is which would you like less, SFV as a Sony/PC exclusive in 2016, or SFV maybe coming out in 2022 after Capcom has dissolved and the IP has been purchased by Ubisoft.

As bad as things seem to be for them i highly doubt street fighter would ever get sold.

@corevi: They are paying development costs? So its not a timed exclusive. Its legit a sony exclusive now?
