Just shows how dumb Gamers as consumers really are.


If you don't like it.
Don't buy it.

That's all Publishers respond too... the bottom line.

It's a shallow arcade blaster game caked in candy coated visuals and the Star Wars brand.

I have not bought a game from EA since Titanfall... even then it wasn't for full price because EA Games fixes the price by region, so if you're in Mexico (or using a VPN to trick the EA Store), the game is a lot cheaper. 650 Peso... $35 USD.

I don't remember the last game from UbiSoft, Activision or Bethesda I consciously bought. Diablo III is the only Blizzard game I've paid (and played) for since Warcraft II.

I remember BF:BC2 being the last real game I enjoyed from EA Games... right before they yanked all their stuff off Steam to start Origin. I also remember PC games being $49.99 and how EA Games decided to fix a flat price for all their games... since console games were $59.99, now all PC Games would be too... then 69.99, then 69.99 with an seasons pass. Then 79.99 with a seasons pass. Now 89.99 with Microtransactions Loot Crates and a seasons pass.


Raising the price wouldn't be a problem, if we were getting more "game" to go along with the experience... but we're not. We're getting less and less of a game. Battlefront 2 has a campaign of 12 missions and maybe 4-6 hours of gameplay. Call of Duty: WW2 is over 100GB installed for a game that only lasts 6.5 hours. That includes all the down time watching scripted sequences and real-time events.

that's not really fair since SP is an afterthought for those types of games now. people buy them to kill people online with fabulous graphics. ss: tribes SP content was about 5 minutes depending on how long it took you to figure out jump jetting.

the AAA gaming industry is pretty trash tier these days. but there is a whole lot of indie stuff out there though, so yeah, stop buying AAA games and they'll have to learn how to actually make them again.

!00% this. Sad that people don't have any self control. Imagine how much money these publishers would lose if the average player simply waited a week to judge the game on it's merits rather than hype.

also, this is going on over at reddit:

This is just a way to stop people pirating the game I guess. Useless as a standalone game, you need to go online to buy **** to make it worthwhile.

although I'm sure there is a cracked version with all the DLC/loot available somewhere.

no just having multiplayer on company hosted servers automatically prevents piracy which most games do these days.

and nothing stops single player piracy.

I cant wait till they get to the stage of offering you the option to trade your new item for two other loot crates.

Then the gambling will really kick in.

I haven't bought an EA game since Mass Effect 2. Partially because they pulled all their games from Steam but also because **** EA.
