They will sit there and wonder, "why didn't they just buy it from our digital service?" and likely never be able to figure it out.
Agreed. Completely. They're not really giving us much of a choice on that matter. Choices have literally been ELIMINATED from me. If D2D didn't exist, I literally would be tearing my hair out because of this debacle~ because I would NOT buy it. I could not~!
There's like a lot of people here who are like "You're going to buy it anyway~" and yeah, it's true, a lot of people aren't like me. However, fortunately or unfortunately as it may be, I am who I am.
If D2D wasn't an option, I would literally be forced to NOT buy a game I want out of politics! It wouldn't be an artistic choice, a money issue~ I'd have NO beef with Dice, but for the first time in my LIFE as a video gamer a PUBLISHER is trying to dictate how I spend my money, and this is somehow a trivial concern to people.
