As stated, we're NOT against DICE, we are against the removal of the ability to purchase through steam when it was available before. I don't get all the fighting.
This is what I dont get.
Its not like console games where a metal gear Nintendo exclusive suddenly becomes a Playstation exclusive, suddenly becomes early DLC for 360.
The platform hasn't changed at all.
Sure you can want as much as your heart can want, but since when has that kind of want successfully overturned a business who are trying to create a new avenue of profit?
I want GT5 to be on 360 so I can have Forza and GT5 on one system and not have to buy a seperate wheel for the PS3 but so what?
I dont get where people think that they are owed more than the game itself?
What incentive do you give EA to halt their plans for pushing and expanding on their download service in terms of social interaction with arguably their biggest team oriented (social) game of this century?
Its like having a rack that only holds Jewel CD/DVD cases, hearing that BF3 will only be coming in DVD sized cases and deciding not to buy the game (you KNOW you want), simply because you cant store the BF3 case in your rack with all the other jewel cases.
The game experience is the same regardless of whether you take it from your rack or pick it up from wherever you put the DVD sized case, but not being able take it out of a jewel case is going to stop you buying the game you've been anticipating?
If you were truly interested in the game in the first place, I literally just don't understand how this could be "the" deal breaker.
Not trying to put people down as much as I'm saying:
A- Sense of entitlement is too much to the point where a (relatively) tiny group of people think EA would turn down profits/ability to get loads of potential customers accessing their new service, to suit their arguably trivial niggles.
B- Not wanting to buy a game you are interested in playing because the program you have to use to launch it isn't "right" is just strange imo.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 8/8/11 at 5:09pm
