Activision kept rehashing Guitar Hero into a Rock Band clone often. They only stopped doing it once they determined sale were lower. Activision does not care if you are unhappy with the game; only if their balance sheet says profit.

They may have their money right now, but if they want more money with their next game or new DLC they better shape up.

As P.T. Barnum once said "There is a sucker born every minute."

There are more than enough people with no taste in games whatsoever, that will blindly buy the next COD game as long as it has a new title and some weapon skins.

Doing (or in this case buying) the same thing over and over and expecting a different result...what's that sound like? Oh yeah, insanity. wink.gif

But seriously, didn't people learn from 5 years ago, then from 3 years ago, then from 2 years ago, that regardless of public outcry after a game comes out, not a whole lot gets done? You already flocked to the stores to throw your money at the game, it's one of the largest franchises in current video game history, you're showing the developer that you're happy with them. Why not, instead, remember what happened the last 3 times they released one of the franchise games, that the same things happened all over again, and speak with your wallet and not buy the game?

I fail to see the importance of a single day of non-gaming protest when you've already given the publisher their money. Jokes on you even more if you don't use a product you paid for. Whatever response is given from DICE, it will be symbolic at best. No publisher in their right mind that can't sell copies fast enough upon game release for the past 4 games they've released in a series will do a whole heck of a lot after the fact. After you've given them their multi-millions of sales.

And I guarantee you, even after this their next COD game will sell out. People will line up around the block for it. They'll play it. They'll complain about it. And they'll keep playing it.

and this.

the series hasn't been the same since MW2 and the no-dedi issue, and i remain one of those who didn't buy MW2 and will not. not getting my money for treating customers poorly... it's nice to see people banding together but why should Activision care? after all, wasn't it Bowling who said the PC gets shafted? most devs say that when things aren't doing so well or to hype support / media before a release - look at Randy Pitchford of Gearbox, who's made comments like:
Quote:
Although the source content for each version of the game is largely identical (with very few exceptions), the image rendered for each platform is specific to the hardware's capability on that platform. The high-end PC version will feature the crispest image possible. Higher fidelity rendering of the content (including high resolution materials) is just one obvious advantage the PC version will have in terms of image quality.

http://borderlandsguide.com/forum/randy-pitchford-borderlands-prettiest-pc

then after the game released, backtracked and said that we were lucky to have the game on PC at all (which i can't find the link for sadly)

re Duke Nukem Forever he was saying he had so much passion and was glad to be able to take the game and rescue it
Quote:
"The short story of it is: Because of my history with Duke, because of my relationship with Scott and George, because of the trust and respect that Gearbox and Take Two were able to build through our work together with Borderlands, and through the capabilities that I have built with my team to be able to ship games on these platforms — because of all of these things, I was in a spot that, if I took a bet and got in there and put myself in the line of fire in the middle of this thing, I knew that I could bring all these pieces together and that I could save Duke.

http://kotaku.com/5630192/how-duke-nukem-forever-was-brought-back-to-life (read that entire article) and
Quote:
"Gearbox was handpicked as the new home for Duke Nukem because of their continued passion, commitment and long-time heritage with the brand and 3D Realms. Gearbox and Duke Nukem make for a devastating match made in video game heaven," commented Scott Miller, co-founder of 3D Realms. "The gaming community's love and demand for the Duke Nukem brand never wavered and Gearbox will not disappoint them. As you have seen from titles such as Borderlands, Gearbox will bring the right level of addictively compelling gameplay, humor and high powered explosive action to the franchise. Duke Nukem is back and will be bigger than ever."

"Gearbox was the only home appropriate for the Duke Nukem brand. They are very talented and possess the perfect perspective and understanding of the brand. Their vision for its future direction is exciting and unbelievable. I am personally cannot wait for fans to see their unique take on the franchise," said George Broussard, co-founder of 3D Realms. "This will be a win-win situation for everyone involved, especially the fans."

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2010/09/the-death-and-rebirth-of-duke-nukem-forever-a-history.ars/4

and after the game released we have headlines like this:

Duke Nukem's PR threatens to punish sites that run negative reviews
Quote:
"Too many went too far with their reviews...we are reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn't based on today's venom," the company tweeted. "Bad scores are fine. Venom filled reviews...that's completely different," another tweet read. Currently, Duke Nukem Forever has a Metacritic score of 49 on the Xbox 360, the format most commonly sent to the press. For a game with such a large marketing budget and name recognition, that's shockingly low.

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2011/06/duke-nukems-pr-threatens-to-punish-sites-that-run-negative-reviews.ars

Ars went on to give a scathing review which even went onto mainstream media... that doesn't happen often...

subsequently, he goes to say that people will like the game because it's Duke, and compares it not to a work of art like you'd have expected beforehand, but to a greasy hamburger... game went on to do poorly critically...

and it turns out recently he has said more:
Quote:
He said the latter was an unfortunate victim of high expectations built up over the 15 years before its eventual release, and because of this, Duke didn't stand a chance.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/gearbox-randy-pitchford-duke-nukem-DNF-FPS,15160.html

now the same thing is being done in building the hype machine for Borderlands 2:

Borderlands 2 will be good on PC too, promises Clap Trap - Gearbox doing it properly this time: apparently they've also sent out a love letter to PC players, yet if you look at that letter it's a lot of pretty standard stuff: mouse usable menu, PC specific UI, VSync, high res options, no necessary port forwarding...

see, after a while, one starts to notice when one is talking trash and just saying things to be in vogue... your money is all that matters, and once they have that they don't need anything else.
