[PG] Portal 2 Has Item Store, Trading Coming Soon.(VIDEO) - Page 4

post #31 of 53
dang!!!! There's almost 100k people in portal 2 right now according to steam stats. At $45 a pop from the preorders, that's over $4 mil. But of course loads more people also bought it just not playing it, and its also on ps3 and xbox for $60 a pop! Now with this store, why do they need more money ?

I wish there was an option to buy hats but force glados to wear it...

For the record: You CAN earn the hats (and other options) through playing. So far, I've already earned the "Bionic Beanie" (pink/grey beanie with companion cube 'ball' top, whatever that thing is called), and a 'flag'. The flag, as far as I can tell, just shows near your name, whereas the others show on the character itself.

hopefully they take the money from this overpriced pos dlc, and start on ep 3 and half life 3

hopefully its gonna be so good they needed the money from lame 50 dollar 4 hour sp and 400dollars worth of day one dlc to help get the real game rolling again

valve is who they are today because of halflife i mean have they forgot about half life? this is a cool tech demo but come on i love steam and all the indie devs getting a chance but has valve forgot how they got here....please release some damn news on half life anything, left for dead and portal are combined 5percent of what half life is

Because they are not 'pulling this crap' - they are giving you an option to buy some aesthetic content if you so wish.

They give out a ton of free DLC - GAME CONTENT, they sell the game for well below the retail average for a new game, they release it with a cool ARG which was fun, they offer it via Steam which has DRM measures that are not horribly stiffling, it is an amazingly fun game, one of the best of all time, I'd go so far as to say.

So, if they want to give people an option to buy stuff if they want to, why the hell not? If you go to a car dealer and they say you can get one of those stupid fake exhausts fitted to make it look good (supposedly), if you want, do you say the dealer is disgusting? No, they are offering a product the market wants, if you don't want it, it doesn't affect you at all.

If it means more profit for an amazing company that provide us with some of the best entertainment at some of the most reasonable prices... by all means do it.

Thought I better make that a bit more obvious.

Everyone needs to stop whining about it, if they had a gun to your head then it would be a problem. They don't, they're not forcing you to buy it. If you don't want to spend money you don't buy it. The whole store thing has worked pretty well for Valve so far, not sure why they would stop when its making a decent amount of money so they can bring us more great games in the future.

I see no RPG's in this post.

On topic - I can't wait to play this game.
