  • MHO shuts down after less than 6 months on consoles. Microsoft offering refunds, NA Sony is not.

    Better idea .. just play a game for f2p .. so no worries about refunds.


    LOL - and half of my games would be shutdown already because nobody supported them
    You unders-estimate the whales. I play Warframe for a while .. paying nothing .. it does not look like it is going away.

    Actually .. are you a whale? If you are .. then i concur .. please do play. Let me know which game you play. I will go there to have some free fun.

    Any modern game is much better than something like EQ, for me. 
    You are most definitely an "outlier."  Heck you practically live on an island. 

    ;)

    Except, of course, I go with the flow of how MMOs are classified by this, other website and others in the industry.

  • All you MMO newbs were warned about F2P. Yet you supported it.

    and i quote "Only 0.15% of players account for half of free-to-play game revenue".
    Actually the interesting bit is "the other" half of games revenue...
    Do you mean ...

    "Only 49% of players even make a single purchase in a game." .. so almost half pays nothing ... 

    and 

    "By day three (of 14 tracked), players had already spent nearly 75% of the total money they’d spend in-game, assuming they spent any."

    So apparently, retaining most players is just not necessarily since most paying players will not pay after 3 days.

    Clearly, this is about the whales.

      You're right; folks aren't going to pay more than one or two subs a month.  That worked when there weren't dozens of MMORPGs, released and EA/crowdfunded, vying for cash from the same relatively small niche of gamers.

    Lol .. "one or two subs a month"? Try zero. Nowadays, most players don't pay for any subs. 

    Sure, whales will pay through their nose (or should it be nozzle?) but they are paying to win, not subs.

  • Early Access Games - Glad To See Someone Calling It Like It Is

    This just means that there is a lot of suckers out there.

    Devs are not really lying about EA right? They basically said "pay us and we will let you alpha/beta-test".

    There is certainly no laws against that. It is a free world. If someone wants to be a sucker and risk their money for some unfinished game, who am i to argue? I say let them as long as there is no lying involved. 

    In fact, right now I am offering anyone who is willing to pay me $100 to see a 20-sentence description of my secret new game in development. I will call it "pre-early-access".
