Perhaps they'll finally take the hint and realise that GAMES COST TOO FARKING MUCH.
A new game costs twice a newly released DVD, and thrice a paperback novel, while offering far less mature content in most cases, as both mediums have had far longer to mature and evolve than the relatively young gaming industry.
But that's not all, it's the fact that after a gamer has somehow manages to afford the ridiculous hardware he needs to get a fully enjoyable experience out of a game, without it looking like pixellated putty, he probably doesn't want to shell out yet more just to play said games.
Trapping gamers on consoles will not win out, it will only encourage the growing popularity of free/low priced indie games and digital distribution systems.
Many people would rather pay Ã‚Â£5-Ã‚Â£10 for a game via Steam than go through the trouble of finding a reliable torrent, cracking it, hoping it won't be full of child pornography or viruses, and finding himself without case, manual, or the right to patch it or request support.
But rant number 2; Who gives a fuck about support? It's always the community who come up with the answers! Leaving ignorant publisher callcenters to handle every problem these rushed games inevitably present does not make for happy gamers!
