    Sony probably won't approve a sequel because it didn't make *BANK* so the dev is mad at the buyer instead of Sony.

    Plus he probably assumes people are going to pirate the game on PC (if/when cracked) and he's mad about that too.

    I've played most of Bend Studios games and I think this one is the worst. I was a fan of the Syphon Filter games especially the PSP/PS2 ones, and Resistance Retribution on PSP was solid. This was meh. In fact I beat the 5 main Syphon Filter games and Resistance but did not bother to beat this one.

    Ehh most games nowadays aren't Day 1 worthy purchases if you consider almost 50% of the game is locked behind DLC.... Maybe PS2 and early PS3 games was worth Day 1 purchases because a paywall wasn't behind the game and you unlocked your characters normally instead of buying them.

    Make a game worth $60 then. I'm getting sick of playing short, expensive games. I've probably played Deadly Premonition for longer than a lot of higher cost titles, and on sale for Switch it goes for like $6, and launched on the 360 for $20. I feel like quality free to play titles like Warframe have more value than a lot of $60 games.
    Maybe they should've made games that weren't basically episodic interactive movies. Deadly Premonition got a sequel last year and that launched 10 years ago for $20 and it didn't sell well at the time. But it got a cult following.

    You could apply the same conditions to Persona 4 Golden. A lot of people became fans of the series because of Persona 5, and wanted to see what the previous game was like, even though it was stuck on the Vita. Atlus ported it to PC, and got massive sales from what was originally a PlayStation 2 game.
    They could easily attempt a hat-trick by releasing P3FES on PC.

    I know you're joking, but there was indeed a "Minecraft 2.0" - an April Fool's joke release, from several years ago. Added stuff like stained glass and redstone blocks before they were in the actual game, surprisingly.

    I'm kind of wondering... Is the guy not just assuming everyone wants sequels to beloved games in the first place?

    Look at other media for a second : did the really great works for sequels? No. There's no 'football 2.0' being popular, no Bible 2 or 1985 books, citizen Kane didn't have a sequel, and so on. And where they did get sequels, they're either planned from the start (lord of the rings, for example) or are just not the same quality (matrix 2 and 3 come to mind).
    In the board game world, there are some expansions and a few new releases of REALLY popular games, but that's about it. Fuck... Games are shunned of they're too similar to other board games.

    But in AAA video game land? If it's not a remaster then it's a remake, and if it's not a sequel then it 'borrows' most mechanics from other popular games.
    Sequels are fine when you've got more ideas than you could cram in the original (super mario galaxy 2,for example) or back when technology increased so fast that there's a clear difference thanks to better hardware. But nowadays the amount of franchising has grown beyond what should be reasonable.

    In other words : I should send this guy's note to AAA studios :

    'dear devs: if your majority of sales (in numbers) starts to come from discounted purchases, it's probably time to stop churning out sequels as the fan popularity is waning'

    Poverty is relative, especially when things like region and price policies come into play - it's entirely possible to have your needs covered, but videogames still being prohibitively expensive in your country (Brazil and Russia for example).

    Besides, poorer people still deserve to enjoy videogames and engage in сommunity, and dismissing them as "well, they shouldn't prioritize vidjagames" (rather than making vidjagames more accessible) is kind of eh .з.

    No, deciding not to buy a game that was never fixed by the developers is not the consumer's problem, that's stupid.
    It is always on the publisher to decide if the game gets released in a broken state, you don't ask for people to buy your broken game in the hopes that it eventually gets fixed, you release a finished game.

    Someone complaining that a game is broken is completely valid even if they didn't buy it, the game is still as broken whether they bought it or not.

    And since I know it will come up, no, budget and publishing expenses are not something the consumer has to take into consideration either, we are buying a product with the expectation that it will work.

    It's a for profit business, just like anything else, not a charity, also import and shipping costs are different, for physical items

    You also have to account for the parent company (console manufacturer), for more of the bugs and issues, for example, Sony and M$ rushing development so they can push sales on consoles that they already sell to you at a loss so you can afford it, so they need software and services available to recoup back that cost, they have the ultimate say whether the game runs/gets released and digitally signed,

    They don't care if a game has bugs or glitches, if it functions then the dev can release patches

    It's not always the devs fault, external circumstance

    To be fair, when I go to Private Dining and start my fancy dinner with my date, there has never been a time when the Chef comes up to me and tries to explain their way out of why my Imported Dinner isn't as good as what was promoted and what I paid for.

    Now that's an expensive example which has relevance with AAA Games, who sell themselves as the cream of the crop.

    I do not give a flying F what the Developer's problems are because they also do not care for me trying to explain my way out of paying less than the asking price at the Checkout Counter.

    We all have problems.
    Deal.

    When full price is $150+ after DLC and season passes, I just can't.

    Neither can my Private Dinner, which has a host of Logistical tasks associated with the Time of Year, Import Rates, International Relations and the Chef who is a Foreign National.

    Excuses are just that.

    When one claims to be the Best, excuses are the last thing anyone wants to hear.
    From Sports Cars, Private Dining, Athletes and, god forbid, AAA Titles.
