I have the game on 3DS with two two toys (spyro and bash) funny, but I don't plan buying some more and I hope other companies wont start doing this (no nintendo, not pokemon ,Noooooooooooooo!!!!).
Tired of wasting space on your hard drive with DLC?, how about we waste space in your OWN house?
Given that you're required to go out and buy the toy accessory figures in order to gain access to some of the levels in the game itself it's not surprising people bought them.
You know, so they could play the damned levels in the game disc they already purchased.
Nothing to do with popularity, all to do with being sneaky fuckers. They should not be proud.
I've never played it, but I think that AR cards may put some 3DS (and Vita) games on the same path. That cards are easy to scan, but the collecting real stuff may become more frequent (Kid Icarus may go though this way).
I've been collecting them with my son. In that aspect, the game is a rewarding experience due to him always having something new to enjoy. If he's having fun, I'm having fun. We're only 14 figures away from a complete set, and we only need one more level set. Also, I play the 3DS version, so for me its interesting to see the differences between how the characters play on consoles, and how they play on 3DS.
In terms of approving of how its done, its a "to each his own" kind of thing. I don't mind it so much because I get to enjoy it with my son.
If they was cheaper I would mind less and may actually buy "dlc" more. Still kind of wishing for a real Spyro.
My gaming hobby is going become a collector hobby if this trend continues.
From the demo I played, it seem fun,but it could be better.
It's smart from a business side,but yes I agree with Rydian thats sneaky....
That scam got 30 million out of us? I wonder how much pokemon would have gotten if they made those pokemon cards into AR cards. Oh gawd...
I actually like this because this way, even if people pirate the games, they still need to buy the accessories, this could be a pretty good way to stop pirates (although it'd be better if they simply added some sort of item with the game so that the game could be fully playable, only being partially playable without that said item. =3
Although having like 20 or more figures is overkill, one would be enough for this. x.x
It's not hard to build an RFID spoofer from an Arduino board. All you would need are the RFID addresses. I'm sure the addresses are online somewhere, and if you really want all the stuff, I'm sure the board + parts wouldn't add up to nearly as much as the toys are worth.
Yar har fiddle dee dee!
Someone started to do this and got slapped with a cease-and-desist.
Crap, I thought of doing the same a while ago.
CHEAP UNLOCK EVERYTHING SKYLANDERS DEVICE - ONLY $79
FINE JEEZ, I'LL THROW IN FREE UPDATES FOR FUTURE TITLES!
I wouldn't ever sell something like that. On the other hand, for personal use only... Hmm..
I think I'll just stick to buying the toys.
Kids seems to go nuts for it, its like with the Moshi Monsters (which sell shitloads more but then they're £2 per bag and you don't see what you get) its a playground craze and to be honest I think it was a very good idea to do this...from a business point of view of course.
No worse than most DLC, at least you have something to show for it.
From the Wii U Rayman Legends trailer it kinda looks like Ubisoft may do something similar, but its easily ignorable, its not like you NEED to buy the additional toys to enjoy the game as there is enough content in there. I don't see Nintendo taking this idea up at all, they could have easily done so with Pokemon.
I only bought one, Cynder. I do not have the game, nor even the USB scanner thing, I just wanted an accurate figure of Cynder.
I have no interest in this now, but I'm not going to lie: if I was like, in the 5-8 range, this would be the cat's pajamas.
Have some kids of your own, then you'll understand.
peeps will buy fucking anything unbelievable
i read his blog and saw the letter...
god fucking forbid that they make 25 million instead of 30 million. on top of all the fucking sales from call of duty: modern borefare
this is why you keep your goddamn mouth shut until you "annonmously" release a "finished" project to be distributed by others....once it's online. it's too late. ala: Streets of Rage 4
like what Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes should have done. (YES I'M STILL SORE FROM THAT) not said a damn word, until it was released.
