yeah, the should learn from CD Projekt RED, DRM is nothing but a hassle to the non pirate consumer
Well, that not entirely true. MMOs cant be cracked. I have a feeling most games in the future will end up being server based.
But that will be the death of games for many if that happens. Because EA is notorious for shutting down a server, and imagine trying to play one of your favorite games years from now when a servers been shut down. That will not fly with most users.
MMOs can't be cracked? Owners of private WoW servers beg to differ.
I believe you need to use a controller.
Not, they dont. the guy is way over rated. and a tool.
I can't stand the guy, but when you have over 50 million people as your audience, you get to make the big choices.
No its M$ loss, they are failing to make sales because they refuse to use the most widely used gaming platform on the planet. Let me put it to you this way, if you use the market and only sell around 40000 copies but if it was on Steam and it sold 200000 copies to me that out does any lose they take to 30 percent. Which one do you thinks makes more sense when you are reaching a far more receptive audience?
I understand what you're saying, but Microsoft doesn't "need" the extra sales - they're not going out of business any time soon because of the extra sales they would've gotten from a Steam release.
I would of course prefer to use Steam as well, but to be honest, I don't care if I download the games from Steam, Uplay, Origin, GOG or any other place for that matter.
Now, the Windows Store absolutely has its issues and it's pretty bad compared to the other digital distribution clients available. It needs more features and it needs to get fixed in other regards as well. Especially removing or make it easy to hide shitty mobile games and stuff. Simply put, a better store front overall.
However, I purchase and play good games. I don't care where I have to purchase and download them. I will support good games no matter the choice of client and so far, Microsoft has been releasing some good games (especially Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. Killer Instinct is pretty good if you're into those games as well - I'm not. And the mini-version of Forza is great for what it is as well). If they continue to do so and if they make their store front better, people will follow - just like they did with Origin and, in many cases, Uplay.
