I was thinking more, as it does seem to only be console gamers moaning. Pc gamers are like .. Meh ... You know it's not that bad as it's cheaper for us in the first place, as we don't rush like fucking retards day 1 to the stores to buy .. We wait for the massive prices drops.



As I'm sure I paid less for my new retail pc version with pyhsx than people stupidly pay for second hand copies of the console version at the time? And since it's only 9 new via DD there no need to buy a shitty second hand copy anyway which again would probebly cost way more than the new superior pc version.

Yet they'll still get the majority of the important games and first go figure.

Indeed but by with multi platform stuff it's becoming less and less .. And someone needs to tell Nintendo there is even a party tbh

Yeah, the 'majority' of games are multiplatform. Whatever games that get delayed is usually an extremely short time. Very very few get a large wait period. And during that time I'm too busy playing a shitload of awesome PC exclusives. I'll also spend about half the money the console gamer will, plus the graphics will be heaps better. Not sure where the negatives are.

I don't have a problem with digital distribution per se, save for if/when whatever services relative to it get shut down. The thing that's good about owning physicals is that you own it forever. There've been many stories of digital services deleting content from people who've purchased it (Amazon's Kindle) or closing off accounts (Steam) without a refund. This I find disturbing.

I'm just going to ignore all the scaremongering and retarded over-exaggerations since it's just annoying me now, I hate being the sole voice of reason in these discussions which always spiral into retardedness. Cry more, I'm very much past caring.

And yeah, I'm a PC Gamer who buys all my games new, and has the ability to wait for price drops; I couldn't really give a shit about what happens to console gamers and the used industry.

Getting your steam account locked is about as likely as you getting your ISP account closed. Dont do anything dumb online, like cheat or run programs that resemble cheats in online games, and you wont get your account locked. Also do not log into online servers that are standard ones, for example Chris's double XP TF server. That sounds a liiittle dubious. Stick to being normal and you're good. I've had my steam server since it started. I have games that I bought in less of that time frame that do not want to read anymore. My Dark Messiah game? Fucked. No scratches, just fucked. Luckily my cdkey that came with it allows me to download the game from steam. BOOM +1 to cdkeys in the industry. I cant, I cant find, where is that game, its in my cupboard somewhere, standing on this chair with my flashlight, moving shit, no not here, must be over here, no maybe a friend has it, oh god....oh wait my games on steam BOOM +2 DD.

Not to patronise, but anyone that ever even ponders that they may be the 'sole voice of reason' should seriously consider the saying 'mad men never realise they're mad'.
