Microsoft made a small mistake today when they put the Lost Planet demo on the US marketplace. It was removed after a couple of hours, but it was enough time for me to download it completely :) Here is a demo of me sucking at the first mission and getting killed by the boss. Sorry I did not have time to train like I usually do.
i'm a fierce supporter of niche games, which is why i'm willing to pay $50-60 USD on a module (a deep simulation of a single plane) for DCS. (53 minutes ago)
i don't have a problem paying full price for a 10-15h experience, but i know many do. I also wouldn't choose to play a game i was perhaps gonna spend a lot of time with based on if it was free or not. (58 minutes ago)
the 10-15h games could ofc be put into some netflix type service, not as the primary distribution i think, more like getting 1 year old movies on netflix, after they had their theatrical and video run (1 Hour ago)
Basically.. online-only PVP stuff works pretty naturally. Applying the same logic to a single player game is doomed to fail. (1 Hour ago)
