I read this article and it sort of reinforced the feeling I had that game companies are putting the squeeze on customers these days to the entire industry's detriment. Games are mainstream entertainment products but priced as extravagant luxury items. We are treated as cash cows and charged like bulls but it can't last much longer. DLC and endless patches are making it harder to swallow the premium pricing system. Eliminating used games with the new consoles will help balance the companies books slightly but the fact remains that I'm sure every gamer has felt a little sore after being raped by the business model. The convoluted business model of PC gaming especially has been sadly strangling the growth of what should have always been the dominant gaming platform. It's sad that politics and retarded business decisions could possibly drive the industry into the ground (again). I really think the game industry doomsday clock is ticking closer to about 11.45pm what do you guys think?
