what you don't realize is that studios (especially large ones like EA) pay their employees discretionary incentive bonuses when games sell well/exceed expectations at launch/receive high ratings from industry media/etc. so put simply, if more consumers buy a new game (ie at launch), studios will give their employees more money- usually as an incentive to work even harder on their current project and keep them from looking for work else where.

unfortunately since im a freelance/contract artist, i don't receive these perks but my peers who work in house at different studios have all received some sort of financial compensation when their titles sell well (esp. at launch). u wouldn't believe the bonus activision gave to treyarch employees when black ops came out :hot:


You do realize that ea has already been paid for the games right? They get paid when best buy buys them not when the consumer buys them. Seeing how they are trying to get rid of them...regardless of if you buy new I don't see them ordering more just so they can take a loss at $15 again.
I really wish people new about business before getting into a slap fight just to do it.


Not to mention. The game is not even great. It's average at best. So why are we supporting devs that ea themselves don't even trust anymore? Lol the devs have already been paid.


Also...why are you in this topic? Why not set up shop on the gamefly or GameStop topics? Lol

What cocojames doesn't know is that if you have product sitting on the shelves, you can demand concessions from publishers, especially if you're the size of best buy.

So yes, even though they bought the game to begin with, it doesn't mean EA has already made their money.

But I guess he's one of those people who he accused of getting into slap fights who dont know anything about the business just to do it.

Then don't buy a game if you're not interested in it or it doesn't meet your quality standards. I know this doesn't jibe with your worldview, but everyone deserves to be paid for their work.

That's the thing though. I've been interested in some games that ended up super glitchy. Some of them are fun to mess with(GTA games), while some are just frickin' annoying(Dead Islands' online co-op which completely freezes your PS3 about every 2 hours:roll:).

You're wasting your time.

Even if they released a perfect game, do you think he'd actually support the devs? Of course not.

While they may not be 100% perfect games, I have bought quite a few at launch or very close and for full retail tyvm. The short list include: GTA IV(Special Edition no less for $90), GTA IV Episodes, Just Cause 2, Lord Of The Rings: War In The North, Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, Catherine, Saint's Row 3, both Little Big Planet games and their subsequent GOTY editions, Red Dead Redemption/Undead Nightmare and then it's GOTY edition and Darksiders.

There's actually many, many more to add to that list. But that's the ones I remember off the top of my head.

Maybe if it was <$5.

:)ANY game is worth a $5-10 price and at least a partial playthrough. But that's why I'm normally very cautious anymore as to what I spend my money/credit on. I've bought some real duds for MSRP before and I definitely don't like wasting money. Although at least by being on CAG I can waste LESS money and buy more crap.:lol:

That's due to your shitty connection, not the game. There may be problems connecting to people, but it doesn't normally freeze people's PS3s.

New = support to the devs. Period. That's why I try to buy new whenever possible.


I'll buy new 90% of the time. But I'm not going to go out of my way to support a mediocre game from EA that to me is barely worth the cost of an online pass.

That and to avoid stains and random hairs. Shudder.

Anyway, whether you buy used or new is ones own choice. But they are not the same thing.


Luckily, GF discs don't come with random stains and hairs.

And I'm not saying they are the same thing, so I don't know why you took issue with what I said. But they are comparable. They are the same game. I'm not going to pretend that a used copy of a game in good condition, along with a brand new condition case, manual, and online pass from GF isn't more or less the same TO ME as a new copy just because of the technical definition.

There was actually a pretty well known issue with freezing when trying to play online Co-op (at least on ps3). I believe that got patched a few months after release.

I've gotten nothing but garbage from GF and one had some nice clamp (?) grooves on 4 sides of the disc, couldn't even trade it in. Unless it is out of print, new or nothing for me.

Actually everybody I've played with has had freezing issues and I know one of them is a fellow CAG and has a much better connection that I do.

Apparently not though, since it's still happening and has happened to everybody I've been playing with the last couple of days. I know there was a 31mb patch but that was the only one that's popped up for me. I even tried deleting the file with it and redownloading it to no avail.

Yeah after reading quite a few post-patch comments, I see many others still having the same issues as you. As you mentioned, definitely not a connection problem.

I tend to have patience for very few racing games. But in the past few years the 2 (Or 3, if we're counting Mario Kart 7 as one) racing games I've really enjoyed we're NFS Hot Pursuit and Split Second. Split Second is a very underrated game.

I have a feeling this game is going to end up being free to PS Plus members. I'm trying to control myself here and not get the 360 version after reading that the PS3 version freezes and etc. from comments here. I don't mind the 15 bucks, I can do that store pick up thing, throw in a couple of blu ray movies, and get rid of that 50 dollar thing to get that 10 dollar coupon. Still debating, afraid they'll have Binary Domain or something better on sale this week and I'll end up being annoyed lol.
