Re: Should rockstar charge Xbox players extra?

Yes Juan, we believe that it is wrong to over charge consumers based on their console preference so we are clearly Xbox players.

The Xbox version of gta v comes in two disks. While the ps3's comes in 1.
It comes in one because sony's blu ray can hold 50+gb on data.

It isn't rockstars fault Microsoft has such poor engineering aka choosing hd DVD that holds nothing close to do or does not compare with the quality; making gta v on two disks.

The ink used to print the content onto that extra cd, and the extra cd itself would be around $2+ loss per sale.

If they sold 7 million CDs that's a loss of 14 million $

So what are your views on this?



No way does printing a dvd cost $2, even with ink,lol.

 

The bluray format disc is worth about 4-5 times more then a DVD disc, so MAybe we should pay more, lol.

 

Plus the fact that dvd's only hold enough for 1/3 of a decent current gen games I bet all the devs pitched in and bought a family case of dvds at a discount, lol.

 

lots of multiplatform games had to be shoveled onto 2-3 discs.  MGS4 would have had to be placed on 5 discs if it was on 360, lol.

If you alienate a consumer, chances are that consumer won't buy your product. This is simply fan boy talk to put down the other console's player base.
The OP makes a point to say that isn't Rockstar's fault that "Microsoft has poor engineers." And it isn't the consumers fault either, so why should they pay more. Its just a baseless argument.
I understand the idea behind your thought but it simply isn't a correct way to do business and is would be incredibly hypocritical on Rockstar's part.

Well really if they charged $2 more for the 360 copy I doubt it would affect sales at all.

 

$2 more for 360 version, $2 less for digital version, etc.

 

But I already explained why it shouldnt cost $2  more.

That would make no sense. They already charge $60 dollars. Having 2 discs shouldn't require charging extra.


What they should really do on 360 due to their poor choices is just charge anyone who wants to access the internet a surcharge equal to the amount of a full game purchase!

 

Then to be **bleep** they can make them repay this fee every year, lol that would be hilarious......

 

Then no worries about a few cents worth of extra disc for each game.......  And the customer will think becausew they pay for a service it immediately gets better, LMFAO.  Seriously someone needs to do this, theres one born every second someone needs to reel them in.

What is this thread? It isn't even Playstation related. If this was a post about The Last of Us it would have MVPs in here complaining for it to be moved by now. Smiley Mad
