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.
