> I would love an explanation for this one. The last 15 years Halo has been $60 which included Forge, Coop, Multiplayer, Campaign. With MP going “free” this is a huge part of that previous $60.
I’ll inform 343 on your behalf that they need to work for free, provide their own resources/equipment, skip the insurance, and kill opossums for food.
On a more serious not games cost money to make and games are made to make a profit (shocking I know); game prices have remained largely static for well over a decade despite costing more and more to make. There have to be changes made to the system if games are going to continue to be profitable and continue to be made.
Multiplayer used to be primarily a tacked on experience to single player games. Things have switched around so more people buy things for the ‘add-on’ than the campaign/story. If single player campaigns don’t make money for the people funding their creation, then they’ll stop making them. That’s not someting I want to see.
To top it off coop and forge will not be out for months after launch.Where the hell do they think they can charge us $60 for a single player campaign that is missing numerous features
Forge/Co-op will come and if you want to delay your purchase till then you can. Co-op is a single feature. Forge isn’t part of the campaign, it’s a diversion that benefits artists and custom games. They are part of the package, it’s just the delivery date you’re not fond of.
I am getting real tired of companies trying to pull this F2P crap. Halo had enough recognition to easily have not been F2P. This would have lessened the amount of hackers, quitters, and boosters.
You’d have a much lower population. I doubt that would reduce the number of hackers, quitters, or booster. The latter two have been an issue since day one and there are punitive responses in place to help deal with them. The fist one is unfortunately an issue again (which it really hadn’t been since 4 till mcc hit pcc) that the game has returned to pc and while there have and will continue to be attempts to deal with those that do cheat and to prevent those things from working it’s always going to be an ongoing battle and the game being f2p doesn’t change that.
Was going to get the campaign until I saw what they are trying to pull.
yes, charging the normal price for a game for a normal game is utterly devious.
