Yeah, I almost feel like contacting that JackA$$ and rubbing it in.
But anyways, thats how ip lawyers and corporate money men think.
A few games tank, so they decide never to invest in that genre ... rather than look into the real reasons why the game tanked.
MM Sequel done correct, has tremendous potential to be a smash hit... Unlike some box sliding puzzle game.
Then again, that also proves another point.. is that games are too expensive. Many of the indie and phone games are cheap... so people will give them a shot, because its not such a big hit to the pocketbook.
Reduce full content game prices, and sales will more than cover any losses from higher profit margins lost. Personally, I cant afford to buy games anymore, even if I actually Liked a game. Which is kinda good, cause nobody has been making much anything worth buying anyways.
The Music industry should have also followed the same advice. A cd for $5 will sell 10 times that of a 10 to 20$ cd. Maybe even more. The music industry could have skyrocketed by lowering prices. Instead, they choose to raise prices, put rootkits in cds, reduce cds output quality, and finally sue music fans... when fans have pretty much had it with their crap.
