That Video Game Looks Great, But Who Can Afford It?
from the paying-more dept
It’s a bit self-serving for the largest video game company to put out a statement that’s designed to push smaller video game companies out of business, but some of what they say still does make sense. With all of the new processing power in next generation consoles, EA is pointing out that games are getting really expensive to make. Some are apparently worried that this is holding back the development of new games — since it’s not worth trying if you don’t know there’s a “built-in audience” such as with a movie tie-in or a game sequel.
