GR:O Revenue Model & Value Perception
Posted 06 June 2011 - 10:16 AM
It's not difficult to see how appealing these prospects are to the publisher, and any objection to a particular game's value proposition is easily handled with the dismissive (and somewhat duplicitous) market speak statement that: 'Well you don't have to pay for anything, you can play for free...'. So, I wonder if Theo (or anyone at Ubisoft) can offer on objective statement devoid of marketing double-speak regarding the net value of what a Fan of Ghost Recon: Online will get for say the target price of $59.95; explicitly: Will $60 spent on Ghost Recon: Online give me similar features, benefits and volume of content I'd get in a retail box game, and will I get to keep keep that content for the life of the game?

Seriously though, many P4C 'Free' MMOFPS games let you outright buy content for the life of the game, as even this is sort of self-obsolescing as new content is added to the game all the time. So, the rent for time limited use can be a double whammy of geekspoitations...

I'll be curious to see when Ubi releases info about this because it's so new to the GR community.

There's a reason mods are still being made for GR ten years later. It still remains unmatched for gameplay quality. Who needs flashy graphics when you can have a game that consumes you and provides a quality tactical experience.
I think GRO will be fun, and I think I'll enjoy playing it. But I'll enjoy it like I do Black Ops... as a quick "hey, I've got 15 minutes, I'm gonna shoot some ######." Will I want to get back into ladder play and competitions with this like I did OGR? Probably not...

It wasn't, Look in the "GR: Online - Wii U" forum.
