Day one editions.

Who created this meme?
>>
>>323795021
You did when you kept pre-ordering after we told you to fucking stop that shit.
>>
>>323795021
xbox one did
>>
Don't listen to >>323795240
Sony, as everything that is cancerous in this industry.
>>
We did, anon.

We created it.

We created it when we told publishers we'd be happy to pay for unfinished, unreleased games.

We created it when we told publishers we'd love to stand in line for a midnight release.

We created it when we bought the same "GOTY" version of every game with maybe a new map and character skin.

We created it when we bought them before.

This is the world YOU and I have made for ourselves, OP.

Are you happy?

I'm fucking not.
>>
Is there "Day One" edition often worth much more money than a regular copy?
>>
The "shit you won't get buying it used" approach. Just like pre-ordering. Or they'll offer a way to buy that special bonus content later at a price.
>>
>>323795531
Melodramatic little faggot.
>>
>>323795607
Nope, if you check any store you will find several of these "Day One" copies just laying on the shelf.
>>

That's a shop, right? There isn't actually a day one edition, is there?

I still haven't bought a piece of DLC to this day that wasn't part of a GOTY bundle or whatever.
>>

What's wrong with GOTY releases you spastic? Do you have a clue what you're talking about? Why wouldn't you wait and buy a game with all released expansions?

I very rarely by games on release. It's cheaper to wait and better because they'll fix the game by the time you play it. I've waited months to buy a game and they still had "Day 1" packaging left. Don't blame me with your "we" bullshit for being an impatient impulse buyer.

Usually Japanese devs.
The oldest one I can remember is One piece unlimited world red.
>>
>>323796075
Anybody who says they've never bought into some hype train and allowed a video game developer/publisher/retailer to jew them with a preorder bonus or a GOTY edition is a filthy liar.

The healing can start when you take responsibility for this mess.

I didn't lie, I did pre-order games when I was younger. It was still in times when the only pre-order bonus you might have gotten was a t-shirt with a shit print or if you were lucky a poster.

Never pre-ordered a game that had DLC as pre-order bonus though, I either always pirated those or waited for Ultimate Whatever Edition, which usually was cheaper and patched.

You sound like some kind of religious nutcase. "just accept you have committed original sin and prove me correct" Stop taking video games so seriously.
>>
>>323795021
>>323795531
>people think big publishers are the worse
Think again, small publishers are fucking Jews. Case in point: Distant Worlds.
Paid more than 100 bucks to buy the game with all expansions when it was a small game just being sold on the Matrix shop.
Then they do a steam release with all the expansions for 60$. And I don't get a key. And they stop supporting the classic version and only patch the Steam one now.
So now I got to pay 60$ just for a bugfix patch.
>>
You'll still see Day One copies 3 months after its release, so who cares
>>
>>323796241
What's mad about that, Anon? :)
>>
>>323796816
more like 9 months. Before christmas there were still FF type-0 day one edition laying around in gamestop.
>>
>>323796816
Any Day 1 nonsense I've bought has been months after the game released and I've never actually used the Day 1 content. It's always some ugly weapon skins or some dumb bonus level for a single player game that gives you overpowered items and ruins the pacing of the story.
>>
>>323795021
I think they intentionally make the standard edition cover shitty as to entice you to get the collectors edition.

collectors editions never have that crap and are in most cases extra clean on the cover.
>>
>>323797501
It depends. Some are the same with the banner on top. Other are different. The fucking standard DS3 looks way better than the DayOne.
>>

No one here is. The only thing people here are taking seriously are the buisnesses who are absolutely intent on nickel and diming their customers for every penny they have, and people buy into that stupidity en masse.

UH OH PEOPLE ARE CATCHING ON TO THE FACT THE WE RELEASE OVERPRICED DLC (up to 50% of the full game's price, for 10% of content) 3 MONTHS AFTER RELEASE, MAKING YOUR INITIAL PURCHASE WORTHLESS, THEN RE-RELEASE THE GAME IN 6 MONTHS, MAKING ALL OF THEM WHO BOUGHT THE DLC SEPARATELY FEEL LIKE IDIOTS

BETTER COME UP WITH A "DAY ONE EDITION" IT'S REALLY SPECIAL GUYS AND TOTALLY NOT A SCAM WE PROMISE PLEASE BUY IT ON DAY ONE

Fuck From, Sony and Bamco and the entire industry.

Xbox started all this shit. Halo popularized having paid DLC for maps, Xbox started the day one shit, and they STILL TAKE BATTERIES FOR THEIR FUCKING CONTROLLER GOD DAMN FUCK YOU MICROSOFT!
Sony just started the "Comfortable controller that breaks after 2 fucking months" and Nintendo started the "Innovative motion control that nobody wants or likes using" shit.

>“For Dark Souls 2, we don’t even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one. We did do additional content for Dark Souls, but generally downloadable content for Dark Souls II is not really being considered. Buy the package and you’ll get the full experience, and you’ll have as much fun as anybody else. Spending a couple dollars on certain items does not help the experience. So no free-to-play yet!”

-GOTY edition comes out the same day with the DLC cheaper if you don't own it yet

-DaS is an unfinished game with one short DLC; more expensive than the Old Hunters was
-Prepare to Die edition releases, full price on PC despite being a 1:1 port of the console version
-DaS2 comes out a low budget title made by a substitute team
-Three DLC's, Season pass
-Pre-order bonuses include unique weapons
-Delay the PC version so people buy it twice for maximum money
