"Numbers playing have dropped"? PC version sales ~ 15 million as of June 2014 vs. 21 million today the fact is more and more people are purchasing the game, and I suspect that would translate into more people playing the game, so unless you have some sources proving your statement, then I don't buy that comment.
"Also 2 feature updates is far less than most games. Fact" care to list the PS or Xbox games which have multiple free feature updates? because every year I have to buy the new 2Kwhatever for soccer/football/hockey/baseball/wrestling etc. etc. or COD 2/3/4 and GTA 1/2/3/4/5 etc.
From my vantage point most games companies force you to purchase a whole new version of the game, but if you could list them that would help to prove your "Fact."
"They make A LOT of money, more than most independent companies could dream of, yet they have chose rather than to be humble, they will instead pull an EA"
So they aren't allowed to make money? Or is there a cap on how much they may make? And as for them being humble? please cite specifics, because for the whining and crap they put up with from fans complaining about every nuance of the game, they still answer tweets; forum posts etc. and they seem pretty humble to me?
PC sales....blaw blaw. This is PS4 section btw. "I don't buy that comment."
I base my findings on observations from the psn, gone from 30+ people on friends list playing to 4.. Streams, gone from a top 5 everyday game to top 20, roughly 750+ streams to a tame 200 now, with noticeably less viewing also. The nearly 10,000 strong gaming community I game from has no interest in the game any more across consoles.
Warframe, Planetside 2, Rocket league... There is plenty, don't be ignorant. Yes there are companies wanting money 2 times a year for a re skinned game, or theres Destiny that are holding content you already have payed for ransom for $40. Nevertheless there are games with less income and ability than minecraft hammering out quality updates, communicating with fans etc.
I don't care about "tweets", that takes them what... 5 seconds to reply. I'm looking for more than a yearly update, and looking for less time taken to fix bugs, there are still untouched bugs from last years update..
I understand that the fanboi in you wants to defend and be loyal but they really are doing a bad job. When were slimeblocks released on PC? And it takes over a year to port it across? rubbish. They give us a few items for creative mode to try hold us through? colored glass....not good enough. People are not critical enough of games companies, which is why they do what they are all starting to do, expect money but not work for it.
