  1. While it's true that games are generating more revenue than ever before, the truth is quite nuanced. Let's take Sony's record-breaking 2018-2019 results as an example: Although their video game division generated almost 3 times more revenue than their music division, the operating income is only about 33-34% higher (311.1 billion yen vs 232.5 billion yen). As a result, their video game division is still not *that* much more profitable despite generating far more revenue during a record-breaking year. In fact, increased budgets can easily eat up their ~13% operating margin. Increasing the price of games at the beginning of a console generation makes the most sense in terms of future-proofing in case budgets do increase. Furthermore, their shareholders likely expect the operating income to reflect the increase in the size of the industry. I am in no way defending price increases for garbage-tier games that are already filled with microtransactions, but if this allows some studios to pursue their vision without potential budget limitations in the future, then I don't see a problem.
  2. $59.99 in 2006 is actually equivalent to about $76 in 2020, so it's a miracle that they've been able to keep prices this low considering the ever-increasing budgets. I was expecting prices to increase during the PS4 generation.
  3. Again, the PS4 version will remain exactly the same. This was a false alarm due to the wording of the notice. Only the PC version is losing online functionality.
  4. I mentioned it in the other thread, but this notice was interpreted wrong. Nothing is going to change for the PS4 version and you'll still be able to play Comrades after the 24th. The notice is from over 2 months ago and has already been discussed here: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFXV/comments/fsqhky/news_termination_of_online_content_for_ffxv/
  5. Square Enix's patch notes can be incredibly confusing, so I can definitely understand the way the notice was interpreted.
  6. There's already been a thread regarding this over 2 months ago: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFXV/comments/fsqhky/news_termination_of_online_content_for_ffxv/ Detailed Information Functions of FINAL FANTASY XV and FINAL FANTASY XV Windows Edition will be partially terminated from Wednesday, June 24, 2020 (JST). To be removed for Console versions: [ FFXV Information ] from the [ Title Menu ]. [ FFXV Information ] equivalents from other menus. To be removed for PC versions: [ FFXV Information ] from the [ Title Menu ]. [ FFXV Information ] equivalents from other menus. Avatara System to replace Noctis' appearance. Avatara System phantoms. Avatar System Official treasure. Avatara System User Treasure. Avarar System User Photos. For Steam and Origin versions only (see Update 1): Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades online functionality. Offline functionality is still available. Comrades online matching between Steam and Origin version servers. ---------------------------------------------- The PC version will be losing its online component while the console versions will only lose its "information" section. All functionality will remain the same for the console version. It's been well documented that this was going to happen on June 24th.
  7. Nothing is going to change. They're simply removing the game update information from both the base game and Comrades. If you look at the "Items to be deleted" part in the notice, you can see that they're not removing any of the actual content.
  8. It looks like only the update information will be deleted. This would make sense because there will be no further updates to the game. They're only deleting the online content from the PC version, but the actual game (Including the online component for the PS4 version) will still be fully functional.
  9. It looks like I qualify for Kupo Lover.
