How have people got the game early?

41 posts in this topic

Odds are it's just local stores selling it early. I know one store here in NY that already sold out in just one day, I'm still pissed I didn't get to grab one.

Reviewers and people who might have been lucky to find a store that broke release date. 

 

But more than likely it's reviewers.

There are a few places that will break the release date and sell it early.

Which they shouldn't since it's against the rules to do so.

Here at the dominant gaming store Webhallen, I can receive a pre-ordered game a day ahead of its release date. Rise of the Tomb Raider arrived at my mailbox the day before its release, so I expect the same for Crash Bandicoot.

Same reasons as always. Review copies, and stores that broke street date.

People get free copies early, happens with most games. Usually reviewers, influencers or others in the industry.

Yeah, just a little bit.. Don't give the guy grief if doesn't know this. Just because your knowledge about early access to games is stronger than his, doesn't mean you need to put the guy down. Ignore the thread, simple as that. 1f601.png 

 

Yeah you're right...but but..but,I guess you have to start somewhere

I'm getting sick and tired of these fucking morons who get there game so early before everyone else on the official release date. Whether it's being a famous youtuber, reviewer or any other specific whatever it is. I just think these early gamers don't deserve to play the early games, they should end up getting a charge fine for that, I know it's silly, but it is true.

Devs want to get their game on YouTube and such to create as much interest as possible for sales. It's all to do with marketing. You could get them too if they thought you could boost sales for them! 😛

Wow , why so angry? Does it affect you when some other play it earlier? They dont take it away from you. They play it maybe 1 Week earlier.  With this opinion you can also hate some countrys for getting games hours or days earlier. Sorry but maybe you should overthink what games mean for you. 

And btw i reviewed 3 games in my life and i can tell you its way different than just relaxing and playing the game.  YT or Streamer (some of them ) do this as main job and there are many downsides of this job aswell , its not just gaming , earning money ez life ez job.

 

And if you really cant handle than start streaming or YT or reviewing and maybe you get your "1 week " advantage aswell.

They're a moron because they get something early? Either they're lucky and know someone that will break the store date for them, or they're popular and advertise the game for the developer by playing a free copy. Which, yes, is essentially free advertisement for the developer. Sure, it would cost them a game, but do you have any idea how much it costs to advertise anything? Trust me, it's not cheap. So trading a free game in exchange for advertising to children on YouTube or wherever else it may be, is extremely beneficial.
 

Bet you wouldn't refer to yourself as a moron if you had early access to the games though. Funny how that works, isn't it?

Avoid YouTube and places that may spoil something if it bothers you so much. But I don't think spoilers are much of a bother in the case of Crash Bandicoot...

Oh looky loo, a completely new and unique question. I definitely haven't seen this obvious question asked for nearly every popular release ever. 

 

But here's something for you, seeing as you wont be playing Crash tonight. Enjoy.

Lucky you, I get it release date myself (well, gotta ring up the store to make sure anyway), which is two days away, but that just makes me want to play it that much more.  Just can't wait for it.

 

But regardless... lucky you :D

Q: What's the only thing more stupid and impotent than complaining about other people playing a videogame before release date?

 

A: Complaining about other people playing a videogame before release date for a RE-RELEASE OF A GAME that you COULD HAVE PLAYED LITERALLY ANY TIME IN THE PAST 20-odd years!

Im not overthinking anything.

But if it is to complicated what I and other people try to tell you than i put it simple:

 

You just jealous that other ppl get something befor you, so you call them moron and start to cry like a baby . So grow up and chill a little bit.
