Software companies now use arcade coin systems

https://twitter.com/ColinWilliamson/status/1570210853689110531?t=ZTGihtq-HGiJqanF0bShZQ&s=19

Now maya is not a subcription, neither the other autodesk tools.
They have replaced their old subscription model with a token system from videogame arcades.

You can now buy 300 tokens pack or more.
Opening Maya now cost 6 tokens per use.

        its called GMOs and they have been around for a couple of decades. the plant can only grow once but is sterile, forcing you to buy new seeds from GayCorp™every single year. they basically destroyed the indian farming market this way. and that is in addition to them causing cancer

        I remember when horse armour in Obvlivion was a joke, mainly because of how pointless it was. But now we've got games that are all about throwing as much money at the publishers for the slim chance to do better in the game, and I'm starting to think that the horse armour had to be pointless otherwise the bullshit wuld have been stopped.

      But that's exactly the kind of people who pirate the software. Everybody knows all users who only want to try out some expensive design software, or keep it for personal use always pirate it, especially if it requires a subscription. Some small businesses do too. The only people who are expected to buy it are corpos and other big name businesses who are under a lot of scrutiny, because if word ever came out of them pirating their software, they would get sued to shit or at the very least ruin their reputation, and that's just not worth the risk.
      It's literally just like winrar, but with extra "cheaper" options to hopefully trick a couple retards into getting scammed.

      this has been a thing for a while now. where does it say they are getting rid of the subscription model? i can still get it up on the website. it's aimed at people who aren't daily users but don't want to pay for the full-price subscription. only a weekend hobbyist? you only need to pay for what you use.
      also you can still get the indie version for less than $300 if you wanted to. and the educational edition is completely free.

      don't want to pay for it? good. use blender. pirate it. noone cares

    The only use I could see out of this is to use their pirated software and then pay for tokens to load the models and launder them to release for the kind of clients who worry about licensing.
    Pretty sure you can do that in other software too though.

          dishonest blender shill. it's been $290 for a while now and it's much much better than your pajeet-made garbage. good luck spending $300+ on addons to make it half usable (and still being unable to do decent texture painting)

      And it swings back into trash territory way faster than it gets out of it.
      I still laugh at the though of how Netflix managed to reduce movie/show piracy almost a wooping 20% in america when it gained traction, then next year all is lost thanks to prime video, Disney + and such.

    The only thing auto desk has done to affect an individual is the removal of easy and perpetual educational licenses, which is barely a dent as personal use piracy has always been a thing since full licenses used to have an upfront cost of 30k+ from the user. If you are making money (below 100k usd )from this charge the 300 within your invoices, or as other anon stated launder. The only benefit of a token system is dulled by the expiry date so you can't hoard them for delivery dates.

    doesn't a regular monthly subscription already cost like around 30 bucks?
    do they really expect someone to pay 300$ for little more than a half month's worth of tokens?
