              No you disingenuous gay, Donkey Kong nes isn’t worth 142.83 today. Factorio isn’t worth 5 extra dollars now. The product is finished, the forces of the dollar drag it down with it not stay the same. It isn’t fucking static. The reason The Mona Lisa is worth more today is because there is only one of it. Gold is finite, Factorio is goddamned infinite making it actually worthless.

                That's not true at all. Access is limited regardless of how much it can be duplicated, creating an incentive to pay for it. This incentive in turn creates value as the value of anything on a market is whatever anyone is willing to pay for it.
                So if people buy it for $35 it's worth $35

    Today, on Tuesday 24th January 2023, I will not be buying your game at the base price of $30.

    This is a decision which is based on my evaluation on the value of your game. The max I'd be willing to pay at this current juncture to purchase your game is about $3.50 USD dollars

    Don't worry, it's just trannies kicking up a storm because the dev blew them out on twitter.

    The real sad losers are the ones that refuse to buy games until they're 75% off or something and the dev said from day 1 it's NEVER getting a sale and in fact it'll only go up in price as more features are added.

    Some cucks literally cannot handle a product gaining value, it's whatever the opposite of FOMO is.

        No, being a cuck is waiting 10 years to buy a game and then complain it only went up in price, when that's what the dev said from the very start.

        The game never goes on sale, NEVER, that's the promise he made to people buying it early. Of course mega soys like you took at that personally and rather waited a literal decade in the faint hope that the game will go on a sale at some point so you finally don't feel like you missed out all this time (you did).

        Then the dev rugpulled you and you're now mad at the realization that you waited all this time for nothing.

        You're an impotent petulant child kicking and stomping because they're not getting their free dindu gibs.

        Pirate the game if you're such a colossal pussy that you work yourself up to crippling anxiety when you see a game you want, but it's not going on sale. Nobody cares.

        But you're not fooling anyone that you're a weak pathetic excuse for a human being for crying about this online.

                The limits are drawn by the consumer. That's why EA was getting shat on left and right and that was a good thing. Game devs will put on a price increase they think they can get away with and go higher from there and suddenly games cost 30% out of nowhere and the cheapest mid range gpu is 1000$.

                It comes down in price because its old, same as literally everything else. You pay more if you really really want it immediately, and pay less if you're willing to wait.
                Raising the price over time is maximum judaism, literal usury mindset.

                I'm talking about inflating the price and put it on sales so ~~*they*~~ can maximize the profits by scamming whales, while also grab the wallets of small fishes (such as you) when the price is right for those small fishes.

                You pay less for older games because they're generally dated, fun but the graphics and other aspects have notable datedness, as well as becoming buggier on newer machines. It's completely fair to sell it for less later down the line, at the time it was new and novel

      That would be hilarious. They sold 500k copies last year. At $30 a pop that's $15M spent on Factorio, of course part of that goes to game stores and payment processors and banks and whatever the fuck else, but it's still a very large amount of money for a small company. I don't see how they could possibly run out of funding.

          Not every game is for you. If you think it's worth 20 and it's sold for 35, then just don't buy it. If you think a game is too hard and needs an easy mode, just don't buy it.

              I was hoping to with the raise in income I started getting this year. Then all of a sudden rent goes up for the second year in a row (never went up successively like that before), gas for cooking/heating jumped massively so suddenly my winter gas bills are $100+ more, electric usage is down yet the bill just went up for the 3rd time within the past year, food prices ain't going down. Suddenly the extra money I bring in is just instantly gone. Hell, I'm going to end up with far less "for me" money a month than I had previously despite making more.

          However people like you just open up your mouth and tell others that it's okay to just shit in your mouth it's only $5 more. This only leads to them raising prices higher and higher because in the end they know there would be retards like you willing to pay higher and higher prices since nobody's challenging them.

    IMO the devs have an absolutely retarded strategy for selling a game on steam. Especially one with coop. Getting my friends to buy a game to play with me is like pulling teeth unless it's on some kind of sale. People do not want to pay full price for games on steam. Now they're raising the price lol.
    They probably could have sold twice as many copies if they did even 15% off a few times a year.

    Factorio is a fairly niche game for autists so the devs probably think they won't sell a fuckload of copies anyway, but I'm inclined to believe other indie devs will be more interested in maximizing sales and word of mouth.

    Who says the game was ever worth $30 to begin with? The price is made up by the dev, he could have released it at $100 and lowed it to $30 the next day, he could have released it for $5 and increased the price by $5 every day forever.
    The only thing that matters is if you want to play the game and if your willing to pay the current asking price. If you want it and are happy with the price buy it, if you want it and don't want to pay the asking price pirate it or don't play it.

                How are you liking renting your heated seats in “your” car? Or the subscription service to allow you to access all the horse power the engine can actually do?

                I wouldn't pay for a heated seats subscription because I don't think it would be worth my money. The difference is I also don't show up to a BMW car meet with tears in my eyes screaming about it and telling them to kill themselves because I'm not a fucking child.

      The only reason this is getting shit on is because it's a digital purchase, when people see a game going up in price they think of tendie games where there's not a single line of code being added to the game after release and it keeps the same price because the executives decided it and nobody actually likes that.

      No shit I could buy it, I love the idea of supporting a ""infinite content"" game if I liked it, too bad the dev didn't let me know this when he is increasing the price and I'm only made aware of it after a legion of internet freaks defend the extremely poor choice of words and promotion of this price increase, if Dwarf Fortress could convince the average redditor to pay for it there's no reason why this game couldn't, it's all a matter of selling the perks of what happens when you support a game like this and not a thinly veiled "economy bad" sob story.

        This isn’t a matter if opinion you slime. You are actively making the world worse by enabling this shit. Enjoy paying 300 for the next Pokemon or paying 75 for the nes port of Donkey Kong.

    Game in january 2023 will be 2x as expensive as in october 2020, when I bought it. Explain to me how is it "adjustment for inflation", ESPECIALLY when they added fuck all to the game for the past 3 years?

      Basically they increased the price as the value of the dollar went down. Thanks for asking.

        Did the dollar lost twice of its 2020 value? That's news to me.

          He sold the game for less as a perk for buying it early.
          Now he has adjusted the full price for inflation, because he wants to.

            Factorio released in August 2020 on Steam (at least that's what the store page tells me).
            I've bought it in October 2020 after it released on Steam. How is it "early"?
            No. I've bought it normally, not in EA. There was no "perk". He's just raising the price, because he doesn't know basic economy principles and will nuke his revenue.

    I wonder how many extra sales they made solely due to the 24/7 threads made about this.
    If I ever release a game I can only hope that I’ll be able to attract similar sound and fury.

          A trend of being self inflated egotists. If the was Gone Home pulling this shit Ganker would be on a united front. It literally comes down to the fact that these autists can’t cope that their hero became a villain, like they always do.

              Yes they fucking would. This whole thing is an example of no bad actions, only bad targets. Look at all the idiots screaming chud for daring to speak up about this. They see this as a continuation of a fight everybody else, including myself, had forgotten about. I don’t know why I would expect the zoomer riddled corpse of Ganker to have any standards.

                Is the quick and dirty of it. V has no nuance.

                the reason Factorio popped off in the first place is resetera tried to get the dev canceled for saying something they thought was transphobic and Ganker swung in for the rescue and the dev didn’t back down. The same with Ion Fury and Ogay and Heart Beat for putting their game on sale for 41% because the hard left lesbian devs hate trannies. And yet again another person Ganker worshipped has bit them in the ass but they are afraid to fight back.
