The current gen consoles were limited by the hardware and that's the reason why they can't do it.

Yep... well aware of that.

But DANO seems to think it's a recent request.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

im sorry RANKISMET, but if i havent personally seen all these requests for gun dlc from the much older titles, then as far as im aware they didnt exist.

What i dont understand is why your desperate to spend extra money on them?

Why is having them included in the season pass price so bad?

I'm not desperate to spend money on it... I am willing to.

If it's part of the season pass? Great.

If it's a separate micro-transaction? Great.

I just would like to see new weapons over the lifecycle of Ghosts.

It's a desire. Not a demand or even expectation... ya know, that whole entitlement thing. The entitlement mentality comes from the demand they MUST be a part of the season pass else be deemed to be a "rip-off".

If the price is too high... I won't get them. Give a good price point worth the ROI... and I'm in.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Technically the entitlement mentality comes from the demand they MUST be there full stop, Like ive said before, i dont want weapon dlc at all, to me as a customer it just makes much more sense for them to be included in the season pass, they would sell more season passes, and customers would only need to spend money once

That's a reasonable argument. I get that.

But I suspect it's not included for a few reasons:

  1. Generate sustained interest.
    • Instead of 4 peaks of interest for DLC packs. Micro transactions can be released independent of DLC packs and flatten out the ebb and flow of interest over time.
  2. New revenue streams.
    • ATVI has invested a lot of capital into Ghosts. Capturing low cost, high margin, on demand revenue is smart.

This doesn't imply "pay-to-win". It's optional.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Ran believes that anything that makes the game better in his eyes should be included if it can be no matter what it does to the game for other players.

In ghosts he wants extra functionality to the second screen devices and does not care if is unfair or unbalanced to anyone that does not have one.

One of the give me what I want because I want it types and too damn bad if others don't or cant have it too.

Showing your true colors a little bright today, huh?

  1. I believe if the game is made better it benefits everyone.
  2. In Ghosts... there IS second screen functionality. Your idea of balance and mine don't align but I do care less if not everyone can use it... they're doing it. Deal with it.
  3. Yeah... that's me. I want my own Bob lane.

It's touching you have such a grasp on my POV and posts. I only know you contradict anything people post to be contrary.

PS... here's proof of Second Screen. What it does hasn't be revealed. I hope it's cool. You're welcome.

Does it benefit everyone? No.Does it benefit those that have one and can take advantage of it? Yes, and that is the issue. Not every new toy or idea really needs to be in the game, nor does it benefit everyone if it is.

I know its there; but I doubt it will have the functionality that you were wanting in your original post about it. Will what has been seen about it be game effecting.. perhaps not as much as you hope for.

From some of your posts I would say yes. You want your own Bob lane. If I had my own Dragon lane I would have burst fire snipers and the perk double tap back in the game. Do I complain its not there, nope. Do I argue if someone says its not needed because it would be unfair, nope.

showing my true colors bright..not a chance.. showing my average colors bright.. you bet. I cant really show my true colors bright for Foxy does not really like it and has advised against it. Trust me. you would really know the difference if I was.

It's available to anyone.. therefore... anyone can take advantage of it. Don't have a second screen device? Welcome to "life isn't fair".

If you know it's there... then why try and make it sound like this something I've been demanding like a 5 year old wanting a cookie? Yeah... that would mean you couldn't be you.

You're simply the contrarian. Someone has a new idea? It's bad or been suggested. Want to see something added? It'll be OP and unbalanced. Want something removed? It should stay.

Yeah... you are. You're being passive-aggressive... lashing out at me in reply to someone else. I'll just say you're being a nozzle to you.
