You need to download a big day 1 update to play 2 and 3 is beyond stupid! People need to speak up now as this has to stop!

Thoughts?

Awful indeed.

But at this point I'm beginning to believe resistance is futile...

At the very least it's still a free market. Who wants to start a game company? Anyone with coding skills? Engineering skills? No reason we shouldn't make a console too.

Who can do bookkeeping? Who travels a lot? You can be a salesman.

Anyone willing to give up 20 hrs of free time each week without pay to give this a chance to get off the ground?

People need to protest so companies will learn!

Just a word of caution.....the link within the original post seems to infected with malware. Stupid me for clicking it. I'm not even sure why I clicked on it. It's the same story with a different game

I agree. It's dumb to get less than half the game on the disc. What if you want to sell it in 10 years? Boycott!

I'm more concerned about downloading large files over a slow/finicky connection.

They ought to changed their name to Actibitchion, Like EA they often have f***ed over us the gamer, This little thing happening to the Spyro Remaster does show how the days of buying on Disks are numbered and that it's only a matter of time before they are gone for good. :evil:

Same, glad it not coming out on Switch yet, unless that version requires the same rules which is dumb!

That is also a problem especially if you live in Wyoming, or other places with slow internet!

What worse is Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy required zero day 1 update even on the original 2017 PS4 version, so why Spyro it makes no sense!
