A lot of the rest ...

A lot of the rest of that article is interesting, but that seems badly sourced - though I will say America 's Army the game is still being updated even now, and there 's even an eSports league for it, I guess. r n r nAlso, I still claim the ...

Having worked in AAA 15-20 ...

Having worked in AAA 15-20 years ago, and left partly because of some things that could arguably have been ameliorated by unionization working hours, in particular , I 'm very sympathetic to the argument. Unfortunately, I think 15-20 years ago was the time that this move would have been much ...

FWIW, I think that '32,000 ...

FWIW, I think that '32,000 copies sold ' stat is pretty misleading - it was a median as of 2015, but that 's including massive lifetime numbers for games, and a lot of games being in bundles too. My impression is that a brand new Steam game launching in 2016 ...

Thanks - we 've updated the story to reflect these edits, and also added another data point: A Gamasutra-authored survey conducted in early 2014 suggested that solo indie developers earned an average income of 11,812 in 2013, down 49 percent from 2012 s 23,130 average . r n r nAs ...

Oh dear We 've fixed that particular piece of hilarity, and apologies.

I 've been a fan of 'writing about games and not just for review ' for a decade plus now - as you guys might/might not know, I used to commission cheaply, but it was paid a lot of criticism for the now defunct GameSetWatch website, including a number of ...

Yes and no on the ...

Yes and no on the 'lack of research ' on Sony - yes, because it 's true that I haven 't had a chance to check out Morpheus in sufficient detail. But I would also say that Morpheus doesn 't seem to be handing out devkits to 'average ' thirdparty ...

Things like this do concern me, actually. Whether you agree with GTA V 's subject matter or not, you should still be able to have access to the game to make your own mind up.

Obviously, if some games are seeing a slight decrease in sales in the longer-term, probably by not being recommended or curated a lot, some games are going to see a slight increase. Perhaps more than slight Maybe Mini Metro will have a longer-term boost because of this after all It ...

Not sure what it is in this survey, but I know CA WA together make up as much as 60 of game development in the U.S. - so I guess it makes sense that it would trend in that direction
