Valve recently were taken to coutt by Australia's anticompetitive organization, the judge stated valve never even tried to comply with the law. Industry is completely corrupt but IMHO Bethesda are just incompetent not malicious. In Australia the price of Bethesda games are artificially inflated by retailers and other parties by the equivalent of 1% of Bethesdas total world wide sales
Killing second hand gaming is new to Australia for consoles. Also the issue in Australia is they increased the price of the original falliut 4 game and season pass to more then the price of the goty that's slso overpriced
IMHO Bethesda just got greedy, They waited too long to release the goty. They rush out games before they are completed and never hold back a game that needs extra time to be developed, Uncharted 4 was delayed about a year but no one thinks of the delay now. I joke that Bethesda begins with the letter b just like buggy and brown
Generally I have had a lot of issues with Bethesda. They all involve me wanting to purchase their products but being blocked from doing so by stupid decisions made by Bethesdas marketing people or dodgy issues involving other parties. As a result I sold all my Bethesda merchandise a while ago and only intended to purchase Arkane made games from Bethesda
It's hard to sympathize with Bethesda when they complain they are finding it hard to break into new markets like Asia, They can't do this because particularly in the Asian market these customers do not tolerate buggy games
The games studios are not the problem it's the marketing department that are arrogant and lazy. They just go into another country, treat that country like crap then complian they are the victims when consumers don't buy their products
IMHO Bethesda will go bankrupt as they haven't had a new IP accept Prey that they rushed out, and again as I said earlier when I think of Bethesda I think "Bethesda starts with the letter b just like buggy and brown"
