If you’re like me, you’re getting just a bit sick of every game that’s released having a huge chunk of content cleaved out and sprinkled across a bunch of different retailers as “preorder bonuses,” so much so that you literally have to be missing content unless you order four or five copies of the game.
This picture imagines what that theory would look like if you translated it to movies. Different scenes and clips for different theaters, and there’s no way you can see them all unless you want to play triple.
I suppose movies had other ways to bilk us out of cash like lackluster 3D and IMAX, but the principle is there, and this is essentially what game companies are doing. I remember when the only way to unlock “bonus” content was to beat the game on higher difficulties or discover easter eggs. Now get off my lawn.
