View Full Version : Seems like UBI ****ed off their customers

UBI broke the #1 rule in marketing. "Never **** off your customer base." They did this before the game even came out. Just because you slap a name like Tom Clancy to a game does not mean it will sell well.

I am sure UBI has already calculated their losses by being bias during the demo release. You may also want to remember this UBI. You have to actually calculate the fact that some of the customers you have, will also be future customers. Put that in your calculations and determine the losses. Because this game is not off to a good start.

Notice the happiness of the game to the hatred of it in less then 2 weeks.

It's not the PS3/PC demo release date I'm annoyed with. It doesn't change the full game's release date either way. It's the stuff that won't be implemented in the full version that sucks.

Imagine being a gamer who has purchased numerous Ubi games over the years only to have said games change from what they were to something else. That is me and I am not alone. Ubi has a way of dumping previous customers and not caring if we get a game that meets our expectations. The last Ubi game I bought was iL2 1946 and may or may not buy the Silent Hunter IV Gold Edition.

hahah please don't try to fill in the blanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif. In any case the blank really is a synonym for angry.

Regardless of what platform would of came out first I would still be making this post. They should of released the demo on all platforms on the same day regardless of where you live. They claim to support PC, PS3, and XBox 360, yet they release a demo for XBOX 2 weeks early???

Now I know a lot of people are saying, "who cares it only a demo." Which is fine, but in my own opinion this game will have little support from UBI after its official release. They only want one thing which is money, they could careless what the community actually thinks of their game. Which stinks because I remember a time where games like game play actually meant something. Where they would spend years developing specific games.

I may use a 360/pc (want a ps3 to complete my collection mwhahahahhaa) but I agree on the fact that games should be spent years in development not just half made peices of crap they are selling at full price...
if a game needs a patch or has THIS many complaints about it... they should consider developing it a little more and not worry about getting it out as fast as possiple..
