I say there might be, and we also have to look at things holistically. I think, for instance, that gamers respond in bad faith pretty often these days, and while games are more amazing than ever, gamers' expectations of what they get per dollar are stratospheric.

That's not my problem to solve. Perhaps they could try adjusting that expectation… by not hiding the price behind microtransactions and simply ask what it's worth. This business model is going to shoot the industry in the foot sooner or later. Musicians can tour. Game developers can't.

Yes, what can't go on forever will stop. We agree that there's a problem, and that we can't solve it. [handshake]
