Ubishit microstransactions made more money than digital game sales.

archive.fo/xCSSQ

After a quiet start to its fiscal year, Ubisoft is reporting stronger-than-expected sales in its second-quarter at the company's mid-year financial check-in.
Ubisoft says digital revenue is already up 69 percent year-over-year, coming in at €342.6 million (~$396.6 million) for the first two quarters combined.
But what's especially interesting about the company's digital dealings this time around is that, for the first time, microtransactions brought in more revenue than digital game sales alone.
Ubisoft says that player recurring investment, or the sale of in-game items, DLC, season passes, and subscriptions, was responsible for €175 million (~$202.6 million) during the first two quarters of the year, making up 51 percent of total digital income. That category of digital sales alone jumped by 83 percent year-over-year.

I hope you like those lootboxes goyim, because shit's about to get a lot worse.

But what games have lootboxes that ubisoft owns? I seriously don't know of any. Siege has boxes but you can't buy even buy them with real money if you wanted. Is there so much DLC now that it is eclipsing the entry price of the game?

This is a a pretty common MO for vidya game companies now.

I know that for Jagex, the main revenue for their game doesn't come from the monthly memberships but from the microtransactions in RS3.

Expect it to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better. Conole companies saw the absolute killing that mobile """"games"""" were making off microtransactions and now they want in.

Expect "You have died. But if you buy 500 Gamecoins, you can kill the boss now." Coming soon.

If Ubisoft was doing fine they wouldn't be in danger of getting bought out by Vivendi. Considering all their games underperformed (Origins sold as badly as Syndicate on the PC, and likely on consoles too) I think they are in deep shit. When Far Cry 5 bombs as well they're done.

In the end this becomes a problem of consumers being retarded sheep who buy the most stupid things a game can throw at them. We can all rail on these publishers, deservedly so, for using these practices, but in the end it's the consumers who need a kick in the ass.

Of course they'll double down. The problem with that is that most developers -especially those who rely on said whales- will happily go along trying to stamp out 'toxicity' for fear of losing sales.

Would a company ever be honest about making a loss?
Would a company ever lie about how well they did?

I do believe- lying or not- there is a hard push for "games as a service" and lootboxes. Thankfully it helps throw up warning signs to not support those companies. It also gives (good) indies more chance to shine. AAA develop games around lootboxes indies can develop whatever they like. Indies become the go-to for variety of gameplay.
I also think Lootboxes should be treated as gambling, but it's the same exploitation of loopholes places like Japan use to get around their strict anti-gambling laws. So because the palms are so greased I don't expect it to change anytime soon.

If you want to kill Lootboxes- mock them.
People are more afraid of being mocked than they are enduring the thing they'd be mocked for. They're afraid of being discovered they bought a bad game, more than playing a bad game. So either they don't buy, or rabidly defend it to justify their purchase (hence fan-boys).
Make memes about how everyone who buys them is a tween who wants to make his e-boner bigger because he's shit at vidya and can't get good. Show humiliating videos of someone screaming with joy over a digital knife or getting mad and smashing up shit. Like that "It's not enough I won, it's showing everyone online I did" meme. Mock them for a lack of skill, and an obsession with attention.
Then folks will be less keen to buy out of shame. Even if they know no-one will ever know they're playing it, the risk of becoming that meme scares them. You can't stop morons and whales, but you can hinder normalfags boosting user numbers and giving free advertising. And all that'll be left are morons that act as bad PR against the game itself.

What does it say even when someone is a faggot like him or Jim- that they're still against all this shit. I'd probably still be watching TB if he wasn't so fucking vicious against his own audience (boiling down to "if I think you have these beliefs- leave").
Use him as the voice of reason RE: consumers when redpilling normalfags IMO. Though, mockery is just as good. Like the webm:
Comparing the screaming and attention whoring to that of women would probably put more men off lootboxes than a detailed explanation of how they're being fucked and fucking up an industry.

This is fucking awesome, thanks man.

I knew him from WCRadio days. He was pretty chill when he was younger but once he met Genna(Landwhale wife turn SJW) he became egotistical as shit.
btw how he met "Eriyanna"/Genna was over WoW/WCRadio where she sent him fake pics of herself and lied about being pretty. This went on for a few years iirc until they met in RL and he found out she had lied and was a gigantic hambeast. He was to cucked to fuck her off so he just accepted her and her son, Orion. Not to mention he used to arrogantly claim he had the 'lionshare' of downloads/listens to his podcasts and when pushed to prove it another host revealed he was actually 3rd on the site. Not 1st.
He used to post personal emails on his forums for his fans to laugh at and didn't even hide the person's identity. 6 months before wow radio shut down he basically just dumped ownership/leadership and everything else into the hands of the rest of the hosts. Spent the rest of his time on building/preparing for "Cynical Brit" rebrand and website. He and Jesse basically walked away from it without a care and then competed over shit until getting together for TGS and other colabs. btw Jesse Cox and TB met while doing WoW Machinima voice acting. TB took him under his wing, gave him a show on wowradio.

Not to mention he was a colossal wanker and always has been. Go try find his "High intellect" post from the SA gaschambers. It's an essay on why he was better than some asshole on the forums. he got ripped apart by goons.

It's hip to hate him on Holla Forums because of his leftist behaviour now, but the true horror is how he wasn't always this shit.
No user he has always been this shit he just hasn't had the audience or platform to be honest about it.

How do I know? I was there during most of WCRadio/WoWradio and knew most of the staff, moderators and hosts personally.

Nah shit is going better, because what normal person is still so stupid to buy Ubisoft games? Just ignore them.
Also now that Ubisoft goes for whales aka gambling addicts, their consumer base is becoming even more niche and vulnerable to financial troubles.
And the more crazy they get, the more likely it is that some countries will include their practices into anti-gambling laws.

If Ubisoft was doing fine they wouldn't be in danger of getting bought out by Vivendi.
Hmm. No?
You do know that Vivendi sold 67% of Acti-Bli to buy 25%+ of Ubisoft (and 60+% of gameloft).
(So far the only logical explanation to selling the N°1, by far, vidya publisher to buy the 10th is: Vivendi CEO was bullied by a Guillemot when he was little or something equally as grown up.)
If your company is publicly traded and someone comes in drops a gigantic stack of cash to buy enough parts… it has nothing to do on how you're company is doing.

More than likely this is all jst because their games were flops this year and the idiots buying them aee huge enough idiots to buy the dlc too.

The Squid Sisters amiibos are pretty decent figures for the price. They're definitely lower quality than proper figures or even nendoroids but they're also substantially cheaper (as long as you're not getting scalped).

it's the same exploitation of loopholes places like Japan use to get around their strict anti-gambling laws.
And that's why gambling laws were recently tightened in Nipland to make it less profitable, forcing many dead pachinko companies back into actual vidya. Unforunately, rather than a return to form, they simply brought their anti-consumer practices with them when they returned.

Probably, I noticed a lot of these nu-males SJW types turn out to be real pieces of shit to the women and trans they're supposedly "protecting." So it wouldn't surprise me when we find out later that total shitstain abused his wife or something. Apparently she got pretty pissed at him during his Trump shitfit. What I find funny is that the toaster tweet, after people started accusing him of being a hypocrite, he deleted the tweet to erase his past, but its on archives everywhere.

As for on-topic. Lootboxes is just gonna become more of a problem later down the road, and what aggravates me is that people agree that they're bad, but then turn around and say "but im so used to it by now." and not do anything about it. They're so used to getting raped up the ass they see it as a normal thing now

SJWism is more of a symptom, I think. They want to be percieved as morally righteous, but they lack the backbone to stand up for their own beliefs or the willpower to actually adhere to them. So they erase their "wrong" opinions so that the rest of the cult supports them and makes them feel good about themselves. Notice how they don't even have the courage to admit that they made a mistake, they try to erase all evidence of their wrongdoing instead.

False.
The existance of this site is the physical proof to the contrary.
And besides, there is a fuckton of people like you everywhere, things are so fucking bad that the normalfags and outsiders browsing pol that are new and dumb enough to go to a public meetup are fucking black and mexican and asian, those are mainstream normalfags.
Whole of mainstream social internet is completely censored, it's pretty real.

Notice how they don't even have the courage to admit that they made a mistake, they try to erase all evidence of their wrongdoing instead.
To be fair, loads of people on both sides of the culture war are so caught up in their ideology they they don't accept apologies for anything, ever. One wrong move and you're done. This is more true on the left because of their cult mentality, but it's still a common occurrence on the right.
Oh, he made a post saying he questioned the wage gap in 2007, what a sexist. Nobody can support him again ever.
Oh, he made a post saying he didn't outright hate niggers in 2007, what a cuck. Nobody can support him again ever.
An apology doesn't fix anything in the eyes of these people, even though they themselves would want mercy if they made a mistake. To them it's a permanent admission of your "true colors," even if you specifically say that you don't agree with it anymore. Because obviously, people never change their minds about things and can't develop has human beings. It's really best if you can just prevent it from coming to light in the first place, no matter who or what you are. All those cringy posts you made in your teens are just waiting to be found.

Honest people don't understand vice very well. You are naturally led to believe there is something haughty and puritanical, in socjus that bash the sins of others.

But in reality, people convert to cults in order to erase their crimes and make themselves clean. Those judging your sins are the worst scum, dressing clean robes.

No it fucking isn't. It's simple, the immediate fate of gaming is stratification. We're going to see a split between big money triple A games that are full of microtransaction bullshit and smaller more traditional games without them.

The core audience should only be buying these smaller titles, the big triple A's aren't for us and haven't been for a long time. They are mediocre slop designed to milk the casuals of as much money as possible.

I cringe every time I see someone talking about buying the newest triple A game. There are plenty of games out there to play right now, why are you giving money to companies for absolute shit? Don't even pirate it, it's a waste of your time.

I feel like Ubisoft is essentially admitting their games aren't selling well enough on their own to the point they have to use DLC and lootboxes to actually make a profit. It isn't really surprising considering Ubisoft's recent offerings.

In an ideal world, yes, we'd have a situation like in the modern car industry where cars for the masses from Ford coexist with cars for people who love driving from Porsche. Things are different in the game industry, though., because any time a small dev gets a hit, it's immediately bought up by a huge publisher like EA, commercialized, and raped of everything that made it good. 1 or so thousand people here boycotting shit games isn't going to change that.

it's not a question of whether or not these things are important or not they are ,it's the little matter of making a career bitching about these exact things only to simply overlook them just for that one game that lacked them and give the game a recommendation anyways because you are a sellout whore posing as a "consumer advocate"
read before responding next time

Also this thread and the direction it's going is the precise reason why threads dealing with e-celeb bullshit is a bannable offence in this place

A couple points that show why the OP is exaggerated somewhat:

1. While it says that digital sales increased 69%, it leaves out that physical sales increased 65% over last year. Plenty of Ubisoft’s releases last year bombed, and they’ve done much better this year.

2. The larger portion of digital sales being micro transactions is largely due to Rainbow Six, which is still growing at a good pace, but proportionally less of that will come from initial sales of the game because the game price is much lower now.

3. Even these micro transactions are no replacement for new game sales. About 20% of Ubisoft’s entire earnings in this report came from their Switch titles, which is just a rerelease of Rayman Legends and Mario + Rabbids. Those two titles alone made around as much money as all the micro transactions across all of Ubisoft’s games did.
