Digital Downloads Have No Value

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 18, in the year of our Lord 2016--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is revealing a shocking fact that came from the PR representatives of video game companies. A PR contact recently admitted that digital downloads have no value whatsoever. To make this even more shocking is they have an entitlement mentality of a review expectation. Meaning they provide no value, and expect gaming websites to return to them a massive amount of value. It is like giving someone no resources and expecting a building to be erected in their honor. What are we slave labor to them? What makes this even worse is this PR member represents one of the millionaire to billionaire companies.

I have spent days analyzing this from a variety of angles. These millionaire and billionaire companies expect high dollar prices for digital downloads, even though they see them as having no real world value. Even worse the FCC demands video game websites reveal we are given free copies of the games. Note they are not technically free since they cost us money to download them, and it costs us money to house them. Then we have to pay money to have someone play them. We also pay someone to write the review. Finally it costs us money to upload the reviews to the Internet, and it costs us money to house the reviews. Don’t get me started on the costs of promoting our published works. Think about the FCC requiring we disclose we were given a game. That digital download has no value according to the people in PR. So we report we received no value, and we produce so much more value to the public and the video game industry. The companies do not even have to report on their taxes we spent all kinds of money making them money.

We have written in the past about the dangers of digital downloads. Now we find out that the people representing digital downloads see no value in them. Which means anyone who purchases a digital download is giving these millionaire and billionaire companies money for in essence nothing. Sure you get a game digitally. You can’t do anything with it but play it. No bartering, trading, or selling. No property rights, meaning no real world value. Is that what you want? Do you want to make them wealthier and wind up losing your own rights? Can you think of a better path than digital downloads? Is there way to keep your property rights on video game purchases?
