Epic Fail
Uber's management team have deliberatly courted controversy to gain publicity for their TA clone..

'There's no such thing as bad publicity', says one. The same individual later congratulates himself for his innovative new business model. I wonder if their self satisfaction will stay with them after Uber goes into receivership?

The gaming community does not like to be exploited. Uber have sacrificed their future success and alienated a huge porportion of potential customers in the process. I will boycott this game as will 1000's of others.

I look forward to their demise and hope it serves as an example.

Gamers might not like to be exploited but they sure do fall for it all the time.

I can't think of a boycott of a game that actually worked. Ever. Even Spore sold millions and gamers whined for ages about that one. Same with the new SimCity. Sucks, but it's true.

As romantic as it may be to think of people who play games to be united with a single catchall, "gamers" can be anything - from the intellectual who enjoys a full experience, the dudebro's who survive on an exquisitely balanced diet of Dewski's and Doritos while playing the latest Madden/NFL/CoDBlOpBF/whatever, to little Suzy who's trying to be the best groomer she cann be in Barbie's Pony Kingdom Extreme. Trying to get them all to boycot a product is impossible, if not madness.

I've played both MNC and SMNC and am definately interested in PA (More because of a Supreme Commander style rather than TA), but as usual, I'm waiting till it's on sale, after which they can drop support for it like a brick for all I care - if the developers don't care for their product, why should we care for them by buying a game at full price?
