@Buddahjcc watch the E3 showing it says BEFORE the preview that it can change due to being an alpha build. then it shows it the ENTIRE time at the bottom of the freaking screen.

Man that's like showing ads for a ferrari and in small print at the bottom of the screen it says "We may in fact give you a VW bug". No body buys "that was alpha footage" crap.

I'm just going to copy and paste my response from another thread.

 

As for people still complaining about Anthems downgrade from the E3 showing...GET OVER IT! I dont like how companies can do that at E3 showings either but this is not the first time it has happened. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. If you get fooled a third time then you are a foolish. Besides some of these people complaining can barely run the game the way it is now on their PCs or current console. If they didnt do a downgrade then I guess only people with 4k PCs would be able to play it hehe.

I don't blame any specific company for fake E3 videos; they're all to blame (except I haven't seen anything the likes of this from Zenimax or it's parent companies)

- I hadn't seen any E3 footage prior to my purchase; therefore my opinion of it being a rather low practice on all E3 parties seems rather unbiased.

What I rather dislike the most about the business practices is the seemingly hands-off approach executives have.

They demand a product and subsequently take 0 prerogative in over seeing development.

As a consequence these people can be fooled by a fake video and staged "dynamic game play" into approving a substandard product.

Had they actually been involved they'd known what they were experiencing was not an actual game, but rather a technological magic act and would have been pissed.

Dude, anything still in development is pretty much by default subject to change. That's what development is, lol...

He is trying to say it states clearly in the video that it is subject to change. I watched the video...didnt see it.. Would like to see where it says it. Nothing wrong with asking someone to back his/her own claims.

Gamers are really the most entitled "online community" ever. Do you already have your people together for a lawsuit that will fail emberassingly like the one against Hello Games?

The video was promotional content, marketing, showed stuff that was in development. Do you really think game development is always a pink kids birthday party where almost everything is good?

Seriously, gamers as a whole are a pretty interesting representation of humankind. Sometimes they just need something to hate on. One day it's Diablo 3, the other Call of Duty, well and now we have Bioware and EA. And the industry behind this hatemachine is steaming and generating profit after profit. Disgusting.
