Time spent on a product does not have an effect on its value

    I'm reading some responses to the $15 map pack coming out for MW2 and I cannot help but point out most of the people that play this game are retarded sheep.

    The most common defense I am reading is "I spent days playing this game, I'm getting my moneys worth."

    How much time have you spent on your laptop/computer? If you spend everyday online does that suddenly justify a $20,000 laptop?

    If you have a favorite movie that you watch over and over again, does that justify the movie costing $50?

    If you use the same soccer ball every weekend, should this soccer ball suddenly cost $80?

    The people that are actually going to spend $15 don't mind getting raped in the ass (and like it) or are fucking retarded.

    If you spend every day on the computer, then yes I believe it justifies spending an exorbitant amount of money on a laptop/desktop.

    this. but my point is that the people paying for this shit are idiots.

    son, no doubt. But the value of the laptop/desktop does not go up by the amount you use it. In fact, in that case it goes down.

    Sure thing bro, but since my time is more valuable unfortunately I'm going to have to pay you nothing since I also read your post and responded.

    I'd rather get rehashes of 2 existing maps with another game type (a la BC2) for free, than pay $15 for new maps.

    maps are more like an intangible asset, a laptop is a durable good, trying to compare the valuation of both is stupid

    It's perfectly valid logic, and if the player is willing to pay a premium, who are you to judge him?

    Everyone who owns MW2 on the PC paid 10$ more than they otherwise would for any other game... but if they spent hundreds of hours playing it, I think the price per hour ratio more than justifies the price for entry.

    You're free to disagree. I personally will not be purchasing the map pack, but that's mostly because I don't anticipate playing MW2 for any considerable length of time anymore, given all of the new games I have to play.
