NCSCAUG Interview with Omniscience : Comment 11 of 37ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 9 (Tigger):
Well it is the basic flaw of the DE (apart from it's technical shortcomings):

AInc wants money for the SDK.
AInc wants money for the player.
AInc wants money for every copy of every piece of SW sold for it.
and even worse:
AInc wants to control who sells a piece of SW to whom.

Now this buisness model may work when you are Sony and have allready sold
millions of PS2s, but it just won't work when you are a startup, with not single
working partnership to one of the big guys.

Want to argue that ? Than answer this:

Why is it that after >3 years and 3000 SDKs sold, all we have seen are a dozen or
sp medicore C64-style games ?
Why is it that the one advertized as the "killer-app" is over 2 years old (Planet Z) ?
Why is it that not a single piece of HW has been sold with DE preinstalled.
Why is it that M$/CompUSA have nver restocked after selling the first (small) batch ?
Why is it that these games are only available in one obscure web-shop (well and
sometimes on flea-bay) ?
