I understand what they mean when they say that the GUI of controller games is such a significant overhaul of a game that it deserves or has earned new purchase price. Such that, if you purchased a mouse and keyboard version of the game and now you want to play a controller version of the game then you need to repurchase the game with the controller GUI.


What if I have a console.. And I want to use mouse and keyboard? Why can't I choose to purchase the mouse and keyboard version of the game? Why choose to conflate 'console user' with 'controller' when most controllers allow you to plug in accessories including mouse and keyboard?

In fact... Many computers will now allow you to install or input controllers. Xbox. Or Playstation. Or Nintendo. Because, you know. what the world needs is more places to hide the x button... Lolz . No, but seriously...

I do understand the GUI re-development justifies a new purchase price.

But I do not understand forcing people to pay a new purchase price by refusing to honor the GUI they have already purchased.

I mean to say... I purchased some things (e.g., the Sims) on computer with mouse and keyboard funtionality. And then I also purchase same game on console and experience it with that functionlity. Why can't I then (at least) choose to play the game with keyboard and mouse from my console?

It's garbage when they try and drive up the prices of PC towers by halting or stalling or actively retarding functionality-- rather than selling them on their actual merits.

Just saying...
