I don't know... selling the games you review seems kind of strange.

Any thoughts on this?

I tend to agree that it feels a bit "off" so to speak.  I don't feel quite the same way as I do gamestop and their game magazine reviewing games and selling them.  I'm not sure why I'm less ok with one than the other, maybe it has something to do with the fact that you have to pay for the gamestop magazine that reviews the games that you can then buy from them.  Mayb its just an extra level of ugh.

I wouldn't say so. Its a MMORPG website ofc they will review games and sell them. Its how they make money, infact we should be thankful for it otherwise we wouldn't have the website. :)

But I can understand how it might sound strange but its money is money, sadly.

LOL- No its not a scam- Its a "kickback"... Like linking to Amazon and getting a small % of sales.

Nothing underhanded. Conflict of interest? Perhaps. Review effecting? Probably. But who honestly trusts the reviews here (no offence mmorpg) anyhow? Its still the best site for discussion but we all must keep in mind how money (via advertising or other ways) will always trump "reality" for any buisness.

Because it is. You must be one of those people that thinks the world does not revolve around money when in reality it does. This isnt the 1800's were people do things out of the likeness of their hearts. Were just not in those times anymore. Even free stuff cost some sort of money or kickback. Just look at every f2p game. Sure it's free to play, but not free to enjoy.

It means they've contracted with gamesrocket.com to provide a mmorpg.com named link to the gamesrocket.com game selling website. It also means they get a small percentage of any purchase made on those linked web pages. If you want, you can think of it as contracted referral link.

I would think the europeans would be loving this since it's a tie-in from an american website to a european business. Looking at the comments above all the critical ones are from people in the supposedly capitalistic U.S.A.

And now everyone knows about the reason behind all the super positive reviews about everything.

For that reason alone, I would never, ever spend even one cent to buy a product through this site.

I don't think you fully understand capitalism from your comments.

 

The absolute beauty of our system is that it allows companies to do exactly this (it's obviously legal...) and it allows the consumers to decide the the behavior is appropriate.

 

In the past, there has been much debate about the appropriateness of all the adds placed on a site that is reviewing those same games.  Now we have gone a step further and actively profit from sales.

 

So I don't know personally...  in a perfect world obviously this shouldn't happen.  But recently the site owner has said that ad-blockers were costing him a lot of money and this placed the site in jeopardy.  This is my favorite MMO site, so I guess I can live with it as an exchange for the (literally) thousand of hours of fun I have had on here but it will obviously cast a shadow of suspicion on articles and reviews.

Uh no! They have been around for years and the store is another way to make money/revenue. Just like half or so of the website real estate is for advertising. Do i blame them? not fully but I do find it annoying to have all those ads. It's becoming too intrusive of the articles in my opinion.

mmorpg.com is not selling anything, it is sold by gamesrocket.com. This site only provides discount vouchers, same way they provide beta keys, etc..

What a fail thread.
