I suppose Google paid a hefty "fee" for them to release it together with console and PC. What they didn't anticipate is the massive backlash they would get.. Thing is most of the executives that would profit from this money probably didn't even get the backlash and the crunching devs just testing and whatever for another platform are getting the max of it.
As with all companies

AAA games are like blood diamonds these days I think. The human cost for developing these games are becoming too significant.

That's the reason I'm more into indie games these days. Indie has provided more amount of entertainment than AAA games since 2-3 years

Yeah, AAAs scope has become larger than the workforce can handle. This results in developer burnouts and crunch. Next-gen games are going to be $70 but still there is more developer crunch. I think $60 should be the maximum price and games should have lower scope to match that price and avoid crunch.

Reality is its gonna be 70 USD + cut down content which will be introduced later as 12 USD DLCs.

@007 I caught one of the Keanu Reeves motion capture videos. Won't lie was very interesting to say the least. Atleast to see his perspective on things and this game.

I am not sure if that's a good thing or bad. I mean a lot of players will very likely get bored and sales might drop pretty quickly once the gameplay streams become public and people have seen everything there is to see about the game.

In this day and age, public's attention span is not very good.

And this much play time is after they have reduced the story line significantly.

I think this game came 3 years too late into the market. Let's see.
