Safety as DLC? Motorcycle Airbag vest will not deploy if you miss a payment

This sounds fucked.

This advice doesn't work. This has been given as a 'solution' since mobile mictrotransactions and crappy DLC practices got invented. People are going to pay for it no matter how stupid it is. Sure, maybe not this specific item, but if subscriptions and DLC becomes more common in cars (already seen in Teslas and BMWs) then people won't care, they'll pay for it no matter how stupid it is.

Last I checked, in the past 15 years or so of gaming, I haven't once bought or needed to buy a microtransaction that I wasn't willing to get. Also, I'm not sure how two brands of cars allowing people to pay to unlock certain features is a new thing? Satellite radio has been like that for over a decade. In which case, the same principals apply, if you don't like something, don't buy it.

Yeah, and your personal experience is obviously representative of the entire population including children and problem gamblers.

 

🙄

 

Clearly, game companies keep shoving microtransactions into full price games because nobody buys them.

Until this becomes the norm and you can't not buy it if you want to drive a car.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

It is not the company's responsibility to baby sit people who have addictions to spending money. A fool and his money are easily parted.
It's also on parents to monitor their kid's activities. If their child spends $40,000 on skins in a game, and they don't realize until months later, it's their fault.

It doesn't have to be $40k for it to be predatory and ridiculous. It's doesn't matter if the parents know, it's still predatory marketing directed at vulnerable audiences. Even if the parent tells them "no" the kid is still going to feel bad for missing out and pressured to spend their own pocket money.

Please explain what scam you are talking about. Last I checked, offering microtransactions isn't a scam.
1) The person gets what they paid for.
2) The product is advertised accurately.

It doesn't matter how much it is. As a parent, your child should not have open access to your money.
When I was a kid (before I had my own income) I would ask my parents to buy me something (Game, DLC, Expansion, etc). Then they would either buy it for me, or tell me no.
It's called being responsible.

I don't care, the argument you made can be used to defend scams just as easily. If you blame the victim you can justify almost anything. You could also theoretically avoid being murdered by carrying a gun and being trained in martial arts, that doesn't mean murder should be legal because if you let someone murder you it's your own fault.

I don't care about your personal anecdotal experience in a time when the videogame market was drastically different from now. There are large scale studies on both loot box gambling and microtransaction peer pressure that are far more reliable than a random person's childhood tale.

A kid "feeling bad" isn't much of an argument. Kids need to learn that they can't get everything they want. It's called parenting.

Have you never had a happy meal? Each set of toys has like at least 10 different toys to get the kids to buy more than one. And by the time they go 10 times, the next set of toys are released.

“Critical” is the key word though.  There’s a group of insurance agencies that put out safety verification tests which have done really a lot for automobiles. They’ve effectively mandated door bars and integral roll cages and air bags and seat belts and a bunch of other stuff.  Even headlights and how high bumpers can be.  The thing about motorcycles is theyre more or less just death traps to start with.  If they mandated safety features for those things the first thing they would do is ban them.  A lot of insurance companies don’t even OFFER motorcycle insurance. 

True. But also true of all small cars.

 

To quote someone who drove a big-rig until he retired from it, "They will bury you in it"

 

Mopeds, Motorcycles, and small 2-door smartcar/bug type of cars, are literately unsafe to drive outside of rural roads. Cities are usually fine for the small vehicles as long as you avoid the truck routes.

It’s a scam if the user thinks they are getting something other than what they pay for when they pay for it.  That is basically the definition of a scam: making the buyer think they’re getting something other than what they are buying.
 

People who conflate  not usefully prosecutable with not wrong are not precisely wrong, but they certainly aren’t right either. The two are different things.
  There are a couple of scams with this:

1. If you add up the monthly payments it’s not less expensive it’s MORE expensive. So hidden knife scam

2. It is possible to get away with murder in the US if you arrange it right and are rich enough to be able to do so.  The first time someone dies wearing one of these when it doesn’t inflate there’s going to be a wrongful death suit which the company will eventually lose.  It won’t even be close.  It will take a couple years though during which the people who effectively killed this person can hide their money and protect it from being seized.  The company will die and a bunch of people will lose their jobs, but the people who made the money from making life safety stuff DLC? They’ll have gotten rich by risking other people’s lives.  This thing is death and  horror waiting to happen for everyone but the company owners.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

No, that's not what a scam is. What the user thinks has nothing to do with something being a scam or not. It's all about how something is advertised.

Perfect example is the people selling pictures of RTX 3090's on Ebay for like $2000. That's not a scam, because in the description they clearly state it's just a photo and not a real graphics card.

It's the user's fault for being lazy and not reading.

Most of them? The key here is “clearly stated” there’s all kinds of ways to obfusticate that.  The most popular one is the TOS box.  This isn’t about micro transactions though they’re generally not good as a group.  It’s about making a life safety device DLC and potentially shutting it off.

I don't get this, so just before you crash you pull the cord? Im pretty sure 90% of crashes are not planned, how would you know? Thats so dumb.

I don’t have to.  You made a statement which had little to do with the thread though it might have actually worked in the unpopular opinions one.  Most people here have had to deal with micro transactions and know they’re mostly abusive crap.   Your argument is not actually about micro transactions though it’s about TOSes and legalese.  My statement was that if a loophole is found to legally abuse someone with, it doesn’t make it acceptable, it merely makes it unprosecuatable.  And not prosecuted and not wrong are not the same thing. You want to dig into specific example minutia that has nothing to do with the concept, and you want to waste my time to do it.  You’re argument is “I demand an hour of your time or I hereby declare myself correct” No.  

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
