I've always wondered how Filefront managed to get around the distribution rights with files and such considering the amount they charge. I'm certain that it breaks some sort of copyright which no-ones tried challenging. Still I supposed it would be claimed as being necessary to "help run the site". Strange that if thats the case then why all the popups and advertising. You dont' see other independant sites charging for file distribution on cd/dvd. Okay so not many actually do it, but let me check my maths: From my own experience of sending a cd overseas, it didn't cost any more than about 90p and the cost of the jiffy bag was about 50p. First class stamp is about 32p and the cover for the cd was less than 10p, so there has to be something fishy going on somewhere here.

But then like I said, no-ones ever challenged it.

Uhm, we don't sell people's files on CD or DVD now, MajorPayne.

These DVD's contain DEMO's made by companies and its all above board. If you don't want a DVD then don't buy one.

Uhhh, dude, FileFront is doing nothing illegal, they're just offering an easier way for those who aren't fortunate enough to have a fast inernet connection to download larger files and game demos, which are created by the game companies for free download.

FileFront never made any money off selling those files on CD anyways. All the proceeds went into the cd and shipping. Non-profit so to speak.

Every time a game is updated to a new version, all the old demos don't work.

big grin I will laugh when someone actually gets a demo DVD, and then the game updates and they can't watch any of the demos anymore.

#16 - Demo's get updated now do they?...
#18 - That isn't the title of this news post. It clearly says what it is in the title. Sorry for "conning" you though.

Again, if you don't want a DVD then don't buy one. If you have a 56k modem and really want to get your hands on these demo's then feel free to order a disc.

Blank DVD's are not really that cheap. The content has to be written on the discs and they have to be shipped. All in all a reasonable price smile

DVD's are awesome, as they can store more stuff, but you should have a CD service. Some people don't have DVD drives. Still, this is an awesome idea. And to number 16: File-Trekker is right. Besides, the point of getting the demo: To give you an Idea to either buy or not buy the game. Not just for you to use in place of the game. Plus, as file-trekker also mentioned (As well as number 17), Demo's DO NOT get updated. Usually. Finally, I'm sure you can do a 'Select demo's you want on this disk' thing. If not, i'm wrong. I mean no offense by this post. (this very, very, VERY long post.)

Are you Kidding peacewiz. "Blank DVD's are not really that cheap." I get them for 30 cents here in Australia so that's about 10p or 20cents US. If you can get a DVD for 20c US how come free demo's cost $15 US. That's a lot for shipping. Don't get me wrong before I got Broadband these deals were tempting but just plain too expensive.

Peacewiz. So if DVD blanks aren't that cheap then why can I buy a spool of 50 for 8.99 (aprox 17p per disc), and a box of 50 plain covers for about 2.99 (aprox 5p per cover). Postage via airmail to practically anywhere is no more than 1.50 at the very most. So I'm sorry but $15 (aprox 8.47 currently) for postage cost IS excessive (considering as well that the UK has probably one of the more expensive costings for postage), it wouldn't cost more than perhaps 3.00 (just over $5.30) and even that might be way over the actual cost.

I'll stick with PC Gamer, who give you a packed double-sided DVD with 10GB of demos, mods, videos, patches, galleries and utilities plus a magazine for 6/$11. Plus a subscription works out at roughly 3/issue.

Yeah but it's double density double-sided, so you can actually have up to 19GB on it.
