"It's an insane amount of money," Molyneux said. "This is not a money-making exercise; it is a test about the psychology of monetisation.


...he says, before laughing whilst checking his bank account online. P***k. :roll:

He's lost the plot, the game sounds terrible and whatever's inside can't be worth anything, if it's someone sensible that unlocks whatever's inside it will just get spammed allover the place anyway, this is the internet you can't keep anything a secret.

I wouldnt worry too much, its not as if anyone is gonna buy it. but i think its quite funny.
I think more games should give you the option of buying something ridiculous for £50,000.

Imagine if fifa gave you the chance to play as a team full of Timmy Mallett clones, at a cost of £50,000
Imagine Cod gave you the option of Paying £50,000 for a couple of new maps.
Imagine if you could pay £50,000 to have full intercourse with Nolan North.

It's an interesting idea. Providing what is revealed is unique and relevant to the user it becomes a question of how much a user wants to pay to see their version of the prize. By spending more money they become more likely to get the pay off.

It's a very interesting psychology experiment linked with game theory.

As it states in the article, it's not a game, but an experiment.

Interesting way of going about things IMO, can't wait to see how this pans out.

Unless it's a time machine, that sends you back to a time when Peter Molyneux actually made good games rather than pretentious, un-fun "experiences" then I'll avoid it as I usually do. C'mon Peter, we know you're creative and like to think outside the box, but we don't literally want to break down a box.

A chisel that is 100,000 times as powerful... Just how many hits does this cube need before it opens?!? The game doesn't sound very good to me at all. Sitting there hitting a cube and only one person gets to see what's inside... Bah!!! Peter, get to work on Dungeon Keeper 3 or a new Populous game for crying out loud. This is just nonsense!!

Oh great, this pretentious wanker continues to get work. The worst thing is some rich kid with more money than sense will probably buy it too.
I wish CVG would stop giving Peter Molyneux publicity
