Mr Molyneux's marvellous experiment
After recently reading about Peters latest idea for the experimental game Curiosity I was disappointed to see the hate flow through people. Just like any attention grabbing headline some people only judge the article by its headline and then explain where they stand on the matter. The split between who had and hadn't read the article was so glaringly obvious it became rather embarrassing. Especially when people suggested how if 20 pickaxes sold the would make $1000000, which is impossible as Molyneux made himself very clear about the fact they will only be selling one of them.

The idea I see is a test of human curiosity and how the sole owner of the DLC would react as they have such power. Molyneux himself said "This is not a money-making exercise; it is a test about the psychology of monetisation" A concept many people who skim read articles may not have understood. The lies within the fact the game just might not be interesting enough to warrant for the pricetag. However that still remains to be seen.

The economist in me was intrigued to see how people would react to see a finite resource at such a high price instead of seeing an infinite resource such as the $.58 pickaxe. And as expected they saw the $50000 and expected it to be overly expensive when in fact its just simple economics on a much grander scale.

I see this to be a great idea from the king of 'hit and miss' statements. But it will ultimately backfire as people will see it as a greedy and shallow tactic to make a easy $50k. And as always the ignorant and the uninformed provide a laugh for their inability to read anything without frothing at the mouth in hate.
