Lightbulb SNS in my eyes

Well here is SNS in my eyes

Rare made SNS to make people buy both games 4 the added bonus & then made ppl buy N&B cause it Has SNS & then BK360 Then BT360 4 the final SNS but they r just continuing on & makin us buy every game

so in my eyes it's just a scam & please don't do bad replies if you don't think so U don't have 2 reply

It's not a scam as much as it is just a marketing ploy. That's all it is, was, and ever will be. And god dammit it worked.

I don't think it worked.
I think most people bought Bt because the first game rocked.
Not to unlock goodies in the next game.

It certainly was a major aspect for the XLA version. It convinced a lot of people to buy Tooie again. Hell, if it wasn't major, people wouldn't have been nagging Rare about it for all of these years.

What Avarice said. It's a gimmick, not a scam.

seeing as it was intended for use for two complete years... it obviously wasn't a gimmick, we, the curious people, made it into one... we coulda just left it alone and the last 10 years coulda meant nothing for SNS lol..

How is that relevant to it being a gimmick or not?

Just because something is well-implemented, plays a big part of a game or is taken very seriously by the game designers, doesn't mean it's not a gimmick. I mean look at Super Mario Galaxy.

Stop 'N' Swop was obviously originally planned to be a gimmicky feature.
