A cheaper price but without the freebies - wallpapers, avatars etc
That'd be awesome for me, cheaper games all round. Those things don't do anything for me.
No. Bonuses are free - free for you, free for the rightsholder. They do not generate demand by themselves. The rightsholder expects the game to sell for X bucks per license. If a stripped edition is offered, people will mostly buy the stripped edition, and prices will rise
. Hypothetical illustrative example:
"Hey GOG, would you sell our game for $10?"
"Sure! That'll be $7 for the base game and $3 for extras."
"Uh-huh. How many people buy extras?"
"So that'll be $7.45 per license. Errr nevermind, make that $10 for the base game and $3 for the extras."
