They're just finding alternatives... like chipping in as a group, hitting the pub, or illegally streaming.

You can have 15 friends chip in on an event. Still counts as only one PPV buy. But again, this is what happens when you're charging 65 dollars a pop, sometimes twice a month.
This one actually had a break in price(30% off) if you ordered on xbox. But that is only a small fraction of people that actually bought the event.
