I’m not really sure what their strategy is. Tycho mentions that PAX and Child’s Play have lives of their own.
He wants to do the opposite of growing business, but also claims that only big years will follow from now on. How does all that fit together?
Anyway, without PAR they pretty much have only the comic left, that I follow via RSS reader.
Well gladly phones aren’t necessary in these days and you can already witness on Twitter how everyone immediately reacted to Kuchera’s announcement.
I’m pretty sure that Ben will have several promising options within 48 hours. And if Polygon is smart, they’ll be among them.
“Oh, well” was never intended to be an apology. Whatfor? I never insulted you. Telling someone that they weren’t helpful is no sin.
And I can’t register that I said anything else that could be considered cruel, mean or whatever else still seems to make you complain. You didn’t seem to know that you can’t simply switch accounts on the Vita, end of story.
But hey, whatever makes you feel better. I’m sure it will improve your own Karma.
I only said that your suggestion didn’t help, because it had an essential fault. If that was too mean … oh well. And yes, I knew about using foreign accounts.
I agree, that America’s IGC catched up is some nice progress.
That our’s lost content, got its quality reduced and that the sales still stink, is the not so nice (European) side of Sony.
And yeah, I get slightly annoyed if things get too one-sided. Wouldn’t you?
Uh? They took something away from us. Exclusively. No idea what you are talking about.
Our advantage already turned into a disadvantage.
We lost our third PS3 game, America kept theirs (and Borderlands 2 is really a nice game to miss) and the general quality of the last 2 updates has been (a lot) better in the USA than in Europe.
I can pretty much say that there is absolutely nothing left where SCEE manages to compete with SCEA.
And how exactly is that supposed to help me?
If that was an advise for P4G, you probably don’t own a Vita. Otherwise you’d know that one can’t simply switch between accounts with that one.
And seriously, it’s not to much requested that SCEE gets their act together. But it’s just all the same story, year after year.
Surely a fair and decent first deal, considering how popular FIFA 14 is.
But funny enough, the price remains unchanged so far. They also didn’t manage to publish their promoting blog entry nor run the promo or ad on their store.
But that’s pretty much the standard experience with the european store team.
Last time they managed to set the wrong prices several times, had to do plenty of refunds afterwards. And it always takes them several hours, if not days, to react to the instantly incoming reports. Not the best procedure with deals that last for only 48 hours.
I can’t imagine the reactions if Steam would be even half as prone to errors as SCEE.
Oh well, doesn’t really matter anyway. All I’d want is Persona 4 Golden, which has its third or fourth sale on the US store and none so far (or in sight) in Europe. Considering that the standard prices are $30 and 40€, just adds to the pain. When we have to pay almost twice as much, why even bother with a sale?
Experience teached me that gamers rather tend to be biased in the one or other direction than “professional” reviewers.
And I didn’t say that I don’t value the opinion of gamers, I just disagree with cgilmore’s far too extreme verdict.
Those are always terribly inaccurate anyway
Always? You must have a very weird taste if not once Metacritic reflected your opinion.
Sure, there are aberrations and abuses. But in general Metacritic ratings are surely far more helpful than the average feedback from random gamers from random sources.
It’s worth it. I loved the Death Mod, which everyone else seemed to hate. I considered the rest to be just mildly amusing though.
Appropriate solution if you know what you are looking for.
But they still need to offer a real library of ones digital content, as Steam does. I simply want to browse and filter what I have.
I wish SOE would achieve the same cross platform functionality for their games. Or at least they should offer to use one account on both platforms.
Planetside 2 for example, I wouldn’t want to grind (or pay) to achieve the very same unlocks that I already got on the PC.
