Ironstar: David Jaffe has just spoken more in depth about PlayStation Network game sharing. He noted that he fully supports legal game sharing rather than sharing among random users across the PlayStation Network.
He kind of start good, but then he said things like if you can hack a game make a copy and give it to your friend its ok that priracy wich is not ok, but i belive if you are poor you should do it. and he start talking about having the DLC content in the disc already is ok to do that and that pure BS and i know he has a lot of fans but nobody should support that idea. i remenber everybody got mad when campcon did it and everybody should get mad at this guy because he is saying is ok to do it. he is a nice cool guy but some ideas of him are 5tupid and not cool. PS. to . David Jeff you know we could hurt you if we wan't we can buy used games but if you respect us and treat us right we could buy new games. let me put it this way, my PS3 got YOLD for the 3rd time. and is a great entretainment product i sue it every day. but YOLD is not someting im doing is someting that happend because the systhem is poor quality Sony should be responsable fix the problem for for free. and take care of me. plus i already lose all my one year save data or games pictures and etc and this same thign happending 3 times suxs way worse. knwo i will not buy MOD NATION RACES, GRAN TURISMO 5, and few otehr games on day one, o will wait and get them used because i fell used by SONY. how i can hurt them? not buying never againg a NEW game. if they took care of me respect me and fix my ps3 for free. i will be verry happy and buy their NEW games every time. and i will recomend their product and buy other from SONY like a TV SONY brand and not a Samsung. or when i Buy a future laptop i could chouse a SONY one but will i? ps. i don't care about XBOX or M$ i dislike i know they are worse.
Trying to steal my Wall-of-Text championship eh? I don't gameshare with total strangers but the whole concept is frowned upon by Sony if I'm not mistaken. Yet for some reason they haven't done anything to change it. In all honesty, I don't give a crap, if I can get free games with Sony not giving a crap either then no harm. Hell, even devs don't seem to care since if they did they could lock content. There are numerous ways Sony could manage to allow multiple downloads of a purchase without having it shared with others. Essentially the idea exists if you have to delete a game or have the HDD corrupt, etc. I do feel like I rob developers, and that is my only ethical issue, but they have the freedom to lock content if they please.
How on earth can it be illegal? you can only do it about 5 times with a game.
If I purchase a $60 game, I should be able to access everything in that disc!!! Not pay additional unlocking fees just to get some new costumes and sh1t! WTF?! you know, I love the ability to install and have more storage space for our consoles and all, but things like this sometimes makes me wish that internal Harddrives & updates didn't exsist for consoles, so developers wouldn't be able to hold back on us like they do now!!! just imagine if they made Resident evil 4 for this Gen instead. I bet we'd have only half the game playable, while the rest of the extra stuff such as alternate costumes and Ada's story would all be DLC... Bullsh1t!
and a joke...
wtf are you smoking? after watching that video...I don't even see where you got that piracy line from either. you pretty much took two parts of things he was saying and splicing them together. he basically said that he can understand game sharing if you have multiple consoles and need to install said game on other consoles. Not once did he say anything about it being cool with giving it to friends. And the hacking part was in reference to the extra content on the disc. If you can find a way to pull the extra content on the disc without paying for it and using it for yourself, then he doesn't have much of an issue with it since technically you do own the game. As far as his stance on having DLC content on the disc, I can honestly see that. I'm not a big fan of it to be honest. I never really did like DLC to begin with. But if it's going to be done, and if the media device has storage capacity, I can see the need to go ahead and store it on the device till it's ready to be unlocked. I may not necessarily agree with it, but I can accept it if it's going to be practiced. Also, the game sharing analogy was pretty good. Never thought of it that way... I don't think I'll stop doing it though...lol
Hes David Jaffe. Nuff said.
Talk about nerd rage.
Wow. He got a youtube page? Subscribe.
Well if its friends u talk to on a normal basis or family members then i guess he supports that. But random ppl like the user above me then its like u dont know the person and randomly letting them sharing a game or many dlcs , but they could also change your password locking you out of your account. Its safe for friends u know or family members though.
Delete your credit card info if you know you're going to gameshare, and make sure the p/w you give them is different from your email address or a different p/w to begin with. If it's different from your email address they can't get into your account and change it there. Because if something like that happens, then you can always request for a reminder to your email and you should get your p/w back....well unless they change your email as well. If they do that then you're screwed...so might as well just leave your billing info out and only gameshare with people you feel you can trust.
I let two of my friends bore my games, one think I try to do is keep the case to remember what game I don't have an to know the case won't get mess up (I can't stand game cases that are beat up). The sharing games that you download, I do that with people I know I trust, an I had a girl let me do the same and as pay back. She got a beta code for a game she loves to play. To tell the true, I think it be pretty cool idea if Sony makes it were you can put your disc in the system an choose share with a friend, then it steams it to the friends you choose an their is a limit of five, but in the same time if the delete it. Well its gone an you regain the number of people you can share with. But that is what I think, know making a idea like that work my be alot harder then it sounds and could take alot of time. But who knows.
I think it's pretty safe to say that this generation is probably the worst generation i've ever gamed in. Generation 5 and 6 were much better, none of this dlc bullshit - everything on the disc.
Wait wait.... how is it DLC if its in the Disc already? DLC is suppose to be content thats not in the disc which you download, not pay for a code that activates it for you from the disc which you already bought.
You buy the disc, its yours - everything on that disc is yours. In fact, Im going to go out on a limb and say 95% of DLC this gen has been BS. Im yet to pay for any DLC I would call revolutionary or even worth the money. Its a concept we should do away with for good! Back in the day, games were packed full of content, now - not so much. Its like they give you 85% of a game and sell you the other 15% later. DLC is often choppy, non-sensical and expensive. Don't even get me started on "unlockable DLC" - where people pay for something that back in the day a 8 button cheat code would have done. Great, something else this gen has ruined - cheat codes - their gone to preserve the "prestigious" honour of the trophy/achievement system... Give me a break, lets make games, games again. Bring back the full content on the disc, bring back the cheats - stop charging us like there's no tomorrow.
you better be making twisted metal ps3 and not some goofy arcade game like cuboid.
I think David Jaffe is a pretty awesome guy. People really get worked up over this stuff easily and bad. Example arakouftaian sounds like he just had a fricken stroke after watching the video.
DLC is crap for all games, It shouldn't be there for at least 6 months after a game comes out. Most publishers cut parts of the game to charge your for it now days. The only Place for DLC is for keeping popular online multiplayer communities fresh - and only when it's not cut from the game, clearly developed after the game was finished. Alot of companies now days, EA being the worst, want to try to nickle and dime you for stuff that should be included in the game. If a studio wants to extend a single player experience they should just make a new game, or a separate disk. Jaffe obviously takes the capitalist approach on game-sharing, he wants everything to be bought and paid for in full, he's a businessman. I don't think he quite grasps the concept of giving out 5 games at retail might not be that bad of an idea (resale is what keeps it from happening)- especially on co-op multiplayer driven games. Why not extend the value when it costs little to do so - given the people getting the free copy probably wouldn't be buying it anyway? and on PSN you can't share EACH game with choice friends, you get 5 people for the whole account. We all gotta learn to share.
