Move-Enabling Patches May Cost You

Looking forward to the Move-capable updates of Heavy Rain and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition? We imagine there are several more updates on the horizon, but you'd imagine having already bought the game and controller you wouldn't have to shell out again to use them together. Well, you might be wrong.

It only does charging for patches.

They charge for upressing older games from the PS2 era(Something which depending on hardware, happens for free on older PC games) call them remakes lol. Its a company after all making patches will cost them man hours, Why should this come as a surprise?

I think your confused. The quote indicated that 3rd party publishers may charge. This is a Sony Q&A, they cant categorically say either way if they (3rd party) will charge or not. Sony obviously wont charge (1st party games), they want people to buy Move, or those with Move, existing games.

It only makes sence. The Developers Had to work extra to design the move gameplay and they have to get payed. But if they are going to charge for a move patch for Resi 5 there is absolutely no reason why I shouldn't be able to play it on my launch copy that me and the real fans bought.

Capcom already stated that the Gold edition would be the only version with Move support. I also believe that the patch will be free. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the profits from the Gold edition were used to fund the Move patch. That was the whole point of them selling it.

I mean, that's the logical conclusion I come to... But Capcom is a somewhat greedy business, so who knows what they'll do. I'd be pissed if I bought the launch version, the Versus DLC, the Gold version and THEN i had to buy the patch for move. That's just shitty business. If that's how it plays out, screw Capcom. They'll be on my shitlist right next to Activision.

Money for added experiences >>> $10 because MS says they want more.

If they charge for a patch for any game to enable Move support, that is just pathetic.

ActionBastard2933d ago

Shame you didn't understand what was written.

evrfighter2933d ago

sound like they want 3rd party developers to start doing it so that they don't end up looking like the bad guys.

jdktech20102933d ago

It makes sense....they're doing additional work they didn't get paid for in the initial purchase of the game. That being said, it's a shocker that Sony is a company that wants money just like Microsoft....Oh noes, what will the fanboys say now? (not trying to start a war, just pointing out a point)

ActionBastard2933d ago

I doubt Sony will charge for 1st party titles, but EA/ACTI/Ubi/THQ/2K can do what they want. Online pass anyone?

wiggles2933d ago

It's probably safe to say that RE5 Will be forced to pay for Move support being that they charged for versus.
