Brutal Gamer interviews ZEN Studios’ VP of Marketing Mel Kirk about the PlayStation Network shut down and what it means to developers and publishers who rely on it to sell their products.
An interesting read for sure. Many forget that people are waiting on psn sales to pay the rent...
It's interesting to consider the long term effects as well. I know I will be more cautious adding CC info in the future, and others like will as well.
Yeah i heard that some of Microsoft's customers are Affected by this too
everyone in the gaming community is affected by this. in some small way or another, whether they like to believe it or not, basically the square root is, if devs get less money we get less games
Yeah, we over on the xbox are gonna get a whole lot more exclusive XBLA games as PSN developers defect to Xbox, because no one is gonna buy things on PSN anymore. Woo hoo!!!
Oops! CAn't edit anymore, either :(
yeah i heard NASA is affected too they cannot goto mars now for another 20 years :(
The cure for cancer has also been "indefinitely delayed" according to highly reputable sources.
@cliffbo Well the pinball fx 2 mars table its already out!At least on xbox live.All you have to do is take a different route to mars!(; forget nasa!
On the bright side, the PSN shutdown has delayed the rise of Skynet by a couple of weeks.
Ah! That explains it! I was wondering why we didn't all get killed by nukes on Judgement Day.
It was kinda funny how PSN went down around the time that Skynet was supposed to be taking over. I figured GLaDOS of Aperture Science used Steam to hack the PSN and that it was on the verge of sentience. Thus why Sony had to shut down the PSN. If GLaDOS had linked to every PS3 it would have created a super computer the likes of which would have been unstoppable.... well until the power went out after Judgment Day. ;)
it racks in alot of money for companies and when it goes down they all feel it.
They Pinball games are fun. I haven't bought the Marvel Pinball game yet. As soon as PSN comes back, that'll be the 1st game I buy.
Marvel Pinball is a good game with 4 great tables. I have it and also Zen Pinball with all the tables which is also great. If you like Pinball then you'll love Marvel and Zen pinball games.
Mine's Streets of Rage 2
Marvel Pinball is great,especially blade table.
Site has a virus according to Chrome.
checked it out--no virus.
Checked it on Chrome, Firefox and even loaded IE (ewwwww!) and all was hunky dory :) Must have been an advert or something causing a false positive...
Digital Distribution is a million dollar profiter in this day in age theres alot of developers who are online only they cant afford not to sell products since they do it more often then none digital developers. In the result of this outage it really tests the integrity of these developers. Not just for PSN but for all internet based sources.
