Sony Has Been 'As Transparent As it Can Be,' says Capcom

Sony's handling of the PSN fiasco has been called into question by many, but Capcom has told IndustryGamers that the company has at least been fairly open in its communications with publishing partners. While Capcom is clearly upset about losing potentially "millions of dollars" in PSN-related revenues, VP Christian Svensson did say that Sony has been quite "transparent."

Only sensationalist blogs and "media" outlets, and your everyday troll has questioned Sony. I haven't read a single negative comment towards Sony from developers, publishers and retailers. Hell even Nintendo & M$ could have jumped on Sony but they haven't, they have been gracious because they know this could have happened to anyone. As a whole the gaming community stick together.

"...they know this could have happened to anyone."

So why hasn't it? Microsoft have been banning hackers/modders for a long time forcing them to buy a new Xbox and they still have not hacked Xbox Live for revenge.

M-Easy2659d ago

I don't understand your point?

Tommykrem2659d ago

Probably because Sony has upset a world of liars by doing everything to keep the console unhackable. Including Other OS removal.

If it happened for another reason then it might as well have happened before.

SuperM2659d ago

Stupid question. Thats like asking why havent they hacked the PSN before? After all its been up for over 4 years without getting hacked. Also i think its fair to say that hackers have been targeting Sony in particular lately. Have you not heard of anonymous?

@M-Easy
Xbox Live hackers and modders have a reason to hack Xbox Live so why haven't they? I will tell you why, Microsoft do not go around suing everything that walks on two legs.

@Tommykrem
The PS3 is very far from un-hackable.

@SuperM
Sony never pissed off the hacking community as much as they did before.

Redrum0592659d ago

ppl have had money stolen through their xboxlive accounts b4, xbl isnt so secure iether. the psn hack was a bit on a massive/personal level. whats the difference? well...

xbl has been hacked
psn has been attacked. so protocalls must be taken.

sdtarm2659d ago

Dear capcom, everybody is losing money, we are not glad that this is happening, what makes you think you care about you, why dont you quit from the game industry, only thing you do is overcharge DLCs and make halfassed games

@Redrum059
No Xbox Live as a system has never been hacked. Xbox Live accounts have individually been hacked but only through third party security systems.

Eg. Head of security at Microsoft had his account hacked because a hacker found out his information through his web host.

Tommykrem2659d ago

Sorry, I just re-checked my comment and for some reason I wrote liars... I haven't got the slightest idea why! Scary, but I meant hackers not liars.

wsoutlaw872659d ago

Sony pissed off guys who don't care about games, just hacking, its all they do. Like SuperM said you could ask that same question about sony a month ago.

rockleex2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

"So why hasn't it?"

Because although every online network is hackable, each network has its own unique architecture and coding that hackers must figure out first.

Just because you can solve a Rubik's cube doesn't mean you can solve every other kind of puzzle on Earth.

"Microsoft have been banning hackers/modders for a long time forcing them to buy a new Xbox and they still have not hacked Xbox Live for revenge."

Do people actually think Live accounts are not hacked? Really?

"No Xbox Live as a system has never been hacked. Xbox Live accounts have individually been hacked but only through third party security systems. "

Result is still the same though.

thats rich coming from capcom

NukaCola2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Capcom is the leading company that milks content and games. I mean 5 or 6 Fighters in less than 3 years? They can eat it. They make enough money of suckers daily.

Street Fighter II Turbo
Street Fighter II Turbo HD
Street Fighter 4
Street Fighter DLC Costumes(Over $30)
Super Street Fighter 4
Street Fighter 4 Arcade
Street Fighter 4 3DS
Street Fighter 4 Arcade DLC
Marvel vs Capcom 2 HD
Marvel vs Capcom 3
Street Fighter X Tekken

Look I am just saying they are milkers. Shall we go with:
Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 4 PS2
Resident Evil 4 Wii
Resident Evil 4 PS3
Resident Evil Archives Wii
Resident Evil 5 (Won't allow Move on original)
Resident Evil 5 Gold
Resident Evil 5 Move Edition
Resident Evil 3DS gets 2 games in on launch gap?

Come on people.

Giant_Chibi2659d ago

Who are you to complain? You probably don't even play sf to understand the major differences between sf4 and ssf4.

Rynx2659d ago

try 3 SF's in 3 years on consoles

testerg352659d ago

Dang.. what did Capcom say piss you off?

oricon2659d ago

Actually its really 2, AE is more of an expansion pack, but they will stop selling SSFIV in favour of SSFIV AE on disc. There are alot more companies that are alot worse than Capcom.

Elimin82659d ago

I agree. Capcom is like nintendo with their games.. They rarely dish out new IP's... RARELY!!!

zackacloud2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Re5 Marcines Or whatever it named

In 3ds and ios system

Sf4 and re4 in ios system

I know they milk games and DLC. But i buy the SF because there is alot of material there regardless. The DLC milking is crappy from a price point. I love the characters but $5 for one is ridiculous.

radphil2659d ago

"Who are you to complain? You probably don't even play sf to understand the major differences between sf4 and ssf4."

It's simple.

The difference is paying $40 instead of $60.

Rainstorm812659d ago

dont forget they added a new Ultra combo for each character (which you shouldnt have had to choose between them since it was a new game)....but all in all SSF4 couldve been DLC

radphil2659d ago

Oh same thing with Arcade Edition, and yet that one's also getting a retail release(not joking about that sadly)

BlackTar1872658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

it added 10 new characters. New game play tweaks. New Ultra combos. New locations. new mini game modes.

it would be a pretty big/huge and expensive DLC.

"which you shouldnt have had to choose between them since it was a new game"

what does that mean. that since its a new game the option to use either one was a bad thing?

radphil2658d ago

@BlackTar187

Well the thing is RDR was able to manage a DLC and re-retail release with Undead Nightmare, so why couldn't they do the same?

BlackTar1872658d ago

there not even any where close to being comparable.

10 characters is 100000000x for time then all of the undead nightmare even if you played it for 20hrs.

If you care enough to want the 10 new character then you should understand how long it takes to really learn even 2 of those characters much less 10.

I agree with you in some ways but i think your over simplifying.
Undead nightmare is what 4 hrs long i can;t even remember how long it took me to beat it.

I think they have been, its just unprofessional lame-duck websites that have flooded the internet with fud, and on top of that rabbid turd eating fanboys have also decided to jump on the sony hate. No matter how much hate they spew out it will never net them any more games...

burn102659d ago

Yeah the internet has sensationalized the crap out of this. I am shocked with Capcom losing money every day on this, they are still standing by Sony. People just need to ease up. I'd rather have Sony take their time. That way this fiasco is less likely to happen again.
