Maker of PSN Game Being Offered for Free Worries About PlayStation Store’s Viability

When PlayStation Store returns (reports suggest that will be May 24), PS3 account holders may choose two free games from a list being offered by Sony. One of those is Dead Nation (pictured), and the studio behind it told Edge magazine it's worried what the glut of free games might do to efforts to sell its latest release.

I understand their concern, but it also isn't fair for other developers that didn't get their content released during the downtime. This situation kinda goes both ways, but Sony is more concerned about their customers in this instant.

Also, in making their customers happy, it raises the chances of even more people buying a PS3 and supporting the devs.

Not only are gamers are affected by this, the developers who were suppose to release their games and make some money are affected severly too. When PSN store does come back online..people will be focusing on the freebies instead of the new releases that are suppose to come out a month ago or the new releases that are being released as of now. Exposure for their games will be limited.

Its not about what is fair and what isn't.

The system was hacked and people (everyone) got affected.

Its like saying its not fair that a person can't sell goods from their store due to a natural disaster (only difference is we can find who created the disaster, hack).

It just is what it is.

Deadnation wasn't as good as expected anyway, i mean they released a game with online co-op..without voice chat.. a survival game with no voice chat.. took them ages to finally add it aswell, and it breaks up often

anyway.. stuff happens, if anything it will generate new fans and maybe even requests for a sequel

Next-gen.biz isn't some random blog and all of the whining in the world won't change that.

The only developers this will affect is the one's that make s%*t games. Don't see why Housemarque would be worried. Enjoyed the last two games from them so would always think about getting a new game of theirs.

Obvious flamebait is obvious.

A multimillion dollar (in revenue) a year platform is not viable?

Yah. In more important and somber news, Randy "Macho Man" Savage passed yesterday.

"Stupid is as stupid does." A person got an Academy Award for saying that.
