DICE, creators of Battlefield 3, have stated that they believe the PSN hack was a good thing in the long-run.
Guaranteed, of course Sony will make it much much better than it was before in terms of security.
Damn straight, im sure psn will be more secure now. btw ps3 footage is looking good dice, keep it up! ;)
The security will be better, thats a given. But all the money, time and resources the hack cost Sony has to come/be cut from somewhere.
True, but Sony is crazy rich. I'm sure they will manage ok. If not they can get Jack Tretton to do kids birthday parties. He'd recoup the money eventually.
But they still bought another 1st party studio, just recently, despite the financial issues.
Did i miss something here? Which studio!?
There's no reason for people to be disagreeing with you. Not everyone follows every piece of news. And besides, it wasn't that big of a studio anyway. It's the studio behind invizimals and the new Vita fighter.
It was Novarama, they make Invizimals, and the upcoming Reality Fighters for PS Vita.
Yeah they needed an other dedicated handheld developer. Hopefully these guys don't just push out shovel ware.
"But all the money, time and resources the hack cost Sony has to come/be cut from somewhere." See Resistance 3 one time only online pass.
I like the fact DICE are who they are! I mean, they seem pro PS3 while many third parties are more towards 360. I have both consoles and love them both but its refreshing to see them take so much pride and interest in the PS3. They are right, the hack could make a better psn online. BF3 is looking awesome on PS3 also.
Not to troll or anything but Dice are mainly PC devs! They won't go have ass! Example: Portal 2 has cross platform & free dlc is coming! Look at Dust 514 They are actually trying something never done before! Dice already have had dedicated servers on consoles to so everyone will be good! It's good to see a lack of cod influence. But Sony gets credit for not being like MS & trying control every situation and not allowing other services! They even Bring Pay Day to pc! Sony is great! Besides the psn pass thing..
I could add to that comment why they are pro ps3 but I will labled as a fanboy. I will just say since games like GOW3 KZ3 and MGS4 all take up more 30 GIGs of data I'm sure not having storage limitations is a factor.
im not sure.. psn passes are going to start coming in full force im not sure if thats great for psn
do you buy all your games used
Do you care about the community you play in? PSN (EA Online or whatever other) Pass is a barrier to online gaming that will ensure only the biggest games will have a good community.
I guess you could call that a backlulz
Don't promise something that is out of your control.
Erh.. They "believe"... That is no promise at all.
I was simply suggesting they (any company) do not do so (attempt control over any outside intrusion) in future.
