Can someone PLEASE give sony the memo. I don’t know what it is but it seems to me that sony just hasn’t gotten the memo. From the very beginning of this gen sony has done nothing but ignored every gaming trend that we gamers have requested and gotten used to over the past 15 years. I remember that day when I first saw that video that sony did about how to share your ps4 games. I remember thinking to myself “what the hell’s up with that?” What’s wrong with sony? Who told them to leave the power of game ownership in the hand of the players? Don’t they know that we want to relinquish total control of our games to the publishers? Don’t they know that we want EA, Microsoft and Activision to tell us what we can and cannot do with our games? Don’t they understand that we want to never be able to resell our old games? Their refusal to do 24 hour DRM was another indication that they just didn’t get the memo.
Then you had that whole VR thing, seriously, what’s up with that? Why is sony trying to help innovate gaming? So many people said that VR was a waste of time and that it would fail, but did they listen, NO THEY DIDN’T. They just doubled down. Don’t they know that we just want to continue playing games the same way we always have since the 1970’s? Why try to give gamers different and more diverse ways of experiencing gaming, it’s counterproductive (seriously, right now my PSVR is sitting on my counter and it’s usually very productive). They need to stop it. They need to stop giving us new experiences. They’re not reading the memo.
And what about all those exclusives huh? If sony really gave a damn they wouldn’t be pumping out all those exclusives over the past 4 years. I mean c’mon really? I’ve got so many games I have a backlog the length of my………..arm. Sometimes I get a headache just trying to decide what game to play next after I finish another one. And seriously, do they have to make all of them so damn good? Where’s the stinkers sony, you could at least try and release more stinkers so that it would make it easier to ignore some of those games. But we all know they aren’t gonna listen to us. They’re just gonna continue pumping out high quality games just to screw with us. But the jokes on them, we’ll always have Ubisoft and EA there to satisfy us with their buggy yearly atrocities to help restore the balance. READ THE BLOODY MEMO SONY!!!!!
But my biggest peeve, (that one thing that reeeeaally grinds my gears) is their blatant refusal, their downright act of defiance and what I can only call “A slap in the face of every gamer”, their decision to continue supporting Single.Player. Games. HOW DARE THEY!!! In this day and age, where so many other developers see us as infinite cash reserves, at a time when we want nothing more than to be sold half of a game and then spend another 200 bucks paying for the rest of it through DLC and Microtransactions only to be told a year later that the service will be shutting down and we’ll have to by the next game in the series. At a time when what we the gamers really want is GaaS and online only multiplayer, sony has decided to keep making single player only games. Showing once again that they don’t care about the gamers, sony has decided to create full high quality single player experiences that provide hours of engaging gameplay. Who the heck told sony that I wanted to be able to game even if my internet is down? Do they not care that I want to hear some five year old scream at me and tell me what he did to my mom last night every time I game? It is an absolute slap in the face to every gamer I tell you. They literally forced me to spend 93 hours platinuming and 100 percenting the map in GOW. That was time I could have spent playing the same 10 maps in cod over and over, or emptying my bank account in destiny buying silver just to get that 1 outfit I like. Does no one at sony care? WHO TOOK THE BLOODY MEMO!!!!!
As I sit here and read that article about sony winning April NPD, It fills my heart with pain. A company that has decided time and time again to break from the norm and do things differently is being rewarded with sales. And I blame you gamers. I blame you for wanting quality over quantity. I blame you for wanting to own the games you payed for. I blame you for daring to want your money’s worth from a game. I blame you for rewarding a company that has shown its dedication to gamers. You’ve set us back 20 years. Now I have no choice but to preorder Spiderman, days gone, ghost of tsushima, death stranding and TLOU2. Such dark times ahead.
