Sony has leave a official response to the missing "Counter Strike: Global Offensive" in today´s european PlayStation Store Update.
That sucks man, I was in the PC beta for a while, and I think it's something everyone should be able to play, I really enjoyed it. I'll probably buy it on PS3 though since it supports keyboard and mouse as well. But yea that sucks, Sony is making EU miss out on a great game. Anyone that knows how to work the store though can just as easily make a US account and get it, but that's not the point.
lol if you want more competition then stay on pc. Only the minority of ps3 gamers will use keyboard and mouse.
Nearly everyone I talked to on the ps3 version is using mouse and keyboard.
I'm just trying to figure out why 4 people don't like my comment when I was sticking up for Europe :/
also mods man.. The console version is just meh.
Why is patience such a hard thing for people to have? EDIT: Say your mom says she'll order pizza for you and doesn't, then says she will order it in a month or two. Have patience. The world isn't ending.
Ok say your mom orders Pizza for dinner and she shares it out to everyone in the house but tells you that you will have to wait a month or two to eat your pizza...does that seem fair to you? Edit: @ YES - But your mom still went and ordered pizza for your brothers but told you that she will order yours next month. She should treat you all equally and dont have favourites which means if you have to wait then your brothers should also have to wait.
the delay could quite possibly be because it's still going through certification at sony europe because it may have failed the process in europe while it didn't in north america. unlike MS, the certification process is separate in each region (north america, europe, japan, etc...) and all have their own idiosycrasies that makes it a little inconsistent. the exact same build of a game can pass in north america, but fail in europe, which in turn can cause a delay such as this. so i don't think it's really about playing favourites here...
@ziggurcat The delay could also be down to the fact that when your mum ordered the pizza and distributed it around the rest of the house, it was found that the toppings were not up to standard. The best course of action was decided to be to delay your helping of the pizza in a hope that they could have more time to improve the toppings and possible add bonus toppings to apologise for the delay.... or SCEE are slow as fuck as per usual
Entitled gamers damnit!
This isn't just about patience, this is about SCEE messing us around so often. We already pay way too much for digital downloads compared to UK and NA users. Here's an example, Papo & Yo came out last week and NA users had a week to pre-order it at $15 and got a free PS3 theme for it too. EU users had to pay €15 for the title and didn't get anything for it, that's the equivalent of about $19. NA users had PS2 classics on the PS store many months before we got any in the whole of the EU and when we did get them there was only a few worth shouting about. We've had mistakes and issues like this with games going onto the store a few days or a week later than when they were supposed to be there. What gives? The people behind the SCEE store are all over the place.
it is unfair generally how the gaming industry equates €1 to $1. €1 does not equal $1.
I have noticed nowadays most people have no patience. Things have to be done like yesterday. People like this really irritate me. As the saying goes, " best things come to those who wait ".
users are fuming on e.u blog and rightly so id say , scee are just lazy idiots that think coz ps3 sells well in europe we will accept shit
This is Sony people, the worst ran corporation in the world. No wonder they're dying.
Dont really understand Sony's logics. Europe loves Sony and is one of the biggest PS3 market but always gives Europe the shitty end of the stick. America loves MS and the 360 but Sony decides to give Americans more love anyway -_-
well, if you lead a certain market you tend to put more effort on the market you try to improve.
@ Chris - Like how MS leads in USA but puts more effort in Japan. All this is doing is pissing of the Europe fans and doing nothing for the American fans.
I wouldn't go that far, but I would say that SCEE store team are woeful at times.
you re an idiot
sorry for that comment above. it was not intended to anyone. i was double posting and sent this one by mistake. My apologies to anyone who felt insjlted by it.
i didn't know dying company's make more/better games then healthy ones. work on your techniques harder before you try trolling successfully.
Well they got alot of territories to cover with different commerce rules. But i agree that they do get shafted alot when it comes to updates.
A fiasco by SCE Europe once again.
Kinda really pissed about this.. was looking forward to getting this tomorrow. I know its not the end of the world, but honestly, the fuck? Day ruined :( unless my copy of Fall of Cybertron comes in then ill be happy!
If everyone is using k/b mouse, then those games should be separate. People just using gamepad would not stand a chance.
Was looking forward to playing this today as well tbh.. very disappointed. =/
so CS will never be in EU Store?
Hardly surprising, it is SCEE after all.
i was so pissed off about this that i went and bought a us psn card online and bought it off the us store. im from Australia so im also affected. cost me $25 Australian for a $20 card off this site called maximus cards. now ive got a spare $5 bucks and debating whether to buy a ps mini or hold out for the inevitable paid dlc for csgo. only downside in doing this is the download is twice as long as normal. prob cos it US servers. yet to play it but cannot wait!!
