In his keynote at the London Games Summit, Sony Worldwide Studios VP Michael Denny has said that downloadable content is the industry's "big weapon" as it heads into a new era - and that games extras sold online could even discourage game trade-ins.
well i trade by games and then buy them back on ebay for 1/4 the price so im happy in the end no matter what
same will go with the Nintendo online games
Most launch games are actually using services like Gamespy or XFire for online features. Or just scrapping online altogether. Not only is Sony ripping off other people's banter here (Microsoft especially has already said all of this), but they don't even have a proven online service to base it off of. And for the love of God, get a new picture for that guy! He looks like a child molester!
hey you guessed right no, no, that's not right.
Asmuch as I enjoy sony's speaches. I feel lately they are just saying what other companies have done first and try to pass it off they did it first. Like how sony said e-distrubution is the future, but bill gates already said this in a speech a few years ago, same with whats happening now, microsoft all ready said this. Same with microtransactions, it already been done but sony is acting like they were the first to do it.
Has no proof that their online service even exists. This is all just intellectual masturbation.
it sounds like sony's focus for the future online service is as a money-making download system for games. they don't give a sh1t about you playing online against each other. they just want a easy, fast way to take more money from sony fanboys. fu(k gamers having fun, just make sure there are MICRO-TRANSACTIONS!! nice sony!
MS has been offering Online Content for it's games for years on Live!, and I see no decline in people trading there games in. Sooner or later, the game gets stale no matter what new content becomes available. Only a few gems deserve to stay in a collection, the rest will get traded no matter how many extras are available to download for it.
Well considering R:FOM has 40 player online.It's a safe bet to say online does exist.
