Sony they saivior if gaming based on comments on n4g.


Yeah, this site is crazy with the love for Sony. I normally just find it funny but in the latest HD2 stories I find it incredibly sad and frustrating. First and foremost, we are all consumers and we should fight for each other, not corporations that only care about your wallet.

Just some days and a solution is found.

Your comment is rich considering that this topic is related to PC gaming :)
Care to elaborate on what Xbox has to do with PC gaming or this discussion.

Sony is a mess... Have been for years. Only their corporate shilling fanbase doesn't see it.

Who else is doing it better?

Yeah no Sony here messed up if they were going to do this you should've gotten support for psn in those 170 countries so yeah Sony take this L. Arrowhead I'm sorry guys.

The lack of support is mostly down to legal reasons. There are only 197 countries on earth, no way 170 countries lack support.

It's easy to fix, just don't go ahead with the subscription requirement. This is money men wanting numbers

TechRaptor48d ago

There is no subscription requirement there - just an account.

Part of the problem is how few countries PSN officially supports, and that if you sign for a different region Sony has the right to ban your account. There are also some issues about Sony's history of very poor data security.

Steelerman48d ago

There isn't currently a subscription requirement, you're right. But I foresee this becoming a thing they push a subscription for. They will require all pc games from sony to have the sony launcher/account and then force a subscription to play online multiplayer on those games. It's the only reason they'll hang on to this if they do.

And yet, 91k players currently on Steam.
13th with only legendary games like DOTA2, GTAV and Counterstrike above it

Controversy my arse.

Boycott Sony till they allow ppl to play without account

CornholioX48d ago (Edited 48d ago )

Try it with EA and Ubisoft. It's just the same. you buy games on steam that comes from other publishers, you need an account too to play.

BeHunted48d ago

Sony launched the game globally, and it was purchased by people on Steam. Sony mandated linking the game to a PSN account months later, then proceeded to delist the game from over 100 countries, thereby revoking gamers' access. Next Level Scam.

Neonridr47d ago

it's one thing to require it BEFORE you buy a game. Instituting it afterwards is shady AF.

Extraction killing and kicking is becoming a trend in Helldivers 2, and it needs to stop

Your goal in Helldivers 2 is to complete missions as a team. Not to kill your fellow soldiers just as you're about to finish one.
