Japanese Publishers Stress PS3, Patching

A number of third party executives gathered on 7/6 at a press meeting hosted in Tokyo by Japan's CESA (Computer Entertainment Software Association). Big names like Square Enix president Yoichi Wada and Bandai Namco Games' vice president Shin Unozawa shared thoughts on the future of gaming.

PS3, "an opportunity for the developers to save money on bug testing", what a ridiculous idea.

Seems like MS already cleared the way for this with DOA4 and CoD2.

No seriously, I hope that devs don't start getting lazy in not making sure their products work correctly before being launched. Gamers are paying big money for their products and if they are not working correctly out of the box, that is unacceptable. Then it'll be just as bad as the PC. While PC games are nice because they can be patched later, it also makes it easier for a developer to rush things just to get the game out, and it is unplayable for gamers for some time.

they prob dont have time to test there games lol so they will ship them brocken it get worse for sony i kind of feel sorry for them ,, but then again they are arogant fukers so what ever .......... i wonder what the fony droids are thinking now lol this is funny

developers won't have to work so hard to find the zaniest bugs ...................

lol what a joke so they will let there customers do that for them lol after there customer spends like $70-$90 what a joke

why pay for beta testers if you can ship it broken and fix it later. customers be damned. Look at it this way,if you wait for them to patch the game before buying ,you can get it for less than the 60 or 70 buck they are thinking of asking and at the same time show the developers that shipping beta crap isnt gonna fly like it does on the pc....lets hope
