With the Playstation Network having an estimated restore date of 30th May and the release of some huge titles released this month. Game developers can only hope for the worst as their titles are released without PSN access. What are your thoughts?
Why would they hope for the worst?
incase their sales drop on the ps3?
it's understandable. We're all just grumpy. We don't wantoo wait [exactly how it sounds]
Shouldn't game developers be hoping for the best? Why would they hope for the worst?
feel sorry for the people wanting to get some brink on. Shameful. Sony has a lot of ass kissing to do to their customers.
They wont be worried . Content be there.. If they can feed updates on games wile psn is down im sure they can manage to inplace dlc to psn in time.. Too many overreacting articles.. Fedup with bad publicity what about given some respect a support. Like some true sony fans show on here.
I do have lots of respect towards sony and hope they take as long as they need to to make sure the network is running at the best it can. I purely wrote the article to show the games which could be affected :)
Fare enough dude just impression i got with soo many blogs websites knocking sony and not 1 site attacking at thoes responsible .its just getting to me buddy. Dont worry im sure wont effect the devs given u agree ..
Like Witcher 2, a PC game...
Ummm why is LA Noire up there?? And isn't the witcher 2 a PC only game??
It only does PC exclusives?
Website FAIL. Witcher 2 is a PC only game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
LOL so true, why are they up there (LA Noire, The Witcher 2).
You should have added games already impacted like Portal 2.
okay i shall fix them now vgreleases had witcher 2 on ps3 http://www.vgreleases.com/P... I shall add in already impacted games too :)
Witcher 2? Isn't that PC exclusive? And "All the updates could be a hassle" Updates still work fine on games. Im sure with a little bit of clearance from Sony it wouldn't be a hassle to the consumer at all. LA Noire is advertised with PS logo's and doesn't need online. Only thing hurting those sales would be an Xbox fanboy in Gamestop or Bestbuy telling customers to buy 360. Only game truly affected by the outage is FEAR 3. So much so that WB could be optioning a delay. At least I would If I were them.
cant believe any1 is gonna get noir on 360 3 damn discs lmao.
well we have a console that works online
@ zealot i thought it was a single player game? lol talk about getting a cheap sting.
"Only game truly affected by the outage is FEAR 3" what about Brink, MK9, and Portal 2.
On this list...didn't know I had to specify that. Brink is completely playable just fine offline. Not being online isn't going to destroy it.
Wasn't FEAR 3 delayed until Summer? This article is horrible...just horrible!
I would think that single player games, such as L.A. Noire, would sell even more since people would want to play offline games since no one knows when psn will be back up again. But Brink is going to take a hit, they should of delayed till June. I hope the developer knows what he is doing.
Ahh so reuters had the date right then.
I don't see how LA Noire would be effected - unless the game needs a patch straight away or something. The only thing we might not be able to access is the pre-order DLC for the time being. I can go for either console version, but I'm going for PS3 as it's 1 happy disc.
If thats the case about patches then it will be fine cause you can still download game updates, I did the other day for bulletstorm.
lol its funny because this whole psn hack thing reminds me of how ocelot tried to release everyone from the nanomachine government control thing in mgs4
What a sad situation. At least it exposes all the claims of hackers like Geohot that they represent anything good or worthwhile - years of stress free online gaming derailed by a bunch of criminals who pretend to be so noble to add insult to injury.
