Threads of Fate available on PSN? Sure. | Geared for Gamers

How will publishers decide to roll games and DLC out when PlayStation Netowrk service is restored? They sure wouldn’t want to saturate the market, but then again a lot of people have been dying for some new content.

What are your thoughts? Do you want the entire backlog available on day one or should publishers re-evaluate the timing of releases that were impacted due to the outage?

Good game. Rather have a sequel though.

Well, when the store part of the PSN is restored, I'm hoping that everything that was supposed to have been released during the time the network was down will be on it. There are quite a few PSOne classics, DLC, and PSN games that I wanted to get.

In addition, all of the devs and publishers who were supposed to have their respective items released would likely want them available as soon as possible. So I don't really see any reason why they can't just have it updated, up-to-date when the store goes back up.

Hopefully, that will be the way things are when it goes back up. I guess only time will tell.

While it would be ideal for us ... realistically , as publisher or even small indie dev , would you want your stuff potentially drowned in a sea of dozens of titles released at the same time ?

I dunno about that

That would be understandable in a retail situation where the game is competing for shelf space among other things. However for digital releases, I would assume its much different.

You already have a large catalog of games to choose from on the store. I don't see why a publisher would want to postpone an already delayed release for fear it will be overshadowed by other games on the network.

I doubt it would be any more drowned out than if it was released at its regular time. Its not as if 200 games and digital downloads would be released at once. The PSN hasnt been down a year. Just a few weeks. So not THAT much stuff will be updated to the store.

Thats only what I assume though.
