Why are the DLC for canadians $1 more?
Having just bought Rockband, There is no way I’m spending $2.99 for a song when it is $1.99 in the US?

If I bought
# “Limelight” – Rush ($1.99)
# “Hard to Handle” – The Black Crowes ($1.99)
# “Gimme Three Steps” – Lynyrd Skynyrd ($1.99)

I would spend $9.00 compared to $6.00. That’s a huge markup for what should be an equal transaction. If I’m in the US I can use the $3 I saved to buy more content and grab a couple of $.99 song….In Canada? $1.99 each song. What a joke.

Of course they strip the game away. I realize that’s what a demo is. It’s typically 1 level or mission or something to show you the game. On a football demo they give you like 3 teams, 1 stadium, 1 time of day or whatever. Very limited.

So extend that to warhawk. Figure they’d give you 1 map. Sure, there’s only 5 maps in the entire game. That’s kind of a lot to give for free. Then they’d have to set up dedicated servers for demo people, because of course you can’t have demo people playing with full versions since they only have 1 map, or 2-3 little maps (you know how those WH maps are divided to give like 3-4 variations). But wait, you can’t track stats because that’d put everyone in a hissy fit. So basically it’d be like playing a non-ranked game. Or if they set it up as P2P gaming, you’d still have to have a considerable number of people playing the demo in order for anyone to actually experience the game in the demo.

But you run into this:
a) People have so much fun on the demo they won’t buy the real game
b) There is nobody on the demo because everyone else already bought the game, so the late people to the party think the game sucks and doesn’t buy it.

Look at the Starcraft demo. That had 3 single player missions, and 1 map online for 1v1. If you did the same thing on Warhawk, since there is no multiplayer, it’d be an extremely gimped demo.

My bad.

I am calling for Grace Chen’s head on a platter. Sony needs to fire those Managers that do not answer questions from the public. It’s part of their job to field customer concerns and they are not doing it.

I told you all that they would be silent on the update posts…they always are.

+ tuaamin13 on January 5th, 2008 at 8:44 am said:

Well maybe somebody should fire you from your job because you don’t answer spam email. It’s about the same thing. Half of these 200+ comments are worthless.

LOL…im glad more of you are starting to see the light of what i’ve been saying for MONTHS…the lack of content in the PS store…lack of features that should have been there from launch…a system that cant even upscale its own games to full hd…with such “POWER” the PS3 possesses and its own designers/developers and engineers cant make the system upscale, msg while in game, rumble…etc…oh i can go on but i wont…its bad enough Solace will have something to say to me about this post…LOL

what makes it worse for SONY is the constant emphasis on the power of the cell processor…the abilities of the system to play Bluray and surf the internet…but am i correct in assuming we all bought a G’DAMN GAME SYSTEM??? the emphasis should be on the games first and everything else second and yet it seems its totally to the contrary…

we get half assed firmware with garbage features…and no features we the consumers actually want…btw i hope everyone is still enjoying their voice changers…

as far as “catch-up” SONY has ALOT of that still still yet to come…for a system thats apparently stronger, more powerful and advanced then the 360 it sure as hell does a hell of ALOT LESS!!!!!!!

im not trashing SONY at all…IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!! simply calling it like i see it…the proof is in the pudding…you fan boys can get bent out of shape all you want about how great the PS3 is…but the truth of the matter is SONY is serving up a HUGE plate of gravy with NO meat and potatoes.

and i offer a suggestion for those that look to the WEEKLY updates to make them “feel better”…LOL…dudes give up already…Sony will not answer you, they give you what they give you with no excuses or explanations…either accept it…or buy/play a 360…if it wasnt for my cuzin buying me Uncharted for xmas my PS3 would still be collecting dust…i havent even turned my PS3 on since i last regrettably played Warhawk which i’ll tell you is 9/9/07

the least you expect from SONY the least likely you are to get angry and upset…so expect nothing cuz thats all your gonna get!!!!!!

LOL peace

Oh yes and let us all not forget the HUGE list of delays for the DelayStation 3 and how that last continues to grow and grow and grow and grow…LOL

the one thing i’ve grown accustomed to in the past 14mths i’ve owned my DelayStation 3 is that when SONY says first Qtr of the yr they really mean last Qtr when they say 2007 they really meant 2008 and early 2008 means mid to late 2008 or early 2009

On the other hand, US Store hasn’t got the demo for The Club.

I’d die to see Crash Bandicoot 2/3, Spyro 2/3, and Syphon Filter 2/3 in the American store. That’s all I ask.

+ tuaamin13 on January 5th, 2008 at 10:56 am said:

Hey Loucifer, why don’t you buy a dev kit and make some PS3 games. Since you think you can make them so easily, go ahead and do it. They recently cut the price of the dev kit by 50%. Go and do that for the next 2-3 years (how long it takes to make a good game, not shovelware), then come back and tell us how it was.

@Loucifer

My thoughts exactly.


214

+ Gregero on January 5th, 2008 at 6:16 pm said:

I can easily agree with Loucifer about the endless delays and the much needed but sorely overlooked features. Makes one feel like Sony just doesn’t care about what they give us.

Mizuguchi stated it will only be on XBLA but I think us Sony fanboys deserve a little loyalty here

@Loucifer

I realize that you never said you can make a game. You and I seem educated enough to write coherent posts, unlike 219. I was just saying, you seem like you have a haughty enough attitude that you can do better than Sony. So I am inviting you to do it. It’s as simple as that. No, I do not feel shafted by the amount of content on the PSN, because frankly, I don’t buy it regularly. I barely have enough time for the games I have in BD form, so I have no need for PSN stuff. As for themes and stuff, there’s plenty user generated ones over at PSU. Most of them aren’t half bad.

So, Xbox 360 users get the Rock Band content on Wednesday, and PlayStation 3 users have to wait until Thursday? It’s one day, I know, but still… lame, Sony. Very lame. Put stuff up when it’s ready like MS does, not just once a week.

+ Loucifer on January 10th, 2008 at 10:07 am said:

@tuaamin13

If i had the know how to tackle that challenge i totally would…and the game i would make would be rated M not E or T…it would be in full HD 1080p like all the competitors games…not the 720p that SONY is happy with so there would not be a need to upscale it…oh wait the PS3 doesnt upscale…LOL…and more importantly i wouldnt set a release date for 2007 and delay it till 2009 lol

ACTUALLY I’D JUST DO WHAT EVERYONE ELSE DOES…MAKE IT FOR THE 360 AND PORT THE PIECE OF S*** TO THE PS3
