@255

What are you talkin about? The people who bought Rag Doll before didn’t throw away money because they were willing to buy the game at that price.

I’m also incredibly confused as to how I’m the spoiled one when you guys are the ones demanding a refund or some sort of compensation because you could not take part of this promotion.

I also don’t care about how many games you have, what was the point of that statement?

@ gettinmoney

You said and I quote “I have 21 PSN games and 37 Blu-Ray games.” It sounded like your were trying to say I haven’t bought enough games from Sony to complain, well I have. I’m calling you spoiled because you sound like a rich kid that doesn’t give a heck about someone getting ripped off. When you find a job in this recession then holla at me.

+ mixenitup on May 14th, 2009 at 4:22 pm said:

Pshhh I am a huge supporter of PSN too I have spent $600+ just on PSN games and addons. (don’t believe check my trophies.) On top of that I have been a sprint cell Customer loyaly for 10 years.

I also bought this game on day one as I bought it for PC on steam back in the day and loved it. ( this version not as good IMO so barely played) I agree that if they had just discounted it and not given it away I wouldn’t feel as cheated. But then again I don’t think they should never give freegames away.

I see that it is not sony’s fault or anyones for that matter because thats just how business is at the moment. But the day one buyers really seem to catch the raw end of this deal all the time. this will just create a situation where noone ever buys a game when it comes out and companies fail left and right. I wish I knew a solution so I wasn’t just offering complaints but something should be done to even these situations out. (and the whole “pre-order/buy-day-1″ and get this gold gun or unlock early is a lame way to try to do it IMO.

+ gettinmoney662 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

@271

It’s because some guy said I probably haven’t bought a PSN game before and that’s why I don’t know why you guys are complaining.

Do you see me complaining that Bionic Commando is now half the price it was when I bought it? No, because I understand that sales and promotions happen.

Anyways, I do have a job, hence the reason why I was able to buy the games that I have. If the recession is hurting you so bad, maybe you shouldn’t be buying so many video games?


281

+ cell989 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

Reading all this comments makes me realize that no matter what is done some people just cant stop [DELETED]…. *sigh*

Some people just cant understand what a promotion is. Guys the game will be back at full price next week, this is just SPRINT been totally awesome. There is no one you can really complain about this to.


282

+ gettinmoney662 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:27 pm said:

@278

Look up the phrase “early adopter.” People who buy things on day one always pay more than people who wait. That’s the price you pay for getting the item on the first day of its release.


283

+ Neville718 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:30 pm said:

@280

what he is trying to say is… would YOU be more pissed if you paid for an item that turned up half price later on or an iten that turn up free? GET IT!!!

@282 read my post again I wouldn’t care if it were cheaper. I know that games depreciate over time. as do cars etc. your not going to be able to conceive anything that I don’t understand. So come at me like your not just a smart alec and I may respect your opinion.


286

+ libregkd on May 14th, 2009 at 4:32 pm said:

Seriously, complaining about a free game?

Its a promotion, do you people not know what that means? The game is free for a limited time and then will return to normal price.

Seriously, every company does it. I bought a movie from Wal-Mart about a week ago for 25 bucks. This week they have it on sale for 10. Its idiotic to assume that a company is going to reimburse you because an item that you bought is currently under a promotion/sale.

+ libregkd on May 14th, 2009 at 4:34 pm said:

Also, it seems a large amount of you fail to understand that the game is only free for a week. After that everyone who wants the game has to pay for it like the early adopters did.

So people can’t complain over $5 but they can complain over $10?

My comment to yours was one of the few I’ve made in this blog that wasn’t a smart ass comment. It was a direct response and explanation to when you said “But the day one buyers really seem to catch the raw end of this deal all the time.”

@gettin – You still don’t get it. It’s not about it being CHEAPER, it’s about it costing NOTHING and it was only released a few weeks ago. It’s not the same. Not at all. That is why I feel cheated.

The term early adopters usually only applies to hardware, not software. I don’t see Apple giving away free IPhones.

+ mixenitup on May 14th, 2009 at 4:39 pm said:

taken out of context i see your point. but in relation to promotional deals as that is @290
the topic of the blog. yes it is a very comon thing to say ” you early adopters get to play early that is your reward” is rediculous.

And to tell me to look up a comon phrase that all know is being a smart alec.

@292

So if the game was $0.99, you wouldn’t be complaining? So you’re saying that this game being offered for free is worse than someone buying a PS3 before the $100 price cut? The reason the game is free is because it was only $10 to begin with.

But like what was previously advised, wait a couple years before you buy anything. That way, you’ll never miss out on a $10 price cut again!

+ kronos262 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:46 pm said:

I have to comment, as I love people saying for those who supported Rag doll, can we get a refund?

How is it supporting them if you want a refund? This stuff happens all the time, and this is BUSINESS to the person who said that. This stuff happens all the time, and like someone said if it wasn’t something that was what they bought they wouldn’t be complaining. Also if it was an older game, they complain about that too!
