I think the lesson we have all learned from this update is that no matter what Sony does, people will complain. I have yet to see an update thread without a small number of people [DELETED] and whining about something.

Yay more PSone releases keep them coming and a free PSN game sweet.

@getting – Stop trying to act like $10 means nothing, if you’re rich, then fine, most of us aren’t, so $10 is $10 bucks. Aside from it being free, you’re missing the point that IT JUST CAME OUT LIKE A MONTH AGO. This isn’t hardware, it’s a GAME.

That combined with the fact that it’s free is what is upsetting.

Yes it’s upsetting when you buy something like a PS3 and months later it’s cheaper. But this isn’t the same scenario.

Most people realize that. I, like most of the Rag Doll Kung Fu buyers didn’t have a clue that it would be given away for FREE. That’s unheard of in business!

WE’RE NOT WHINING, WERE UPSET THAT IT WAS GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE WEEKS AFTER IT’S RELEASE. IT’S THE DAMN PRINCIPLE OF THE THING. IS THAT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?

bad timing on the ‘free’ thing; alittle earlier around release would’ve been nice. – though

What principle? This happens all the time in business, do you have no idea what a promotion is? Why would they choose something old, they wanted to choose something new. You want to know why they chose this? because it got horrible reviews, and didn’t sell well.


307

+ gettinmoney662 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:54 pm said:

@303

If $10 is a significant amount of money to you, maybe you shouldn’t be spending it on a PSN game?

Nice update Sony, Free Game = Awesome. Glad I didn’t already buy it. Haha

@299

My favorite smart ass returns man you either must work for Sony or have a sissy job where you really don’t have to work for your money because you REALLY sound apathetic with your money. What’s the point of talking about a rumored PS3 price cut(we are not talking about hardware we are talking about software). I can wait a month or two for a PSN game after it’s launch it’s no big deal to me. You go ahead and waste your money I’ll save mine.

The next thing you know, people who bought Rag Doll Kung Fu some time next month is going to complain about paying 10 bucks because people this week were able to get it free.

But hey, for those complaining about the free game, atleast people who won’t be able to take advantage of this game will pay the same as you did :D


312

+ red5ive on May 14th, 2009 at 4:57 pm said:

i’m in Canada. is it free for us as well?


313

+ FabiHurtz83 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:58 pm said:

No one said it’s significant, but to a lot of people that is an HOUR of pay. REALITY SON. That’s is REALITY.

Giving away something FOR free that cost MONEY a few weeks ago is unheard OF. When has MCDonalds given away something for free after it released a new product? Never, they always give it away at first so people can try it and get the word out.

It never works the other way around.


314

+ gettinmoney662 on May 14th, 2009 at 4:59 pm said:

@309

I’m talking about the price cut that already happened. $10 is little more than a hour’s worth of work at a minimum wage job.

Like I said before, if the recession is hurting you so bad, you shouldn’t be spending money on video games.


315

+ mixenitup on May 14th, 2009 at 4:59 pm said:

wow there is a lot of thought police on here today ” you must not think that way!” “you are poor and a whinner because you said you felt a certain way” “you should feel bad about yourself” LOL never fails to entertain me.

@313

The difference is that when McDonald’s offers a hamburger for free, it is to get you to try it, like it, and hopefully come back to buy it again.

With games, you can’t do that. Once they get it, they’re not coming back to buy it again.


317

+ kronos262 on May 14th, 2009 at 5:01 pm said:

Ok you lost Fabi.

McDonald’s has done that ALL THE TIME.

Newest Example KFC! New grilled chicken and they give away free coupons.

Whenever McDonalds or Burger King, or anyone has a new product, THEY ALWAYS HAVE PROMOTIONS to give it away for free.

You lost.

I just find it ridiculous for someone to say they “SUPPORTED” a company then demand their money back. That is not support.

I got money, the bills are paid, and I’m living good but I don’t like to waste money at all(I’m just old school like that so don’t hate). I will continue to buy new PS3 games from eBay for $30 or below but as far as PSN games NO WAY.


325

+ FabiHurtz83 on May 14th, 2009 at 5:06 pm said:

I lost? I didn’t know I was playing something. While I know the comparison wasn’t exactly the best one, it’s still not the same. You guys know exactly what I’m saying, it’s just your immature enough to want to say something like “You lost” or “u got pwned” or maybe you’re just really out of it.

Give me some examples of when in business something like this happens. I’m talking about someone SELLING something and weeks later giving it away for free. Don’t include food. Something that you only need to buy ONCE.

If you give me some good examples, then I will join you in saying SHUT UP to everyone who is upset.

Within a month of Hawx’s release, it had a $20 price drop. That’s twice as much as this $10 price drop.

Welcome to the other team.

+ FabiHurtz83 on May 14th, 2009 at 5:24 pm said:

You’re using your logic all wrong. That is a fallacy. You did not give me the sample example. I asked you to give me an example of something being GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE A MONTH after it’s release.

I have said it over and over, it’s not the price, it’s the principal.

Keep trying, and like I thought, you can’t find an example. Cause it’s unheard of!

@329

Once again, it’s cause the game was only $10 to begin with. You can’t compare this to other games that cost more and you can’t look at it as a percentage drop.

A $10 price cut for this game and giving it away for free is the exact same thing.

Welcome to the other team.

Mixed feelings this week about the update. Very pleased about the demo for Zen pinball and will definitely DL.

Unfortunate that there’s no freebie available in Canada. Hopefully we might see a similar makeup deal in our future. Give Bell a ring! (awshucks the many layers of my wit)

@Grace thanks for answering questions, even if the answers are not what we want to hear. A simple “we’re working on it, but there’s no date as of yet” would be fine. Oh wait forget that last part … that’s for my comments on tomorrows video store update, and corresponding question as to why it’s not available in Canada ;)

Gamers these days are to stuck on themselves. This “I’m entitled to everything” train of thought is getting old fast.

You all complain when no games are released. Then complain that prices are to high. Then they offer it for free, And what do you do? You complain, you are not satisfied with anything.

You all are the problems with this generation of gaming.
