Maybe.

I feel I have been a bit burned on some crowd funding efforts. It would have to be something special to get me on board.

No, never. They are a multibillion company, and if they don't feel like investing a few of their dollars into a game, I'm not risking the little money that I have on a game that might potentially suck or never even come out.
I am in the market of buying completed games, not in making interest-free loans to multinational corporations.

So is Valve, and Greenlight works just fine....so, in the end, if Sony puts together a system like Greenlight that gives any and all developers a platform to raise money for their projects, I assume it will be just as successful a model.

Irrelevant. The question was would I support it. I would not. All the best to them and all that do give them money. If those games turn out well and interest me, I will gladly buy them once they are finished.

Cannot comment on Valve, as I don't have a PC and never play those games.



I would crowd fund for the things I am interested in. A new Jak and Daxter, Patapon, Medevil, and Legend of Legaia would be the first off the top of my head.

The biggest thing I would crowd fund Sony for is a PlayStation Phone. I would give them at least 50K to get that started, but it would have to meet my expectations perfectly.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

So, one of the points you just made is irrelevant?  Gotcha.

How is Greenlight anything like Crowdfunding? Also, "Greenlight works fine" is a statement coming from ignorance. There is a myriad of problems with the Greenlight system which will take a lot of work and fine tuning to iron out.

I didn't say it wasn't without it's issues, but it has successfully worked for some IP, has it not?  And given the details of this system haven't been ironed out yet (which is why I said If Sony puts together a system like Greenlight) it's a bit early to tell.

Yeah, but how is Greenlight relevant to this topic? Greenlight isn't a crowdfunding platform, and it certainly doesn't have anything to do with Valve made games. It is a system for lesser known games to be given the opportunity to be sold through the Steam Store.



Nope, maybe Nintendo with Earthbound, but nothing else made by large organization I think should truly use Kickstarter.

Add: I never funded a kickstarter project, but I have bought finished kickstarter projects and loved them. (Shadowrun is amazing, you all should play it).

Also Add: Nintendo with Earthbound is the only one I can see funding maybe, because they will most likely want to see how big demand would be for the product.

It would set a pretty dangerous precedent to tell the larger game publishers that we're willing to fund their games for them. We already fork over enough cash for games and DLC as it is.

Doesn't matter how "large" you are. Crowdfunding is for people who don't have money. I haven't seen that stuff anywhere near Sony lately.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
