About both games or just Sony?

Wow.
So now I'm anti-sony? Because I disagree with them.

Good to know.

Very stupid by Sony, but there are alternative ways to getting the game. They should still remove this because it will hurt their image.

"bought a 80gb game for my 40gb ps3? FUUUUUUU Sony, i don't read store pages, you are evil"

"this game cost me 60€? but my random friend told me it was 40€, FUUUU Sony you are evil, i don't read store pages"

My opinion has swayed, I think we should really protect these people.

Where were you here?

I could literally, replace Sony with Microsoft and your post would fit perfectly with those defending MS.

Its a fucking choice, you are not forced into buying a PLUS dependent DClub.

Buy the disk, problem solved LOL hard ain't it.



I think people need to get real about PSN and XBox Live. They cost money to develop and maintain. In each case it is a service which should not be free if you want it to be a quality service. I have never had any qualms about paying for XBox Live because of the host of benefits that it brought to the table. PSN is now a quality service too but if you want it to continue to compete with XBox Live, Sony needs the money to invest in it, and it can no longer afford to divert the funds from other sources of revenue.

Sony needs to encourage people to pay for PSN so you can expect more of this.

So DRM is fine as long as you have the option.

Stopped after this first sentence.... That was EXACTLY the argument used against MS. The fact that it was REQUIRED online connection

I don't think you know what DRM means.

It stands for Digital Rights Management, for 10$ you give sony your right to own the game. DRM, end of story.

Not at all because this is entirely optional and MS was forcing things down people's throats, like they still are forcing the 100 bucks Kinect.



I will not be playing the free version or buying this game retail unless this is a mistake and clarified. I was looking forward to it too.  The simple point of this is, if people support this particular version, meaning the PS+ upgrade version tied to subscription but also paid for, they are telling Sony that this type of business practice and ethic is acceptable.  It spells huge problems down the road.  It would be the exact same as if people didn't rage and not pre-order X1 because of the pre-180 practices they tried to pull over on everyone.

 Now comes Xbox One, which in turn, does even more to "trick" consumers into things they will surely regret.

No sane person would buy the PS+ Upgrade unless they don't know better (ignorant), they really value 10$, or they do not want the physical copy(some people are going digital only).

For the first they are being taken advantage of. Just like MS has been doing for years, hence the thread title and OPs article.

The Latter is even worse, because that touted "choice" does not exist for them. For them the game they paid for is locked behind a paywall.

This is a truly dangerous prescedent.

play the free version or buy the game. there is no DRM.

 

edit: OP, the game is NOT locked behind a paywall. You are trolling and I can't believe the thread is still going.
