You’d think Sony would be very happy to release PlayStation Store games at the developer’s request, but we’ve been hearing for a few weeks now that the Japanese giant is less than helpful in that section. The latest to speak of is Lucas Pop of Return the F the Bra Din Fame, which is currently half the price on practically all platforms – except you guessed it, PlayStation 4.
Asked if there would be a discount on Sony’s system, Pope replied:
In solitude, it doesn’t mean much, but this isn’t the first time we’ve heard such stories. In fact, an eagle-eyed reset era poster has created all sorts of personal complaints from developers who have been unable to release their games on the PS store. That’s really surprising, as we can only imagine promotions like this overall sales increase for developers, of which the Japanese giant offers 30 percent cooling.
This should be very frustrating for their livelihood teams on the line, and while the PlayStation typically has an installed base that is too large to ignore – look, it may not be a particularly attractive platform to develop the PS4. Hopefully this is something that the manufacturer can fix quickly, because no doubt it looks bad from where we are sitting.
Heck, this author would have bought Obra Dean’s return at half price! This is bad news for everyone!
