The PlayStation Store team is curious to get your feedback on this year's PlayStation Store PLAY 2013 event. If you need a refresher, here's the condensed version:
Step 1: Take the super short survey by clicking HERE.
Step 2: Drop your thoughts in this thread. Try to be as specific as possible. What did you like? What were your favorite games? What would you want to see done differently? Thoughts on the pre-order stuff and the associated PS Plus discounts. Thoughts on the rewards? THOUGHTS!
Thanks and appreciate your feedback!
One thought is to have demos of the games before they release on the store. That way you can actually know what an item is like before you make a blind purchase.
The only demo from this year's selection so far has been from Ibb and Obb. I liked the demo, but since it came out after the pre-sale was already over I didn't bother buying the game.
Having money back on game purchases is nice and all, but not all that effective when you put the totals together. You're not spending more than you're saving. From what I remember, the pre-purchase reservations would permit you $8 for three of the games (originally priced at $10) while DuckTales nets you $12 (or $15 for the actual price). If you bought them all with Plus you get $10 back, but you're also spending $36 just to get $10 back from it. That isn't a fascinating offer from the way I look at it.
1) Survey Taken
2) I am not really interested in the 4 games that are part of this specific event. For the small games I more prefer turned based or puzzle style games or games like Pixle Junk Monsters. I grew up gaming in the 80's, basically all we had were side scrollers
As far as pre-orders on the PSN I'm more of a "physical disc that I can resell if I hate the game" type of gamer. However, if the PSN had a good demo of a game and offered the same game for pre-order I may consider it, I'd just hate to pre-order a digital copy, try it, then not like the game. If I did that with The Last Of Us I would not have been happy as I had no urge to continue playing once I beat it the first time, I got rid of it.
I was slightly interested in Ducktales, but it wasn't enough for me to jump into it. I like the idea of 'money back bundles' though.
Survey Done! I bought all 4 of the PLAY titles this year and enjoy all of them. In the future though please stop giving a static theme with these games. Make it a Dynamic Theme or an avatar from the game or something please. Keep the Plus Discounts coming and keep the reward for buying multiple games PSN Cash. Don't make the reward a crappy add on for a game no one cares about like that other console did for their summer arcade games this year.
Myself i did not buy any of those titles,However..I still feel it's a good deal and has to be alot of fun for those that do like them.I'm more of a big title guy myself..mostly...took the survey and just might give duck tails a try...lol...
