Who else wants the Monthly Post to return?

10 replies 221 views Edited Nov 29, 2012

Seriously, it gets annoying always being led to think that we'll get something super great the next week only to be disapointed :\ Plus this way we don't buy games that turn out to be free later in that month.

Thats one reason we dont have monthly posts, they dont want people to compare the awesome stuff europe gets and the poop north america gets.

That is not the reason Morgan gave. First he said that customer feedback actually requested weekly posts, believe it or not. Also a weekly post would prevent any last minute changes that might happen if they were to do only monthly updates.

 

From what I understand, they are working towards doing both weekly and monthly updates (probably with disclaimers)...

lol im kidding, but it is a fair estimate to why they might do that considering the quality difference in the content the two continenents recieve.

They did a poll with an option for weekly update, monthly update or have both weekly and a monthly one at the same time, and both won by over 50%. But he said that doesn’t mean they will change the way they do things, which is just stupid.

It doesn't make any difference to me.  I can't access the content until it's week of release, anyway.

 

A weekly release results in more complaints (regarding EU vs NA) than a monthly release because people will complain as soon as new content is released.  If that were to be monthly, there would be a few days at the beginning of the month for the mass complaints, and then much fewer complaints whent the content is released each week.  Weekly releases result in mass complaints every week that content is revealed.

I think he does know (for the most part) what is coming a month in advance. IMO now that current version of PS+ is getting more content that before, there is the possiblity of something falling through, so it is safer to announce it just days in advance...
