Tempest, are we going to be getting the new Hed Kandi event that EU Home is getting today, http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation
I've let folks know that we want it. Obviously, these things aren't as simple as "Hey SCEE, fire over that code for that thing, yeah?". But we're interested from a Community standpoint.
I can understand things like Hed Kandi being EU exclusive (it's a UK record label) but not game content for games with a NA release, and I especially can't understand stuff like this being release in EU first/only. Please let them know we want these LMOs, and everything else from ToyLogic including the Oshaberi (talking) Farm..ToyLogic is a JP company and was handled by SCEJ, so I'm not sure why you have to go through SCEE, but once again they get JP content first..
Looks like to me, Japan got the better end of the deal. Japan had to earn these rewards, and didn't have to fork out cash for them. Instead, they're charging users who play the Europe home server. I'm not too upset over it, but I can understand why people would want this here. It's a nice space.
The location of a source/studio/dev/artist of that size has little to do with when and where a piece of content shows up first, particularly when it comes to games content. How likely it is to impact awareness of the product being marketed plays a much larger piece. Sometimes, game developers or movie studios feel that the SCEA Home audience is already sufficiently aware of their product. Or at least to a degree that further awareness won't notably impact sales in this region.
But, your request is noted, and overall platform enjoyment is a factor that is always considered.
Thanks for the reply Tempest...that sheds some light on the game promotions, at least from the devs perspective, but what about the JP content like ToyLogic? Why did EU get that first this week, and will we be getting that here as well?
