Playstation Store Multiplayer Online games lies

[ Edited ]
4 replies 226 views Edited Apr 21, 2013

 

There are a lot of games showing in the "multiplayer online" category in the playstation store, that are not multiplayer.

This causes a lot of confusion and also is lying to customers to buy a game for features it doesn't have.

It's like trying to sell you a smartphone without internet.

 

Some examples are (at least at the time I'm writing this post):

Guacamelee, the Cave, Rayman origins and labyrinth legends (currently free for PS plus).

Are you confusing multiplayer with local co-op?

No...

Multiplayer Online clearly stands for  online Co-op.

 

Local co-op is only multiplayer, not multiplayer online as the playstation store calls this category, there is actually no "local multiplayer" category.

I just looked and there are indeed many games that should not be in that category.  There are even PS2 classics which from what I've heard have disabled any online features.  I just found a PS1 classic in there as well.  It seems that any "multiplayer" game has been mistakenly identified by the filter as "online multiplayer."
