Is Sony the Slant six of gaming corporations?

7 replies 290 views Edited Sep 2, 2012
I went on the store today. They have a future free to play game (dust) beta available to play, but only for ps plus users.

How the hell can you have a beta exclusive To a freaking free to play game?

Beta exclusives are just dumb because betas are for players to report bugs or for the free marketing, so you should want as many players to play as possible.

I think Sony is smoking dust in the 514

Let's just agree that PlayStation Plus is nothing more than a scam targeted at idiots.

Funny thing is the title not only doesn't make sense, the comparison of Slant Six but also Sony did not originate this. Microsoft did.

It's called a "perk". Look it up.

Usually scams aren't beneficial to the one being scammed.  I can transfer my save files via the cloud to any ps3 in my house (or anyone else's house).  I have received multiple free games that I would have eventually purchased, Infamous, Borderlands, Infamous 2.  I get discounts on other games that I purchase (CS:GO).  I get access to Beta's that the general populace doesn't, private Starhawk Beta, Dust 514 and more in the future.  I also never have to download any updates or ever sync my trophies, all patches are automatically downloaded for me.

 

I personally find all those things beneficial and have the finances to spend so am a Plus user.  Those things may not benefit you and if you subscribed to a service that didn't benefit you, I agree, you would be getting scammed.  But Sony would not be the scammer, you would just be reveling in your own stupidity at that point.

MAAN [Married And Always Nagged] Clan is recruiting, period. Also I NEED friends for Ghost Recon Coop/Guerilla/MP for trophies, will help you with trophies in return! Send me a friend invite with "Ghost Recon" in it.

I'm in the beta and I don't have PS+. I actually signed up for it like I was asked to.
