Jaffe: PSN game sharing is horse dung | PS3Blog.net
PSN game sharing is a feature that does not excite David Jaffe. In fact, just recently, he had some very choice words for PSN’s feature.
As you should know by now, game sharing allows a gamer to download a game purchase on PSN, and then later on share it to up to five other PS3 or PSP systems. This does not sit well with Jaffe at all, who has also released Calling All Cars via PSN.
Making his true feelings for the PSN game sharing public via his Twitter, he said:
@zKAPOWz No, but I thin game sharing on PSN is utter horse shit. Why is it ok to buy a game and give it to 2-5 peeps 4 free? Insane!
David Jaffe is cool and all but I disagree with his thoughts as a gamer. It is one of the highlights of getting a PS3 and making online transactions and being able to get them again without a big fuss. As a developer however, I guess I can see where he’s coming from. But I’m on my 2nd ps3 and I can proudly I’ve spent over 100 bucks on Psn and if I had to buy all of them over again because my ps3 blew up on me I think that is just cruel. What do you guys have to say about this?
