EU PS3 owners

posted by sc4recrow on - last edited - Viewed by 5.5K users

Seriously. PC owners are kicking off all over the place about waiting until Friday. European PS3 owners don't even have a date! Why? How different can EU PS3 be to the rest of the world's?! This is crazy!

Please, any answers as to why and when.

  • Why? Ask Sony. When? Ask Sony.

  • Are we assured it's Sony's fault. If so then I will.

  • It figures that we have to wait, I got all excited when I found out it was coming out on Friday then dissapointed when I found out that my version hasn't a date yet :(

  • Well that sucks I was hoping to play it on Friday :( here is to still hoping though

  • Who has confirmed that its actually Sony EU's fault? I've heard that certification is harder for the EU, but you'd think that experienced companies that care about their customers would actually...y'know, realise this and try their best to avoid any mistakes? Especially after a PR ****storm in their forums. Christ, *most* games on the EU release simultaneous with the US so its not impossible.

    Make no mistake i'm usually the first to blame Sony, not the developer for delays, but after Dungeon Defenders' treatment of the EU PSN audience (and the wider console audience) i cant say that its Sony's fault 100% of the time. To be honest, i think some devs just use certification as a convenient excuse for outright laziness and lack of respect for their fans.

    I've all but given up on Telltale, "ASAP" rings as comforting as "soon" with me and considering Telltale's history of silence it might as well be "whenever". Seriously i would not be surprised if we get a Trine 2 three month delay at this point. Optimistically speaking i still say 2 weeks minimum. Why say "ASAP" when you could say "next week"? Probably because its not actually ASAP.....

  • True didn't someone post that a Telltale employee said in a video that the UK would have a release on Friday?

    I hope so!

  • Well according to Sony it's Telltale's fault.

    People have been asking on the official PS Blog and these are the responses:

    WHY NO WALKING DEAD! "Telltale games are your best bet…"

    WHERES WALKING DEAD! "It’s not out for EU this week. Please contact Telltale games for any information."

    AMERICA HAS WALKING DEAD! "That should have been the plan, alas it isn’t. This is to do with Telltales so please chase them."

    So Telltale, are we talking a week or 2? Or longer than that because the EU PSN seems to get games months later sometimes, still waiting on Closure after 2/3months. Actually I'm not because I bought a PSN card, but hope this is out in the next 2 weeks so I dont have to use the US PSN again!

  • @noodle said: Who has confirmed that its actually Sony EU's fault? I've heard that certification is harder for the EU, but you'd think that experienced companies that care about their customers would actually...y'know.....

    Certification isn't the issue here. I have both consoles and the title is available on the EU XBLA store. I bought the season pass on PS3 as it was the better deal.

    I'm not going to go into the entitled "I WANT IT NOW" thing, because it really doesn't get us anywhere. I was super excited to see the title was out this week after such a long wait (just shy of three months instead of the advertised one month), so imagine my disappointment that I cant play it.

    As far as I know the EU playstation store only updates once per week - so I'd wager the earliest we'll get the title is on Wednesday. The fact that there's no concrete release date for EU PS3 customers is ridiculous, and neither Sony nor Telltale want to fess up and admit responsibility, from what I can see.

    It's really not good business practice. It's still a good product, and I'm sure you Xbox users are enjoying another one, but it really unsettles me as a consumer to constantly feel like something I paid for has been delayed seemingly until the developer/publisher is "good and ready". If there's a reason for the delay, then tell us - it would go a long way to restoring some good faith.

    If they were honest/realistic about their timelines from the beginning, or even had the integrity to address the issue after the fact, it would be much appreciated. This tight lipped approach isn't exactly going to make me leap on one of their products again - no matter how good it might seem. I was genuinely intrigued at this episodic gaming concept, but this experience has left me as cold as corpse!

  • I just wish they released the episode on all platforms on the same day, but that's just wishfull thinking lol
