In this case I wouldn't have gotten nearly so annoyed if Telltale had clearly communicated in advance that any PS3 special bonus content was forthcoming for the PC as well. Instead we got total silence on the matter. So when PS3 owners start showing up out of the blue and talking about their special NutriSpecs I fancy myself quite justified to ask what is going on.
I can understand the perspective of other forum users who personally don't mind this sort of thing. But when Telltale employees begin mocking their own customers for speaking out, belittling people who have paid money for a game and thus feel they should receive the same gameplay as other customers get, an ugly line is crossed.
I never thought I'd see the day that one of my favorite game writers insulted me. Telltale formerly was regarded for the politeness of its employees on these forums. Obviously those days are long past.
Let me make it clear: I LOVE Telltale. It's my absolute favorite game company. But when I see it engaged in what might *even possibly* be construed as questionable practices, I feel obligated to speak out. If you don't want to hear my critique, you might as well close these forums.
I dunno. Personally, I like that the developers can speak freely, and I'm pretty sure they have spoken freely for years now. It means they're people
and not PR tools with leashes around their necks(it's a lot less kinky than it sounds).
The issue is that you're very much over-reacting. Even if it was PS3-exclusive, so what? We get an exclusive DVD, exclusive bonus content, an exclusive forum, a free episode, TF2 items, exclusive downloads, and coupons. PS3 users got...five bucks off. And the ability to play on a PS3.
This scale does not look like one that is heavily balanced in the favor of anybody but the people who buy from Telltale's store. We have gotten everything we were promised and, well, more
. I don't think an after-game distraction for PS3 users should not have been a big deal at all.
