Sony has sold SoE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Now we all know that Sony has been going through some financial issue but never did I think they would sell SoE, it brought some great F2P  games. Hopefully this will start to allow Sony to move back into the right direction and bring some proper games again.

Quote: 
     "As part of this transition, SOE will now become Daybreak Game Company. This name embodies who we are as an organization, and is a nod to the passion and dedication of our employees and players. It is also representative of our vision to approach each new day as an opportunity to move gaming forward. "

Wow... shit.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Aaaannnnnnd:

 

The announcement hints that the former SOE might be looking to take some of its properties to systems aside from the PC and PlayStation consoles they currently live on. "We will continue to focus on delivering exceptional games to players around the world, as well as bringing our portfolio to new platforms, fully embracing the multi-platform world in which we all live [emphasis added]," Daybreak president John Smedley said in a statement.

 

Smedley was even more explicit about the company's multi-platform future in a tweet following the announcement: "Can't wait to make Xbox One games!" And in a post on the company's official forums, the Daybreak team states outright that they will be developing for "PlayStation and Xbox, mobile and more!"

Nice try SOE, you won't get off my shitlist just by changing names.

The only game I even heard about that this studio made is everquest.   So I guess is not that much of a loss.

Great games? 

You mean butchering Star Wars: Galaxies? Pushing PS2 to be more and more Free 2 Pay? 

Good goddamn riddance. 

+1

Lets see now how the new company will handle all of the game and the new ones. This Colombus Nova seems to have a good amount of cash.

Didn't SOE lose it's ass in 2013?  Don't know how they faired in 2014 but last I heard they took a big hit?

 

Werent those the guys that made h1n1?

And then place premium air drops ?

 

h1n1 is swine flu, I don't think they had anything to do with that :P.  But yes, they are the ones responsible for h1z1 and its blunders.

There hasn't been a proper update to PS2 in ages. I lost interest a long time ago mid last year after putting many hours into the game. I could probably be considered a vet on the ground. There are many reasons why the game made me lose interest but for the most part it's the performance issues and the game just didn't take it far enough. When I say not far enough I mean they simplified the entire games mechanics too far in terms of vehicles. What I personally would have liked to see was War Thunder level of vehicle fights but with soldiered on the ground as well on the huge scale of Planetside. Maybe the next game will be better, but I doubt they will ever make it. Also why did they ever make it Free 2 Play, it could have maybe worked better if it was £100 for the game and you get everything. Leveling up in games is just an artificial way of keeping the player interested but that isn't fun i the least.
