Why is Sony Allowing This on PSN?

40 posts in this topic

It’s a game. It runs enough to pass quality control and the developer paid the developer fees. 

 

Any other really obvious questions that can expound the depths of your insight into other topics?

I remember this too, I think it was on one of Kinda Funny's podcasts and he said something like "Well how do you truly know a bad game is bad? What defines it?" :facepalm: 

 

I'm guessing "Just look at it" isn't valid criteria to tell if a game is bad for Sony xD

Sony* don’t care if a game is bad or not, they just let whatever on as long as devs pay to be there and it passes their QA. QA which is pretty crappy if we are being honest.

maybe Sony want a game for kids on PSN?

 

So you're saying Sony wants to ruin people's childhoods? :D

If nothing else, the game seems very friendly for trophy guide writers.

People like me then lol :P

I personally give it a 10/10, the story, the racing, the music, the graphics are truly breathtaking... Hope it gets a sequel

This game is tripe. If you're a sap that paid $9.99 for this, just give me your money - you no longer deserve it. Actually, that's wrong -  I'm a sap for paying $.99 for it. 

 

HOWEVER, everyone needs to read the product description on the PSN store for the game. I love these broken English write-ups.

I never thought I would say a game isn't worth $0.99 but this one is a special kind of bad. At least it's short.

I bought this for my 5-year old to improve strategy and hand-eye coordination (along with pikmin for the GameCube and Shaun white skateboarding) this also helped to give him something to look forward to playing if he behaved the WHOLE day in school.

 

So, you may not like the idea of the game, but it’s definitely for kids. Anywho, he completed it today (got all the trophies on his own) and I couldn’t be prouder. 

But you could buy him a good Kart Racer instead of this.

Plenty of better games for kids on PSN. A Hat in Time, Rayman, etc. Kind of parent buys their kid this’s over a good game? 

A sadistic one...😈

Brought to you by the dev who created gems like Horse Racing and Dark Mystery.

 

Not surprising...one bit.

And I bought all three recently. To be fair though, I only paid 2.78 USD for all three and I have (almost) no shame in my acquisition of trophies.

Feels like PSN is becoming more "Steam-like" allowing sub-par games like this past the gates, hoping to swindle some poor soul into buying them...realizing that it's a curse that was just released on your account. Funny how PSN can take free mobile games, slap a price on it, and put it out to the public like some gold spray-painted turd...

No retailer places limits on quality other than the product being functional, doesn't break the hardware, doesn't lie in marketing or steal content from other devs.

Most games that turn on and play will meet those requirements. 
It isn't a PSN thing. It is a capitalism thing. 

If you need a 3rd party to curate a store front for you then you will need to look elsewhere.

Bad games have been sold on PSN. Bad games have been sold in Target.

The 'M' part of MSRP is for manufacturer. The manufacturer of the game are the ones slapping prices on console ports of free mobile games. 
I am not sure of any rule stating that a free game on one platform has to be free on all platforms.

If you’re talking about the trophy list then it does look too easy, like, way too easy and this is coming from someone that found platinums and 100%’s difficult that others found easy.

Man, this game. The 500 coins trophy didn't pop, and I didn't notice until after I got the 1200 coins trophy. Had to delete my save data and do it again. Boring, but at least it popped the 2nd time around.
