    Default Sony's CEO bashes RIFT??

    Over at Massively, an article there interviewing Smedley about what Sony has up and coming had him saying something in particular about "GENERIC COPYCATS"....................


    "There's some stuff coming out in the next two or three months, MMO-wise, and a lot of it is generic copycats of other games," Smedley tells Eurogamer.

    Is this a shot at RIFT among other games? I guess we could debate that for days....I'm of the opinion that executive officers of competing companies should be a bit more conservative in what they say.

    But then again, its Smedley....Right?

    I don't think that he insinuates one game or another as far as I can tell from your quote. Link maybe?

    Cause SONY has a lot of MMO's worth playing right? I've always considered them some snobby craptastic developer personally. They put out a few good titles but they're few and far between in my eyes.

    Default Bashing

    With all the new MMO's coming out some people are feeling the heat I guess. Rift-Tera ect. they will get alot of bashing in the coming days I bet. It's kinda good for the competition, people will then investigate these other MMO's.

    Personally after what SOE did to pretty much all of their mmo's I tend not to take them seriously...

    SOE CEO: "Hey gais we launched EQ3 and it's freaking awesome!"
    SOE CSR: "I know and sales are great!"
    SOE CEO: "What if..and hear me out."
    SOE CSR: "ya?"
    SOE CEO: "What if we just remake the game right now?"
    SOE CSR: "Dude that's a great idea!"
    SOE CEO: "I know it has worked on so many of our games!"

    Most the higher ups have no idea.
    Do you think they even take the time to play these games?? NO

    Do these highers ups even have an idea on the programming? NO

    It is always about the $$$$

    just take a look at the other games that are out there
    Some were great but now suck
    Some suck and now even suck worse

    It is always about the $$$$

    Smedley has balls to be talking about another company.
