Im going to tell you why and when i find the link i looked at earlier it will confirm not only what i was thinking but what quite a few other people were thinking as well.
Using the server issues for a game that basically is dependent on it is not a excuse for not releasing the free version to the masses,real reason is the game bombed at the review stage and got underwhelming reviews,basically because the online was fooked.
Now I'm not going to knock the game because personally even in its single player only mode its absolutely superb and a joy to look at and a joy to play,but the fundamental issue here is…….Its online and its not working,well it is for a minute or two at a time and then the usual error online messages scrolls across the screen as your playing.
Not only that i was all set for some The last of Us multiplayer tonight only to find that not working and a Friends list that wasn't working either,thought my mate was not on but he text me to confirm it was not saying i was online and me neither him with the usual spinning wheel in the friends list.
A quick check on my iPad on Google told me the network was down and having issues…
Now i can not remember for the past 3 months a single week without something going wrong with this Sony Network,be it a firmware update,down for scheduled maintenance ,down for unscheduled maintenance,down for Dos attacks,the list is endless and its becoming a bit of a farce.
If this was my ISP i would be tearing up my contract and going elsewhere,but what do you do when you are dependent on a single server provider SONY for playing online on there [censored] service.
Im telling you now and i have already said it,yes Xbox Has issues but as much as i bash the Xbox One there online service is way in advance of Sony and they better hurry up and get the server side set up running a lot more stable than it is because I'm getting fed up.
At this moment in time if my best mate and Nelly from these forums had Xbox One then Far Cry 4 would be bought on that system for the simple fact is i know i would not encounter the many issues associated with the Playstation network at present and since its become a paid service.
It actually ran better before it was subscription based and it was free,i really don't know whats going on with there infrastructure and the money they recoup in the multi millions for this service.but I'm telling you now,us Sony supporters that have been having a laugh at the Xbox One and its original reveal and its resolution problems may have the very last laugh because this is quite frankly out of control.
And i wouldn't care to hoots that Far Cry 4 was 900P on the Xbox One against 1080P on the playstation 4 because all i want is stability online and Sony is not providing it.
