Compensation for developers over Playstation Network fail?

Yesterday, we at the Gadget Helpline told you of the reported effects and financial losses caused by the Playstation Network’s epic security fail on some of the top publishers in the gaming industry. Today, third-party developers are in uproar and baying for compensation from Sony.

Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert suggests that developers will lose faith in Sony and pull their wares from the network if not offered proper amends for damage done to business since the shutdown of Playstation online services on April 20th.

He tells IndustryGamers “I have no idea yet what Sony are going to do to help developers such as ourselves but I have a feeling they are thinking about doing something or they will lose developers which of course is pretty bad for them”

A few days ago, games publisher Capcom was questioned as to whether they had been offered some kind of compensation from Sony for losses in revenue since the network outage and hack attack 3 weeks ago – the company declined a response.


The Playstation Network gamers are once again left disappointed as the promised date of resumed service by May 31st has once again become myth as Patrick Seybold, Sony spokesperson states in yet another blog “I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can’t give you an exact date as it will likely be at least a few more days”.

We have received many comments from gamers who are very disappointed with Sony’s service and attitude over the Playstation Network security scandal. Microsoft will counteract by extending easier PayPal payments to the Xbox Live network in coming weeks. Will you join the “X-odus”? Or sit tight for a PSN solution – whenever it chooses to present itself?
