Rocket League was the best-selling game on PlayStation Store in July

Quality control definitely took a backseat to sales potential with 7 days to die. That games a mess, Telltale & Sony should be ashamed of themselves for selling it as a finished product.

And this surprises you because? You knew, or should have known, that it was unfinished as it’s still in Early Access on Steam, still classified as an alpha build and not even finished on PC yet (and probably never will be, as Early Access status is too often used as a shield against bad reviews), but they decided to shove out what they had as a full console release anyway.

Several people, including myself, posted questions in the developer’s announcement thread on this very blog asking why they thought this was appropriate, and unsurprisingly received no response from either the developer or the blog team.

Is it shameful that Sony permitted an unfinished, bug-ridden, Early Access product to get through QA without failing certification – Yes. Is it shameful that Telltale and the developers used the PC players money to fund a console port, rather than finishing the game for the people who’d already bought it – Yes. Is it shameful that they packaged an alpha version for console and ...

Telltale and Sony’s failings aside though, it doesn’t absolve the buyer of doing their own research – 5 minutes browsing the Steam page, Early Access reviews, and watching YouTube videos of the PC version should have raised enough red flags to warn anyone away.

what a lame chart. most of those games are either ports or remasters. this gen stinks.

7 Days to die is a bit of a mess but im still playing it. Fred any chance of clarity with the issue we are not allowed to mention? im really enjoying playing deadlight at the mo.

Huh… Maybe people are massively dropping their PS+ subscriptions and wanted to get the one game in there worth getting in 3 years :)

4.1

wouldn’t be much good buying it without the ps+ subscription though for a predominantly online multiplayer game.

Heh, I practically own all the titles in the Vita top ten. Maybe I should have picked up Adventures of Mana…

Rocket league is no longer a game……it’s just something I do everyday.

+1 for post 8

I think its great that a game that was given away free on Ps plus, can still be a top seller! Well done on creating such a fun and addictive game that also has great longevity

Rocket League… Rocket League…

Isn’t that the game that should be cross-play between PC/One/PS4 but somehow isn’t, because?

I remember Sony being the white knight of cross-play some years ago, when they touted that playing Portal 2 or FF14 with friends on different platforms was a welcome feature. Looks like someone in high places misplaced the memo.
