View Full Version : PS2 Discrimination, for Street Fighter Fans ;_;
You heard the news...Its coming...
Capcom Fighting Evolution - For PS2 And Xbox
The Discrimination? XBOX LIVE, and PS2 OFFLINE
Street Fighter The Anniversary Collection - For PS2 And Xbox
The Discrimination? THE JAPAN VERSION IS BETTER!, oh sorry that's not the main point...XBOX LIVE IS AVAILABLE FOR XBOX PEOPLES...and PS2 Is once again offline
:!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:
Kill Xbox Kill Xbox Kill Xbox :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
The reason it is online for Xbox is the same reason alot of games are online for ps2, Microsoft controls the Xbox live servers so.. all Capcom has to do is rake in the money made from the game being online
if it was to have a online mode for the ps2 capcom would have to sort out servers and stuff themselves which costs money
Yeah I know, it's just a discrimination... :(
Exactly as GU said, Sony doesnt run the servers for the ps2 online games the game manufacturer runs and updates the server which cost's more money then to just make the mode available and let someone else run it and give you money for it.
-_- Exactly as I said, I know I just said it was a discrimination and why not just not let both of them offline...
And Gu and I told you why It isn't online for both and it is also the reason there are more online Xbox games
Hey there Rebon, I was just wondering if payments will be close to the 1st. of the month this month. I know I sound desperate...lol, but I gotta use some of the money until I get paid from my other job to pay off credit card and car insurance bills....
im in the same boat as justin...
I'll make a special effort to help you guys out ;)
So....whats the word on this?
Right, I've sent payments to:
Jing - I need your PayPal addy as I don't have it written down!

Also, are exclusive interviews worth the same as news articles?
oh and me and Justin's game vids...dunno if that counts
ps3 Wanna be
lol aren't game videos more of a hobby than a contribution to ps3land?? :lol:
Anyway, thanks for the payment Kieran. Appreciate it.
Rebon, my Paypal's the same as my e-mail... email@example.com
I must say, that is a nice feeling. I just made $25 for 1 article and 2 previews.
I am assuming we don't get payed for Editorials?
ps3 Wanna be
I think we do (I don't know for sure though, since I haven't finished writing any :P)
Well if we do get payed for Editorials, My editorial- "Did we create the PS3" was not listed as part of my May payment.
are previews $10 now?
Sorry for the delay guys, just got back from London! In response to the points raised:
* Dusty, I will settle up for those articles in the morning (its late here now!). Thanks for posting them!
* Exclusive (and worthwhile/good) interviews shall now be worth $10, yes.
* Game videos are just a contribution for the site as fans/staff, sorry guys! ;)
* Cera, your payment will be in the e-post tomorrow! :)
* Yes, good Editorials are payed at $5 each like news articles.
* Greg, I'll send you the extra $5 for the "Did we create the PS3" piece. Thanks for reminding me!
* Big news here: I've decided to up the value of a high quality, decent length game preview to $10. This is starting from May - so no back-pay for previous previews, however there are plenty of games left to do. Quick, short ones will only get $5. Look at Jing's FF XIII preview for a benchmark of what we're looking for.
I think thats all of them!
Could I possibly get an email address please? firstname.lastname@example.org
Quick question, are the e-mails that people might send us going to our PM box? If we have a staff e-mail address that is.
ps3 Wanna be
No you have to log into the email system.
You can set up forwarding from there, so the emails go to your main inbox.
How exactly do I log into the e-mail system?
You can log into the system here:
It doesn't seem to be working.
I type in... email@example.com for my Username
I then type gbergen for my Password
I don't know what exactly is my pasword either...
Yeah, I can't login either. :\
PM sent to both of you. :D
That did the trick Rebon, all set.
Right, the extra payments have been taken care of! Let me know if there is anything else.
Regarding those two interviews (Play Ten/Logitech), we need to get them live asap. Dusty, could you write an intro paragraph for the PlayTen one?
