Sometimes big companies do stupid things. This seems to be the general rule of thumb when it comes to most companies, but as MMO-players they seem to do so almost daily. When that happens, who better to stick it to the man than the Three MMOsketeers?
The people at Sony Online Entertainment sure aren’t strangers to controversy and today they announced yet again that they had done something that the players actually didn’t want; in this case, joining forces with German ProSiebenSat.1 to serve European players. The deal has already been made for eight of SOE’s games and effectively cuts off American players from European players, some of which have already formed social bonds across borders. Good luck playing Planetside 2 with your international buddies come launch!
This made the Three MMOsketeers so upset they had to record a podcast about the whole thing, which is available through all the usual CSICON podcast channels.
