Game Developer Beatshapers on PSN Outage: ‘This Outage Makes Us Worried’
There are no doubts that PS3 owners worldwide have been affected by the PSN outage. But some of the well known developers are too. We recently had a quick chat with Alexey Menshikov, Founder and CEO of Beatshapers, known pretty well for the PSN exclusive StarDrone to ask him how this outage has affected them and what Sony are doing in order to support them.
GB: Has Beatshapers taken any financial hit due to this?
Alexey: Well, yes, this is our primary revenue source and this outage makes me worried. We will surely try to do something.
GB: How has Sony supported you during this stressful period?
Alexey: Not yet, its been five days and nothing is clear yet – to be honest we were too busy with our next PSN game to take the situation to full consideration, plus it was easter holidays.
In all other previous outages and other issues, like, for example PS3 hack – Sony was always confident and supportive, answer our questions etc. I expect an official email very soon.
GB: Is there anything you want to add on the current situation?
Alexey: This is sad that this happened but I call not to spread panic – I am sure Sony understands the situation and will put in all efforts to fix the same.
We thanks Alexey for taking out his time to answer these questions.
