No Man’s Sky has been one of the biggest horror stories of the year as far as videogames are concerned. What started as being a promising open world game offering a world of possibilities soon turned into a bitter experience for millions of gamers worldwide.
Not only did the game fail to live upto people’s expectations but it was also accused of not delivering on promises as far as content and features are concerned, something which managed to tick off all the wrong boxes in a gamer’s book.
It is to be noted that Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida had addressed people’s concerns about the game a few weeks ago as well admitting that many of the things Hello Games (developer of No Man’s Sky) boss Sean Murray said were wrong and criticized the game’s PR strategy.
I understand some of the criticisms especially [director] Sean Murray is getting,” he said to Eurogamer, “because he sounded like he was promising more features in the game from day one.
It wasn’t a great PR strategy, because he didn’t have a PR person helping him, and in the end he is an indie developer.
However, Yoshida has now come up in defense of both the game as well its developers Hello Games and gamers are voicing their disgust over his comments as they feel they’re grossly unjust.
He made it clear via a tweet that Sony was fully supportive of the game
If any of you have questioned, I have always been awed, amazed, inspired and energized by what @hellogames has accomplished with @NoMansSky
Twitter literally erupted after he tweeted his support for the game and many gamers didn’t hold back in voicing their adverse opinion about it.
“Im awed, amazed, inspired and energized how they duped us and ran off with the money.” replied one disgruntled player.
“They managed to sell millions of copies of a game based on false pretences, pretty amazing,” concluded another clearly unsatisfied player.
