"Slacker backers" won't receive any rewards.
Anyone that donated less than 1000$ will no longer receive any rewards

shut the fuck up you clickbait shit. they only cancelled the exclusive awards from kickstarter such as the phone card DLC. Everything else is staying the same now fuck off

"4,009 people voted against offering the bonuses to PayPal contributors, 4,670 said they were okay with it and 6,432 who expressed no preference."
Isn't 4670 a bigger number then 4009? How does that work?
Also calling your backers "Slacker Backers" is a dick move.

But what can you expect from sony fans. Glad I didn't fall for it

>Developer Ys Net, headed by series creator Yu Suzuki, put the decision up to a vote. Over the New Year's holiday weekend, Kickstarter backers were given a say on whether rewards would also be granted to those who came on-board during the campaign's second wind, when it opened up the option to donate by PayPal.
>Those "slacker backers," as they were called when the PayPal option opened in September, were denied access to the exclusive rewards based on the answers of just over 15,000 respondents. 4,009 people voted against offering the bonuses to PayPal contributors, 4,670 said they were okay with it and 6,432 expressed no preference.
>Yet Ys Net interpreted that minority to be a "strong response" in favor of revoking PayPal constituents' access to the campaign incentives. The developer also acknowledged that this contradicts what was originally advertised when the renewed crowdfunding period opened.

So the minority of backers who probably wanted to scalp their bonuses anyway are in control?

Nah. The dev's don't have the funds or the want to ship out bonuses on a large scale so instead they're trying to find a way to cull the numbers without making it look like their fault.

Massive dick move and I'm definitely pirating this shit now.

Looks like a lot of people won't be getting those ryo jackets


> sony has enough money to pay for rewards several times over

> completely fucks people over

How can the devs not have the funds if $ony is publishing ?

Did you actually donate ? Serious question. Wondering if you're so enslaved that you're okay about getting scammed out of your reward
>>
>>322812358
A fucking company from France is providing more money than Sony you dipshit. Cedric Biscay himself said that Shibuya Productions are giving more to the project than Sony. Fucking get out of here with your uninformed bullshit.
>>
That's super shitty. If you don't want to fulfill the rewards don't leave the campaign open to get extra funds. If that pisses some backers off then so be it, it should have never been a poll in the first place.

Wait, so they're still getting money on top of the Kickstarter bucks?
>>
>>322812205
"It's worth noting that those who pledged on PayPal are still getting the rewards for whatever tier they paid for. It's merely the Kickstarter-exclusive rewards like getting your face put in the game, or receiving a voice message from Ryo voice-actor Corey Marshall staying in character, that aren't going to be offered to Slacker Backers."

Im currently at the Physical 60 dollar backing.

Should I go any higher?

no because fuck sony. they're not helping for shit

>>322813154
yeah. suzuki realized maybe he can make the game of his dreams and put every stretch goal in the game with the budget he has. it's very good news
>>
So this means people that already paid the 30$ for the game won't get it?

Lmao classic sony
>>
>>322813880
what the hell
>>
>>322813805
If you want a reward or the actual game you should go higher than 1000$ or else be labeled a filthy "slacker backer" and you get nothing

Unless they make another poll that decides any donation less than 10,000$ isn't good enough
>>
>>322813880
How are you getting ripped off. See >>322813371
Only the things labeled as Kickstarter exclusives are being kept as, well, Kickstarter exclusives.
>>
>>322814319
So people can at least get refunds, right? Since they were downright lied to
>>
>>322810545
Hahahah a lot of people won't get the game then.

Holy shit. This is going to backfire bad. Glad I didn't " pre-order" or else my pre order would have gotten canceled
>>
>>322814442
so physical copies are still being sent? that's fine then
>>
I'm not sure why the PCucks are even false flagging this hard. They're actually getting this game.

Oh you're delusional and a illiterate dumb nigger? Should've just said so.

That right there is the dealbreaker. If they're willing to do that shit then god knows what the game will turn out like.

You retards realize that slacker backer is a genetic term used by pretty much all Kickstarters to describe late donations? This isn't something they came up with.
>>
>>322814319
>>322814451
OP IS MAKING THIS UP DO NOT BELIEVE HIS LIES. READ THE FUCKING KICKSTARTER UPDATE #51. ANYONE WHO DONATES ON THE PAYPAL GETS THE AWARDS IT FUCKING SAYS.

The only things missing are the phone card DLC, Corey Marshall voice message, and having your name as a sign in game. Fucking stop falling for obvious BS.
>>
So now I won't get the game unless I pay for it when it's out again.

Fucking shit. $60 down the fucking drain? Because it's not good enough!?'

>posting polygon link on /v/

Yes. The Kickstarter exclusive rewards were never offered on the Paypal site. You'll still get anything that it said you were getting on the PayPal site.

"Slacker Backer" makes it sound like they think they're doing you a favor by letting you give them money, which seems backwards considering they are the ones doing the begging by crowdfunding the project
>>
Is that not illegal? I understand not being able to deliver, sometimes it just doesn't work out, but outright reneging, especially in such a discriminatory way seems like it would be at least lawsuit worthy.
I also couldn't really understand the article completely, do they merely lose a few bonusses or are they outright getting nothing for their pledges?
>>
You can literally sue them for false advertising. This is entirely illegal
