@Mlada: If your experience is that many games freeze, my condolences. In my extensive gaming experience on many different games and platforms, I have only actually been concerned with freezes in Rorona and Totori; other games have maybe happened once in the entire time I played it and never again.
If you get freezes often enough to not make you upset, then I'd have to say the industry is really setting some low expectations... I don't have a ton of other PS3 games, but I have certainly played many of them for long (8+ hr) sessions without any problems.

It might be a button pressing deal, because I have a horrible tendency to press buttons while nothing is going on...don't know why...But that would make sense...LOL

SaturnineTenshi wrote:It really is rampant within the industry, Mlada. You only hear about the worst studios, but it isn't uncommon for employees to work 60 hours a week, sometimes more at six or seven days a week, on a regular basis. That leads to many mistakes and a real blow to creativity.
And there isn't much room for argument as many contracts signed include potential overtime. If that weren't enough, most industry positions aren't very secure. Complain about the hours or refuse to work "optional" overtime days? Cool, you're reproached and/or replaced. With the boom of the last five-ten years, many video game dev positions are easily replaceable due to oversaturation (less so for programmers).

You have a problem with Kotaku? I'm asking because I really don't know much about that site any...should I be wary of their articles? Does it usually revolve around whiny fanboys/fangirls like this guy seems to be? LOL
