John Smedley Is A Liar

Sorry, I just can't think of any other way to put it.

"There has never been a release by Sony Online Entertainment that has been incomplete," Smedley said.
-- In 'Galaxies' Far, Far Away ...

That was his response to CBS News when they covered the whole NGE fiasco. And I say, quite frankly, bullshit. Bullshit, Mr. Smedley. SOE has released at least one incomplete game and I know because I played it. PlanetSide, when released, was neither feature complete nor was it fully beta tested. It had widespread bugs and required multiple gameplay adjustments, including major enhancements to the core aspects of how the game was played. If the game was complete when it was shipped, then why were you still developing it while I was playing?

And now, they're getting similar attacks about the NGE in Star Wars: Galaxies. Really, not a big surprise there.
