While what everyone says here has some validity... It would be 'nice' if there are changes made to in game items that were purchased with SC or Certs that the percentage change from initial release is clawed back to the end user. However, this would be largely to complex to implement in my view. As an alternative, getting some gratuity back in the form of double/triple SC/Cert promotions is satisfactory. That is of course if the end user makes use of these promotions. If they can't for one reason or another then it does lend more weight to the original posters 'gripe' I guess although at the end of the day it's quite within Sony's purview to change whatever they like. In saying that there should be a point when hot-patches, fix's etc. taper off and one could arguably claim the game is at a 'stable' functional & operational status. At this point it might be nice to have some genuine goodwill returned to the end user based on their level of patronage. Just a few thoughts... for my first ever post in these forums. Cheers, Sy.
