What right do they have to do that? If my grandma sent me money through paypal, could they just say "Hold on a minute, we're going to hold onto half of this for now because we don't trust you to spend this responsibly." People gave the developers their money, it was their choice, and they knew the risk when they did it. Paypal is just a middle man, they're delivering the money to the developers electronically. What right does a delivery boy have to hold on to something you send to someone? This seems like a HUGE overstep of their power.
no it isn't the same, the money was given with the expectation of a product. Paypal is worried that they will have to refund everyones money if a product isn't delivered, so they are holding half as collateral.
I don't think it's right what paypal is doing, but I find it shameful that people are completely ignoring why it's happening. Most people's reactions to this that I've seen are just " they're not giving it to them b/c reasons!!! you should be outraged!!!"
Even the orginal post on this thread says stuff like:
I currently have both a 3ds and a vita. I bought my vita near launch, and about 3 months ago I got a 3ds.
I can confidently say that for games I heavily prefer my 3ds. The vita hardware is awesome, the screen is great for netflix. however even with ps+ I have not played a game on the vita for longer than an hour in months. Plus the vita is huge, I rarely take it out of the house because it's way to big for a pocket.
Personally I think the 3ds has more to offer as a handheld, I would go with that.
