Wait a second, Predator has ACHIEVEMENTS?! OMG That's awesome! Not sure how I missed that.
I wouldn't expect it at release, but maybe at some point? It seems like the ability is there. It'd be cool to have an online database where we can compare our stats/scores.
Quoted from Prkchpsndwiches:
I don't think it will have connectivity for stats. Maybe for updates? Everyone sets their games up a little bit different.
That's really easy to solve (except for physical modifications/playing with glass off). Just make it so your results are invalidated for ranking unless you are playing on default/tournament settings.
The only thing "homebrew" about it is that they are taking the time to show us the behind the scenes. It wouldn't look much different if Stern was doing the same.
Just because it is homebrew, doesn't mean it looks/plays like it. I think in the end we will be able to compare it against any of the latest Stern offerings. Actually, it already has new features compared to Stern's lineup.
