Anyone care to bet Pirate Bay'll have a working copy out before the publishers do?

See, you wouldn't get this issue if you were sensible and used a console :wink:

Perhaps it's a ploy...

Since when was a PC game not working a reason to recall it?

in times where some great development houses have went under like Free Radical how the hell can Grin release 3 bog standard games and still manage to stay alive.

Ah PC games. Remember installing a patch that made a patch that was supposed to correct a patch work; took longer than finishing the accursed game. Switch while you still can people!

Wish they'd done the same for Warhammer: Mark Of Chaos, my copy of that's a bugger to install. Each time I've installed it it's taken a good dozen attempts... :x

There has always been the temptation with developers of PC games to get things out the door unfinished (and I'm not speaking of ALL PC devs) due to the ability to patch later.

Unfortunately with the eve of XBL and PSN this has carried over to console games, where fixes that really should have been there from the start are being worried about post-gold.

'replicating new copies'

'the defective units'

absolutely disgraceful. this is no way to rebuild a fanbase after at least 5 terrible terminator games... take heed any budding name-wreckers
