Probably get this a lot but... (Console Vs PC Topic)

PC games have the ambition to have bugs. Console versions of AAA multiplatform are buggy too. Prepare for this even more in coming gen, where console Internet connectivity makes hot fixing the norm, allowing developers to develop just like they always have on PC. Nobody is going to consider the consumer who has no Internet to patch his game.

Edit: when you're paying for an alpha like might and magic you're helping the developers develop. They're not getting away with anything, charging you for an unfinished game that consoles wouldn't allow to be published. Your brain is the one telling you to pay for an unfinished game, not the devs.

Eagerly awaiting FFXIV's inevitable failure. Even a fantastic game cannot withstand initial bad press & the long-dead MMO format. Sad but true.

Terrible topic.

Also, zero-day patches anyone?

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

TC expects an alpha not to be buggy? LOL. Console games do not have bugs? LOL. This is false. TC doesn't know what he is talking about. Confirmed. TC is trolling. Confirmed.

Western development has always had the bad habit of being rushed, console or PC. The only difference is, a broken PC game can one day be fixed, but a broken console game is forever broken.

Nope, not a bait topic. And I have a high Karma account, but wanted a name change.

I agree that future gen consoles are going to have this problem, that's why I'm talking about it.

And if you're helping a developer with an Alpha release, why sell it for $30? Forge was $20 and wasn't labeled as an Alpha release.

And console games aren't nearly the same level of buggy.

Stay in denial. Consoles are better than PC games and it's because consumers let them publish and charge for unfinished games.


how do you expose your own crappy troll topic by the 4th post. ADD and can't play the bait game for a while?
