The Great WarZ Debacle – Is This What We Get For Tolerating Sub-Par Launches?

Open-world zombie title The WarZ has been the focus of a torrent of outrage, following a launch dogged by disappointment and misleading claims. Mark Butler wonders whether the recent success of other controversial titles has led to a situation where games companies are increasingly confident in putting out flawed or problematic products. (Culture, PC, The War Z)

Nice article. I do think this is a result of consumer naivety, and sadly, I feel that it will only get worse from here on.

I wonder if it'll show back up on Steam?

Having launch day issues are one thing, releasing an incomplete title and saying its complete is quite different.

Had they been honest none of this would have happened. That they were already doing MTs and charging full price was pretty suspect.

WarZ's problems have very little to do with customer naivete and very much to do with the devs not being up-front and honest about their product.
