Op-Ed: A minor delay is better than a broken game

'Battlefield: Hardline' has become the latest game that has been delayed to 2015. It appears that the 2014 Holiday season is going to be give gamers a limited selection but they are better waiting for a flawless game rather than playing a broken one. (Battlefield 4, Battlefield: Hardline, Dev, Duke Nukem Forever, Grand Theft Auto V, Industry)

Personally I'd rather wait an extra 6 month rather than get a broken game now. BF4 taught an important lesson to the industry and many have learned.

"EA says BF3's launch woes won't be repeated."

Google this: bf3 release problems

So the bf4 release will be fine because they learned their lesson! O.o

What is this guy going on about at all, the end of 2014 is going to be a dry season for gamers??? It's one of the most packed gaming seasons that I've seen ever....I'm glad games are getting pushed back as I just didn't have the time or money to play them all...wish authors would talk truth or at least do some research before writing dribble.

Yea Hardline just managed a swift escape.

This winter has a plethora of Big releases.

As I'm on pc so for me it is:

-Dragon Age:Inquisition
-AC:Unity
-Far Cry 4
-Advanced Warfare (activision's already having a pre bash, everyday)
-Shadow of Mordor
-Alien:Isolation
-Borderlands:Pre
-Evolve
-The Evil Within
-Project Cars
-The Crew
-Elite:Dangerous
-GTA V

Lol Hardline had no chance, if the Division and Witcher was involved well we would have the most odd record of game sales ever.

Meh, once it gets to the millions of people home. It will be the same as BF4 with broken online and crashes. I've already learned my lesson, EA. My money is on something else.

I agree that EA is not to be trusted, so I let the last remaining legions of fans buy the game first then make a decision after a week.

Completely agree with this article. I think the ones who put it best are CD Projekt Red in their Cyberpunk 2077 trailer when it shows the release date: "When it's ready." That's the difference between a gaming company headed by developers and one headed by publishers and executives: developers make sure the game is ready when they announce a release date, but are also willing to relax the deadline if it means the game coming out right. Publishers are RELEASE NAO!! and a shitty, half-finished product makes it into stores.
