This editorial discusses why complacency in regards to day 1 patches and the push to go 'digital-only' is harmful for video game preservation, and sets a dangerous precedent for the future of quality control.
It'll get worse, and i doubt it will get any better. People can't hold themselves from pe-ordering or buying games on the day they comes out.
I think the trend is going to more polishing before release. In my opinion, that is why a lot of games get delayed lately. We had this habit of early and broken releases now for a long while. I assume their statistics will show by now that they lost a lot of trust and therefor loosing more and more money from people, who got burned. I am often holding back my purchases, waiting for a better product and a better price. That's also what alot of fellow gamers, I know personally, do. Only games I buy without hesitation and for full price are Nintendo games. Allways quality. On the short run you may make more profit with a early, but broken release and lot of patching. But in the long run (5-10 years) you loose trust and money. (Looking at you EA.) You earn customer loyality only with quality imo. I got very hesitant with my hype for certain games over the years.
I've played the last 2 days and it's jut a lagfest
I have it for both ps4 and xbox one. I found the ps4 multiplayer being more smoother than x1 for me reason
