Polar Panic is a puzzle game available on the Xbox Live Arcade, but comes with a $800 price tag? It seems that Microsoft made a mistake on the pricing of the game, it should in fact be 800 Microsoft Points.
A typo...sure, let's go with that. ;o @microtron - Go away.
It's still 2009, this game will come out of no where and become GoTY after all the award shows already gave it out and they will all look stupid... /s. Seriously Micro, go into the open zone or my ignore list... OR BOTH! lol right back you.
Just when on the Marketplace to see it for myself. The option to buy the game got taken down. It just has "All Downloads" and "Rate", now.
Polar Paaanic... It must be a BEAST ;)
That better be the CE
LOL - complete with an art book and special code to download a new costume I hope
That's pretty funny. For a payed service, it sure makes a lot of mistakes. Lmao
Don't be a moron, people make mistakes. Paid services are not living entities so whether it's a paid service has nothing to do with someone making a mistake. I guess the next time you make a mistake at work (if you have a job) you should be fired immediately. edit: This is also clearly a good reason to use micro transactions, as if they was credit card payable, this mistake could have easily wound up on someone's credit card.
well.... to be quite honest you dont hear of mistakes like this ending up on psn..... remember when we could get the bad company 2 xmb theme for our xbox? lol
Don't make an ass out of yourself when you can't even spell the word PAID. Just pointing out we can all make mistakes. That being said, I never see such ridiculousness on PSN. Ever.
Even if a mistake like that was made on PSN, who actually would give a damn enough to report it as news anyway. I really don't even know why this was approved. But, whatever I guess.
please learn how to spell properly first
lol quite comical.
Microsoft overcharges for everything and they know the retarded xbots will buy it regardless because it's their mommy's money.
You people are sad.
What the hell you mean, "you people"?!
"What the hell you mean, "you people"?!" HAHAHAHAHA
I think he's refering to us... A.K.A. Droids.
Probably one or two? Your teeth are ugly get them cleaned you stupid droids !!!!
4point7BillionLoss - Well... You have a smelly armpit!
You ridiculous fanboys.
You are a bot. You must die.
mainly this one 1.3 - Huh?!! http://www.filmofilia.com/w... LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLL
the season to be jolly?
Yes. Quite humorous./ s This is like the fourth article I've ever read which just points out mistakes from online services. Remember the amazon mistake and the other LIVE mistake? Come on. Is this really new? Or should I say, is this really worth of being approved?
I wonder who was dumb enough to buy this!
Man that would suck.
You just know there must be like 2~4 people who bought this
You get what you pay for if you're extremely rich and have no concern for your money!
if i was extremely rich right now i wouldnt even pay 800 dollars for a single game so your comment somewhat fails buddy
Nah that's just you, you aren't every one in the world is rich and would pay 800 for a game just to say they can do it.
But rich or poor I would never buy a game called polar panic.
Pathetic attempt. Isn't it great People can come and get quality news about typo's used as a tool for console zealot agendas. "You get what you pay for if you're extremely rich and have no concern for your money!" WTF?
do you just find the littlest faults with anything concerning MS and just whale on them this info I am about to tell won't save you yahoo from falling off but guess what it was a ****ing Mistake Unlike Sony MS is smarting off to know charging $800 for any product is a bad move
Let it out Pootang, have a good cry :)
This must be really hurting for you to comment on it.
i like how typos somehow become news worthy.
:S THIS JUST IN...ms forgets to capitalize the first letter in a sentence and doesn't even end it in a period im sure that this post will be featured on front page as well lol (technically it kinda will on, "recently commented on" ahaha)
I remember you could buy every Halo 3 DLC like a month before it came out (Forgot the price of it, but remember it was over $1,000).
To recoup their losses from RROD
lol lol alman this is so funny
I knew Microsoft overpriced their accessoires but this takes the cake. Im kidding it happens might just be the best game we ever played though if it doesnt support natal well then i think its overpriced.
The Xbox 360 causes global warming.
roll over on the floor make it stop I cant stop laughing,I dont think its a mistake I say its the real price with everything else on expensive 3fixme.
Game of the decade.
Is this news? Really? No wait...REALLY? Every person with a tiny bit of braincells could figure out this is just a typo :|
no, now that the economy is starting to recover. That is obviously what they are pretending games will end up costing so that they essentially cost the same as they do now :P Actually wait a second. I am a programmer and have worked on various systems. How is it physically possible to make that error, surely the price would be a predefined integer field and expected to be in units of microsoft points; what kind of retarded microsoft programming means it is possible to throw a dollar sign infront of it.
hoped this would stick...oh well xD
THIS ISN'T NEWS DAMN IT
How did this ever get approved?
lol open zone has funny comments, i never use it though
Ok its a mistake, but it's a huge one, $800, what if a person misread it and bought it? They will be damn pissed off.
I don't know whats funnier this mistake or the games on demand when they uploaded the PS3 instructions for Battlefield Bad Company by accident
Seems funny that just because microsoft made a small pricing mistake all the droids go mental, go get a good console kids.
That must be the greatest game of all time. Let's not jump MS' sh!t for this when there are some many other things to give them crap about.
The Badcompany XMB fault was not microsofts but EA's... It was them who sent the wrong description..
That's Microsoft for you.
Stupid enough to buy a game for 800 dollars? Even if you had the money?
Microsoft was trying to sell the game for $800??! How preposterous!!! >:l Bad!! Microsoft! Bad!!
and the penny pinching continues
you dnt play it! for $800 it plays you!!!!
OH MY GOD THIS IS SUCH EXCITING NEWS! YAY FOR HUMAN ERROR!
Every time MS makes a simple mistake, I do not think it warrants a news post.
