Its sad how the industry is all about the finances.I miss the old ways of companies,when you send out a game MAKE SURE IT WORKS!Im tired of devs using patches as a way to send theyre unfinished game out fast.However if its needed by all means please :).Off topic I wish there was a patch for Dragon Age Origins its frame rate on the PS3 is ehhh,but still an amazing game.
