Microsoft Denies Forza 2 Causing 'Major' 360 Issues

Since 1up ran their Tale of 11 Broken 360s a week ago, there have been a few new developments. This weekend, posts appeared alleging someone at Microsoft was deleting threads on the official Forza 2 forums. The offending thread was reportedly full of gamers claiming Forza Motorsport 2 was causing major problems with Xbox 360s. Forza 2 Community Manager Che Chou responded to the accusations in his Weekly Pitpass Report.

The story is too old to be commented.

Flame bate.

M$ - deny, deny, deny.
M$ - place blame elsewhere.

Sony - lie, lie, lie.
Sony - Just wait and see whats coming soon to 'play beyond'.........

It all amounts to the same thing.
Fanboys will be fanboys on both sides.

Dude why you jumping my a$$?
There have been enough posts about this here to last a lifetime.

How many RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-RE-pos ts do you need here?

My point is everyone here:
* believes there is a problem.
* believes MS is trying to play down the problem. (makes good business since)
* believes MS is working on the problem.

There have been literally several dozens of these same posts within the last few days.

Thats why I called it flamebate.
If this were the first or second or even third or fourth post on this topic, I would have said nothing.

By the way, in case you didn't know, I only have a PS3 and I am waiting to buy a 360.

I just think this topic has run its course and its time to move on.

i have no idea what you are talking about!? my buddy has forza 2 and the same thng happened to him. if 600 other people said they had the same problem in one thread that point to a problem. atleast the developers said there was a problem and it wasnt software. soooooo..... it points to a hardware problem.

this is deffinately not fanbate. if the 360 cant handle the game THEN IT CANT HANDLE THE GAME! why would you be surprised that this happened!? redring bs has been happening all the time(3 times for me 5 times for a friend(5th is after playing forza!!!))

But denying that you have a software pipeline built up vs. whether or not there are hardware issues that the software is actually playing on ~ are two *totally* different things. I am not a MS hater. If I owned the 360 I'd be mad as hell if any of these things were happening, just like I used to get mad if my PS2's bricked, so to simply dismiss stories like these as flamebait is preposterous. Look the news is not always warm and fuzzy; believe me I know - I'm a SNE fan. Good days / Bad days

If Motorstorm was crashing PS3's I Guarantee you that it would be on the scrolling marquis in Times Square [sarcasm]. C'mon now. Nex-generation means less last-generation problems, least in theory.

Has ps3 had any failures? like overheating or anything faulty?

i remember reading that not long ago, it could be wrong.

"it's actually a very small percentage that it's happening to and we acknowledge that it's very frustrating. In other words, there isn't really a software solution here. "

I do agree for the most part but Xbox fans do not seek to destroy Sony through action. We have our opinions but do not actualy control or try to control opinion by controling news and consistantly looking for ways to make Sony look bad. Xbox fanboys:[ defend, honest opinion giver] / [Sony fanboys: Offence(attack) protect].

tethered3942d ago (Edited 3942d ago )

I disagree.

There are a quite a few (you use to be one but have backed off as of late, good job by the way) that will show up only to bash PS3 when the article has nothing to do with the 360. Once those few people start in,its an all out war between who has the biggest Wii. (MS or Sony)

I have seen it time and time again on this site. I don't think you could deny that. But go ahead and do so.

I was thinking about jumping off the marts a$$ and making a new avatar.
I was thinking something along the lines of:

Power of Blu-Ray.

lol Just kidding!

All due respect,

tomfoolery3942d ago
