Fez Left Broken, Highlighting How XBLA Shoots Itself in the Foot


Long-awaited Xbox Live Arcade title Fez received a patch last month fixing a long list of issues. However, despite this patch taking more than two months after the game's initial release to show up, it proved to introduce a serious issue of its own: it could corrupt players' save game files. The update was pulled from Xbox Live and we've been awaiting a fixed version, only we now know one is not coming. Developer Polytron has announced its decision to re-release the patch as-is due to the cost involved in issuing a new one. This is yet another illustration of how Microsoft has hamstrung Xbox Live Arcade and ensured that, without changes, it will never fulfill its potential.

Developers should ship quality, well tested software the first time.

XBLA should not be blamed for a lack of quality from a developer. If they would've tested their game fully the first time, it wouldn't be an issue.

Stop relying on gamers to buy and test software... Gamers should buy and enjoy...
