Broken video games are the new norm, what developers need to do to fix that

Today's cutting edge of game consoles brought with them living worlds, new ways to interact with entertainment and experiences that weave seamlessly with vast social networks. They also created a new norm: Selling not a finished game, but the promise of one.

More often than not, blockbuster video games tend to ship incomplete.

Sometimes that means the game needs an update the minute you pop it into your console; sometimes it means the polish and promise of a game won't arrive for days or weeks; sometimes it means the game is completely broken until an update can be sent out.

The story is too old to be commented.
