    If that's true then it's a little more understanding. An hour is a bit excessive for a patch. I'll see when I finally hook mine up to my router (didn't have the pw at the time, controller is charging atm.) because that's all dependent on download speed.

    But even then, they don't get how certification works. They just assume that it's not the best solution.

    Yeah. Any and all changes made after certification require the game to be put through certification again. It's to make sure they're not adding any malicious code or anything inappropriate.

    But they don't need to certify patches after release?

    Yep. Patches go through it too. In fact, Microsoft charges companies 10k per patch certification. That's why some games don't get the same patches on Xbox as they do on other consoles. But yeah, patches need certification.

    The thing is, there's more to a game/console than there is to a patch. So it's quicker to certify patches than full games/consoles. Not to mention it could have been issues that were discovered after mass production of the consoles/games had started it's much easier to send a patch to get certified than to trash everything you've already made and start production again. It's a time thing. It's much better than alternatives.

    Yeah. I don't know if you remember the drama about the developer of Fez (I think?) not putting a patch out on 360 despite there being a bug that was causing games to corrupt and losing all your progress. Yeah. That was why.He didn't think he could afford the 10k to put the fix out because of cert.

    Note: I think they're both in the wrong. I'm not blaming microsoft or the developer here. Both did stupid things.

    I hate it when teachers decide their tests are fair when I got the highest score of the class with a 73%, with the next highest being a 66%. So stupid.

    Anyways, haibai, I'm off to wait for the cableman and eat.

    Never heard of that game, but that's just stupid...
    Glad I don't play on consoles, but that's mostly because controllers are just shitty to play games with, except for racing games
