This is in response to a open letter sent to Activision Blizzard on the 22nd December 2010 to which they received no response.
The press release reads:
"The view of Gamers’ Voice is that it doesn’t matter how big a game is, it should not be released ‘unfinished’ or with bugs that make the game unplayable, which are words we have seen in a lot of emails to us recently.
Gamers’ Voice accepts that bugs do slip through the net as it’s impossible for developers to find every single bug. We do not accept however allowing entire sections of the PS3 and PC gaming community appearing to be used as game testers for an extended period after a game’s release, yet being asked to pay for the privilege. This is not a tenable way to treat consumers of video games.This will be submitted to the relevant government agencies that protect consumer rights in the UK on the week commencing 23rd Jan 2011.
Should be interesting to see what the response will be. Any of our HEXUS community members experience problems with Black Ops?
