I just bought Burnout: Paradise City, since I have some free time at hand. So once getting back from the store, I fired up my PS3 and wanted to try out the game. But when I started the game, I got a message I needed to update to version 1.1. I was like: “WTF…” .
Luckily, it didn’t take to long to download and install, but it had me thinking. Since the next generation consoles came out, games and firmware can be easily updated. And don’t get me wrong, it is a good thing if you ask me, but still, only one week after a game comes out, blam, an update. That’s just a bit off in my opinion. I don’t know what the update is about, but I think it will be bug solver. Good thing you can update right ;). Well yes and no. Yes, otherwise you would be stuck with a buggy game and no for the fact that thanks to the easy update facilities of the next gen consoles, games get rushed from the developers to the store shelves.
That with the chance of half finished games that still contain minor (or maybe in the future) big bugs in them. Hopefully, it won’t happen to much in the future.
