Commenting effectively as a Nintendo spokesperson not as a gamer or individual. He spoke about topics outside of his influence and certainly outside of his remit or job description.

Its shit, no one is denying that but he left Nintendo with little option as it would only cause more and possibly more significant cases of loose-lips. As they say loose-lips sink ships.

More early release bugs... Its self perpetuating this mind you as Gamers want games quicker and quicker. Back in the day when Zelda OOT took 10 years to develop (almost) you wouldn't get this kind of killer bug because it was tested and retested.

Simply not the case anymore. It's not Ubi fault for pandering to US the gamer.. its OUR fault for being impatient bellends.

Playing this at the moment and whilst it is nice to walk down memory lane; I'm reminded that Halo was and still is a really poor game. Great story but any game that follows the rule "Throw enemies at them so they die over and over on hard" isn't 'great' its 'lazy'

I remain as disappointed in Halo today as I was when released, thank for reminding me though Microsoft

Sniper Elite 3 has a 10GB day one patch on Xbox One

sh0cked

5 years ago

To quote the article which quotes Rebellion.

he main part of the update is to sync data between the game's retail discs and the Xbox Live digital download edition of the game. In the several weeks between sending the code off to manufacture and release, rather than sit around or take a break, we've continued to work on the game, making improvements and optimisations.
In short this isn't an XBox or Microsoft issue, its game developers once again releasing unfinished unfinalised code as a 'finished product' we've seen enough of this with Battlefield and Call of Duty to name some high profile examples.

Why don't Nintendo have huge Day 1 patches? cause they don't release unfinished garbage.

Oh and calling someone a 'retard' yes that's incredibly mature of you and shows a genuine care for those around you with disabilities. Well done.

I'm growing bored of this M$ bashing now EG..

Really, I appreciate that Sony are quite obviously paying the bills to keep the lights on over in EG towers but come on. Could you not perhaps take a little bit of the Daily Mail out of your editorial at the moment?

I'm genuinely not asking for much, I would just like a games website that focuses on you know 'gaming' as a hobby and pastime it is rather then this whole exaggeration thing you've got going on!

Problem is, whilst it may keep you a stable 'hardcore' EG audience you'll lose the majority to other sites. Look at VE3D amongst the raft of others and learn the lessons, otherwise prepare to lose the hits, unique visitors and then the advertising cash flow.

9 down votes so far.. guess this really has turned into a Sony Fansite

Shame really, same kind of pathetic attitude in football people acting like zealots doesn't matter if its religion, football or consoles now eh.

@djronz. A dignified response, Cheers bud.. happy to discuss :)

I completely agree, I think alot of the 'kiddies' are bashing xbox because its 'cool' however it's easily argued that the content put up by EG is heavily slanted toward Sony a simple review of the recent headlines for both consoles backs that up..

The last gen issue is irrelevant, journalistic integrity doesn't and shouldn't change like the wind. It's based on fact and allows the reader to reach their own decision.

EG hasn't had that integrity lately and has been far more interested in putting out it's 'opinion' instead of fact..

Thats not to say you don't put forward some interesting points, you really do! but none of them excuse the slip of standards this site calls reporting throughout this latest generation.

Which is a shame.

It really is telling how Sony-orientated this site has become when the comments that slag Microsoft have hundreds of up votes and anyone who dare say "Im buying an xbox" gets "low scoring comment hidden" they get down voted so much.

@Tom Bramwell I'm glad to see you have come back to a more level pegging article that presents a more level footed and journalistic view. If the site can start to take this footing cross-the-board then it will re-engaged a lot of disenfranchised readers like myself who don't buy into the whole 'Console-war' shiz and are fully aware of the realities of consoles that are in-fact both powered by chip sets manufactured by the same maker... e.g. Mini-PC's
