I'm glad they're fixing it for their customers, but if they delay 'Star Wars Battlefront (2015)' [Working Title] as a result of fucking up, let's face it, an assembly line sequel game in the preposterously over-explored 'Modern Military Dudes Shoot Vaguely Islamic or Pseudo-Russian Fictional Enemy Faction Dudes' series...I will not be held responsible for my actions. I've already been waiting way too damn long for a new Battlefront on a system which doesn't suck shit through a straw for playing shooters on.

I don't get it, what exactly is everyone so bummed out about? What were you expecting?
This rumour is toying with my emotions so hard...I want it to be true so bad my natural skepticism is being dulled. I replayed the trilogy this summer, and those games are still amazingly good. And I mean...Technically Activision owning the IP isn't an insurmountable obstacle, Universal owned it the first time around anyway...Got to stop letting my hopes get up...Expect nothing, Jens, that way you won't be disappointed.
@seikenfreak: We have been told by Rev3 that it is not about the access issues. Sessler posted a video about earlier today, and Rev3 says it was taped on Friday, before all this.
Nevertheless, to be clear, I meant if it was actuality important, Klepek would have said it was important (and by that I mean important to the audience), not that he would have told us what it is out of turn. He says it's not something we need to worry too much about, I take him at his word. Klepek's by far the best actual journalist I've come across in the gaming press.
And, to be quite honest, I still doubt it's anything to do with tiers of the press. If so, why would Gies care? That desolate money pit Polygon thing he "works" for could easily muscle its way in somehow.
Klepek says it's a non-issue. That's pretty much all I needed. If it was important, Scoops would have told us.
@pillclinton: Heheh. I guess we Brits are a little trigger-happy with the use of 'tosh'
Two things. First, what possible justification is there for the one on the left not being a joystick? The right side...I can see the argument for a touchpad there. But directional input on a touchpad is going to suck ass through a straw, I don't care how 'haptic' it is. Second, I'd like to address this idea that you can't tell if a controller is good or not just by eyeballing it. Within a certain tolerance, you absolutely can. Once you know the shapes that are comfortable and uncomfortable in your hands, you can recognise fairly well from a picture whether a controller will of will not sit well in the hands. Like the Ouya controller or the Nvidia Shield. You could tell from photos the handles were bad. And they are. The handles on the Steam Controller look better, but still not great. And as for the button placements? No. Just no.
@pillclinton: That is ideological tosh. Open versus closed is irrelevant in the marketplace. Walt Disney said it best: Qualify will Out. The cream rises to the top.
This is going nowhere. Normal consumers won't know or care about it, and generally do not install OSes. Hardcore gamers either prefer real consoles, or have tonnes of legacy PC titles this software requires a second computer to run. Why would they build 2 PCs when they could build one much more powerful Windows PC? Now a dedicated Steambox, if they announce one, possibly has more legs as a PC-console hybrid which serves as a living room accessory to a PC (sort of like the Vita TV acting as a bedroom accessory to a PS4). But this OS on its own merits? Worthless.
