InfinityWard in Financial Difficulties
Well they must be! What other situation would a company be in to release a product to a mass market that firstly has been mis sold to earn a fast buck and that wasn’t fully tested so that it brings down millions of consumer accounts.
I’m referring to the release by InfinityWard of the long awaiting, much hyped, new map pack for Modern Warfare 2 which cost around £17 or 1200 XP points. After waiting nearly 2 hours for the new map pack to download tonight I headed onto Xbox live to get my fill of the new maps only to find that it was just a Mosh Pit map pack, you couldn’t choose the type of game to play. Not only that the kids Xbox was just crashing and exiting from Xbox Live so they couldn’t even get on.
Usually when you buy something online you can get a refund if you’re not happy with it…. where’s the returns form on Xbox Live to get your money back? Isn’t there some distance selling laws about returning a product that doesn’t meet expectations or isn’t what it says on the tin?
A really big disappointment from what has been the greatest game to come out on the xbox360 for a long time, and what a big disaster for the PR of InfinityWard who have seriously cashed in today from the many millions of people who have stayed faithful to the game and downloaded the new maps.
