Microsoft Won't Take Blame for Lack of Fez Fix

Microsoft has denied responsibility for a game-breaking glitch that the developers of puzzle game Fez said they couldn't afford to fix.


Earlier this week, Fez developer Polytron said they wouldn't fix a rare game-breaking bug because Microsoft asked for too much money to re-certify the game.


In response to Kotaku's request for comment, Microsoft sent over this statement:

Polytron and their investor, Trapdoor, made the decision not to work on an additional title update for Fez. Microsoft Studios chose to support this decision based on the belief that Polytron/Trapdoor were in the best position to determine what the acceptable quality level is for their game. While we do not disclose the cost of Title Updates, we did offer to work with Trapdoor to make sure that wasn't a blocking issue. We remain huge fans of Fez.

Less than 1% of users have been affected by the game-breaking error, according to Polytron.

I wonder when Microsoft will realize what they really are missing out on because of their greed. They missed out on TF2 and then... well I spent about 80 dollars on the Steam Summer Sale. 4x as much as I've spent on my XBox in the past year.
