Windows RT - One week in, sales of £52.

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

If anyone already read this post, it has had a very positive effect and Microsoft have graciously decided work with us to iron out the problems and get us past this incident.

With a sense of fair play, I’m putting my grumpiness on hiatus and deleting the juicy bits. Which was all of it, sorry.

Just a note, after this blog was submitted to us, Paul pulled this post from his blog, which was the original source, and he said this:

Paul might be back around to delete this post as well. In any case, go buy Great Big War Game--it's really good.

The platform's too young, I think you rushed too quickly into the platform. No offense intended.

Thanks for considering us to be a "corporate" TC. :)

Yeah you called it Kris. At the risk of looking like a sell out, MS have been in touch and smoothed out practically all our issues in one hit, so it's bad form to leave a post their moaning at them. At least it got something happening.

Haha, this isn't selling out--you guys spent thousands of dollars to bring the game to Microsoft's platform. Speaking out made a difference. Maybe some people should learn the power of speaking up, rather than resenting it.

Speaking out is one thing, whining and thinking one is entitled is quite another.
