Remember when we posted that Polytron’s decision to re-issue its broken patch for Fez? The developer’s main issue is it doesn’t want to spend thousands of dollars for re-certification from Microsoft.
In saying that, what does Microsoft of all this? Well, as it turns out, Microsoft supports Polytron’s decision.
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.
If you’re a Fez player, have you been affected by this? Polytron has claimed that less than “one percent” of the current playerbase has been affected. Do you agree?
