I just hope they fix the bugs BEFORE they release it....instead of patch after patch

Yeah - that's not going to happen.

Release game unfinished to meet deadline, then patch and patch and patch.

That's just how it's done these days

As long as the patches fix what is broken and not break what was working... I am all for it but, I am also with smarteyeball, it seems this is the modus vivendus now a days and I, for one, blame us equally. If people would stop and read reviews before they blatantly buy the games just cause, the publishers would make sure the game is finish and polished before they sell it.

If that's true, then I shudder to think what the released product will be like.

Rushed games are always awesome
First, I'd be leery of buying any game where it's "publically rumored" there may be contract issue with the developer. Where’s the support coming from if they don't get contracts resolved?

This is a perfect storm for a disaster if true - contract issues, a rushed game with lots of bugs, and no support or patch as key personnel are gone

It's not something I would touch, even if it were one of my favorite titles.

Unfortunately this is the business of game companies - use the public as beta testers, let them complain, then throw a patch at em (maybe).

Anyway I'm not going to go into the whole politics of things but I'll just say that if consumers had better rights with regards to software there would be less incentive to rush buggy software to the market.... But there is no easy answer for that, and none to be debated here as it would just hi-jack the thread

At any rate let's hope this whole developer contract issue is just that..... a rumor

My two cents

Well the PC version will suffer the most like every other PC game at the moment as it looks like they're gonna be releasing it at the same time as the console gets it if they have this deadline.

yeah, the problem is that PC games nowadays have such high requirements (well, by my standards ). When you buy a console like the PS3 or Xbox 360, you know that you'll be able to easily run any game released for it. When you buy a PC, unless you get one/build one with amazing specs, you would be in fear that your computer may not run it, or run it with bearable graphics settings. And of course game makers want to go where the most money is. PC games generally have much higher settings than consoles can support, which was great. Sadly, this era seems to be dying for several reasons

I have to disagree with you here, at least, that is not the case as of late... ever since consoles had the ability of going to the internet, all games decline in the sense that they are not completely finished because the publishers knew/know that they can always sell the game and then bring in a huge patch... even if it doesn't fix the game to its completion.
