So, could this all potentially be quite a legel issue now then? At first it was just funny, but the more its snowballed I'm starting to think that questions will need to be asked at some point?

Have they actually broken the law at any point, or have they just lost face?

It's a potential loss of integrity we're talking about here, not breaking the law as I understand it.

Ah, I thought as much.

And kudos to you for not point out my artistic license with the word 'legel'.

Surprised

Just read the Driv3r review in Edge..Safe to say there has been no dodgy dealings with them. They slate it left right and centre..They describe the game with just one word... Shoddy..

Out of interest anyone got the new issue of XboxWorld? Just wondering if they say anything about what has been going on? (I assume they do not)..

I don't know if this has already been posted or not....I'm unwilling to sift through 65 pages to find out....but this topic is more or less addressed in this article.

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?section_name=ret&aid=3680

Basically, Is Atari on their way out?

Can any reviews be trusted anymore?

Seen it, read it, analysed it. No link to gamesradar, which is disgraceful since they basically nicked info from us (the whole "unfinished code" paragraph).

Perhaps not. This is such an important issue. Most of us are here because we read these publications. If somebody feels they have something to say then they should say it.

All you are doing by asking this thread to end is to simply push it to the top of the pile and therefore increase the likelyhood of more people reading it and giving it more replies, which is apparently what you don't want to happen anymore.
