Hobchild: Well that's another thing really, instead of backtracking on the whole thing they could've just added an offline mode that would have at least quietened the masses and they wouldn't have looked so weak.
I also have to wonder if this will affect any third party exclusives that Xbox might have arranged. I can't imagine Capcom was tickled pink to hear the news and was probably originally a factor in Dead Rising 3 being exclusive.
It's like they relented, and then had a little sulk. Feels a little like "fine we will give you your way, but we are taking something else too".
