AVP console versions no longer supported

It seems for all those people that purched Aliens vs. Predator on consoles and were hoping for a patch to make online better, adding wanted features or new maps are now screwed.Clumsyorchid, community manager for the title, has confirmed that the console patches have be cancelled.

“I’ve just received a mail this AM regarding patches for the console versions of AVP and I regret to inform everyone that these have sadly been scrapped.

I had previously made a claim that these were coming and at the time, this was very much on the table. For the console community, I apologize, as I know there are many features and updates that you’d like to see. I’ll keep fighting internally for this to happen, but until I hear otherwise, there will not be a console patch for either Xbox or PS3.”

Sadly this is not the first time that SEGA have published a game that needed patches and they just stop supporting it. This is an issue SEGA should fix, also release those needed patches faster. Where are the Alpha Protocol patches? At least PC users get future patches, lucky them.

    How bout releasing a game that doesn't need patches in the first place? I never patch. I didn't need to 10 years ago and fuck the companies if they can't release a completely functional product.

    I agree, AVP's main issues needed patching right away and could have been avoided. Though most 'online' patches and glitches are not detectable when making the game and testing it. Some player, somehow finds them after its release. Support is needed.

    It is just what happens when games become bigger to produce, more code to add and they are more prone to have issues.

    Where? Do you mean where were they hoping for a patch, like where in the game?

    True. But it is also true that companies are starting to rely on patches for skipping ahead some quality control tests. And that's no good…

    Not to mention that far less than 100% of people have their consoles connected to the web.
