By now, the vast majority of people are stomping round the school yards looking for their next victim, in Bully the game that is. But it's not all plain sailing for most of you. Since Bully hit the shelves days ago, the internet has filled up with people complaining of frame rate issues, bugs and freezes in their copy of Bully: Scholarship Edition. Kotaku took it upon themselves to chase up head honcho Sam Houser for an official statement which went as follows...
"We have just become aware of the issues people are having with Bully Scholarship Edition on Xbox 360. It appears that some older 360s are experiencing framerate issues, freezes and other problems. You have our word that we never experienced any of this in QA - in any of our offices or at Microsoft. I am horrified, and we are now working around the clock to rectify this situation. Thanks to Neo-Gaf for bringing this matter to our attention. We love our games and put a huge amount of energy and care into making them all that they can be. We would never shove anything out the door - we never have and never will. We apologise to everyone affected for the inconvenience. Respectfully, Sam Houser"
To be honest, I never expected any less of the enigmatic Rockstar, such a refreshing attitude in this day and age of all the commercialisation of gaming that goes on around us.
Let's just hope they can fix it quick and we can get back to skipping class... Again, in Bully, that is! We'll keep you informed of any updates we receive or stumble upon.
