Alone in the Dark for 360 getting a patch: You are all excited

The console patch culture continues as Alone in the Dark becomes the next game to be finished after its initial release. We already knew that the delayed PlayStation 3 version would ship with a number of fixes, but 360 owners who were unfortunate enough to buy the game can half-heartedly rejoice now that a patch is coming their way to improve some of the game's glaring faults.

Fixes to the PS3 version include a streamlined inventory, a better camera system and improved controls, along with fixes to the end section of the game. It's not apparent whether 360 owners will get some or all of the PS3 fixes, but one would imagine they'd get the works. It's the least Eden could do. 

So, yet another developer relies on a patch to fix its game after having the gall to charge full price for an admittedly unfinished product. And the games industry has the nerve to whine about used game sales. Until developers stop relying on post-release patches to bail them out, secondhand games are highly recommended.
