Rockstar horrified by technical issues with Bully: Scholarship Edition

2008-03-06 12:47:12·  2 minute read   ·  Colette Bennett

The recent port of Rockstar's private school romp Bully has earned considerable ire from 360 owners, beginning with a NeoGAF forum post and only heating up from there. Complaints include poor framerate, freezing and glitches in the audio, which caused Rockstar president and co-founder Sam Houser to speak out to frustrated consumers about the issue. Here is his statement:

"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," he wrote. "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 NeoGAF 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," he continued. "We would never shove anything out the door - we never have and never will. We apologize to everyone affected for the inconvenience."

The internet isn't much on understanding or patience, so I don't expect this will quell the bitching too much, but at least more reasonable 360 owners will be sated by the fact that Rockstar is taking action. The statement definitely insinuates that older 360s are a part of the issue, which may be true, but is obviously no excuse for a buggy port. What do you think is at fault -- the older 360 models, or the game itself?
