Already decided I'm not buying these. Might play years down the road when they inevitably end up free on some platform.

Why physical release was delayed in the first place? Like they are some indie dev without access to manufacturers and global retail.

I wonder how many executives have yelled at the Grove Street Games development team. I bet their celebration has turned into a real dumpster fire. And I think they should have culpability, but Rockstar let their quality control team tell them what was done was good enough. The Rockstar internal team has a lot of blame too. I wonder what the budget was too. Did GSG say they could do more with X and then could do what was released with Y dollars and Rockstar go with the Y dollar option.

There is a ton of internal development stuff I would love to be privy on with this game. I think GSG deserves the criticism but they have been hung out to dry by their publisher.

To maximize revenue by having 100% digital sales. No cut given to brick and mortar retailers and no secondhand sales.

Must have been tougher than we thought to fit all those bugs on a standard blu ray. Springing for BDXL would hurt the bottom line too much.

Profit as digital price doesn’t change but physical does fast. It all goes back to greed from the digital first release to 60$ to the shit show dev. What a colossal screw up.

better than Cyberjunk 2077, where the dev philosophy was, "who care about the customers, just release this POS and enjoy the money"

Most people will have to also track down a working Xbox. That's a lot of effort just for these games.

Well .. shit .. I was gonna say they should be BC on newer Xboxes but then saw this:

Saves won't transfer and Original Disc owners upgrades to 360 version.[49]

If you stick the disc in, you'll download the shitty mobile based 360 version ..not the original version.

That fucking blows.
