Rockstar Aware of 360 Bully Issues

Many users are reporting freezing and framerate issues with the recently released Bully: Scholarship Edition for the Xbox 360. Responding swiftly to the outcry, Rockstar Games has said this:

“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”


It seems a little odd that an issue that is (apparently) this widespread made it past QA sessions, but props to Rockstar for acknowledging the situation so quickly. Stay tuned for our review of Scholarship Edition within the coming days.
