    Conspiracy theory answer: Because Microsoft has a competing product released around the same time and by delaying a patch for PC2 can maybe induce more fence-sitters (i said fence, not face) to buy their product and not PC2.

    Ancient Aliens theory answer: We are waiting for the inter-dimentional portal to open in the Mapimí Silent Zone in Mexico and our alien overlords to come back and approve the patch. I mean, why else would there be a total loss of radio signals out in the middle of a desert?

    Stability and TCR's mainly. We have a huge list of 'best required practice' we need to adhere to as dictated by the manufacturers. Things like loading times limited to x seconds max, with animation showing that the loading is actually happening. No black/blank screens for more than x milliseconds etc. Things like that.

    on the Microsoft conspiracy,if we are waiting for a patch then that means we have already bought the game.

    See now thats what i like to hear actually. As a life long lover of games, im glad there is quality control like this built in for all game developers.

    Doesnt make me any more patient though...

    Yep, there's nothing worse than staring at a blank screen for what seems like forever, wondering if it's actually doing something or has crashed.

    So I take it the game didn't receive any vigorous testing by Microsoft as I've starred at a blank screen for a while trying to join a lobby
