So Fez won't be getting a patch for its original patch. Money, less than 1% of users, blahblahblah, nothing we can do about it. Really, there's nothing we can do it about it. Why? Because there's nothing Microsoft can do about it and if the multibillion dollar company can't convince Phil Fish to get off his ass, then us gamers certainly won't. In a statement issued to Kotaku, Microsoft said:
Polytron and their investor, Trapdoor, made the decision not to work on an additional title update for Fez. Microsoft Studios chose to support this decision based on the belief that Polytron/Trapdoor were in the best position to determine what the acceptable quality level is for their game. While we do not disclose the cost of Title Updates, we did offer to work with Trapdoor to make sure that wasn't a blocking issue. We remain huge fans of Fez.
And that's that. Sucks to be a consumer these days :-/.
