Publishers not such big fans of having their unreleased games devalued before they're even out it would seem.

Its not quite clear if 2K pulled it or if Epic pulled it after Randy being a twat on twitter again.


edit: Is the epic store seriously still just one page you have to scroll down looking for stuff? #-o

...and no checkout trolley

Epic will all of it multiple millions "it will do, it will do". A fucking online mum and pop shop has a shopping trolley.

Again the old lack of a checkout trolley causing problems, who'dve thunked it.

For all their millions and billions in the bank they don't half come across like a complete and utter tinpot organisation.

It's kind of getting silly how often stories are coming out about the Epic Store.

Yesterday it was reported that an individual had asked Epic to send them all the personal information they had collected on them, which they duly did. Unfortunately they also sent it to another random member of the public. Luckily that person contacted Epic to let them know and they then contacted the first individual to notify them of their mistake. It's not exactly a massive issue but it does raise further doubts about the processes Epic are using to run their store and the belief that it's all a bit slapdash, with security and users being at the bottom of the pile in terms of stuff they are focusing on.

Jesus. :lol:

Remember when certain parts of the gaming press mocked people as conspiracy theorists for raising security concerns?

As much as I like the kick to Epic this is Microsoft that every few years comes out and says buzzwords about supporting the PC market.
