    Mmmmmm, yeah.

    What a load of marketing hogwash, what is it with marketing at the moment, its all utter lies!

    Having read it again...they have redressed a phone call from Microsoft as they are the reason it all changed, are you telling me no other developer said "Oh yeah stick in another 256MB in there". MS obviously have a way of making their partners feel special!!

    Yeah, it's hard to trust what anyone says at the moment.

    So they're boasting that they can't write efficient games?
