These are the kind of problems I expect from a small indie team with zero PC experience, not a large company that paid for the publishing writes in the US to lock it down on THEIR store running on top of THEIR operation system. Even if SEGA did most of the work there is no excuse for Microsoft failing to ensure the app actually works when they lock it to their store and app platform. For now PSO2 is a hard pass and considering 79% of the reviews for it on the windows store are 1 star I think I'm not alone.
All of this has me feeling really conflicted. Part of me is really loving Microsoft having their decision to make it a Windows store exclusive blow up in their face in such a spectacular fashion. The other part of me is sad it happened to a game that actually looks good and a ton of people were looking forward to or already love. I really hope they release a stand alone client and the game is able recover from this mess.
Also who ever convinced Microsoft to release Halo MCC on Steam deserves a real da-bomb, a high five, and a massive raise.
