We don’t want to sound paranoid, but it seems like people are trying to start controversy where none exists!
We recently did a short interview with Ryan Rigney (who also wrote this article on N+). In it, we mentioned that there was a limit to the amount of saved data that could be stored by a given XBLA title. We didn’t say this limit was “stupid”, because it’s not — it’s understandable.
So it makes us suspect a conspiracy — or at least someone somewhere being a complete tool — when this same interview is linked to with the overly sensational (if not completely fictitious) headline “N+ Creators Unhappy With Microsoft“.
To nip this in the bud: if you read the actual interview, you will see that while we do point out two things we ran into problems with (saved data limit and level sharing), we’re not “unhappy” with Microsoft about them — in the latter case we even expressed that this was an understandable decision on the part of the lawyers, in response to the constraints of what could and couldn’t be done to remove offensive leaderboard content!
