Funny article over at Xboxic, it looks like there is a rumor that Tomb Raider: Legend will not have an intro movie thanks to being forgotten for the final build.
When an Xbox or Xbox 360 game is finished, the developers make one final disc which is then sent off to Microsoft’s Quality Assurance team for final testing. For the Xbox version, the developers forgot to include the intro movie and didn’t find out about that until after the game had passed final certification. The QA department was more than willing to add the file ofcourse…. adding in that it would mean they’d have to restart the full validation process, and charge the usual full fee’s again for that process. Eidos took the simple and cheap way out, since it’s not expected to affect the game or its sales in any way.
I guess that’s what happens when you rush, but I find it a little sad that they took the cheap route instead of getting a perfect product out.
