Microsoft has apologised after it accidentally uploaded the Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection to the Marketplace late last week.
Not content with an early launch, it also priced the game at 800 MS Points, which is half the planned cost.
“Earlier this morning, the Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection Game Add-on was briefly made available on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points,” a statement said.
“The content has since been removed and will launch on Tuesday, July 28th worldwide as planned, together with the Dark Corners Game Add-on. Pricing will remain as originally intended (1600 and 1200 Microsoft Points for All Fronts Collection and Dark Corners, respectively).
“The small, lucky group of Xbox Live members who were able to download the content during the short window it was available will be able to retain the content for the price at which it was purchased as well as keep all related Achievements. There won’t be any penalties for those who purchased this content early. Think of it as a lucky treat for those with quick reflexes!”
Now isn’t that a friendly gesture eh? We’re all for banning the lucky buggers. We’ll have a full review for you in the next few weeks.
