Re: QUILTBAG

Re: Don't Be Evil

Some good news about this. Turns out there's a variable you can add to the URL to get standard web results instead of the AI summary.

I was going to post a couple of charts about review scores, steam refunds, territories where PSN isn't available, and dev communication indicating they might go rogue wrt the requirement, but then Sony realized they fucked up.
