A bug has surfaced that caused one users Need for Speed: Shift to crash. It happened when his Xbox 360 copy of the game attempted to connect with the PlayStation Store.
Whoops. The gamer said when his "rage had subsided" from the crashes he noticed the cause, and was "pretty shocked" at his find. He noted Microsoft are "not going to be happy".
"When navigating menus today while connected to Xbox Live the game suddenly crashed again. When my rage had subsided and I got a better look at the screen, I was pretty shocked at what I saw," the 'enraged' and now shocked gamer.
"Was my Xbox 360 version of Need for Speed Shift really trying to access the Playstation Store? Microsoft are not going to be happy about this." They also noted: "EA’s new Need for Speed Shift is the most bug-ridden piece of code I have witnessed in recent times."
Poor EA. Need for Speed: Shift was supposed to be their answer to the likes of Forza and Gran Turismo but with hiccups like this... The afflicted version was an "original PAL special edition version in the black rubber case." No word from EA or Microsoft yet.
Have you ever fell prey to an outlandish game bug before, videogamer?
