Bit of bad news for those of us who own the Xbox 360 version of Criterion Games‘ very excellent and very awesome Burnout Paradise (Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3) – it seems that the highly-anticipated Bogart software patch, only recently released, is already causing some very detrimental effects to gameplay, specifically to its framerate. And we all know that framerate is very important in a twitch-based game like Burnout, where a split-second could either mean victory or a wreck.

So, what is Criterion going to do about it? Their news post about the entire matter, verbatim:

We aim to recall the affected update from all 360s by this Friday. We’ll replace this with a revised update containing a fix for the frame rate issue.

This should be with you in around a week’s time – by 2nd May. We’ll confirm solid dates as soon as we have them. Apologies for the inconvenience…we’ll keep you posted if anything changes.

Well, a week certainly isn’t too long a time, so we’ll have to give it to Criterion Games for the prompt response. But we have to wonder how a glitch like this could have passed quality control – as we all know, prevention is certainly better than cure, and this one certainly needs a pound of the latter. In any case, updates as we get them.
