I reported yesterday on the threads popping up in the official Forza 2
forums claiming that Forza 2 is causing the Xbox 360 to crash. Apparently,
now Microsoft has taken steps to cover up the forum that has gained massive
attention in the past 24 hours. I am highly dissapointed in this move,
considering I am a strong supporter of keeping things public, particularly
when there could actually be a problem that consumers should be aware of.
I should have screen captured the forums, but the thought that Microsoft
might delete them entirely wasn't a thought in my mind. Hopefully
Microsoft will redeem themselves in the near future, and make some public
statements concerning the widespread claims that Forza 2 is causing Xbox
360 units to crash. Some reports even claimed that Forza 2 was causing the
Xbox to permanently crash. I'm not sure how much of this is reality, but
it needs to be addressed immediately.
In what appears to be an effort to conceal the over 900 replies gamers
provided on the official Forzamotorsport.net forums about Forza Motorsport
2 crashing on the Xbox 360, Microsoft has deleted the long thread, now
stating that it's "exclusive content for registered forum users" only.
However, the thread was removed entirely, even to registered members. This
comes after the thread was revealed and reported on yesterday, gaining
plenty of attention. In the thread, hundreds of gamers posted their stories
on what happened to the 360 when playing Forza 2, and expressed
frustration, anger, and disappointment.
