Remember when this was supposed to be an $30 indie game? Before it got a season pass, preorder stuff and a collectors edition. I am pretty sure focusing more on improving the game, than how to get the most money out of it would have been better in the long run.

Compulsion Games are full of good ideas, they just need to marry them with a good execution, so I hope that now with MS funding and support from their other studios, they can finally make great games.

Sure hope buying Compulsion Games will be worth it for MS. :/

I think they should have waited until after they released their game to make that kind of purchase. I think the decision was rushed for E3.

I didn't even realize the game was made by compulsion until I read this article. I watched the Sterling video on WHF and it never clicked with me.

Ouch. Should have left it as an indie with the appropriate price. Again OUCH.
