Activision: We'll give you $5,000 to come QA test this.

mapMonkeys: Man, we're about finding and sharing these, not getting them fixed.

Activision: $20,000

mapMonkeys: So when are we leaving again?

I think developers need to do more of this. The release of buggy games over the last 10 years has been ridiculous. And the bugs are for the most part stuff an average player would experience. It's really bizarre how or why their own internal Q&A people don't catch the bugs that are blatantly obvious to users an hour after release.

So let's let the average, everyday users do the testing.

There would be a lot of things I'd report to them if testing but I don't think I could classify any of them as bugs/glitches.

There have and will always be KS bugs. KS stands for known shippable bugs. The game industry has been using this term for a very long time. Some will get fixed after the game comes out but others liekly wont ever get fixed.

good move. Get people who actually enjoy finding these things even when they were doing it for free. I like the direction this is heading.
