I'm glad I bought the GoW ultimate edition XBO. I don't even know how games go gold with these kinds of problems. Does no one test them?

Click-bait title that bashes a game an hour after it is silent released. Pretty despicable to post this article, that by the way, reads like it was written by a 3rd grader, for the sole purpose of clicks.

You are doing the opposite of what a site like yours is made to do. Don't drive people away because there are no drivers for those cards one hour after release. Give these people some time. Also, work on your grammar and writing skills, because this article made me never want to come back to this site for news.

Top skills. I thought you were paraphrasing me for a minute there.

Your comments have been noted and I will admit that my writing does need a lot of improvement.

I have updated the article adding my current experiences from the game, which are terrible to say the least, with the game refusing to download for both myself and the majority of users who left reviews on the Microsoft store.

After a 30 minute support call and several online chats with Microsoft technicians regarding this issue all i can say is that the Microsoft Storefront had fallen over at the first hurdle, with the first store exclusive and DX12 game being unavailable to download, nevermind play.

Microsoft are aware of the issue and say that they have a team working on the download issue, but it really shows a lack of preparation on Microsoft's part.

Was it a mistake then? Maybe the game was accidentally (I don't know how you can do that, but still) and that's why it's such a POS.

Twitter is a buzz about no multi gpu support, no overlay, no mods. Many people are screaming don't buy it
