Stability issues, disconnections, and unreliable timings, are acknowledged by Atari; Title Update under way...
If you're experiencing issues with Atari and SimBin's Race Pro over Xbox Live, it seems that you're not alone. The publisher has released a statement apologising for several issues reported with the game when taken onto Xbox Live, including stories of disconnections, unreliable timings, and problems with stability.
Here's the thing though: Atari and SimBin are blaming some of the problems on the account of Race Pro's popularity on Xbox Live.
Claims that Race Pro's online issues are down to the popularity of the game on Xbox Live may raise more than a few eyebrows on their own (we're pretty sure that the game won't quite be challenging the likes of Call of Duty, Halo, or GTA IV in Major Nelson's Most Popular titles on Live next week), but there's an extra detail in today's announcement that practically exonerates any suggestions that the Xbox Live servers are at fault.
Following the list of issues, both publisher and developer reveal that they're “...working hard to find solutions and will release a Title Update as quickly as possible.” Release a Title Update as a result of too many people playing the game? Surely that means that Race Pro's networking code leaves much to be desired...perhaps they weren't expecting a lot of people to take the title into the 'mysterious' world of online gaming?
It does seem that some of the issues are a result of SimBin's design of the multiplayer mode, something acknowledged by Atari. As a result, the publisher has released a guide that will enable gamers “to get the most out of the online mode until changes can be implemented in game.”
