Leaving us twisting in the wind while they play politics is a lousy way to treat your customers. And it's all the whining that got so many of the Xbones stupid anti-consumer policies reversed. This is the one last 180 I need them to make before I buy in. The fact that their dragging their feet on the subject is incredibly aggravating.
How does that get you your answer here at AVSForum whining and crying about it? They are not seeing it here. Have you contacted anyone at MS? Major Nelson, Xbox Customer Support or post a thread at Xbox.com forums in the last 2 months that you brought this complaint up? Have you gotten on twitter and ask any of them about this issue?
As far as asking MS is concerned its been brought up tons of times on their Facebook and twitter pages and also Xbox forums. And we get no response. Every time it's brought up on T10 forums they lock the thread and tell us we can't discuss it there. When its brought up on Forza Facebook it's ignored. All we ask for is a answer. They are making it worse by their silence.
But because of my business background I believe I have a pretty good idea as to why we get no answer. Thrustmaster and MadCatz are official partners with MS and Fanatec isn't. I believe they won't resolve this issue until early 2014. This allows Thrustmaster and MadCatz to get thru the holiday shopping season with little competition. Then a resolution will be announced. That's why I'll wait this out. Oh, and also because the two wheels revealed so far a junk, IMO. Definitely not the quality of my Fanatec wheels.
