Terminator Salvation Totally Recalled

If you own the PS3 or 360 versions of Terminator Salvation, you're fine. If you own the PC version, however... well, you probably already know the thing doesn't work.

Users have been complaining about serious install errors all week, to the point where the game has had to be recalled from North American retail shelves. A notice on the game's official forum states:

Unfortunately a defect occurred during replication of the PC version of Terminator Salvation, which does not allow end users to install the game. The Xbox 360 and PS3 are not affected and function properly. We have recalled all PC copies of Terminator Salvation from retail in North America and are currently in the process of replicating new copies. The new copies will be on store shelves in a few days. A replacement plan for all end users that purchased the defective units is currently being set up. Details to get a replacement copy will be announced shortly. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused the end users that purchased the defective copy.

In the developer's defence, this sounds like a proper "defect", like you'd get with any other product, rather than the result of sloppy code (yes, Fallout 3, we're looking at you).

    Sloppy code in fallout3? What happened? Couldn't install?

      About in 1 in 10 couldn't launch the game; black screens, frezees and everlasting loading screens abound.


        Btw, your name is purple cause your registered on kotaku?

        The problems that end-users have with Fallout 3 are very often due to other software conflicting with the game. It is not the direct fault of the code. The problems can usually be fixed, but users are to stubborn or proud to realise they can fix the problem themselves.
