Default Fail: Xbox 360 Need for Speed Shift crashes...into PlayStation Store

Pretty funny bug, who said cross-console gameplay wasn't possible?

Quote:
We've seen our fair share of bugs and crashes, but this one has to be a huge wake-up call for the developers. Insert Electronic Arts. Their latest NFS game, Need for Speed Shift, reportedly induces a crash that Microsoft would want to wipe from the face of the Earth. Why? The Xbox 360 version of the game crashes and takes you to a PlayStation Store screen.

While checking out menus while connected to Xbox Live, FreakBits blogger, enigmax, experienced a sudden crash. "When my rage had subsided and I got a better look at the screen, I was pretty shocked at what I saw," he wrote. And what he saw is this:

"EAs new Need for Speed Shift is the most bug-ridden piece of code I have witnessed in recent times," he wrote. "But when the Xbox 360 version seemed to want to access the Playstation Store today, things had clearly gone too far." enigmax had at least a dozen crashes on the game at least a dozen times before this one, hence the frustration.

Judging by "Multi-line dialog text," it seems like the code wasn't finished, and I'm partial to thinking that the code was actually written for the PS3 first, then came the incomplete transition to XBL - that's my theory at least. What the PlayStation Store is doing on an Xbox 360 is a story I'd like to hear, and I'm sure you would too.

Until or if the parties responsible actually comment on this fiasco, we might get a bigger picture of what happened. Hopefully, we won't get the usual "We currently don't have plans of accessing the PlayStation Store" reply. Stay tuned.

You really have to wonder how that actually managed to slip past QA.

I think someone got either fired or demoted after that came out.

What would be even funnier is if it didn't crash. Suddenly getting getting cross platform online play accidentally. I bet we'd get REALLY awkward responses from Sony and MS...
