Rockstar pledges quick 'Bully' fix

Bully, the video game in which players take on the role of a student in a boarding school, made a nice splash when it was released for the PS2 in 2006.

But the latest version of the game - which was developed by Rockstar Vancouver in, well, Vancouver - has been making news because of a plethora of bugs.

Bully: Scholarship Edition essentially takes the PS2 game and ports it to the Wii and the Xbox 360, but the Xbox 360 title has been routinely crashing for many users.

In a release to media, Darlan Monterisi Rockstar Games PR spokesperson had this to say:

We are very aware of the problems some people have been experiencing with the Xbox 360 version of Bully: Scholarship Edition and have been doing everything within our powers to resolve these issues as quickly as possible. We will be releasing a title update through Xbox Live within the next week that we are confident will rectify the problem. We apologize wholeheartedly for the inconvenience that this matter has caused some owners of the game.

Other gamers have come across a statement from none other than Rockstar big boss Sam Hauser:
We have just become aware of the issues people are having with Bully Scholarship Edition on Xbox 360. It appears that some older 360s are experiencing framerate issues, freezes and other problems. You have our word that we never experienced any of this in QA - in any of our offices or at Microsoft. I am horrified, and we are now working around the clock to rectify this situation. Thanks to Neo-Gaf for bringing this matter to our attention. We love our games and put a huge amount of energy and care into making them all that they can be. We would never shove anything out the door - we never have and never will. We apologise to everyone affected for the inconvenience. Respectfully, Sam Houser

So if you've had problems with your Xbox 360 version of Bully, stand by. A fix is coming soon.
