Freakbits has claimed that Need for Speed: Shift is “the most bug-ridden piece of code”, saying that the Xbox 360 version crashes sometimes when trying to access the PlayStation Store.
No, that ain’t a typo.
“The list of serious bugs being reported by customers is embarrassing and it has crashed on me at least a dozen times,” said the site.
“But this could be the most embarrassing fail of all.
“When navigating menus today while connected to Xbox Live the game suddenly crashed again. When my rage had subsided and I got a better look at the screen, I was pretty shocked at what I saw.
“Was my Xbox 360 version of Need for Speed Shift really trying to access the Playstation Store? Microsoft are not going to be happy about this.”
And the world LOL’ed.

Need for Speed: Shift developer Slightly Mad studios has said to Gamerzines that the damage model for Gran Turismo 5 is not “quite so realistic”.
The revealation came from the studio’s Andy Tudor.
“Actually, when the footage of Gran Turismo 5 came out of GamesCom with the doors flying off, we were all like ‘what the fuck? How are they able to do that?,” said Tudor.
“But then we looked closer and saw that they had fitted a roll cage to the car, which is fine, but it’s not quite so realistic.”
Shift is out on September 18 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. More through the link.
