Promised updates...

Who is sick of promised updates for games? I bought Warfare Inc. and Dead Man's Dungeon expecting awesome updates, but they never come out. I was going to buy Light Riders for multiplayer, I'm glad I didn't. Why do they keep lying about updates, I'm glad some developers still release updates when they say.

I made the mistake of buying Urban Tycoon expecting an update too. I learned my lesson.

Having no updates for Warefare Inc. yet really hurt me. Though i'm still not disappointed in buying it.

Gameloft's 'Ferrari GT: Evolution' is supposed to have an online multiplayer update coming, the app description has been saying "Update coming soon" but for the past year or so.........

Touchsoft mobile..the maker of Urban tycoon is a Fraud
there is no update coming, he even removed that promise in the update
so for everyone who bought it for 2 bucks, like myself, got screwed out of our money and burned

the app store is full of BS products, i dont buy like i use to, and i dont believe delevopers unless they have a proven track record of actually coming through with their products and their updates

3d world

I bought 3d world which said it will add jumping and shooting. No update and all you can do is run around. How can I contact apple because they also breach copyright

I too have pretty much stopped purchasing products with the promise of an update.
I've decided I'll pay any potential increase in fee when I actually see that it's been updated.
It's one thing to buy and you're pleased with the product as is and hope/want more/updated, but if you're buying with the caveat of an update, you're bound to be screwed over on more than one occassion...
