Ubisoft is having a bad summer

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Ubisoft just can’t catch a break. Last week, one of their games gets pulled for offensive content and this week we learn that they accidentally charged some folks some money for what was supposed to be a free download.

“The Black Pack downloadable content, including five new multiplayer maps, was briefly made available on Xbox Live Marketplace last week priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), but Ubisoft has now admitted that the content was intended to be free.”

They’re also going to make the Red Pack available for free starting on Friday. It’s nice to see them owning up to their mistakes, but at the same time a slightly unsettling that these mistakes are all happening at once.
