While Early Access has many success stories, some projects inevitably fall over or never materialise, leaving gamers dissatisfied and feeling they're out of pocket.
Overnight, Valve issued an updated set of rules and guidelines to Early Access developers that are designed to better protect the interests of customers.
“Grand Theft Auto V for new-gen consoles is by far the most rigorous and sweeping cross-generational update we’ve seen – and at this point in the lifecycles of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we're unlikely to see such a move again.”
