Bethesda's Production Director: Microsoft 'totally bungled' OSDT marketing

Halo 3: ODST is a great game. Yes, may be overpriced to some, but still, the fact remains Bungie has delivered once more. Over at Bethesda, Ashley Cheng believes the uproar could've been avoided if Microsoft hadn't "totally bungled" the game's marketing. Cheng says on his blog that, "reviewers are now mentioning that Halo 3: ODST may not be worth the price point, that it should've been cheaper, etc... give me a break."

Cheng contends Microsoft, voicing that if they'd only kept a persistent note on what the game was, and not waver back and fourth, this wouldn't have been an issue. He says, "First saying it was a standalone extension pack, then coming out and saying wait, no, we're charging full price because - surprise! we put 'more' stuff in it and it's called Halo 3: ODST now, vs the original title, Halo 3: Recon."

Wow, pretty ticked off I see. Bungie in a recent interview with Joystiq, tried their best to justify the price point, expressing that Halo 3: ODST is indeed a full, well produced game. For some, that still won't suffice. Check out the interview after the jump.
