Yea, what ever happened to QA departments?
I remember that older games used to have maybe 1 or 2 patches, and consoles never really needed them. Now with more downloadable stuff availible, it seems that all the development companies just did away with their QA departments, and took the "It compiles! Lets ship it" mentality.
On that topic, did the optimization departments, or the theory of optimization, die away too?
