    New computer games come out like this with a policy behind them.Its simply to disturb illegal copies as the crack groups have way more work to yet crack those updates one after another.

    "How can OnePlus keep doing this to their costumes?" Wait a sec... So now they got their "costumes" waiting for an update alongside their customers? That's crazy!

    No, if they don't change the protection method, updating a crack is quite a trivial task. It's really bad timing, ETAs and more. Gigantic zero day updates do not have any other use than bad timing and deadlines.

    Or things get removed and you even have to pay for features, that were previously there. And still, yes, it's not final, but there was never a promise, that final non-testing version will be there in Q1, just the fact, that Marshmallow would be ready in Q1. And it is.

    Bioware, SWTOR is an external beta. And you could pay the servers when it was officially beta

    Here's how it works. If Oppo/OnePlus says a deadline for something is X days away,
    add between 30-60 MORE days for it to actually happen ;)

    No major mobile company makes concrete public announcements or offers public beta testing on the other hand. You are comparing apples and oranges in this case.

    I don't know but whoever wrote that article seems to relatively new to android or new in the town.

    Here's why;
    -Why there's Nexus 6 with CM12.1 and that too CyanogenMod and not Cyanogen!
    -Want to know about the new features Android 6.0 is providing ? Don’t worry we got you covered. Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) has A New App Menu, New Clock Widget, Memory Manager from Google, App Permission, Doze Battery Saving Feature, USB type c/ 3.1 Support.
    -Hack neither OPO nor Nexus 6 comes with Type C!

    Bottom line COS 13 is around the corner!

    What's the problem, it's a generic picture and additionally a general description, of what new features or abilities MM has. The author doesn't imply, that everything is effective on the OPO.

    Oh yes, Arkham Knight was ported so bad to the PC, that they stopped selling it for some time and offered refund to every buyer.

    You are indeed correct, the gamw was basically unplayable and completely not optimised for PC it just looked like they hoped xbox code would run on a pc.

    This waiting time trying to become a habit, so we don't necessary need to complain about MM.
