Personally I think the 10 week time limit should be enforced, to keep the test bed equal, although I’m sure this could be difficult to enforce. [/quote:3ab46dd17e]
Flipside is would EA, Rockstar North etc be interested in seeing a product made in 10 weeks? [/quote:3ab46dd17e]
Then either increase the length of the competition or get used to it.
I totally see what you’re saying, but surely EA and Rockstar would want to see what the talent can do in ten weeks in fair and equal conditions. Otherwise you could have a situation where a semi-talented team produce a better game over a few months than a much more talented team do over ten weeks. Perhaps the second team were much busier or got together closer to the deadline, while the first team had feck all to do but work on their game.
