Mass Effect 3 beta leak due to "Human Error", Bioware responds

Earlier today, a private beta of Bioware's Mass Effect 3 made its way out on Xbox Live. The beta was available for download only for gamers who signed up to beta test new Xbox 360 dashboard update last month.

Mass Effect 3 beta was leaked due to "Human Error" at Microsoft's end, and it has since been removed. But it was too late, many user who managed to sneak a peek posted screenshots, gameplay videos and other important details about Mass Effect 3 on internet.

Mass Effect 3 producer Jesse Houston has now offered a response, on leak of Mass Effect 3 beta on Xbox Live, check out below what he said:

Hello everyone!

As most of you know by now, this evening an accidental leak occurred of some early Mass Effect 3 beta code. Microsoft has advised us that through human error at their end, content which was meant for internal beta testing was flagged incorrectly and released to individuals who had signed up for the beta of the Xbox Live dashboard update. It has since been taken down and deactivated.

We’d like to stress that the leaked code is in a rough, unfinished state and was not meant for public release. The content is not final, and is not reflective of the quality of the finished, polished game due for release on March 6, 2012 (March 9 in Europe).

One feature that was present in this early build is a set of game play modes that are in development. In the beta code they are referred to as “action mode”, “story mode” and “RPG mode”. We want to stress that these features are still in the early stages of development and will receive considerable iteration and refinement. These modes are designed to give players an even finer degree of control over their game experience than ever before. Whether it be someone who finds the combat difficult but wants to experience the amazing story, someone who wants to focus on the action and combat game play, or fans who want the rich, story-driven RPG Mass Effect experience they’ve come to love – Mass Effect 3 will support all of these options. We’ll have more info in the days ahead!

That is so stupid that they have broken the game down into "modes" Just give us a game where they are all in one that's what we played and loved in the last two. Trying to cater to to many voices. "These modes are designed to give players an even finer degree of control over their game experience than ever before. Whether it be someone who finds the combat difficult but wants to experience the amazing story, someone who wants to focus on the action and combat game play, or fans who want the rich, story-driven RPG Mass Effect experience they’ve come to love – Mass Effect 3 will support all of these options." I especially like "whether it be someone who finds the combat difficult but wants to experience the amazing story". Isn't that why they have difficulty levels? Or is the beginner level to hard for some players? Please, I have beat the game on the highest level three times after finishing the story in normal mode. Come on would we be buying the game if we thought the first games were to difficult and gave up on playing it? I really hope these "modes" do not end up in the finished product
