    This seems a lame joke.

    ...that don't recognize copyright infringements on some of the biggest gaming IPs in history when they see them.

    I always thought it would be such a cool job, disappointing to hear app reviewing is really all about dicks. Sounds like that kid from Superbad has gotten into app development :D

    That's not their job. Their job is to make sure no content offensive to certain audiences makes it through. Copyright is in the hands of the rights holders.

    You could, of course, argue that this stance makes them a lot of money, but that's a different talk altogether.

    "I promise you its a lot smaller than you imagine."

    I promise you it isn't. :) I was imagining one guy, maybe two or three, given it takes about eight days to bubble to the top of the pile but the time from "in review" to "on sale" is about five minutes.

    When XBLA kicked off, I think their entire team was Tony Harlich. :)
