People need to stop whining about shovelware. Nobody is forcing you to buy it,

The reality of harsh "quality control" is that it always ends up blocking good games from getting released while letting some bad games slip through.

Sony almost killed the shoot'em up genre because SCEA put some arbitrary demands on PS1/PS2 releases (no 2d games early in the systems life, required additional content for ports...), yet while this made Americans miss out on tons of great japanese arcade games, all kinds of bad stuff still got released.
