Probably never been tried, but it would certainly make game developers think twice before releasing untested and non-functioning games. This is just one of many over the years. Course it could stifle the smaller game developers, but they generally release functioning games. I know a lot of developers release a quick patch soon after a game is released, as there is a time gap between released to production and when it appears on store shelves, but there is no doubt that a non-functioning game was released to production by Meier's group, and took quite awhile before the patch released, and even then, game only worked for some, most not. And here we are 6 months+ later, and still no patch for those that can't even get the game to run. Yes, a good kick in their butts might just be what is needed.
