Is it time to improve console updating methods yet?

Please keep in mind that I am a volunteer moderator and this is my understanding of the process from what I was told over a year ago when I initially asked about it. This may have changed or been streamlined since then.

The console versions are ported from the PC version by a third party and tested by a third party as well as being reviewed by the Funcom staff. Once all of this has been completed, the console updates are sent to Microsoft and Sony for certification. If the update fails certification, the team has to fix the issues and go through the entire process again. This can result in delays for the console versions. Normally, there are no delays and the console versions follow the PC release anywhere from immediately to a week or so.
