The proper response here would have been to either roll the patch back or take FEZ off the XBLA. Microsoft shares some greed culpability here too, but so does the designer. He'll gladly take your money for a product he knows is broken (along with MS to be fair) and tell you "You're fucked motherfucker."

It's right along the edge of fraud really.

according to Microsoft they offered special terms to Fish re the patching as it was billed in a arcade promotion, no-one knows the details, but they released a press statement that basically said "we've tried to fix this, offered special terms - they still declined to resolve the situation".

Fish knew EXACTLY what the terms of being on XBLA are when he signed the deal, its not like it was a surprise to him - Microsoft marketed the game (xbox market place was full of adverts for it); then (allegedly) offered special terms to fix the situation and Fish still fucked over each and everyone of his customers on the platform that made him.
