Xbox 720 to kill off parts of the industry, gaming needs indie developers

With the next-generation of Xbox comes the chance that gamers will start to see less and less titles than they currently are, but some people still see the next-generation as a chance for smaller developers to get their games out to the masses. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Tag Invalid)

Well at least you know for sure that Valves Steam Console will be a huge place for indie developers. Maybe Xbox 720 and PS4 will be a great place also but they haven't been the best so far especially Xbox 360 with them never getting much notice and the 40k dollar patching which Microsoft requires is just crazy.

Yeah it's too bad, I really hope they don't shut out indie games because some of those are just as fun to play as an Assassin's Creed or Halo. You could argue some are even better, despite the differing production value.

Between Sony Nintendo and now Valve, especially them, I can't see how MS will have much overall say in the industry.

They can shove their muscle around, but they've now got two generations of examples of how they can't dominate things, or influence things effectively.

They got Activision in their pocket, COD, but that's it.
