Jonathan Blow talks to EDGE about the power of the PlayStation 4, and how sharing will change the console experience.
Did Jonathan Blow have to move the mounds of money out of the way to talk about how bad an experience it was working with Microsoft?
He didn't bring it up and he didn't complain, why should you? On the topic, I'm really curious to see what developers can do with all the power of the PS4!
@Cueil many independent developers have had the same bad experience
You and me both! Next gen is gonna be awesome, cant wait till playing games in native 1080p. Also really looking forward to what developers will do with open world games. Especially fallout and elderscrolls. And ofc GTA I remember dan houser (founder of rockstar games) said in an interview, that when the console power is there, they want to make a GTA game that includes: liberty city, vice city and san andreas in one game! simply taking a plane and fly to there. :D
Independent developer are usually low budget games.So even if they complained it wouldn't bother me.
His assessment on the next Xbox was based on rumours as opposed to first hand experience. So there is hope for the nextbox yet.
don't get your panties tangled in a wad... it was only a joke... he comes off as someone who doesn't fully grasp reality... he's got just enough hold on it to be lucid, but watching the Indie Game The Movie really gave insight on how out of touch he is with gamers in general. It's not a bad thing... it fuels his creative side, but he got upset (seriously from the comments on threads) over people just enjoying his game for the gameplay over the meaning behind it. I don't dislike the guy or his games or even the fact that he got upset. I've been looking forward to this game since it was first teased a while ago and I'll most likely pick it up on the PC. I wish him nothing but the best.
valve said the same thing about Microscam the hold developers hostage when it come to online access the were able to use steam to update and optimize portal 2 on PS3 but could not on Xbox 360 because of Microsoft has a stranglehold on Xbox Live
I'm glad someone isn't afraid to say how the experience really is behind the scenes
He's indie, so he' s not at the mercy of any corporate tyranny. He can say anything he wants.
Even most indie devs do not talk out as much as him at the risk of burning their bridges, the dude has balls for sure.
Hes certainly very frank.
What a great interview. This guy is on his p's and q's.
I like how honest he is.
Braid was an outstanding achievement. looking forward for his future games and perhaps one day a sequel to Braid and a game like it.
He and a lot of indie Devs are pissed at MS for be greedy bastards charging insane amounts just to patch their games. if The Witness does well on the PS4 you can bet there will be a flock of indie devs going to the PS4 now that Sony allows them to self publish their games which is pretty big.
Is Braid actually good? It looks like something from 1995 to me and the idea of reversing decisions is hardly novel. (Blinx the Timesweeper?) Is it just clever puzzles and that's about it? Would I be a bit disappointed after the atmosphere of Limbo and The Cave?
I bought it on Steam for $2.50 this pass weekend and I got to say the game is a mind twister. the puzzles are ingenious, you'll get stuck a few times but other than that it's a great game well worth the play through.
overhyped garbage is what Braid was. Wanna play an innovating title, play scribblenauts
