Fares: Some Publishers "Interfere Too Much", MS and Sony "Too Cocky"

Dealspwn: "Film-maker and Brothers game director Josef Fares is an outspoken chap. In amongst chatting about his upcoming game last week, he told Dealspwn that although Starbreeze and 505 Games have given him total control over his game, there are still publishers out there who "interfere too much" when it comes to development, even dragging down franchises in some cases."

"he's most excited for Valve's Steam Box"

why wait? he can get steam now, just put together a decent gaming PC and download the App.

I wonder what his motives were for saying this, from a business side calling your future potential business partners cocky is not very clever....

Also publishers are paying for your project, so they have every right to interfere if you are not meeting deadlines because without the publisher you wouldn't be able to make the game in the first place.

^^ motives? How about saying what he really feels?

in the working world telling your future bosses or the people who will feed you ( pay you) how you really feel is not very smart

1. Very Good read

2. I was already interested in Brothers as it looks GREAT and has some cool new gameplay

3. Yeh Sony and MS are too Cocky but that will run out very quickly.

4. Steambox will free PC Gamers from MS! (Not so cocky anymore huh MS)

5. Sony will come to their senses and offer up their Exclusives to PC Gamers or have their PS4 Emulated all to hell and lose out on software sales.

6. Valve is PRO-Gamer all the way. Greenlight and kickstarter allow Indie Devs to make great things. Plus Valve is selling a lot of Game creating Software through Steam.

7. PC Gaming is already more about Gamer created content then AAA Publishers.

many of the big name games being released started off as mods and many of the best games are just Devs giving Gamers tools and an environment and the gamers create the games.

Gaming is moving into a new direction minus the stupid publishers and I like it!!!

1. Sony will never have their games on pc
2. Emulation of the ps4 at a decent framerate probably wont happen to the end of ps4's lifespan anyways
3. Steambox is nothing new so how will it free gamers from consoles?

i was understanding that the "indie" developers were happy about the wii u and ps4,(havent heard nextbox news) i know im not in the business but it sounds like he is already burning bridges, claiming they are to cocky

theDECAY1869d ago

I just don't know who you are...

porkChop1869d ago

Well clearly he won't get much support in the future outside of 505 Games. A new generation is on the way, the last thing he should be doing right now is burning bridges. He's obviously not a forward-thinking person.

Having a hard time figuring out who this guy is. Oh well *goes to play journey*
