IGN - What do the people making games think about Xbox One? We asked, they answered, and it's not all loving.
Their thinking wtf? If they want to get money off used games we better get sum of it too but will ppl buy it is the key word. Im confused with this approach Microsoft is taking. Hope they get it right because the ps4 & wii u & pc look like their ready to go. Thats what their thinking.
My impressions after the Reveal Event for Xbox One.
Havent seen u comment for a while lol. Good to see u back & I feel the same mate.
Do you think Activision cares? All they care about is numbers
Seems pointless when half of the thoughts are standard PR garb. Still it's nice to see a few developers show some balls and actually tell their thoughts.
Developers, not publishers. Can't really think that many are honestly positive when they're going to be made to work with Kinect 2.0 when the first version failed to prove itself.
they like getting a cut
I only read 2 talking bad. The others were pretty positive
In all fairness, that's because most of those devs already have their fingers in the pie.
Well I guess that applies for Sony too than
Kudos to Overkill studios for being the only ones of that bunch to be honest.The others sounded like a typical PR cue card read. (Looking at you UBI)
I imagine developers are thinking 'how can I get a slice of that pre-owned pie'... Developers won't be affected so much as the gamers will, because while some (sensible) gamers boycott, millions of (stupid) gamers will still rush out to buy their games. This DRM screws gamers over big time...
I think if the gaming community, at least mostly, sticks to it's principals that they've expressed over the past week or so, then it would have a pretty big effect on the companies that go through with this stuff regardless. Sure COD and it's ilk will still sell big, but when other games are going by the wayside because gamers aren't supporting them, it could cause change. If people think the gaming community is a small minority, then just look at how much back-petalling and pandering we've seen since Tuesday. These companies know we're important to sales, but we also have to realize we aren't the end all, be all to sales. Sometimes things take longer than we would hope. And unless all this stuff gets scrapped, this may be a long drawn out fight. Question is, who can hold out the longest?
They don't sound overly impressed but why should they?
Overall those statements seemed as tho they aren't to excited about it. From either straight up stating it was bad, or lacked good news for gamers to straight up throwing out their own easy advertisement ala Ubisoft with Watch Dogs. None of those jumped out and said "OMFG I can't wait to program on this piece of hardware".
"OMFG I can't wait to program on this piece of hardware". Sounds like developers reactions to the PS4. Motorola RAZR i
I like how the bungie guy, when asked about developing for Xbone, sings the praises of Sony's PS4!
lol, I noticed that too. I was wondering when he was going to start talking about the One.
How could that guy be impressed with the dog? I'm no developer but it looks lkke something that could be done on current systems. Maybe they're impressed with the AI aspect of it. Still, not that impressive.
I honestly read it as a crack on CoD, not that he was actually impressed with it.
What about that MS policy games are not allowed to look better on other consoles? Was that just a rumour, or if true, will they continue that? And will developers obey? Their publishers will.
Um. That's for general multiplatform games and ports. But yeah. I think Microsoft will continue it. <And will developers obey? Their publishers will.> Of course they will. They ain't trying to lose out on the potential revenue they could generate from Microsoft's userbase. Especially the Western developers and publishers. And since the PS4 isn't gonna be a pain in the *** to program for like the PS3 was, The (smaller) Japanese developers will have less incentive to make games for a console their own country don't care about, which happens to be anything Microsoft.
None of them really seemed that excited about the One. There was no passion. It just sounded like they were reading off of cue cards and some of them just advertised their own games. Kudos to Goldfarb for being honest about how he feels.
