GamesIndustry International: ''Microsoft's Phil Harrison has stated the company's commitment to working with independent and diverse developers for Xbox One.''
Ha. That's a pretty funny headline.
LOL at the damage control and hurt fanboys. MICRSOFT Show was incredible!!! no idea how sony will match them we will wait and see. basically whole show was non stop games and exclusive bombshells
bombshells? counted 3...
I agree and it shows how Sony dominated this site is. Everyone is downplaying MS conference when they know it was great.
They showed what Ryse, Dead Rising, Project Spark, Forza (which we already saw) and D4. Oh Sunset Overdrive also but no gameplay was shown. Wow about 6 exclusives and Titanfall is coming out on PC so that doesn't count. Bombshells lol. What happened to those 15 exclusive games they were bragging about? 6 is not even close to 15.
It seems like you are doing the damage control. PopRocks359 mentioned nothing about the conference, yet you bring it up. While Microsoft conference was good, it was just what they needed to be brought back from the conference they had last month and get some people to not talk about the DRM and online connection issues. Killer Instinct is one of the games that is selling me on the XB1, Dead Rising is another, but I expect that to come to the PS4 or PC at some point.
Bombshells? Alright if you say so
LOL MIKA!!! Now that is fucking hilarious... What is Microsoft paying you off now as well?
Striaghtpath/Mika see if you still have the same opinion when you've shelved out more than £450 because you wanted the Xbox One with a game or an extra controller maybe. Somehow I don't think you'll be running to kiss Microsoft's ass then. And take it from me, I bought the PS3 on launch. I can guarantee you I will not be purchasing another console at a price point like that again.
You have games but you still have this overpiced inferior cable/rental box that has to be connected online just to play. I'm super excited./s
Sorry but that headline is complete and total damage control by the sounds of it. Microsoft's show was solid, in fact, I was surprised by the fact they kept it almost 100% core gamer orientated. Sadly, all the controversy has killed most of my enthusiasm for the console and with the possible exception of Project Spark, nothing really stood out enough to make me overlook the console's most blatant faults.
The show was cool. i cant deny that. BUT.. i still want the questions answered about their policy towards the games they have. If i cant rent games on it its a no go for me.
I'm curious what you thought was incredible? Ryse: seemed like a God of War clone. Sunset Overdrive: Sad to see Insomniac doing an exclusive for Microsoft, but they showed no gameplay Dead Rising 3: looked good Battlefield 4, Titanfall, and Witcher 3 are all mutiplat. Nothing there says pay $499 and give up consumer rights and privacy. So what say you?
...Bombshells? ...What bombshells?
Having good exclusives doesn't mean their stupid/idiotic policies are gone,you're getting too hyped I see. Good for you lol,still waiting for SONYs E3,hopefully they won't disappoint me. :D
Lets all over look the drm and always on just because MS showed games./s
"Nobody Has Been More Committed To Indies Than Microsoft" Erm... Sony?
What happened to the "15 exclusive games, 8 of which are new IPs" promise??!! Did I miss it? People said "wait for E3", and I felt nothing! There was no HUGE announcement, except for MGSV also on X1 and Insomniac making an exclusive X1 game! $500? Then another $60 to play online? That's $560!! That's a hard sell.
Bombshell? Like Plant vs Zombies? Only thing i liked was Dead Rising 3. $500 price is ridiculous considering what's inside the box and the amount they want for Live plus the fact that we'll be renting games instead of owning the damn things. Phil Harrison is a super spy.
Yeh, HARRISONS a COMEDIAN now...LOL
Well it does have some truth to it. They're the ones that really bought indies attention to consoles. That a fact. Sony or Nintendo can't say that. Obviously, they are not that committed but they are the ones that bought alot of attention to indies by promoting them in XBL and creating a free program for them to use to get their games on the 360.
...link, or die. =) Meanwhile, they're pissing off more indies than anything else at the moment. 12
look at what the indies think about the Xbone: http://www.destructoid.com/... MS doesn't even support self-publishing so they obviously don't give a crap about indies. And when an indie has to find a publisher to put their games on the console then it's not an indie game anymore you know.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... XNA released in 2004 to support indie development for all Microsoft platforms including the Xbox. "Xbox 360 games written in XNA Game Studio can be submitted to the App Hub, for which premium membership is required (about US$99/year). All games submitted to the App Hub are subjected to peer review by other creators. If the game passes review then it is listed on Xbox Live Marketplace. Creators can set a price of 80, 240 or 400 points for their game. The creator is paid 70% of the total revenue from their game sales as a baseline. Microsoft originally planned to take an additional percentage of revenue if they provided additional marketing for a game, but this policy was rescinded in March 2009, leaving the flat rate intact regardless of promotion. Microsoft also distributes a free year premium App Hub subscription for educational establishments through their DreamSpark program and MSDNAA. These accounts allow students to develop games for the Xbox 360, but developers still need a premium Xbox Live account to submit their game to the marketplace"
Hahaha! When I read the title, I literally busted out laughing!!!
I laughed when he said it on stage, after all the articles from Indies recently, for Harrison to say that was hilarious :)
Xbox One plus Live 600$ US Dollars after taxes confirmed
@PopRocks359: "Well Said" bubble for you
*Sniff* *Sniff* *Sniiiiiiifffff* Anyone else smell that?
You know, if you don't count GOG.com, Steam, Sony, etc..
Gahahaha, nice one, MS.
Even the sheep isn't fooled.
Is that why they can self publish on Live? Oh. Wait.
3 shills invading your comment and counting..
Really???? i call BS!
Really is that why your pushing or should I say hiding the indie/arcade games section in the Xbox One dashboard.
Okay Sony must have tons of indie support for him to come out and make a comment like that.
Nintendo begs to differ.
I don't think people realize how present Indies have been on WiiU. Evey week there's been a new release. They may not have sold well, but they were there and much more substantial than actual retail games
Agent Phil its time to come home your job is done.
And he didi it all without being compromised! Good work Agent.
Given pretty much every indie out there has said Sony and Nintendo are more courteous they would beg to differ. Although some have enjoyed their experience with Microsoft.
Is that why Indie devs are rushing to the PS4?
More so than Apple, Google and Sony. Would seem unlikely!
If it happens to make us lots of Money or called Minecraft that is.
I wonder what the indie devs have to say about that.
I recently read an article in the latest game informer stating Nintendo and Sony are working hard with indies to ally them to self publish. sey their own prices, and have their own game sales. Sony also claimed to not charge a single indie dev any $$$ whatsoever for the past 3 years to patch a game plus there's pub fund to help finance indie projects. Sincerely asking, what kind of things does MS do in comparison to help indie devs find success on their platform?
Says the guy with a game coming to the MS console
Absolutely pathetic show as per usual, and Harrison, stfu.
Harrison what a F-ing liar.
Well, that is a good joke.
Alas, the Indies themselves don't seem to agree.
Exactly. He can say it all he wants, but if Indies themselves are largely saying its not true, well, who do you obviously listen to? Typical, transparent PR bullshit.
LOL MS is really buying a lot of opinions then again the XBONE is a developer wet dream and a customer Nightmare.
This guy always loles me every time.
I thought indies jumped to Nintendo and Sony?
Steam has better commitment to indie games than Microsoft. Easily.
BS!!! Sony is going to smash it and bring forth the games I want to see.
Minecraft, and a trailer of a Tim Guthrie game. Notch has long since said he doesn't think Mojang is indie anymore. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Steam, Nintendo & Sony would like to have a word with you.
more like "Nobody Has Been More Committed To CRUSHING Indies Than Microsoft"
While I think the show was solid, there was still no game to make me forget about The DRM. Plus Microsoft still hasn't said anything about Xbox live membership... I suspect they didn't want anymore negative press, and we won't find out about that till launch. I predict a $12 monthly charge or a hundred dollar gold membership.
Poor Phil. No matter where he goes, failure follows...
Microsoft will just destroy Indies. Indies represent innovation and creative risk in this industry. They're the only thing keeping it alive creatively. All Microsoft would do to them is co-opt them and set them to making generic, non-risky, high-yield crap for morons.
No doubt about it. Simply look at Xbox LIVE Arcade and it speaks for itself.
come on guys phil was just making a joke. i mean he not allowed to speak on serious matters after the last fisaco
I love all the meltdowns I'm seeing.
lol sony fanboys all hurt, aww its ok your system will come out last place again, last is better than non
