Great, that's what i want to see this gen, new studios. We have many great studios on each platform already, but acquiring new ones is what i want to hear. There can never be too many.

It's the reason most people love the beginning of a new console cycle as well. Publishers are actually willing to chances on new IP.

GarrusVakarian901d ago (Edited 901d ago )

Yep, especially compared to later on in the gen when it's much safer to just stick with tried and true franchises rather than risk it with a new IP.

The only bad thing about so many studios/IP's is it increases the probability of money leaving your wallet XD.

Depends, I saw alot of New Ips since january 2013. On consoles, not talking about PC. New Ip's are welcome at any time.

Mystogan901d ago

New studios:

Lift London
Black Tusk
MS Victoria
Team Dakota
Playful Learning
KLE Studios
Connected Experiences

and there are plenty of old ones working on new IP.

Good Science
Twisted Pixel
Press Play
Lionhead
Rare

Microsoft Victoria is closed. Press Play is working on "several new original ips", Twisted Pixel is working on a new ip, BT we don't know as of know (maybe a surprise reveal at E3), Team Dakota is working on Project Spark, Lift London are working on FOUR new F2P ips. Lionhead is working [maybe] B&W3 and/or possibly new ip.

KevinCubes900d ago

It's a good thing competition exist to push Microsoft to take risk I'm all for it.

Only retard fanboys would down vote a good comment

Magicite901d ago

I gotta love this generation, competition is so aggressive. Let the loads of exclusives pile up!

truefan1900d ago

@Lukas look at you being neutral for once, lol. I agree though this gen it will be about exclusives and I like what I am seeing from the Phil Spencer led MSFT gaming division. These 1st party studios will be bringing a lot of new games to the table. I look forward to some great years ahead.

GarrusVakarian900d ago (Edited 900d ago )

Im all about the games, i may be a Sony fanboy but i put games before anything else. So this is good news. I wouldn't let my dislike for MS get in the way of great devs and their games.

only thing that sucks is nobody can play these games for like 2-3 years now.

Between PS4 and Xbox One, there should be plenty of high-caliber reveals for E3. I can't wait.

You guys make it sound like its an easy thing to start up a studio from scratch let alone it ends up being a good one or even a AAA power house. Publishers who make it their business to house good studios even struggle with this. Typically chance of failure is much higher than success. Considering microsofts lack of experience in this area in comparison to the rest of the industry I have my doubts.

WeAreLegion901d ago

They can certainly afford it.
