Microsoft had a hang of this in the mid 2000s. Idk how they managed to lose that indie edge to Sony later on.

That is hilarious. 1 billion. A little short there skippy.

Oh and 100 million 360...short again.

Awesome, keep up the good work.

[email protected] is a really cool program for indie developers. Cant wait to play games like Ashen and The Last Night.
