Good to hear, hopefully more indies will tKe the multiplat route. Makes their games more accessible.
Yes multiplat is the future :)

Snap! I thought it was the 16th, so I didnt even bother to check! thanks dude! looks like I get to play this tonight!
working with xbox is a necessity, it sold 5 million consoles so far which is phenomenal
working with ps4 is a necessity, it sold 9+ million consoles so far which is phenomenal OT: It's good that xbox is getting these indies more games is better for everyone
I don't know why you are getting disagrees for stating a fact.
This is good news. Won't be long until someone enters the comments saying that MS paid them to say this or some other type of dirt.
"Guacamelee! Dev Talks Ease of Going Multiplatform, Looking Forward to Working With Xbox Again" Smart move. A 3rd party developer that only make exclusives for one console are pretty stupid. They fail to realise that only benefits the console maker, not them. The only way a 3rd party should develop a exclusive is if it's Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo that's paying for the entire development of the game.
"A 3rd party developer that only make exclusives for one console are pretty stupid. They fail to realise that only benefits the console maker, not them." Depends on the financial stability of the developer. A big thing right now is to fund smaller games (usually indies) and that gives them a bit of security (which is vital for a model that has exploded in popularity). Being a non exclusive third party is ideal but for the smaller developers this isn't feasible (especially immediately or if you have no notoriety) due to the amount of staff or small funds
Great game. I really enjoyed playing it.
It is sad that some gamers want excluisves for specific consoles. What does that help? More gamers playing a good game is always a good thing.
For any indie developer, going multiplat is ALWAYS the right thing to do. Keep building yourself up, always try to** keep your core fans happy but never be afraid to build the consumer base and try new things. The reason for the (**) is because ultimately you'll piss someone off by doing something new, but you'll also piss someone off by doing something old- that's inevitable.
