Speaking to Develop in an interview published today, the man behind Positech Games has lambasted what he describes as a 'price war' over downloadable games.
Cliff Harris runs the one-man UK independent studio which specialises in creating downloadable releases, and believes that controversial services like Amazon's Reflexive Portal threaten the quality of games and the commercial viability of niche titles.
"There's a price war going on in downloadable games right now, started by Microsoft, continued by Steam and now Amazon," said Harris.
"It seems like a good deal for gamers in the short run, but in the long run it might not be so great. If gamers start to expect every game to be $10, then developers can only make $10 games.
