Would the game industry be better off if the Big Three console creators owned all the software developers? What would happen if third-party companies didn't exist?
That would suck!!!
There'd be no games on 360.
A lot of great games probably would never have existed and that would not be cool.
I don't want that to happen. Many creative and innovative games are from 3rd party devs.
We'd have no CoD.
But they do... Moving on
This would be a terrible idea. There are a LOT of first party titles that I do not like at all. The majority of my gaming is done with third party publishers/developers. This would be the demise of gaming IMO.
What If...It is starting to be a Realty just look at how many 3rd party publishers\developers have layoff and close down
there would be 0 shovel ware on wii.
It would effectively be dead. Nintendo might fare the best in such a predicament, but it be really taxing on their resources to fill a rather large void 3rd-party games would leave behind.
Gaming would move on. You would just have to play whatever first parties had on each individual system. Everyone would have to follow Sony's example and form studios and/or buy developers to make games for their systems.
