Are game developers abandoning Xbox?

#11ACx7Posted 10/11/2013 7:55:37 AM
Now that Microsoft changed their views on indie development you can expect the majority of those PS4 exclusive indie games to go multiplat. Maybe not at launch. But shortly after.

It's no secret that Sony has more first party developers than Microsoft. Which means more exclusives for less money. I'm just happy Microsoft is putting some effort in to it. Another generation being carried solely by Gears and Halo wouldn't work.

About all those "release date" posts, thing is, PS4 has confirmed to have those games in the works, and support from developers and indie studios alike. Xbox is an unknown, and whether it will have many games outside of multiplatforms is an uncertainty.

The great majority of those exclusives are Indie Games with no release date other than 2014.

I'm surprised, I really thought there'd be more that had been announced for the XB1. I don't know if "abandoning" would be the right word, though. Maybe they're just a little more reluctant to dive right in just yet before the console has better established itself.

I was lately doing a sum up of games and noticed something awkward

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_One_games

Xbox One exclusive: 14
One/360/PC exclusive: 7
Timed exclusivity: 3
Total: 24
Among which: Kinect-only - 4
Other: Multiplatform - 47

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_4_games

PS4 exclusive: 31 (30 on the wiki list, but Onigiri* wasn't there yet)
PS4/PS3/PC exclusive: 58
Timed exclusivity: 1
Total: 90
Among which: F2P - 11 (*10)
Other: Multiplatform - 60


End results:
PS4 90 vs One 24



MS was saying how they pumped billions into their exclusive games, but PS4 has nearly 4 times more games in the works, and if you count out timed exclusivity, it's even worse for MS. For some strange reason, PS4 even has more multiplatforms (Wii U, etc), which even further worsens Xbox's situation.

Do you think game developers are abandoning Xbox after their horrible policies during the current gen, and in the latter half losing the the lead to PS3? Not to mention PS4 has a huge lead if you were to believe preorders, different polls and critical reception.


Indie crap will make your list bigger but not better. I never even heard of games like

Cosmic Star Heroine
Don't Starve
Hyper Light Drifter
Lily Bergamo
Mercenary Kings
Rime
Transistor



I mean what is that crap.


Really? The games I left in the quote, are games anyone going into a gaming forum should´ve at least heard of.

Cosmic Star Heroine

Your definition of exclusive and multi platform are critically flawed. If it comes to Sony and Ms consoles, then it isn't exclusive. It is multiplat

Lol, I love the community of people that are so diehard fanboy they've stuck with the Xbone through this, you guys are so "Indie games suck and don't count" that it's hilarious.

You realize that some of the best games in the last ~4 years have been indie and amazing? Minecraft was the first one I remember getting huge, but get over your "GRAPHICS" fetish and you'll find that indie games prove budgets are overrated.

My definition of exclusive, for the sake of comparing the two, were games that would not appear on the competition's platform, eg. games that would be on One, but not PS4, and vice versa. I've also distinctively categorized them into X exclusives, X1, X2, X3, PC exclusives, and multiplatforms on X and Y. The latter not being counted towards total ofcourse.

Game Devs aren't jumping ship. Most of PS4s list is indies. Heres how I do my gaming.

PS4 - SP focused games, Exclusives
X1 - MP focused games, Exclusives
Wii U - Exlusives
PS Vita - Exclusives, Remote Play
3DS - Exclusives
PC - MMOs, Indies, and emulation.
Tablet - Indies and the 2nd screen functions for PS4 and X1.
Phone - Indies

No one said every single indie is bad, but when the majority of your *next gen gaming* consist of them, I can see people not being too happy. These type of games is what make the cell phone, handhelds and PC popular gaming types, not brand new consoles.
