It's almost as if Microsoft doesn't wan to succeed

First of all, I own a 360/One/PS3 and will be getting a PS4 around march, so don't take this as trolling. But I just don't understand how microsoft goes about it's business with this:

Way to drive away potentially awesome games on your console, MS.

The only games MS will lose will be indie trash. I`m fine with that.

It'd seem more plausible that they didn't want to succeed if they weren't actually, you know, selling lots of systems right now.

It's also hardly the first time anyone has demanded that a game launches on their system at the same time as the competitors. It hasn't killed any console maker yet.

Yeah but could that start effecting big industry games and such.

You can't really call his comment stupid without inherently calling his personal tastes stupid. In which case...

Indie trash? Wow, way to generalise, idiot.

I think it's a bad move both ethically and business wise. The PS4 has made A LOT of people "jump ship" for various reasons (my personal opinion is that the consoles price is the main reason). It just seems like another bullet in the foot.

"While a reprieve could have been found if Witch Beam had exclusivity deals in place before the ID@Xbox programme was announced, as Microsoft will work with studios on a case by case basis to consider waiving its rules in those instances, unfortunately this doesn't help the Assault Android Cactus team."

I think it's smart that they demand launch date parity. Otherwise every single indie game would be timed exclusive for Sony because of the pub fund.
