Are these just devs that have asked for a dev kit?
N1 didn't release any games on 360, did they? Atlus and Catherine, Level-5 must have required a fair sum of money after True Fantasy Live if they're actually making a game for X1.
I'm cautious about this. I just don't really see X1 taking off in Japan even with this support.
Pretty sure that's just the case. I mean if you think about it, development tools are kind of a necessity to properly estimate time, labor, and quality when forecasting future projects and system release potential. This really is in no way indicative of them actually developing content for the device.
Signing up to make games doesn't mean anything. Even announcing untitled games with no titles doesn't mean anything. Rockstar, Capcom and lots more devs signed on to make games for Vita, Atlus even announced SMT for Vita but nothing in development.
Basically MS goes to developer and asks "Are you interested in making games for XOne in the future?" Dev says yes Microsoft adds them as a developer for their system
Sony and Nintendo do the same thing. It doesn't even mean the developer has a devkit. As long as there is a slight chance that a developer might make a game for their system, one of the 3 will announce them as on board.
I am a Nintendo Fanboy and let me tell you, being a Drone is actually a great thing. We have beautiful people and we have ugly people. just like other fanboys
