What will eventually happen is Xbox won't be getting the games,
Once PS4 tops 15 million and Xbox One is still under 10 million developers won't ever care if they miss out on Xbox One's small install base,

It doesn't really make much sense to keep it around, either.

Both consoles benefit from having a good selection of games available on them, regardless of whether they are indies or not.

MS is shooting themselves in the foot with this strategy.

Hahaha lets keep the hyperbole in check.

wow...I never knew the extend of the parity clause; seems to be harmful to the gaming industry as a whole and only beneficial for microsoft...

"For those not in the know, the Xbox One parity clause means developers can only release their titles on Xbox One if they haven't already been released on other consoles first. Despite widespread calls from the industry for it to be ditched, last we heard the company had no plans to do so."

With that logic I am surprised the 360 and PS4 got any support since the Wii beat both.

On topic,
Very stupid policy
They should reverse it immediately.
