Curve Digital's current lineup of games won't be coming to Xbox One, it has been revealed.

Microsoft's parity clause, which requests developers release games on Xbox One at the same time as other systems, rules out The Swapper, MouseCraft and Titan Attacks, which are coming to PlayStation platforms first."Unfortunately, all these titles here get ruled out by the parity clause," Curve's managing director Jason Perkins confirmed to Digital Spy.


Oh MS... And before anyone says "but those games look worthless anyway, no loss lol", that's true but the policy effects lots of games.

The Swapper is actually a legitimately good game. Thankfully people can experience it on literally any other platform.

hahahaha! let the ponies enjoy the heartbeat of the industry with titan attacks, mousecraft, and the swapper.

I'd like to give my thanks to the parity clause - keeping crap off the X1 since 2013

It is keeping Oddworld and other stuff off too though. The Oddworld games, regardless of Lanning being an idiot, are quality games. =/

The Swapper is a highly-rated and very good game.

Xbox doesn't need highly rated games when they have Kinect Sports Rivals babeh!

Isn't just a remake of an old game though? I want new IPs.

Better than indies. I guess ps4 is competing with the ouya now. Xbox is for gamers.
