I wish the bickering in here was something I couldn't have predicted... sadly I could. I'm not going to quote dozens of posters, but I will say there are a lot of immature posts on both sides of this. And the strawmen... so many strawmen...
If they have a publisher, they can still put their game on Xbox, regardless of any platforms they've already released it on. The parity clause only affects devs in the id@xbox program.
Hmm... I wonder why they still have no plans for Xbone then, "getting kits late" implies they did in fact get them. eSRAM aside the architecture is pretty similar. =( I'm not that worried about Bound specifically, btw, I'll play it on 360, it was just a AAA example that came to mind. --- http://i.imgur.com/ep3FK5Z.png
A perfect example of this is the game Transistor by Supergiant games. They are the creators of Bastion which, by the way, many bots rubbed in ps3 players faces because it was an excellent and highly rated INDIE game. I own a Ps4 with no intention of buying an x1 but how you blind bots can justify this as a good thing is beyond me. Like others have posted, once 1 critically acclaimed game passes your beloved piece of plastic up you blind ones will sure enough be starting a petition on this very website. Long post but I don't care.
I find it really funny that xbox defense comes rushing in saying that Indie games are bad. if you look at steam, you would see about 65% of all sells are Indie games. Look at FTL (one of my favorite games) and you would see a game that not only is considered innovated but also has sold extremely well. or even Mighty Number 9 which is being made by the same guy who made Mega Man. I'm even hearing that Octodad is really good and I'm planing on getting it next week. heck even Outlast is considers one of the scariest games to ever come out and its AN INDE GAME!
look I like AAA games as much as the next guy but open your eyes, Indie games are the future. even more if (holding my breath, knocking on wood) there is another video game crash, which might happen. --- "But, it was so artistically done." Thrawn's last words
