This gen might be a good thing.. because maybe it'll tell MS they aren't the end all be all of gaming and they may change. lol Last gen PS3 was screwed because of MS's money and bs "release at the same time" clause. :/ ---
It wasn't entirely money.
A lot of their bargaining power came from the fact that their install base dwarfed the ps3 for much of the early gen. This let them create policies like this one and forced most devs to abide by them if they wanted to sell to that base.
It will be interesting to see how many devs jump ship until it is changed since they no longer have that install base to bargain with.
I'm not the nicest person you'll meet. Have a real point please.
