Fez’s Phil Fish: “Microsoft Won’t let me Develop for Their Console. But Sony Will”

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Fez’s Phil Fish: “Microsoft Won’t let me Develop for Their Console. But Sony Will”

Yeah, he's probably one of the very few developers, that I would not really like, to be saying good things about Sony, it only makes Sony look bad :P nevermind the actual message.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Requiring a publisher in the current digital environment is ridiculous and archaic. All it does is to eat away money that should go to the developer. I have no idea why anyone would defend this, yet I've already seen people try.

I expect another reversal by Microsoft. I know they're trying very hard to please publishers but a publisher is nothing without developers. They'll have to allow self-publishing eventually and on that day I expect a lot of the same people defending their current policy to tell us how great it is that they're changing.

I don't think it's that he couldn't introduce the patch for free, but the ridiculous amount that Microsoft wants to patch games.  $40,000 for each patch.  More than likely the reason a lot of games don't get patched for the 360 but do for the PS3.  Minecraft developer made a deal with Microsoft since the game would be getting constant patches that if they wanted the game on their system, the patches would need to be free.  You can ask for a source if you want, but you won't get one as I've already tried finding it.

I don't need every single indie game ever to be on the XBOX One. Like someone said earlier, this whole idea that somehow XBLA has a shortage of great indie games is ridiculous to begin with. There are plenty of great indie games there and have been for years. I don't ever even really remember anyone talking about smaller games on PS3 until Flower/Journey (which Sony published) so Microsoft has been doing something right. This quite simply boils down to quantity vs quality.

Also, anyone who has seen Indie Game; The Movie knows this guy is insane. I literally thought the twist at the end of the movie was going to be him killing himself and Fez never actually coming out. The game is also not that great.



Indie developers have never moved consoles or mattered in the long run...why would microsoft care about all of them?

Microsoft has their indie picks, those companies will be well taken care of. Look at State of Decay. 500K sales in a week...10 million dollars.

If you don't make their cut, Microsoft doesn't care about you. Is this wrong? I don't think so...its business.

Phil Fish is an ass, and I know most people would agree with me. I barely care what he thinks on this situation.

Seriously, that documentary with him in it, he looked like a really squirrelly pathetic man with a big ego.



I don't get the hate but I also don't get the props to Sony for once again following Nintendo. Sorry but all the things people are bragging about on PS4 for indies that makes it must own, isn't new. Nintendo has the same policies in place since Wii U launched. One of the reason I bought it is because they give indie devs more control over what they release and they set their own prices and decide when they have sales.
Pokoko, yeah only MS people change their mind. That's why Sony fans made fun of Wii remotes before Move? Live before PS+ which is going to be awesome paying for online. I can tell from your posts here that you support Sony but you cant seriously be pretending that Sony fans are not known for their double standards. It completely sucks til Sony does it, then its going to save gaming, etc. It's happened too often for anyone to deny it



Lol this article only shows his loyalty to Microsoft



“Microsoft Won’t let me Develop for Their Console. But Sony Will”

...And that doesn't really change anything, people still won't be playing this game on Xbox One or PS4.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

And what exactly has the second paragraph to do with the topic at hand?
