NPD "53% of software sales on the Xbox platform".

The industry must be so pissed at them providing the bulk of their software income.


How much of that is 360? I would say a lot


Have they spun the 360 off to another company?  I though MS still made it...

 

You dont bite the had that feeds.



I'm not really here!

Not yet, but they will if MS doesn't get it together.

They can be as pissed as they want but the install base is already too big to ignore and not support the platform.

But its too small to effectively be moneyhatted which is the real issue now. Where all companies have equal access to multiplats its a toss up between Sony and Nintendo, favoring Sony because of their lagging infrastructure. XB with only exclusives resembles the OG Xbox, then again that is my favorite MS console so far.

And Nintendo doesn't have a lot of Multiplat support.

If a developer believes that people who will buy the console without Kinect would have bought their Kinect game I have to laugh at them. If someone doesn't want to spend 100 bucks more for Kinect, he surely doesn't want to use Kinect and even if he would own it, he wouldn't touch this Kinect game.

Best were the Harmonix guys who weren't really happy. Their game was supposed to be a launch title with a very tiny userbase and now they are pissed because when their game will finally release, only maybe 5 of 6 million consoles will have Kinect?

nope. it wouldnt make much sense since it wasnt used much anyways and no reason to have to have one now or later other than for like 2 or 3 games which is nothing in the scope of things. its early enough to not matter.

There's still a lot of solid growing potential with the X1. And let's wait for this E3 if they still manage to moneyhat big 3rd party devs.

No. I'm sure the industry is glad MS is reacting and trying to get boxes in peoples homes. That's all they care about.


Hmm, how does that make any sense? It would only be...

 



Most probably.



They pissed off Dance Central and that's about it.
