Some of this is getting pretty out of hand.
Lionhead were a studio on decline over the last 6 years. AAA budget games that didn't release games that made that money back. Its a business. Fable Legends looked very mediocre.
Over the years Sony has been no different in closing studios down. Recently losing zipper interactive and Sony Liverpool and Psychosis. At 1 point Yoshida had to answer the media that Mid sized studios were unfortunately finding it tough, so it was goodbye.
Microsoft have some great 2nd party collaborations and 9 First party developers with some working on multiple games as Microsoft actually took a lot of developers from Ensemble Studios for example and made other existing teams bigger.
IF we see a problem with exclusives throughout the gen then we can definitely say MS is struggling. But Microsoft just announced 2 weeks ago that they have put more money into exclusive Xbox content than any history before right now.
And MS have also got more OWNED IP this generation than any previous generation they have had. So whatever happens behind closed doors. Its working for great games not playable on other consoles. And this year is no different if not better than last year.
