First party titles involve the console manufacturer's ip and are developed by studios owned by the console manufacturer.
polyphony digital, guerilla games, bungie, zipper, ensemble, lionhead; these are examples of first party developers.
insomniac, ready at dawn, retro studios are examples of second party developers. the developer is its own independent entity. but in terms of the projects that they work on, they assume first party priviledges as far as funding, licensing and publishing from the console manufacturer. the console then gets exclusivity rights to the game they develop.
rare [before they were bought out by microsoft] is a good example of a second party developer. before the buy-out, rare worked on several nintendo-owned properties for example DK country. those projects were funded/ published by nintendo. rare also created several of their own properties as well. for example the conker, or perfect dark franchises.
Since being bought by microsoft, and made into a first party developer. they no longer have access to the nintendo owned licenses. therefore they are unable to create further DK country games. nintendo owns that license and can task another developer with continuing the series.
the perfect dark and conker franchises are rare-owned IPs. therefore rare can continue the development of those franchises on microsoft platforms now. [perfect dark zero].
gears of war is an epic owned IP, but the first gears of war game was partially funded by microsoft. epic entered into a second party relationship with microsoft for the creation of that one game. epic cant just take the finished gears product to any other console now. it is quite possible for epic to decline a second party relationship with microsoft and bring a sequel to multiple platforms however.
