The two own a lot of patents and software so they already have a working relationship.

Minecraft being multiplat shows there are benefits of supporting a competitor. Q Bert may be Sony testing the water.

Minecraft is that sort of weird exception while it does belong to MS, it originally didn't, and since it was already on Sony consoles there wasn't really much they can do. Since you're already in that deep, may as well go all the way, haha.

Qbert kind of falls into the same grey area, since it was on many platforms before, so Qbert doesn't seem like a stranger to the idea of going to other platforms. Other than that, I don't really see that situation happening that much.

Well I think the primary reason Minecraft is staying multiplat is the profits on other platforms are amazing and its not the kind of game that can move a significant amount of hardware in my opinion. If Minecraft isnt on a platform then a dozen clones appear as well.

I cant think of any reason why Sony wants Q Bert on Xbox. It just seems like a test to me.

"Telltale began negotiations with Mojang in early 2013, and began work on the title shortly thereafter.[4] Stauffer noted that Microsoft's acquisition of Mojang was not a factor in the game's development, as their interaction with Mojang began well before Microsoft's negotiations. 

At least as far as Minecraft: Story Mode is concerned, Microsoft had no say in what console it may appear on, as the deal was already made with Telltale Games before MS acquired Mojang.
The PS4 version of the original Minecraft came out on PS4 two months before MS
acquired Mojang, so it may have been a similar situation there.

Not sure about Q-bert's situation though. Maybe there's some explanation to be found if you dig deeper. But if not, it's just Q-bert. Don't think they would mind.





Around the Network

It all started with the Sega Dreamcasts Qbert.  An argument could be made for Steam's Qbert, no the IOS Qbert, no the android Qbert.... The developer of Qbert obviously maintained some legal rights with their title. Sony didn't start releasing games on the Dreamcast because Qbert was there.

 

 

Don't forget Spider Man the movie game on Xbox. Also lisenced by Columbia pictures. Notice a trend?



The thing I still find more weird was when the jeopardy and wheel if fortune games were only on Nintendo systems a few years back when Sony owns both shows

It's not wierd. Sony Pictures lisenced the game out. Sony Movie studio functions outside of Sony's Gaming studio. Sony Pictures Television was previously known as Columbia TriStar Television.

See a trend? Qbert was never a Sony game, it just was a (Columbia) property that they lisenced. The two might as well be different companies when it comes to lisencing.



What is Q bert lol



Around the Network

It's nothing new. It's probably been mentioned by now, but Minecraft's dev is owned by Microsoft now, and they've said they still sell on PlayStation platforms.

I wouldn't be shocked if a potential sequel hits PS platforms, albeit at least a year or 2 afterwards.

But honestly, when I read this, I was thinking Planetside 2.

That's cool, what's next sony maybe bloodborne ?

I think a more likely big budget game is MLB The Show. It doesent sell particularly well, doesent seem to move much hardware, and virtually only appeals to US gamers.

It would be a terrible idea to give MS even more ground in the US, since it being the 2nd biggest exclusive in the US for the PS4 last year.

With MS and Sony exclusives included and without bundles, MLB was the 3rd biggest exclusive. Behind only Halo and Bloodborne.

Sony must feel sorry for M$, because of how poorly the Xbone is selling. This should help them out a bit. We are humbled.... 😌

I would expect different parts of a company to work together. At worst to maybe have the game be multiplatform, but I'd never expect a company to have such terrible synergy where one part is working against another part.
