Phils latest comments about single player games lacking impact (on sales) erked me.
He seems to believe in "games as a service", and everything being a competitive online multiplayer game, with micro transactions & DLC, is the right way to go (for them as developers).
I think that just means he ends up competeing against the 3rd party big IP's out there, that specialise in makeing online multiplayers. Which is a loseing battle, and worse it means your console might end up lacking big single player game titles.
this "multiplayer only" focus will hurt them down the line.
He wants to do away with single player games so either he or Xbox may not last much longer. This kind of thinking killed Phantom Dust and Scalebound. meanwhile the highest rated games this year and best selling are single player games. He needs to rethink his stance.
Yep. His PR and putting foot in mouth moments, the flip flopping ect... the worse is his comment about that Single player stuff.
