To be fair, at that point because the OP didnt put any content in his oringal post, expect a link, all I had read at that point was just the Title of the thread, and it was a reactionary message.
The details that its only future content, after these things come out, and only with the expection of other consoles ect.
You see how messy that messageing from MS is?
If what you say changes on a weekly basis, and you need to read the fineprint, and Thread titles are misleading, and possbily article names too....
Yeah its bad communication.
Good messageing is short, precise, doesnt require reading fine print, and doesnt sway left and right, week by week.
Yeah but when someone posts about an interview and includes a link... shouldn't you read the interview before making a crazy reaction?
There is no messy messaging, just people who make the messaging messy with spins and opinions. Microsoft bought some studios. Some of them have games already coming with prior release arrangements. Microsoft will honor those. Past that, they have no plans to support other consoles. See how easy that is?
Your explaination is better than the one Phil or whoever this quote is from, is.
You should do PR for Microsoft, your take is much better.
Still.... all this coulda been avoided I feel like, its unnessary to even say this much. Theres probably ways around running into such issues.
(like saying things everyone expects = pointless to say so)
My question is..... if Ludicrous is able to give a short, sweet, precise answear, that leaves no room for confusion.
Why the hell cant the guys at Xbox do the same?
Why do they give messy answears like this:
"The past year has been an exciting time for us as we have more than doubled the internal creative teams making up Xbox Game Studios. As these new studios transitioned in, we were aware of some existing commitments to other platforms and will honor them. However, going forward these new studios will focus on making games for our platforms. We have no plans to further expand our exclusive first party games to other consoles. We continue to believe deeply in cross play and progression of games with the right flexibility for developers to insure a fair and fun experience."
Why is it that long?
why does it mention cross play?
and allowing the "right flexibility" of devleopers (of what happends) to insure fair and fun experiances?
Why dont they focus their messaging, so they avoid these issues with headlines?
Instead of it seeming like week after week, they say and mean differnt things.
its a PR issue.
