    Massive (The Division devs): Won't shift focus/lead platform cos we're told to

    http://www.gamereactor.eu/news/12300...+The+Division/


    There has also been talks of Massive shifting focus from the PlayStation 4 to Xbox One after pressure from Microsoft, something that our source denies.
    "That's not correct. PlayStation 4 is the more powerful hardware and we feel it is easier to develop for. Snowdrop works better on PS4 and even if Microsoft do want us to shift lead platform that's not something that has happened."
    I love how not wanting to do 'a BF4' is a thing within the developer community.

    I am sure Massive mean it, but if Ubisoft gets gives on pressure from MS, then I don't think Massive have a say....

    It amazes me that every dev doesn't just tell MS to shove the parity clause up their ass, and then publicize their shenanigans. The best way to stand up to a bully is to kick em' in the teeth.

    "It felt like being punched in the face to be perfectly honest. At the end of the day we don't want to do a Battlefield 4 and release an unfinished game. There's too much potential in the concept that is The Division at the moment, that we've asked for more time and resources in order to fully realise this fantastic vision."

    Nice to see some developers speak honestly instead of giving the usual safe and politically correct answer.

    what is this parity clause that MS has? does it force developers to program for the xbox and make it the superior version or something? this would make sense as to why a lot of games were still **** (multiplatform games *cough*cod*cough* were inferior then the xbox versons) a few years into development of the ps3. this is my conspiracy theory side talking btw

    Parity clause says devs can only release games on xbone only if they havent already been released on other consoles.

    Maybe Sony should have a clause that means games have to release on the Sony platform 1 month a head of every other console. lol.

    I suspect to get the best looking and running game on the Xbox1 it needs to be developed on it.

    If you port a game over it won't perform as well, and we know it has struggled because of its architecture. Gantz is right about the clause.

    to add to that:

    parity clause requires games to be released for the Xbox One at the same time as the PS4 or even the Wii U.

    Plenty of devs have already spoken up about it. Surprised you need a link

    http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/2...ng_program.php

    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbo.../1100-6419373/

    So basically delay ps4 version and wait til when xb1 version is complete to release or just release only on the ps4 and call it a day

    From what I understand that clause is only for ID@Xbox games....which is their solution to indy games being released on the X1.

    Even then it's on a "case by case" basis.

    i think what happened was that it launched on both consoles digitally, but physical copies of the XBOne were delayed. If im not mistaken it was a delay in production of the discs that caused that.


    Tacos Rule!
