Sony Forced Microsoft’s Hand, More Tacked on Multiplayer and DLC Coming – Cliff Bleszinski
Cliffy B sounds off on the changes to Microsoft’s policies for the Xbox One.
Free agent Cliff Bleszinski took to Twitter to share his opinion about Microsoft changing its DRM policies for the Xbox One. He has been a supporter of the Xbox One’s restrictions on used game sales since Microsoft announced the same in May.
“Sony forced Microsoft’s hand, not the internet whining. At the end of the day many hardcore dislike what was attempted. You can’t do well in that space with many of your core unhappy. Especially when users have a choice. The nature of capitalism encourages competition and Sony played into that.
He also states that we’ll be feeling the repercussions of these actions. “Brace yourselves. More tacked on multiplayer and DLC are coming. You’re also about to see available microtransactions skyrocket. HATS FOR EVERYONE. You’re going to see digital versions of your favourite games with added features and content to lure you to digital over disc based.
“I have seen the number of unique gamer tags vs actual sales numbers and it ain’t pretty. More studios WILL close and you’ll see more PC and mobile games. I want developers who worked their asses off to see money on every copy of their game that is sold instead of Gamestop. F**k me, right?”
