Gone Home

In a recent interview, Steve Gaynor of The Fullbright Company, the developers behind Gone Home, spoke to the fact that the better terms that PS4 offers independent developers makes Sony a more attractive option than Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program. Specifically he noted that ID@XBox prohibits developers from releasing on any platform other than Xbox One before the initial release. Gaynor commented:

“If you’re talking to Sony and Microsoft, and Microsoft is like, ‘well you can’t be on Xbox if you’re on PlayStation first’, but it’s easier to be on PS4 because they have better terms, then you’ll be like, ‘okay lets just be on PlayStation’. 

“There are tons of different options and if you can wrangle it where the thing that makes sense for you is to launch simultaneously on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U and PS Vita – that sounds kind of crazy to me, but some people do it.” 
“The great thing is that in this day and age, there’s no one path that you have to take,” Gaynor continued, “which I think is a good thing for everybody.”
