Mega Headlines: One Fez Survivor

Fez 2

It can’t be a bad thing to have all the headlines the week after E3. People are definitely talking about the Xbox One and all of its policy reversals. Without going into detail, DRM was never my issue with the Xbox One and those policies (if this week proved anything beyond a doubt) are completely malleable. My bet is both Sony and Microsoft have DRM policies that mirror each other for digital games in 3 years time. My real issue with Microsoft right now is in its treatment of game developers, even ones like Phil Fish who won’t be bringing Fez 2 near the Xbox. I’m all for the games, and Microsoft is burning some really creative bridges, well beyond just Phil, too. However, I will say if all platforms blocked Hammerpoint Interactive until they got their collective shit together, that wouldn’t be terrible.
