Stace Harman examines the strengths and pitfalls of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox scheme on Xbox One and the free-wheeling but potentially lackadaisical approach Sony’s PS4 digital strategy.
Witch Beam headlines
Xbox One’s ID@Xbox scheme may seek to bring self-published indies on to Microsoft’s marketplace, but the company’s current release parity clause is punishing smaller studios. That’s the claim of Assault Android Cactus developer Witch Beam.
Assault Android Cactus will be released on Wii U eShop with off-TV play and will support Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls. The action shooter Witch Beam is slated for a Q1 2014 release, and has previously been confirmed for release on PC and PS4 and Vita with cross-buy. Via Nintendo Life. Thanks, Cybermarco.
