Microsoft "ramping down" games development - St John

WildTangent boss Alex St John, speaking to GI, has claimed that Microsoft is backing down from first-party development as part of a "recovery phase" and a bid to make its games business profitable.

"You will clearly see Sony and Microsoft ramping down their investment in those platforms... What's interesting to note is that Microsoft [Game] Studios: the number of titles they're producing is in decline. So they're investing a lot less in the Xbox, and Sony is doing the same, because they're in a cost recovery phase," he said.

St John's comments come in the wake of the shock closure of Ensemble Studios overnight.
