Adam Boyes needs to chill with these shots. Sony Exec Teases Microsoft over Xbox Policy
Just some friendly competition?
by Evan Campbell MARCH 13, 2014
Adam Boyes, vice president of publisher and developer relations at Sony, threw a jab at Microsoft on Twitter earlier this week while boasting about PlayStation's game policies.
"In the interest of transparency, I want to share our dev clause that lists which platforms you cannot release on," wrote Boyes, adding a picture that basically shows a blank page. The Sony executive was obviously ribbing Microsoft, which has publicly been criticized by developers of its policy of launch parity on Xbox One for a game to release on the system.
Recently, Microsoft has been trying to show that it's just as friendly to developers (especially indies), announcing last month that 65 studios have signed on with the ID@Xbox program.
As for the immediate future, Sony and Microsoft look to have big plans for GDC next week. Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios, said that people can expect some ID@Xbox games at the event, while rumors suggest Sony might unveil a VR headset.
