I don't like these style of childish jabs between corporations, but Sony at least knows how to do it well.

And this is why MS will be forced to remove any such clause regardless of justification.

You simply cannot compete with that kind of PR. Sony easily wins and everyone gets behind them.

Except the parity clause can be avoided in many ways and with all the support MS gives the ID devs it makes sense.

Sony can come back when they have the same laundry list of dev support and tools MS gives.
Also these jabs only works on the undereducated consumers, not the actual India devs who know how it works so this will have no effect.

Until MS tries to hit back with heir own smarta** remarks, Sony will win the battle with the online community crowd, which gets echoed all over the place.

You have PR for different groups of consumers, this is clearly targetted at one specific group so it doesn't really matter for those it's not aimed at. At least not to the point of trying to discredit it's value (that value being riling up the online communities, which it does. The online sharing video hit how many million views?).

Exactly. This is easy and cheap PR for Sony. The online community loves this type of stuff and Sony is feeding the beast. The online community has a huge impact on the 'discussion' of these things. Sony has been on fire hitting the right notes.

Why ?

 

Why shouldn't a platform holder be able to demand that at least they get same day release when they offer, free dev tools, free dev systems, free dev support and assistance, resources, free distribution and free dev conferences among other benefits. 

 

And for those who absolutely can't live up to the requirement there is negotiation possible.

Because platform holders should be privileged developers are choosing their networks to release on. Not throwing up red tape that potentially restricts income and the growth of the industry.

As much as I don't like the parity clause, it just causes bad PR a lack of some games. This type of PR is childish, very childish. Especially when MS congratulated Sony on launch and Sony posted the "720" tweet, which is funny due to Killzone not outputting far off 720p in MP. At least MS is honest.

Oh I did see that, which is always nice. Just sad that the execs are feeding the internet with the ###### that they are though, there's no room for it.

Developers normally pay to have the privilege to release on a platform, ID devs get it free, as well as tons of resources and support. So that argument don't really work in this situation.
