Microsoft Praises Sony’s Indie Efforts

Microsoft Praises Sony’s Indie Efforts

The words ‘Microsoft, ‘praises’ and ‘Sony’ certainly don’t appear together often, but one Microsoft executive, who was once a high-ranking employee at Sony, has praised the electronics company for its efforts in the independent development community, and promised that Microsoft would be a strong player in said market too.

“I’m pretty proud of the work that we’ve done digitally over the last three to four years on Xbox 360,” Microsoft Studios corporate vice-president Phil Spencer told OXM. “Games like Castle Crashers, Limbo and Terraria right now – that game’s pretty fun. I do think it’s about quality in the end, managing our bandwidth and what we’re going to work on.”

He added:

I think Sony’s done a nice job of this. If you look over the last two years or so in that digital space. Journey was a fantastic game. I thought they did a really nice job and, you know, as a portfolio manager, it’s my job to figure out what you’re going to focus on – is it really going to matter when it comes out?

Here’s to hoping Microsoft earnestly puts its hands out to help the indie community, as such a move would only help the Xbox One.
