Xbox One Gamers Want Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Ported to Microsoft’s Console

by on August 25, 2014 12:22 PM 124

When Microsoft launched the Xbox Feedback page, they opened the floodgates to a whole lot of ideas from the community. There are some rather silly entries like “please clone Phil Spencer” and “more exclusive Xbox One games” (duh), but there also are some quite interesting ones.

Recently a proposal asking for a port of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been picking up steam, making the first page of the “hot” suggestions for the gaming & achievements category and gaining 442 votes, which is a rather substantial amount considering that Final Fantasy XIV belongs to a rather niche genre on consoles and the vast majority of proposals never get even close to 100 votes.

Apparently the only big barrier to the porting of the game to Microsoft’s new console is the policy against cross-platform gameplay, and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida told us at Gamescom that he’d be ready to make an Xbox One version right away should Microsoft give the green light, but he doesn’t expect it to happen too soon. Yet, he asked fans to support the demand for the game with Microsoft.

Will Microsoft relent now that a sizable number of users are letting themselves be heard on their feedback page? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure: for any MMORPG more platforms are always a good thing.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is currently available on PC (including Steam), PS3 and PS4.

    As author said, the only problem is microsoft policy, so box gamers should plead not to make FFXIV but to change that policy instead. It will open more choices in future. But really i don’t care, since i’m a “sonyboy” xD

  • Aquadysseus

    Make it happen! We need more people actively playing FFXIV! I think the moment Microsoft lifts this stupid policy online gaming will be so much more enjoyable. Especially for console MMOs, currently both the PS4 and Xbox One won’t be getting a lot of MMOs because of this policy. I’ve seen a lot of articles when developers bring up the reason behind not bringing MMOs to console is because of Microsoft not lifting this policy. Lifting it would only benefit both Sony fans and Microsoft fans.

    • Natan Cifuentes

      Sony has changed recently. Counter Strike players for PS3 can face players on PC and Apple.

      • Aquadysseus

        Sony has been for Console vs PC for a long time now. Counter Strike: Global Offensive was going to be PS3 vs PC until the developers decided to cancel the feature. Sony hasn’t had a problem with this for a while now, the only one holding it back is Microsoft.

        • Craig Sloan

          Yeah how would a game like Day Z or TES Online work on consoles if not connected with PC and or another console? You would be very alone me thinks.

          • Natan Cifuentes

            that doesn’t have to be the case, just look at Diablo 3.

          • Aquadysseus

            But Diablo 3 isn’t an MMO.

      • Alter

        PSO2, It’s been 2 years Vita and PC cross-play :D

    • Michael Norris

      The thing with MMO’s is you need a KB and mouse to play most of em.I know TERA would port over quite well,because the game has full controller support.A game like WoW or Guild War 2 needs a KB and mouse,so i only see a few MMO’s coming out on Ps4.

      • Orichalon Hades

        hmm you know, i could see GW2 having a console port. I mean, we can only have 9 skill at any given time. so if the skill system can be mapped like X = Skill 1, and L1/LB + X = Skill 5 and so on it can be done.

        (need to add a target/de-target enemy button too)

        • Aquadysseus

          It’s definitely possible to have any MMO on a console. For example in FFXIV:ARR if you utilise all of the additional hotbar settings you can have access to 32 skills with a controller with all of them being easily accessible.

      • Aquadysseus

        Not if the develpers make a good UI. I was a Tank and a Healer in FFXIV using a controller and I never wiped unless the odds are survival were pretty much 0 regardless of how well I did. The developers who say that an MMO can’t be played properly on a controller are just lazy. It’s definitely possible and FFXIV has proved this. hell the top PvP player on Cerberus uses a DS4.

  • Swagbito uchiha

    I know you can do it microsoft!!!!

    stop being “the bad guy” and let people play this game..

  • Natan Cifuentes

    Do warframe PS4 players get to play with PC players? cause that game also come to the Xbox. I don’t see this happening at all, but then again Microsoft needs all the help it can get.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      nope PS4 and PC servers are not linked for Warframe.

      • Natan Cifuentes

        That explains why it came to Xbox then. lol

      • Aquadysseus

        Really? That’s news to me. I swear that I saw PC users talking the other day in global chat when I was in my ship rearranging my gear. Someone asked for people to join his PC clan.

        • Orichalon Hades

          nah, it didn’t share server. They even have different version atm. PC is at 14.2.x and PS4 is at 14.1.x ( couldn’t remember exact version number but they are different)

          • Aquadysseus

            I’m mostly always a support based player in every game I play focusing more on healing and shielding rather than outright DPS but I do have a few damage oriented Warframes. I haven’t unlocked a few of these but I will be working toward them at some point because I like the looks of them. I’m going to have to cheat and list 5 instead of 3:P

            1) Oberon – Damage and Support. Can’t go wrong.
            2) Nekros – Bigger focus on damage but has a support based ability.
            3) Trinity – Left side! Even Side! Many heals! Handle it!
            4) Hydroid – Water manipulation, all out assault.
            5) Zephyr – The mobility on this Warframe is incredible.

            Honourable mention – Vauban. I love all of his abilities but I just never have time to actually use him to his fullest unless I’m doing Survival or fighting a boss. Mobs die too quickly to set up properly.

          • Orichalon Hades

            oh man Vauban is amazing in defense, especially against infested

  • JoeDaniel

    I predict Phil Spencer will eventually allow this!

    • bigevilworldwide

      It’s really not Microsoft’s call….They were asked, and when they refused to allow Xbox users to play with PS4 and PC users Square told them thank you and good day….I actually thought that was common knowledge, I know square has flat out stated they did not put it on the Xbox because MS wanted them to have their own special snowflake servers where PS and PC players didn’t fraternize with their precious Xbox fans

      • Aquadysseus

        I don’t think Square should go out of there way to cater to Microsoft’s stupid policies. That wouldn’t be fair at all. Square shouldn’t be getting blamed for not wanting to make an individual server for Xbox One owners. Microsoft needs to just remove it already.

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        Actually it’s fully Microsoft’s call, as the game director said Square is ready to do it as soon as Microsoft gives the ok for the cross platform servers.

        • HalfBlackCanuck

          @Aquadysseus:disqus @bigevilworldwide:disqus obviously not backed by fact BUT I imagine it wouldn’t be a drastically different answer were it available on PC and Xbox first.
          I believe Sony has had more PC/Playstation cross play type games, but I would think it would be awkward for either console maker to be the also-ran getting tacked on.
          Again, speculation. Of course MS stance would be the online experience variable for sure.

          • Jeff Maxwell

            well PC and Xbox would never happen cus they don’t allow it that’s the whole point.

          • Michael Norris

            Well it did happen with FFXI,i just think MS is crazy with this policy.

      • JoeDaniel

        Yeah, well that is Microsoft’s call then, I’m sure Phil will change it… I mean, it’s not really about who’s right and wrong, but it is still Microsoft’s issue that’s causing them to get the game. I don’t think it would be a good business move for them to have a server of only Xbox One players, so the server would be limited only to people who want to pay for the game on top of Xbox Live. Square didn’t do that for FFXI so it’s not like they’re changing their mind about the way they operate. It’s much better and more fun having everyone together.

    • Aquadysseus

      The only person who I can see doing anything about it is Phil Spencer, fingers crossed he listens to all of the fans asking for this.

      • JoeDaniel

        He does seem to care!

      • JoeDaniel

        Yeah definitely, I think so too

  • Sheldon Prescott

    Didn’t Sony cut ties with Square? If so, I could definitely see this happening.

    • Orichalon Hades

      ? it didn’t matter if sony has a bad relation with SE, MS policy of no Cross-platform gameplay killed any chance FF XIV to show up to X1.

      Untill now that is.

    • Aquadysseus

      No Sony just sold all of the shares in Square Enix that they held. Besides the game is still on PS4 and PC. The only thing stopping PS4, PC and Xbox One owners playing this game together is Microsoft’s current policy.

      • Spoonyrogdrumps

        Do you think that Microsoft’s servers though won’t allow them share the same space as the PC, PS3 and PS4 space. Or, that Microsoft just might not want Xbox gamers playing the game with Playstation owners regardless.

        • Aquadysseus

          I’m not sure honestly, I think it’s a bit of both. Microsoft doesn’t want it happening and so isn’t removing the policy. In this instance all gamers regardless of console choice should really stand together because it will only benefit the entire gaming community.

          • Spoonyrogdrumps

            I agree.

  • black070

    Another ridiculous MS policy thats eventual reversal will get praised to death.

    • Johnnie

      I honestly hate Microsoft for various reasons however, if Phil Spencer does change that policy then he deserves praise since clearly those who can’t before him wanted no part and it would honestly be pretty cool to see Xbox, Playstation and PC gamers all on one server. Would definitely make the PvP interesting.

      • Jeremy Filth

        Would be cool to have games like battlefield & call of duty cross platform compatible.

    • Alter

      Just buy a PS4 and call it a day. LOL

  • someguy

    If the day comes when all platforms can compete against each I will meet you PC and M$ in the streets.(not in fps though, can’t compete with click aiming).

  • Vious

    a thousand is the pass mark to at least be on the radar. anything below is considered not enough votes.
    also, nelva don’t make 442 votes seems more than it really is.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Actually it already received moderator attention, so it’s definitely “on the radar,” let alone the fact that Square Enix has been actively in talks with Microsoft about it.

      Considering how many votes the *vast* majority of proposals get, 442 are a lot.

      So yea, I’ll “make them seem” exactly what they are.

      • Vious

        then I guess the over 2700 votes to bring Shenmue to xbox one is out of this world even though it’s a niche game.
        - also, no it is not on the radar as mods are always reducing duplicate posts. they’re always merging requests that are alike.
        -
        in that gaming and achievements category, sure the majority of votes are less than 450, but that’s a given since it’s an open platform for voting for whatever. and naming a popular game will automatically get at least that much votes…..I mean, that number might be a lot to you, but it’s really not that significant when put against other gaming request….it actually pales in comparison to almost every other game request.
        Shenmue 2700
        gears collection 7932
        reboot banjo-kazooie 5400
        1 vs 100 (an extremely niche game that was released on the 360) has over 3900 votes
        …you get the idea.

        • Giuseppe Nelva

          So?

          Shenmue is a legend, and the others are big Xbox franchises. That’s a very different thing compared to a MMO (and a Pay to Play one), which is a niche genre on consoles.

          It’s a fact that it has a lot more votes than the largest percentage of other proposals, so you simply don’t have a point.

          • Vious

            1 vs 100 is a big xbox frachise?
            you can’t put it against every other post, you have to compare to other game request. just the same you can’t compare open world game to a “closed world”.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            1 vs 100 was extremely popular when it was up. So yes, it’s a big Xbox franchise.

            Here’s the deal. We’ll write what we feel is relevant, and this is. So I suggest you don’t come here telling us what we should or shouldn’t write.

          • Vious

            for you to just say FF is just a niche mmo is sort of weird for you to say. that franchise has been going since the 1980s
            it’s a multi billion dollar franchise.
            it’s also funny for you to say 1 vs 100 was extremely popular but then turn around and call ff which is a HUGE franchise just a niche as if it’s popularity isn’t on colossal stage.
            1vs100 is even more a niche game….I mean how many “game show” games are out there when compared to mmos?
            -
            also, i’m not trying to tell you what to write. it’s your article you can write whatever you want which you do anyway. I am simply critiquing the article at hand. is it that you can’t take criticism? anyway, that’s against the point.
            don’t be upset because I don’t agree with your view, just the same i’m not upset that you don’t agree with me that 550 votes is just not that vast or significant number.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            “also, nelva don’t make 442 votes seems more than it really is.”

            That’s telling someone what he should or shouldn’t write. Not only it’s rude, but it’s also fairly silly. And there’s a lot of difference with “criticism.”

            “for you to just say FF is just a niche mmo is sort of weird for you to say. that franchise has been going since the 1980sit’s a multi billion dollar franchise.”

            Must be why all the other proposals related to Final Fantasy games are under 150 votes, and most of them have under 100.

            The FFXIV proposal is the most popular between Final Fantasy games by far.

            Call me when you realize that you don’t have a point.

          • Vious

            ok, I see that you want to rest of the “don’t tell me what to write” bit while ignoring the rest. seems you feel a bit offended over that.
            I guess i’ll stop here.
            next time i’ll just make generalized statements. that should foot the bill.

          • Rob Nevico

            To point out the obvious (and I’m not exactly choosing sides here), an Xbox forum vote for anything related to Final Fantasy is going to be low. The reason for this is that aside from the 360 port of FFXI and the FFXIII series, Microsoft has never been the home for a Final Fantasy title. It began on the NES, moved to the SNES and then became a PS1 franchise. After that, all main entries to the series stayed on the Playstation consoles while offshoots went back to Nintendo and remakes/re-releases went to both Sony and Nintendo systems. Microsoft fans are not likely to be fans of the series as (since many of them are of the mentality that it’s Xbox or GTFO) they have had very limited exposure to the series on Microsoft consoles, and the ones they did get were an already aging MMORPG that was already fading when it finally was released, and a trilogy of FF titles that are just a horrible representation of what the series actually was before the original teams responsible for them left SE for greener pastures. I’m sure this situation will eventually be reversed, but I don’t think this is the game that will do it. It’s a great game, for sure, but the numbers just don’t mean squat when compared to other tallies. I’m in the same boat, in a sense, that I see interest in a Mac port, but I won’t hold my breath. The point is that these companies will do whatever is in their best interest, financially. I get that Yoshida is all about the fans, but I don’t think his bosses will green light an XB1 version just because some 500 out of a few million gamers think it’s a good idea, whether Microsoft lifts the cross-platform restriction or not.
            And Giuseppe, gaming website or CNN; arguing with one of your readers over something you reported comes with the territory, but so does stating facts, not opinions. We get that you love this game and all, but you can’t start a forum war with a reader just because he doesn’t agree with your opinion and call yourself a journalist at the same time if what you are reporting is based fully or partially on personal opinion. Case in point, FFXIV is an MMORPG and that market isn’t exactly huge on home consoles, but it is still a role playing game and that’s not a niche genre on any system. The online element of it may be, but that would be like saying any console game that allows one to play with others across the globe through online play are niche titles.

          • Sucka Free

            Jesus, learn to read and comprehend. He didn’t say that FF was niche, he said FFXIV, being an MMO, is niche to the console market

          • Vious

            I hear that. but first it was: “Considering how much votes the *vast* majority of proposals get, 442 are a lot”
            then it moved to: basically that number is considered a lot because mmos are niche on consoles….even though a game that’s even way more niche on consoles has almost 8x that number.
            - (goal post movements)
            -
            my point was that 450 is not that much. simply. and the way the article made it sound was that it’s an astronomical amount.

          • Vious

            and I guess 1 vs 100 is such a huge genre on consoles
            i’m sure the game show genre is up there with those huge FPS franchises.
            FF has been on consoles even in the game boy advance days (anyone remember that handheld console?), on playstation 1,2, 3, 4 and other consoles….but yet it’s such a niche mmo right?

          • Sucka Free

            I have no interest in your petty argument, I’m just calling you out on your attempt to twist the meaning of what Nelva was saying, implying that he was saying that the Final Fantasy IP is niche.

          • superkarma

            This whole pointless argument he got into stems from him not being able to handle the fact that Xbox fans want something that PS fans have. That’s why he’s trying to downplay the votes in the feedback forum.

            Of course, he’ll deny any of this and try to backpedal like he always does.

          • Dennis Djoenz

            Vious is at it again. What a character pff.

          • Millenia Blue

            also PC fans have Final Fantasy XIV too! and soon Macs as well!

          • Sucka Free

            Now you’re trying (ineptly) to twist my meaning, I didn’t say that FFXIV was a niche MMO, I said that ALL MMO’s are niche on consoles as it is primarily a PC genre.

  • Craig Sloan

    I did not expect this from the Xbox community for this kind of game TBH. Either way Microsoft’s policy is stupid and a 180 will come.

    • http://enria.org/ gbg

      FF is garbage, grow up. How many times can you play the same rescue the princess?!

      • Orichalon Hades

        oh man i can’t even remember the last time i have to save a helpless heroine in Final Fantasy.

      • Craig Sloan

        You obviously have not played FF A Realm Reborn if that’s what you think it’s about. By growing up do you mean sprinting around maps shooting kids online in the face and calling them noobs? No thanks I prefer a deeper game that requires more than that one dimensional train of thought thanks.

      • Michael Norris

        FF ARR is a good MMO,the Ps4 version is awesome and fun.

        • Millenia Blue

          and so is the PC version… and hopefully soon. a Xbox One version.

  • Vious

    nelva also the upcoming happy wars on xbox has cross platform gameplay. therefore I don’t think it’s just a simple “Microsoft policy is preventing cross platform gameplay”….I think there’s more to this story than just said policy.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Happy Wars has cross platform with Xbox 360. That’s inconsequential as it’s still within Xbox Live.

      What there is to this story is what Square Enix said for years. Nothing more, nothing less.

      • Vious

        then it’s not so much cross-platform as it is “cross-service” gaming

        • superkarma

          Xbox is a platform. Playstation is a platform. Generally, any time anyone talks about cross-platform play, this is what they mean.

          Generally, cross-gen is the term that refers to 360 to X1 and PS3 to PS4. I’ve never even seen “cross service” gaming mentioned before.

          • Vious

            yeah I know that’s not a term used, that’s why I had it in quotes, was just to get my point across as to make a distinction between the two, nothing extra about it.

  • マリオ

    I’m definitely in favor of this.

    • Millenia Blue

      Me too!

    I never was a fan of the Final fantasy series but I sure hope MS changes it’s stance

  • MNFNGamer

    Phil do it for the Xbox already so this stop showing up on dualshockers already

  • DLAROC

    Too bad what they want. They knew it wasn’t for their console when they bought the console. Some of us PC gamers want to play Fornza. But you don’t see us crying about it.

      FF hasn’t used that kind of setting since FF VI, and they used that on the main character.

    • Craig Sloan

      Dude you’re obviously an Xbox fanboy and an online FPS guy. This article is not going to be your thing and just because MG and FF require more thought than sprint, kill, die, respawn and repeat doesn’t make them bad. They are great game franchises.

      • Millenia Blue

        LOL to both of you fools!! How do you get that he is a Xbox fanboy and/or a online FPS guy from his post? He said he Hates FF, Metal Gear, and amenesia princess games! That makes him a Xbox fanboy/FPS guy?! ya logic is messed up! LOL!!

      I could say that about most of MS’ worthless first party output.

      • Millenia Blue

        Hey! that’s your opinion.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    But but but, the xtots claim they never beg for our games, that’s odd. Myabe they should just wait for Tomb Raider and stop crying about what they cant have.

    • Vious

      that game isn’t a ps exclusive. it’s available on pc etc.

    • YOUR NAME

      funny???? this game came out on pc first? and PC runs a Microsoft operating system? so in a sense your playing one of OUR games… oh the irony.

      • Jecht_Sin

        FF XIV was a PC game, FF XIV: ARR is multiplatform, and came out on PS3 just after the PC gamers finished beta testing it. :p

      • Michael Norris

        MS owns a monopoly on the Pc market…which is sad.TR sold more on the Playstation platform than any other so don’t try to act like it’s MS game.

        • YOUR NAME

          it was first released on a MS operating system. What does sales have to do with it?!

          i was merely looking to start a flame war.

      • Sucka Free

        When will you fanboys get it through your skulls. The PC is not an MS platform, they only make the popular OS. MS makes nothing from PC gaming, except for the very few games that use GFWL these days. Even that number is shrinking. Steam wouldn’t have stood a chance if MS had played their cards right, but they lost all standing in PC gaming last gen when they tried to kill it so they could sell more consoles. They’ll never get it back.

            Think you mean “you’re” retarded. If you’re going to try to demean somebody’s intelligence, at least try not to sound like a 3rd grader

          • YOUR NAME

            wow! bringing out the grammar are we?

            don’t try and cover up your own shortcomings with pathetic excuses to bring my intelligence down to your level.

            you didn’t read my post and was mistaken, just accept you were wrong and move on.

          • Sucka Free

            No different than you trying to cover up you’re lacking intellect by using petty insults.

          • YOUR NAME

            Grammar on the internet doesn’t determine intellect…

            the fact you couldn’t READ a sentence and interpret what it says shows how stupid you are and there is no denying that.

            and again accept you can’t read and you were wrong and move on.

            im not insecure. i can read. you can’t obviously.

          • Sucka Free

            Now it’s my turn, fanboy. WHERE exactly did I say that grammar determined intellect? And your insecurity shows in the way you seem to need to make yourself feel smarter by insulting others. Anyway, think what you want, I need not prove anything to you.

            You can have the last word now, enjoy

          • YOUR NAME

            why thank you. so generous.

            the reason you are saying i lack intellect because i didn’t use the correct version of “you’re”… that transcribes to you saying grammar determined my intellect.

            im not insulting you on purpose. it’s just you didn’t read! you need not to prove anything to me because you cant prove anything to me.

            bearing in mind you started this argument in a hostile fashion. i had no intentions of insulting you until i fully read your first comment.

            and again, accept you were wrong and put this behind you.

          • Sucka Free

            You’re welcome, son. You seem to need the ego boost and I can afford the charity.

          • YOUR NAME

            no ego boost needed, it’s already at full. but i still appreciate it.

          • Sucka Free

            No no, seriously. Congrats on your victory in this petty argument. I’m sure you don’t enjoy many. Don’t give a moment of thought to the fact that your OP was so ambiguous that it could be interpreted either way (probably due to a failed attempt at sarcasm) or the fact that you’ve been misinterpreting me just as much. Your use of the word, “retarded” has totally won the day for you!! Kudos, Now go bask somewhere

          • YOUR NAME

            again i couldn’t of done it without your nitpicking and poor reading ability. so it really is all because of you. petty? yes it was very petty. a petty argument you started. not really ambiguous it was pretty clear what i wrote. no sarcasm in it at all. misinterpreted you??? point out where i did and i’ll address it and if i was wrong i would accept it. really?… “retarded” won me the day??… slightly disappointing that i didn’t win from the entire proving you wrong thing? just the word… retarded.

          • Sucka Free

            Now you’re just getting greedy. That is all the charity and time that I’m willing to give you. I’m sure you have nothing better to do than to go back and forth like this forever

          • YOUR NAME

            same here but thanks anyways :D.

      • Orichalon Hades

        hoooooollllyyyyy shiiiiiittttttttt

        i didn’t even know that people can reach this level of idiocy.
        I weep for the future.

  • You are flat out wrong

    But I thought Xfriends didn’t beg for PS4 games because it doesn’t have any?

    • YOUR NAME

      it’s a pc game first.

      • Aquadysseus

        Not necessarily. It released on the PS3 at the same time as the PC and 1.0 was also on the PS3.

  • Dennis Djoenz

    I am now officially hooked on FFXIV. Taumaturge is awesome. Going black mage. I’m a noob still lvl 17… again. I changed servers to play with my dutch pals. I have to say I am impressed by the PC community they are freaking helpful with everything! It’s the best thing ever crossplatform gaming.

  • BillyHoWCR

    I am thinking the title should read something closer to… “A very few Xbox One Gamers Want Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Ported to Microsoft’s Console” as I have zero interest and the franchise really isn’t big on the radar of most Xbox Gamers.

    And this “policy against cross-platform gameplay” is not accurate either. MS has had cross platform games in the past and have already stated that no such policy against it is in place.

    MS policies are such a pain for Xbox developers and users. The same is true of Nintendo policies. This leaves Sony Playstation getting more games than Xbox and Nintendo combined.

    • Millenia Blue

      LOL what?! The thing about Nintendo is.. Everyone who buys one. wants to play Nintendo 1st party games. Which 3rd party developers are left out in the cold and it gets even colder. Because the Wii-U hardware sucks! ( for 3rd party developers ) How can Nintendo pick a better GPU ( VS Xbox 360 & PS3 ) But picks a crappy CPU? ( VS Xbox 360 & PS3 ) and knowing the Xbox One & PS4 was coming a year later!! Was the hardware designer eating wild Mushrooms?! Its like. Nintendo made the Wii-U only to run Nintendo 1st party games!….NOT MUCH else! That is stupid!

  • Michael Norris

    This is one of many reasons why i bought a Ps4 over an Xbone.When a policy pushes games away you have an issue.This should never happen and the fact that MS has this ridiculous policy is only hurting them and their user base.

    • Orichalon Hades

      MS has too many stupid policy that they need to get rid of asap.
      This and the launch parity clause for the ID@Xbox is some of them.

      • Millenia Blue

        some Indie games are getting pass that launch parity clause.

  • Millenia Blue

    I voted a long time ago! I’m hopping it comes to Xbox One!!

  • Ritsujun
