Schafer: All Devs Want Is to Be Treated Reasonably
Double Fine boss Tim Schafer believes platform holders can easily win over developers simply by treating them reasonably.
Speaking with OXM at this year’s PAX East, Schafer explained how the PlayStation 4 shows promise, thanks to the steps being taken to make it a more welcoming platform for developers. He said:
“Yeah, I mean it’s not that hard to win over developers because all we want is to be treated with just a little bit of reason. Because often you just get told the most unreasonable, crazy things and you’re like ‘really? That’s how you’re going to treat us?’ Just doing things like letting us patch our games when we want to, put our games on sale and release our games in territories that they should be released in – just doing a few things like that can make a developer very enamored of you.”
While I am a hardcore PC gamer, I must admit that Sony is making some good decisions with the PS4. What do you think?
