Demo version not a "must" anymore on Xbox Live

Development teams who want their games to be included in the Xbox Live offer of Arcade games on Xbox 360 had to make sure to offer players a demo version so that everyone could try out a game before buying. Microsoft was the one that insisted on this practice but not so long after the release of Xbox One they confirmed that this practice will become a past tense.

In a move that would have made Steve Jobs proud Microsoft is apparently leaning on developers to only develop for their Xbox One platform or delay any release for other console platforms. The news comes as developer Witch Beam, is claiming that due to restrictions in the ID@Xbox program they are being forced to delay their new game Assault Android Cactus because they already have plans to launch games on other consoles.

It represented a completely different approach to software and operating system design. In 2008 Microsoft released the last version of Singularity was released to the public from Microsoft and the project was “officially” ended in 2010.

After the announcement of both the SteamOS and the Steam Machine (most call it the Steam Box) we read more than a few naysayers that were claiming Valve would have a hard time competing in the market. The theory behind these arguments is that the incumbents, Microsoft and Sony, are so entrenched in the market that gamers and regular consumers will not want to move away from those platforms. The problem with that theory is that many consumers are not too happy with the current state of the console gaming market. Anyone that watched the furor that unfolded after the launch of the Xbox One or the mass complaints after the PSN (Play Station Network) knows that this market is not a happy one.
