Couldn't agree more... they completely alienated their core following when they dropped the Boxee Box. I wouldn't go within half a mile of anything they produce ever again. Thanks so much for the boxeeplus link!
..it's the publishers. Most publishers will only play it safe, sticking to established brands and themes. I'm sure there are a hell of a lot of game dev studios out there with great game ideas, but what's the point if no-one will publish it?
Playing devil's advocate, perhaps the publishers have a point. Today's game-buying community loves franchises (FIFA, Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda), loves playing the same game over and over again (CoD) and virtually ignores great new games (Enslaved, Bayonetta).
Another vote for RiscOS here, along with proper 3-button mice and Econet connectivity!
I went through the whole article waiting for Lander to be mentioned. It surely was the best bundled game of all time.
Why would anyone want to do that?
You've obviously never met my boss.
