Interview discussing problems with XBLA
« on: March 30, 2008, 11:02:46 PM »
This is an interview with the developers of the XBLA game N+:

I found it very interesting, as I had no idea there were so many problems getting games approved and released for the service. This article sheds fresh light on the comments from 5pb about how MS refused to greenlight XBLA versions of Ketsui, DDP:DOJ BL, and other arcade ports.

That was an interesting read. Thanks, EOJ. :)

I'm sure the devs didn't mean to criticize heavily on Microsoft's rules and standards for XBLA games, but it's certainly an interesting insight on how it goes on behind the closed doors when it comes to getting games approved for Live.

N+ is an amazing game. Worth the 800 points I paid for.
