Minecraft developer Notch and others say the Xbox One does nothing to impress

Indie game developers not impressed with Xbox One

Yesterday's Xbox One announcement did little to impress most of the tech community. We were expecting to see truly innovative things like IllumiRoom, and much higher graphics quality levels than what Microsoft delivered.

Independent game developers such as Minecraft's Markus "Notch" Persson said that "I tried to get excited about the Xbox One, but failed.". Developer of Super Meat Boy, Tommy Refenes chimed in with his thoughts as well. "So as someone who doesn't play Forza or any EA Sports games and already has a computer hooked up to my TV, what does Xbox One offer me?"

 

With big name Indie developers turning their nose up at the new console, and the majority of the tech world appearing to be quite unimpressed, it leaves one to wonder what was Microsoft thinking? Of course, there are just as many of the non-techies who want to do nothing more than play FIFA and Madden, and still be able to watch TV, with just a shout of one's voice.
