Two I forgot to add - will there be an exclusivity requirement, and, will Microsoft allow cross-platform play with PS4/PC owners? The second one's not really an indie-specific question, I guess.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I received a 4 day Press Pass to GamesCom but only this week and I think financially its too late to go. I would love to be there when these questions are answered. Maybe a miracle will happen between now and then....

"Sony, it's worth noting, has also failed to share real details of how this will work" - of course the haven't told us. Has Sony actually told us anything since their launch, I don't think I've read anything? That's why I refuse to get a PS4 (also because it's inferior), because Microsoft are totally honest about what they're doing and they're telling us everything we want to know, but there's still loads that Sony are withholding from us, and I don't want to fund a company like that.
