Conference went alright, I guess. It was pretty marred by the fact that I had NO desire for the console at all so it didn't have my full attention but normally I think it would've been successful. It was really surprising to see no mention of Kinect and no crappy social games. I really hope the Capy game won't be exclusive forever. :( It looked really good and I love their stuff. But I'm not getting an Xbone for one indie game. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it came from a patent. So yeah, Microsoft could decide to go that way but it's more likely they just patented it so that no one else would go that way (or else they could sue). I don't think they'd get away with something like that and they must be aware of it.
