@BenjaminBanklin: The game was developed by a third party. This makes it a third party game. If the game was developed by one of Microsoft many studios it would be a first party game but it wasn't. Don't redefine the definition.

I think the Switch is an experiment, with the hypothesis being "if we promise people they can play a game anywhere, then they won't care if it looks like absolute garbage".
Good for Nintendo for being focused on gameplay, even if it is regressive and pointless.
I wonder how the market would react to Nintendo handhelds with the introduction of game streaming?
What I think is sad is Microsoft gave away exclusives to Nintendo but Nintendo never sends some to xbox. Its like a one sided friendship.
You mean the games are free on the Switch?
@BenjaminBanklin: The struggle is real for you bud. Ori is a third party game. It factually was not made by ANY entity owned by Microsoft. That makes it a third party game. A game is classified as a first party game when it is MADE by the company. Ownership of the IP doesn't determine the classification. When you realize your argument failed you backpedaled to "First party IP". Nice try though.
Ori is NOT a third party game. Why else would MS refer to "We have no plans to further expand our exclusive first party games to other consoles"? This is the topic. Please take your meds before posting.
Moon Studios is an independent video game development studio, founded in 2010 by Thomas Mahler (former Cinematic Artist at Blizzard Entertainment) and Gennadiy Korol (former Senior Graphics Engineer at Animation Lab).
Ori and the Blind Forest was made by Moon Studios. Moon Studios is a third part developer for Microsoft.
Next time you type, try using facts instead. Considered yourself owned yet again. :)
FPS = First Person Shooter.
First party = self
Third party = not self.
Ryse, Ori and Sunset Overdrive are all third party games.
The meltdown is bad with this one. 😂
