See what you did there

Microsoft’s holding a gun to the heads of indie developers, forcing them to deploy their wares on the Xbox One at the same time as other systems or forget releasing them on the format at all.

In reverse

Well, this is strange. Normally, we don’t learn about the contents of the European PlayStation Store update until at least a day after the North American refresh, but due to some technical issues over the pond, it’s the old world that’s seizing the opportunity to go first.
