2K tootttalllly shutdown Irrational. Four million is a lot, but it's not a lot for the amount of time they spent making BioShock Infinite.
They took 5 years. The game came out, and then the disc version of Minecraft on Xbox 360 outsold BioShock Infinite on PS3 and Xbox 360 combined. It didn't even make the top 10, according to NPD. I'm betting Take-Two thought that was unacceptable.
Is it shitty that Levine is happily taking a new job while everyone loses their jobs around him? Possibly. But I think you can also read his announcement as him taking the responsibility for laying everyone off.
On Xbox One versus PS4 resolution: I think this is definitely hurting Microsoft. I also think it is weird that Microsoft released a system that can't run all of these games with ease.
However, in addition to the DirectX drivers, apparently Microsoft plans to update the Xbox One to free up 8 percent of the 10 percent of the RAM it is currently reserving for the OS. It will let developers use that. It should help.
On Xbox One versus PlayStation 4 sales: Mike asked how can the number for January be low (PS4: 280K One: 145,000) if Sony announced it crossed 5 million in total sales. Well, because those NPD sales are U.S. only and Sony's 5 million number is worldwide.
It's just one month, so I wouldn't read too much into it, but if March comes and Titanfall doesn't move more Xbox Ones than PS4s, then I think Microsoft will consider some drastic actions.
