Is it just me or does every software development gig in the Philippines basically fall under software service companies? Be it outsourcing or consulting or support systems.
To be honest, I probably haven't looked hard enough. But, then again, having to look too hard for them is altogether the question. Are there any Philippine companies working on their own software products?
Don't tell me to start my own because if I had an idea I thought would sell then I'd have done it already. I'm just tired of working for companies whose primary concern is to maximize profit margins from their man-day costs by throwing enough cheap developers at every project. I want to try working for a company with a good incentive for getting the best developers to work on their product.

You have point there, most are BPO, the following though do have products they develop and market.
1.) My former company www.cormant.com - develops CableSolve (an it asset, infrastructure and connectivity management),w/c is being used by several companies(one being leader of connectivity) to manage connectivity and IT asset). (naks marketing to ah)
2.) This is one is an mISV of my good friend -GSoft Solutions Inc. - develops library based software, used by a lot of schools here in the Philippines.

Xackup is a Philippine-based file synchronisation and file backup products company. We're currently presenting our new product called Insync in the States looking for potential customers now. We build all the elements of the system (Windows and Mac Desktop clients, Website, Web Responder) and we're nearing our public beta (hopefully November). Another one, its sister company called PiKitchen and we started building iPhone apps earlier this year.
So to answer your question: Yes. And yeah, they are Philippine-based.
Also, most companies who do their own software products are leaning towards mobile or Desktop gaming like Anito.
