    Rumour: Microsoft to announce Xbox One self-publishing at Build

    http://www.vg247.com/2013/06/24/rumo...hing-at-build/
    Microsoft developer conference is June 26-28
    Microsoft might be playing a little catch-up to Sony’s effort in helping indie-devs self-publish on its platform, if rumour is to be believed.

    As noted on NeoGaf, Microsoft may be about to announce a self-publishing system for indies at its Build Developer Conference on Wednesday.

    There are some interesting tweets from Notch, Supernnauation and others, suggesting something may be about to happen as regards making Xbox One more indie-friendly.

    If true, Microsoft may be taking note of general calls to diversify Xbox One’s content.

    The talk comes after Microsoft u-turned on a ton of Xbox One DRM policies and dropped the need for the console to make an online check-in every 24 hours.

    I think both platforms are followers because IOS devices have been leading in that area.

    True but its obvious MS is being influenced by Sony's decisions and the consumer response to them.

    Yup, agreed. Xbox already led the indie market with XBLIG, not to mention XBLA. Add this to the mix, and it's pretty much wrapped up.

    Imitation is sincerest form of flattery. MS was on a path to doom with its retarded vision and policies so it's good to see them emulating Sony's wiser policies. Seriously, if they don't do this, MS can kiss good bye to indie support.

    **** is hitting the fan at MS. They are pretty much back-tracking on all of the bad decisions that they have made, but this begs the question why. To just say that we should be thankful that they are doing this is nothing short of idiotic so please don't even go there unless you're an MS sheep.

    Where they that stupid to begin with or did they just think they could get away with it with all of the MS sheep blindly following them no matter what? I'm still not sold on the One but they are making the right moves. I need to hear some real world stories about the cloud before I consider getting one.

    MS actually led the pack with Indie game support so it's actually nice to see Sony follow suit this next gen. Hopefully we get community supported indie games from our PS4 this time around.

    Early on, but that changed drastically. They went from one extreme to the next in a very short period of time. MS failed to help small devs by waiving patch fees that were needed to fix a game. Sure you can argue that it should have been caught but even the big devs miss bugs. MS not only screwed the dev but short-changed gamers as well.

    It's like MS discarded the indie dev after they got what they wanted from them.

    Looks like saw two different things then. Not only did the indie games grow but MS listened and put their games back in better positioning in the marketplace. Now with Xbox One they are getting placed with all games for even better exposure. The Xbox 360 has 4500 games, about 3/4 of them are indie games. Imagine Xbox One exposing even more of those. The community voting and rating system helped make them so popular.

    Needs to happen for the good of the industry. They also need to drop that silly rule about refusing to put a game on XBLA that released on PSN first.

    A few people are getting confused between indies, indie gaming and XBLA.

    MS has always had a place for indie gamers.

    This is about the ones that want to step up to the more professional level.

    MS has always said they need a publisher to do this, if they didn't have a publisher they needed to go under MS, and that meant timed exclusivity.
    Not a very nice position to be in.

    This pretty much sums it up, at least on the next gen consoles deal. They're desperately trying to be equal as PS4.
