    Microsoft removes dev update restrictions on Xbox One, claims Insomniac boss

    Microsoft has introduced revised policies for Xbox One that impose fewer restrictions on developers creating software for the platform.

    Ted Price, head of Resistance developer Insomniac Games, has told Game Informer that the new policies will allow developers the freedom to update more regularly than was possible on Xbox 360.
    "On this generation, it's difficult to have a connection to players where we are getting information including likes and dislikes or actions and then respond quickly," Price said. "The hardware and the publishing policies prevent that kind of response when it comes to consoles."
    "We are seeing a lot of the barriers, mechanical and in terms of policy between developers and players, are coming down," he went on. "This gives us a chance to make more regular changes and updates to the game based on what players are telling us and what we are observing them do. We'll have an opportunity to create a much more living world."
    This backs prior unconfirmed reports that Microsoft had lifted its policy of charging developers a sizeable sum for releasing game patches across Xbox Live.
    Until now Microsoft has charged games studios a fee to enrol their games in a certification process that tests for bugs and approves code for release. It is claimed that many developers are offered one title update free of charge, but subsequent re-certification (in the event of a patch or bug fix) comes with a charge of tens of thousands of dollars.
    Double Fine studio manager Tim Schafer has previously claimed the cost to patch Xbox Live games is $40,000 - a prohibitive sum for smaller indie outfits.
    The removal of such charges and other related restrictions is most significant to small indie developers who lack the resources to test games as thoroughly as the larger publishers.http://www.computerandvideogames.com...VG-General-RSS

    Self publishing is the big one they need to solve.

    I was referring to Two's comment about self publishing for indies. We've seen Sony leading and MS following with their flip flopping on policies. Waiting to see if MS is going to do a 180 on that one too.

    What are the new costs of publishing/updating for devs? Articles from over a year ago don't mean jack $#@!. It is a new gen we are talking about.

    Here's to hoping that self-publishing comes next. If I see games like Outlast and DayZ coming to Xbox, I may just get the One.

    I haven't heard anything about them dropping update restrictions. As far as I know both sony and MS charged devs to update/patch their games. I haven't heard Sony has done the same.

    so the whole argument about them leading is about update restrictions and Sony hasn't dropped them and Microsoft has?

    That all depends who the everybody is. The consoles haven't been released yet. It's still early in the game.
