    Development on Xbox One is a wonderful idea, says Notch..

    Mojang boss Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has welcomed Microsoft’s move to turn every Xbox One into a devkit, describing it as a “wonderful idea”.

    Microsoft confirmed earlier this week that it will allow developers to publish their own titles on Xbox One, while also revealing that every Xbox One can be used for development.
    “I think it’s a wonderful idea to have the actual box be the dev kits,” Notch told us. “This makes is easier for both the developer and for Microsoft, and presumably they could make it a lot cheaper since they’d only sell unlock codes. I realize there are other factors at play here, though, like a perceived need to make sure only ‘legitimate’ developers get access to it, so a monetary barrier might still be in place.”
    Notch’s optimism tallies with those of the other developers we’ve spoken to on this subject – you can read their thoughts here.

    Wait isn't this half the article
    I'm sure I've read this on gaf when he says this is a great idea but theres a hidden policies and he has no intention on buying a X1 let alone develope for it and his experience with MS with 360 was the worse time in his career.

    Edit: different dev

    I'm very happy to see this. After all of the developers have spoken out, they're finally listening. However, this is yet another example of them changing policy, but it sounding better than it is when the whole story is revealed. Make no mistake; while this is a great thing, it's again not the equivalent to what other platforms offer. On PS4, for example, developers can tap right into the system; use every bit of RAM and all of its power. Indies have access to everything that the AAA studios do, from platform support to development and release. The indication on Xbox One is that it's essentially XBLIG 2.0. Instead of XNA, it's Windows 8. Windows 8, which is already struggling to gain developer interest, will gain a boost from developers wishing to target the console. However, it won't be as full-fledged as published games on the system.

    After my experience working with them to release on Xbox 360, I have no interest in even buying an Xbox One, let alone developing for it. The policy changes are great, but they don't undo the experience I had. I'm not ready to forget what I went through. Working with Microsoft was the unhappiest point of my career. Policies are one thing, but developer relations are another.

    It's important to me that consumers don't see things as black and white. There are still strings attached to this policy change.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....
