Microsoft Allowing Indie Self-Publishing

It looks as though Microsoft is allowing independent studios to self-publish on the Xbox One. While I am sure people are still going to whine about the console, this is another step in the right direction.

Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We'll have more details on the program and the timeline at gamescom in August.
