It's interesting that they've dropped the changes for patches.

Indies in general move the entertainment industry forward. They will play a big part in differentiating next gen consoles. Look at how titles like Journey, Rain, Puppeteer is helping Sony in the current Gen.

Everyone should fully embrace indies. I've enjoyed more indie games than AAA games over the past couple of years. They provide a great escape from the homogeneity of modern AAA gaming, where everything is either trying to clone CoD or Uncharted.

I think your comment is more worthy of an agree than a disagree megaton, which makes me wonder why you have more disagrees at this point. I'll try to even it out though. Ps maybe it's your avatar? :P

Because there are those that still hold on to COD, Battlefield and Assassin's Creed to be the top tier echelons of the current gaming industry both in creative AND innovative standpoint.

Indie games will play a big part in the nex gen of gaming.
AAA developers have too much money riding on a game that they can not afford to take chance - indie developers can afford to take more risk and they dont have share holders rushing them or telling them what can and can not be in a game.

Here is hoping the indies next gen keep there freedom but also get hardware that is affordable can can provide stunning graphics and physics.
