Indie Devs Say Xbox One Self-Publishing Is ''A Move In The Right Direction''

Reports surfaced earlier today that Microsoft would make Xbox One publishing more like that of the iOS App Store by, for example, removing costs that Xbox 360 developers incur to release software updates, setting their own prices and allowing retail Xbox One units to serve debug kits.

Absolutely terrible news for the N4G crowd though.

If you dont like it you could always leave you bitch so much about the "n4g crowd" i dont see anyone pointing a gun at your head saying you should stay.

What are you talking about? This is great news for those buying X1. I'm happy for you. It doesn't change what I think of Microsoft, but it's a step in the right direction for their fanbase.

abzdine1823d ago

good news indeed for future owners, i just know i'm not one of them.
but it's fun the same people were saying indie games is shit it's not a big deal and now it's the best news ever.

Funny how you say that, last time I checked you were apart of the N4G crowd as well. If you weren't, you wouldn't be posting here.

@majiebeast and the rest.

If you are so bothered by people complaining about the huge crowds of Sony fanboys who comes to every Xbox one article and share with us their "wisdom" then simply you and the others stop coming to articles about a console that you people have no intention of buying. Nobody's holding a gun on all of you forcing you to buy an Xbox one.

See? It works both ways.

A lot of peoples PS4 exclusive list is going to be a whole lot shorter now since all those f2p and indie games will be going multiplat.

mushroomwig1823d ago

Not really, there are plenty of people who will only be buying a PS4.

GameCents1823d ago

Not really a response to what he said is it?

MonChiChi1823d ago

Just stop. Sony out did MS in exclusives if you don't count the million kinect games they released. They will do it again this gen. This is what makes the Sony brand so strong, the exclusives.

For me my exclusives list is just waiting to expand once the likes of Naughty Dog and others start talking about their next gen games.

HammadTheBeast1823d ago

Planetside 2, DCUO, Mercenary Kings, Octodad, The Witness.

Maybe you should cut out Titanfall and Dead Rising as well, since they're going multiplat as well.

Before you say no, Mass Effect.

theWB271823d ago

Mass Effect isn't a good example. Bioware was independent when it released and then EA bought them up. ME 2 and 3 weren't published by Microsoft so it was a given they would come once that acquisition happened.

There's speculation to how Mass Effect 1 came to PS3...I'm guessing Microsoft got a nice little payment from EA in order to make that happen.

In the case of Dead Rising...the first never came to a different console, the second did, so is it to far fetched to believe it went back to exclusivity?

WeAreLegion1823d ago

I'm sure Warframe will go multi-plat, but Planetside 2 and DC Universe Online are Sony IP's.
