Admittedly I just scanned the article since its a copy of a copy..

But these devs need to get over themselves. People have tons of questions about their offerings that never get answered..

They aren't customers. They want to profit from the platform. Its seems ridiculous to me that they feel like they should have this system catered to them.

If they don't like what Microsoft offers them, then go elsewhere. Just as customers should

As it always seems the case with Microsoft, more questions than straight answers.

By being region-free and having every Xbox One serve as a debug kit, Microsoft has literally opened a world of indie development. If gamers in Japan don't like all the "western crap" on the Xbox.. they actually have the power to make the eastern game they've been wanting. Of-course there will be fees... this is where Microsoft can demonstrate how "indie-friendly" they want to be.

Well, the info WAS a leak. Expecting questions answered immediately about something that wasn't supposed to be known until GamesCon isn't exactly reasonable, no?
