Question.....

How is it a reversal? It seems as if Microsoft were just not playing all of their cards at one time. Surely they didn't all of a sudden come out and say "Hey, why not just make every console a dev unit?"

That was decided from the beginning, and they were probably gonna spring it up on a later date.

Of course I have been wrong before.

The term "reversal" applies because - afaik - Microsoft said that the same rules from Xbox Live Arcade on 360 would also apply to Xbox One.

And those rules did not allow for self-publishing.

Question...

If it wasn't a reversal, why would Microsoft need to announce it? Perhaps "change in policy" is a more comfortable description.

But more to the OT, SMT4 is awesome-sauce. Any 3DS owner needs to try it out. Very old-school, but very good.
