GI Show 165: Microsoft's Indie Reversal, Shadowrun, Shin Megami Tensei

Game Informer - Another week, another reversal of an Xbox One policy. This time, Microsoft is relenting and making the console more open to indie development. We also talk about two great new RPGs. (Culture, Shadowrun , Shin Megami Tensei )

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.


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.
