Microsoft launches games and tech accelerator in London

"If you're a technology or gaming start-up with a great team, a great idea and an unfaltering belief in what you do, you are the perfect candidate for the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator in London," said Anand Krishnan, general manager of Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft.

"Microsoft is committed to helping startups grow their business by providing access to our ecosystem of partners and routes-to-market."

-Microsoft seems hungry for some of Kickstarter's creative success lately. (Dev, Industry, Kickstarter, Microsoft, Xbox One)

Great job MS, good to see that you are not only providing a good system for gamers but great support for the devs making them.

I wonder why this article is so empty? Where are the usual's claiming this is a PR stunt or some evil NSA plot?

Any MS good news I guess is repellent for most.

They haven't found a way to spin it as evil and bad yet

Do not worry, somebody is working on it.

It'll probably sound like:

Sony has been working hand in hand with Indie devs for years. Now that Micro$oft is getting left in the dust with Preorders 800:1, they want to act all buddy buddy, while copying yet another of sony's moves. NSA will watch you play Kinectimals and arrest you for it. I have more flops than you #getoverit.

It's ok. Some MS fans simply can't stop themselves from poking a sleeping dog. Instead of enjoying what is simply good news for the industry, someone will use this as a reason to start the mud slinging.

That's what I think to myself every time I open a Xbox only article

Microsoft is spreading there seed. Lol doing this is really good idead now your looking at possibly new game studios all over the world and now your gonna be looking at probably new exclusive xbox one game every year. So looks like xbox one is gonna have a crap load of exclusive games this time around.
