Damn, MS isn't playing. Hosting events like that are major mulah, (and commitment) these kinds of moves will definitely produce a lot of interest from devs. Hopefully it's like an E3 for devs who don't have multi-million(billion) dollar publishers backing them.

To clarify, I realize this year it will not be like a e3/gamescom for indie games, I just mean over time.

Cool we is I could attend.

It's a good move to give these games some publicity of their own outside the larger trade shows. Will be interesting to see what they have on the floor.

Will they be announcing anything at this event?

The blog doesn't seem to suggest that, but you never know. It's tough to keep track of all the previously-announced games they've had between E3 and Gamescom already so it sounds reasonable those 25 were in the montages before.

Thats pretty cool on MS behalf. No games will be left behind at Xbox. Yeah baby...

As most know, this "Indie movement" thing has driven me nuts.

But this is actually great to give the Indie devs their own stage in sorts to show off their games.

There are a handful of Indoes I really do want to play:

The Inside
Ori and the Blind Forrest
Super Hot
Cup Head
