With all of the great independant content on the internet (Line Rider anyone?)
An open forum for games is bound to yield some very creative games

-Xbox 360 titles
-Windows Games initiative
-XNA + youTUBE
-MEDIA CENTER(integration)
-SURFACE TOUCH(technology)

and they Say MS is not trying to push much...

I'm happy to be an Xbox 360 owner, with the titles coming out. I think this new idea will catch on, having indie devs develop games and being able to share them and posting videos. Sweeet Idea.

This is a better contribution to the industry than what any other company(ex SONY) has done.

Microsoft is really serious about this industry, providing chances of innovation for the future, for gamers & developers.
