Indie Devs Unhappy with New Xbox Dashboard Update, Comments

Microsoft has been getting a lot of slack recently about their most recent Xbox dashboard update. The update makes it all but impossible to find independent games. (Casual games, Industry, Tech, Xbox 360)

'The update makes it all but impossible to find independent games'

Completely bogus lie..

I go to Games Marketplace just like I always have. The Indie games box is HUGE..

Click on it and Kotakus fave..new releases..popular..contest finalists are right there..

ANYONE on ANY website pretending it's 'impossible' to find Indies as compared to ANY dashboard is literally blind or does not own a 360..

This is what Hip Hop Gamer has passed on to gaming journalist.

Flame bait headline with no solid explanation or proof = hits.

I particularly like how the video attached to the article shows the opposite of your comment. The Indie box is HUGE (if you highlight the middle box under Games and use the right stick to scroll to Indie, with no instruction to do so). Convenient you left that out.

I particuliarly lke how I turned my Xbox on went to games and the was the HUGE indie box that said..wait for it..INDIE GAMES..

And with OMG OMG no instructions I clicked on it and found the indie games section. And the funny part is they made it easier to see the games with larger boxes advertising each games.

You wouldnt ACTUALLY know how easy it is because you don't own a 360..but you conveniently left that out.

Disagreeing means I don't have an Xbox?

I guess that's the only way you can understand a 360 owner thinking the 360 and its services are not the end all be all. How's that crow taste?

The strengths of the new dash are ease of use, yet, you can't find content and are mobbed by ads. Deflect more, please, it's rather funny. Ignore the video, YOU found it so all should be able to.

Its not that apparent if your not used to the dashboard. They threw everything under Game Type, there you can choose from your arcade, indie, original xbox, and Kinect.

I have a lot of Indie games and i'm always in and out of this channel. It's fair to say that how it is now is a bit fussy. Som of you here i would guess don't buy from Indie and so would slam such an argument. It could and should be easier is all and it had me fooled for a while- some people give up altogether if they can't find something and it's not in MS's best interest that they do this- unless they purposely want the channel to die

I also didn't know you could toggle wth the right stick while on the middle square
