the indie games into the overall games section for the xbox one.

Not sure if that will be for the 360 as well. right now, there is still the indie games section.

They are actually integrating into the main games section so they won't be hidden away in some obscure corner of the o/s dashboard, they will be right along side full priced AAA games- much better IMO

Or maybe it occurred to microsoft that not a good number of people bother with the indies section, so they decided to funnel all types of games into one general 'games' section so as to make no discrimination.

Honestly, I believe that's a good move.

"Microsoft vows to support indie developers on Xbox One"...

Okay Microsoft, Prove it!

Why does it need to be a program? Just allow them to self publish.
