I can't wait to see if this spawns some really good studios. And adds some spice to the XBWon. Kudos to Microsoft.

With programs like this i wouldnt be surprised if they make all those and even new IP every year.

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

So looks like xbox one is gonna have a crap load of exclusive games this time around.
