Goodbye Xbox Live Community Games….Hello Xbox Live Indie Games

Xboxinsider writes: Microsoft have announced that they are changing the name of the "Community Games" to "Indie Games", the name change was done in response to community feedback, to increase understanding and promote the games.

The launch of XNA Game Studio 3.1 begins the process of renaming Xbox LIVE Community Games to Xbox LIVE Indie Games. We're starting the communication about this transition with you – our incredible Creators. With your help hopefully this name change (along with other new features such as User Ratings!) will increase understanding and discoverability of your games! Late July, when we update Creators Club Online, we will begin revealing the name change to the Consumer side of our business. We believe this name better represents the independent spirit of XNA Game Studio gaming and creations!

I have to admit, the new name sounds a lot better, maybe this will increase buy rates? Highly doubtful, but we'll see.

I prefer that name a lot better, perhaps we'll see some nice talent appearing now because of the 'Indie' tag.
