Since I got moderated by this I will go more indepth why indies won't do good on Xboner; It's quite obvious that M$ is going after the dudebro market (with all the sports games and CoD: Ghosts), and they ain't interested in indie games. The second reason is that indie devs needs a publisher to get a game out on xbla - and that's just hurting indie devs, not helping them in anyway.

If you're a indie dev you best go to Sony or Nintendo; there you can publish your own game (without a publisher) and you can set your own pricing. If M$ had their way the indie market would dry up and die, and I've already diven the reasons above. M$ seem to be all about Dudebros and casuals (Kinect) this time around. That's sad.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

you think their lying?

I don't think they actually care. If they wanted the indies they wouldn't make it so damn hard for indies to publish on the Xboner. Just look at what Sony and Nintendo are doing - THAT'S how it's done. If you want indie this gen you better stay away from MicroSoft.

I don't think we should use "Xboner" for the console, we should use "Xbone". We could use "Xboner" for the Xbone owners = Xbone + owner = Xboner = plural = Xboners. My two cents.


LOL Its so funny but whenever I write Xbone...I have to stop myself from writing Xboner. MS really really made it so easy this gen. LOL

While Microsoft approach to idies isn't as good as Nintendo's new method I don't think they will have a lack of good indie games for the Xbox one but eh.

Considering how the indie community have reacted to the Xboner I'd say you better get another console if you wanna play those kind of games. Sure, Xboner WILL get indies, just not as many as PS4 or Wii U I think.

The way I see it..it's just like when Netflix went on 360....Every Sony fan said it was not important..Now Sony claims PS3 is the best platform for Netflix....

See what I did there....ok you just let me know

so If MS is all about "dudebros" and "Casual" what is PS4 going for?

your wrong...XBox Live had the Community games channel for inde to self publish..

Xboner > Xbot

They will not allow self publish because that way they force indies to find a publisher, usually MS themselves, and MS will demand it comes to XBLA exclusively or timed exclusive or they will not publish.

Hopefully indies just say F*** MS and stick to PS4, WiiU and PC.

This is good. That way I won't see XBLA infested with "Luca No" type of games. Anyone serious about making games should take MS's offer. Indies sell more on 360.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

Microsoft's policy hasn't changed, yet we have seen plenty of indie games on the 360. They can complain about it all they want but in the end it boils down to money, and that is something that can be made quite easily when they make games for XBLA. 

I'm not saying Microsoft's policy on this issue is good, but it never stopped indie developers from making games for MS's systems before and it won't stop them now.

XBLA is filled with variety that more then offsets the retail stereotypes.Seriously....every year it gets creative and innovative games in multiple genres.

bros don't play Minecraft, Fez, Battleblock theatre......

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

MS basically says they will publish all indie games....essentially funding all game developement.

You then have indie guys who can afford to self publish....offcourse expressing outrage. But this strategy isn't necessarily bad......

XBLA will get plenty games, from developers who can't afford to make them themselves.
