Rumour: Microsoft Will Announce Xbox One Self-Publishing At Build

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Rumour: Microsoft Will Announce Xbox One Self-Publishing At Build

As noted on NeoGaf, Microsoft may be about to announce a self-publishing system for indies at its Build Developer Conference on Wednesday.

There are some interesting tweets from Notch, Supernnauation and others, suggesting something may be about to happen as regards making Xbox One more indie-friendly.

If true, Microsoft may be taking note of general calls to diversify Xbox One’s content.

The talk comes after Microsoft u-turned on a ton of Xbox One DRM policies and dropped the need for the console to make an online check-in every 24 hours.

See. With 5 months to go, thats a luxury MS can take to fix these things before the thing comes out.

Dont know why this is even a issue in the first place......indie devs typically need to be published and only the larger indie studios can afford to self publish.

But w/e, more games and less PS fans using it as a con.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

lol. Microsofts message post E3: "Tell us what to do with the console since we clearly have no idea what we're doing"

In all seriousness, this is good news if true.



After that they'll make Kinect optional, and change the name to XB3



I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.

I wonder how many are getting fired for the massive frak up that was the Xones early days.

MS new tagline should be, we promises to do what Sony does if you don't buy or product.

3 things I want, name change, more power and cheaper price, aren't going to happen. All the things I don't care about DRM, Online, Region locked, indie, kinect ect probably will change. Joy!!
