Microsoft Allows Self-Publishing On Xbox One

Microsoft announced that Xbox One developers will be able to self-publish their games directly and that they will be able to develop and test their Xbox One games using the retail console.

This is a radical change from Xbox 360 publishing rules which prevented developers from bringing their games to the console without going through a publisher. Additionally, Xbox 360 games can be developed and tested only using an expensive development kit that is sold to approved studios only.

"Our vision is that every person can be a creator," said Xbox corporate VP Marc Whitten. "That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We'll have more details on the program and the timeline at gamescom in August."

"Our vision is that every person can be a creator," said Xbox corporate VP Marc Whitten. No, their vision is the exact opposite. This is just their way of saying, "Ok, ok, we messed up really bad. Please take this pretend compassion as a peace offering. Can we have your money yet?"

shitbox

HAha There cant be many rungs on the ladder to climb back down.....im an avid xbox fan.....had one since the original one came out.....but sony has got my pre order now for 2 consoles......if everyone boycotts ms soft......they might actually learn something........

twat

you sad wanker switching to the pile of shite 4 the xbox one wil be better then the ps4 you sad wankers need to do some research into the ps4 before you all go preordering it cos you think its better. theres a lot of stuff about the ps4 that's really bad that no one know about because sony never anounced it at there reveal like having to pay for there shite online and having to pay for other stuff that was free on ps3. plus its only cheaper than the xbox because they aren't supplying one of there shite eye thing with every console you have to buy one for extra.

Subject back flips are fun

Yup, people spoke with their wallets, end users and publishers alike, M$ have done some serious backflips and they probably aren't finished yet. That said, we need both consoles to be competitive, I dread a world where either of these 2 companies have a stranglehold on console gaming, they both want to rape our wallets and will if they get half a chance.

heh

Just because some half-wit such as yourself thinks consoles are bad doesn't make it fact. I play most of my games on my PC, but I own consoles as well and enjoy them. What is the problem with that? If you don't like them, don't buy them. Just don't tell me what the hell to do with the money I earn. In short, shut the hell up you moron.
