Games Microsoft will allow self-publishing on the Xbox One - Every Xbox One will be a development unit. "Our vision is that every person can be a creator. 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." No matter how much Microsoft screwed up the initial PR around the new Xbox, this is just awesome news.

They must be desperate for developers

If they have to make every unit a dev unit, then there really must be a lack of interest in the platform by normal game publishers, so they're just that desperate to get developers to make games. Sad really; but probably shows where the platform is the toilet.
