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.

XNA was pretty disliked, until MSFT depreciated it of course.

Just like MSFT does with almost every API they produce.

Most of the new APIs are either incredibly similar to old ones or they are an improvement.

Also the old APIs tend to live forever anyway. I still regularly work on .NET 1.1 code.

Yeah, not like he cares anyway. Its disingenuous bullshit to get a pot shot at MSFT.

Non developers commenting on dev topics and pretending they know what they're saying is cute.

Just trolling Nelson. I wasn't trying to make a serious debate about APIs. ;)
