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.

Sony is very open with indie developers, and the requirements to get devkits are very low.

The devkits also gradually resemble production devices more and more.

Microsoft had a shitbag attidue towards smallers studios for a decade, so i'm very glad they are going this way.
