Microsoft confirms Self-publishing for Xbox One

xbox-one Can we just name this thing the Xbox 180 already? Microsoft has confirmed the rumor that it would be making another policy reversal–this time dealing with indie self-publishing. To be exact: In a comment to Kotaku, Xbox vice president Marc Whitten said:

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.
