MS really is giving indie developers a hard time. It's a very interesting article, check it out.

Great article that presents both sides. XBL definately needs to lax some of its rules if it wants to do any better. In particular, I think it would've made more sense if they actually gave benefits to developers willing to stay exclusive.

The argument about wanting XBL to only have quality games is invalidated simply by the awful D&D game that just came out which is full of bugs.

If you're talking about Daggerdale, that was made by a third party company. The article was probably saying that putting games through third parties generally results in better products, not that every single one would be flawless.
